I recently sat down with one of our founders here at Cadey and asked her about her favorite parenting TikTok accounts. It seems like everyone is sharing their parenting advice online.
As you can probably tell for yourself, some of it is excellent advice, and others are a little bit of an eyebrow-raiser. In this blog, you will find some of our favorite TikTok parenting accounts.

#2 Eli Harwood
Eli Harwood is a family therapist and mom of three who talks about secure attachment and raising children mindfully and respectfully.
She is quirky and silly at times, with consistent messaging around parenting that is accessible to all.
TW Sexual Trauma Prevention We can greatly reduce the number of sexual assaults and traumatic sexual encounters in the world as parents by taking the time to teach and review enthusiastic consent. The messages that surround sexuality (especially for boys and men) are confusing. Movies and films often depict women saying no, but meaning yes….but in the real world it is far more common for someone to say yes, but mean no. It happens because the person asking might be significantly larger than the person being asked. Or the person asking isn’t really asking, they are following protocol to look like they are getting consent, but they wouldn’t take no for an answer anyway so the person being “asked” says yes to avoid ongoing badgering and coercion and potential increased aggression. Our teens need to know these things… 1. All physical affection needs consent. 2. All consent needs to either be enthusiastic or emphatic. 3. Every new form of affection needs new enthusiastic consent. (i.e. they said yes to hand holding does not mean they said yes to kissing) 4. Every new encounter needs new consent. Just because you kissed yesterday doesn’t mean you kiss today. 5. No is not rejection of you, it’s a boundary. Respect it and never push. 6. Affection is fun when everyone feels safe. It’s like driving a car, consent is the safety belt you always put on to protect everyone in case there is a quick stop. Thank you to all the parents out there doing this work to cultivate a healthier next generation.

#6 Mayim Bialik

📚 TikTok launched an August #BookTok Reading Challenge! I’m taking part today by sharing a book that I love and feel is underrated: ‘The Body Keeps the Score’ by Bessel van der Kolk! 📖💫 I highly recommend this book! #BookTokChallenge @TikTok
#7 Kim Kizito
Kim Kizito, MEd, is an IEP advocate and former teacher who loves Dr. Russell Barkley’s work as much as we do.
She educates parents about the IEP process and tells them what they can expect from the school in the IEP process.
The DRAMATIC increase in kids who are found eligible under SLD is a huge red flag that many schools end up on a “waiting to fail” model. You know something is up but the school won’t do anything until the kid is finally failing. #theiepstrategist #iepmeetings #specialeducationalneeds #dyslexia #failingschool #readingproblems

#9 Dr. Abbie Jones
Dr. Abbie Jones is a psychologist and expert on executive functioning. She takes a scientific approach to explaining your child’s behaviors and actions.
She posts long videos with lots of brain-based research.
The polyvagal theory explains how our body influences our emotional and social behaviors through systems: the ventral vagal (representing social engagement and safety), the sympathetic (representing fight or flight responses), and the dorsal vagal (representing shutdown or freeze reactions). These systems determine our reactions to #stress and our ability to #connect with others.
