Christie Clarke

Family Communication Specialist, Love & Logic® facilitator for nearly a decade.
“Solutions for Daily Living with Children” - available for classrooms, homes, scout troops, churches, synagogues, daycare centers - anywhere there are children. As the founder of Out-A-Box Parenting, Inc., CHRISTIE CLARKE speaks to large and small groups of parents, teachers, administrators, and business owners in Chicagoland and beyond. As a speaker, Christie enlightens, educates, entertains, and empowers anyone who’s willing to LISTEN. As an author, parenting coach, mother of 4 and grandmother of 6, she brings patience, a wealth of experience, and a sense of humor to all her work. As a certified classroom teacher with experience in 5 states, Christie’s work in preschools, detention centers, alternative and college prep high schools makes her successful at training educators. As a parent coach who travels to individual homes, Christie has been dubbed “The Nanny of Elgin,” working with individuals to help bring peace to households and quality to relationships. Her extensive training and personal experience mixes with her positive and often humorous views of parenting and teaching to make her classes informative, practical, and fun.


We all share universally applicable and simple tools which put the fun back in communication and the joy back in living! In meeting after meeting and workshop after workshop, we’ve found that the concepts we share apply to all human beings – not just parents!
