Roma Khetarpal is the founder and CEO of Tools of Growth, through which she helps parents raise kids to “Be Happy, Think Positive, and Do Good.” With parenting classes, community outreach, articles, reviews, and blog posts, Tools of Growth provides parents with simple, easy-to-remember, and effective communication tools that can help them build a strong foundation and relationship with their children. By synthesizing the themes and concepts of the personal growth and emotional intelligence fields, along with cutting-edge parenting research, Khetarpal delivers her message in an accessible, reassuring, and personally empowering way.
She is also the author of the “The ‘Perfect’ Parent: 5 Tools for Using Your Inner Perfection to Connect With Your Kids.” In “The ‘Perfect’ Parent,” Khetarpal writes that it’s the dynamic between parents and children that makes the difference. She writes that parents can draw on their inner resources — what she calls inner perfection — to enhance the way they connect with their children, building trust and thereby making it second nature for children to reach out to their parents, strengthening that bond for life.
Her book has been endorsed and recommended by clinical psychologist, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, featured on Oprah’s lifeclass, Asha Dornfest, founder of ParentHacks.com and Dr. Christine Carter, parent educator.
She is also an Executive Board Member of the Philanthropic Society Los Angeles, which raises funds for Children’s Institute, Inc. Khetarpal is working on a line of children’s products that will promote self-understanding and emotional intelligence.
Khetarpal also serves on the board of directors at AM-Touch Dental, where she was vice president of sales and marketing for twenty years before founding Tools of Growth, and where she currently teaches quarterly human resource classes. She lives in the Los Angeles area with her husband, Harry. They are the proud parents of two adult children, Nitasha and Navin. Khetarpal enjoys reading, swimming, dancing, cooking, traveling, sunsets and sunrises, oceans, and nature.
