A lifelong Virginian, graduate of Sweet Briar College, and assistant editor at The Virginian-Pilot, Emily Slingluff had 3 miscarriages and, later, spent 7 1/2 months of a pregnancy in bed. She has 2 very dear children... a son who is married, and pracices as a surgeon and cancer researcher, and a daughter who is married and has two grown daughters of her own.
Emily loves life and appreciates nature in all of its forms, especially the ocean. Writing and thinking about parenting have filled much of the time of her adult life.
A director of Norfolk Academy, the school where her children attended for many years before college, asked Emily what she had "done with them" before they entered the first grade. That simple question and her subsequent answer led to her first book and her career as a speaker and expert on parenting.
Author of 3 books, A Present to the Newborn, which was also released as A Primer for Positive Parenting with the same words inside, Parenting Without Punishment, which came out in late 2013, and her thrid book, Peace, just released at the end of 2015. Her concept of "PARENTOGETHER", which is defined as the parent and child working together instead of on opposite sides, is widely embraced.
