Kids in the House is the largest parenting video library in the world. This educational website aims to help parents and caregivers become better at parenting by educating, inspiring and entertaining. This resource contains over 9,000 videos from 500 leading parenting experts, including doctors, pediatricians, psychologists, educators, best-selling authors, celebrities, and parents themselves.
Kids in the House gives parents and educators the chance to get answers to their tough questions and get first-hand tips on how to deal with particular challenges ranging from pregnancy to getting into college. The website is also customizable, allowing users to create playlists of their favorite videos and interact with other users and parents who may have dealt with similar issues. Kids in the House understands that there is a variety of parenting techniques and that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to raising a family.
Leana Greene, CEO and founder of Kids in the House, began the company after becoming a parent herself. She was looking for a comprehensive resource that consolidated all of the information she learned from going to lectures, reading books, and speaking to other parents. As a mother of three, Leana discovered that she, like many other parents, faced a lack of time. Her dream of creating a quick and easy-to-use resource full of quality advice for parents formed, and she was eager to make it happen. Leana spent years interviewing experts, doing research, and producing videos encompassing all parenting styles, all age groups, and both traditional and non-traditional parenting topics. Leana made her dream a reality when she launched Kids in the House in 2013, and now the award-winning website is considered the ultimate parenting resource.
Leana Greene is the founder and CEO of Kids in the House. Raised in Stockholm, Sweden and later immigrating to the United States, Greene has successfully started several businesses. In her early 20s she founded Absolute Court Reporting, which she built to be the premier court reporting company in Southern California and eventually sold to Paulson Court Reporting in 2003. In 2005, Greene started her own record company, Swedish Diva Productions, and pursued her natural music talent by producing and recording an original album, Faith in Myself. The album landed on international music charts, including five Top 10 Billboard Dance hits, amongst others.
After becoming a mother of three, Greene decided to focus on raising her family and developed a strong passion for parenting and education. She spent her time reading parenting books and attending lectures to gain as much knowledge as possible. Realizing that many parents were busy like her, Greene strove to create a comprehensive resource that was quick and easy to use. In 2013, after spending years doing research and filming over 450 parenting experts, Greene launched Kids in the House. With over 8,000 videos, the website is now the world’s largest parenting video library. It also serves as a tool to raise awareness on issues like bullying through social campaigns such as #EndBullying, which launched in 2014 and was publically supported by figures such as Beyoncé, Jeff Probst, and Brook Burke-Charvet.
Greene serves on the honorary host committee for the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media Symposium. She is a strong supporter of Healthy Child Healthy World, Common Sense Media, and Brentwood School, where she serves on both the Parent University and the Education & Community Committee. She is an active volunteer at her children’s schools, and her greatest love is spending time with her family, including her husband, Browne Greene, and their children Violet, Blue, and Teal. “Together,” she says, “we’re the Rainbow Family!”
