  • "The table of contents in Treion Muller’s Reality Parenting may look like a joke set list at a comedy club, but even though he uses humor to communicate his message, the “reality” is he deals with serious issues that he backs up with facts, experiences, solutions, and an opportunity for self examination.  It’s a fun read but there’s never TMI when it comes to the real work of parenting exposed inside his latest book." - Bruce R.

About The Author

Treion Muller Parenting Author

I am a proud South-African American with Irish-German heritage, with a made-up French name, who once managed an Italian restaurant. (It doesn’t get any more diverse than that). I was born and raised in South Africa during the apartheid and Nelson Mandela era, so I genuinely bring a distinct perspective and passion to life. I am an author, blended learning authority, social learning expert, and eLearning thought leader. (Hey, if I don’t toot my own horn, no one else will. But I promise I am not an arrogant “know-it-all.”) Currently, I am FranklinCovey’s Director of Development for Online Learning and Digital Solutions, responsible for all online-learning development initiatives and strategies. I have been with FranklinCovey for nine years, in which time I have helped develop and launch several successful products. In my professional career I have had titles such as, Chief eLearning Architect, Instructional Designer, Corporate Trainer, Professional Speaker, College Recruiter, Insurance Salesman, Pharmaceutical Representative, Gopher and Peon. I have a Masters degree in Instructional Design from Utah State University, and I am the co-author of, "The Learning Explosion: 9 Rules to Ignite Your Virtual Classrooms" and "The Webinar Manifesto." In addition to my business books I have also authored "Dad Rules: A Simple Manual For a Complex Job," "Mom Rules: Even Superheroes Need Help Sometimes," and "Reality Parenting: As NOT Seen on TV." I also draw inspiration from my past experiences as a professional dancer, medic in the South African Army, missionary, University Student Body President, university mascot (The Thunderbird), and caricaturist. Yes, my talents are many. I have lived in Utah for the past eighteen years, where I spend most of my “offline” time with my extremely talented wife and my five, almost perfect, children.
