B.I.G. - Hoffman Estates Presents


with Christie Clarke of Out-A-Box Parenting



The Director of Out-A-Box Parenting, Christie Clarke, is a presenter, trainer, certified teacher, consultant, Love & Logic ® facilitator, mother of 4 and grandmother of 7.  

Her history of providing workshops for parents and teachers, along with her individualized parent coaching has earned her the title "The Nanny of Elgin.”  She’s been featured as such in The Daily Herald, on radio shows, and in speaking venues throughout Chicagoland and beyond.    

Christie has worked with staff at Streamwood Behavioral Health Center, Boys & Girls Clubs, Sherman Hospital, and numerous schools…as well as speaking to countless parent groups, libraries, churches, women’s organizations, and non-profits.    

Brilliantly simple communication tools help create stronger and healthier relationships.  These reduce stress and support happier, more productive organizations, families, and classrooms.    

Specializing in imparting profound strategies which empower and inspire, Christie will help you laugh your way to a whole new level of communication skills! 


There may be nothing "basic” about communication any more  -  what with all the technological advances.  But there ARE ways we can speak so we can be listened to…and even heard!  Wouldn’t it be great to defuse arguments and ask questions rather than issuing challenges? The "APPlication” of profoundly simply, yet amazingly effective tools allow for a comfortable, respectful dialogue between parents and children, employers and employees, moms and teachers,  spouses, neighbors, in-laws…even off-shore web service support providers!  


Together we’ll explore the impact of Breath, Brains, and Behavior on our everyday communication challenges.  Life is too short to spend it stressing rather than smiling.


Believe, Inspire, Grow (B.I.G), is a women’s support, education and networking organization that embraces women’s desire to connect with each other. We strive to facilitate safe and supportive environments to further our members' personal and professional dreams and goals. Learn more at
