About the Author

MARLAINE PAULSEN COVER is the founder of the Parenting 2.0 (P20) international consciousness movement. “Replace Occupy with Exemplify and you have the formula for P20.” Cover’s path to social activism began after she yelled at her eldest daughter one morning when she left for school without eating breakfast. Feeling “outmanned” in her efforts to teach her children that non-academic Life Skills were as critical as academics, and knowing true change would only come about when she herself “truly changed,” Cover sat down and created The Life Skills Report Card (LSRC.) In 2009, Cover started the Parenting 2.0 group on LinkedIn to share the concept of the LSRC and support Life Skills Educators. P20’s mission is for children’s “Life Skills Averages to one day be as appreciated as their Grade Point Averages.” Today, P20 is LinkedIn’s top-ranked parenting group, with more than two thousand members in over fifty countries, and plans for launching an international volunteer organization called The Global Presence. With her daughters now attending University of California colleges, Cover resides in southern California with her husband of twenty-seven years, William Hurt Cover, PhD, J.D.
