Learning To Be An Inspirational Parent
Learning the types of parenting style
that works for you, is not always easy, many parents simply do what their parents did.
But a lot of parents find that doesn't seem to work, life is very different today, and they want more for their kids. They want a deeper, richer experience of parenting.
Many parents are wanting to raise their kids consciously, instead of parenting on auto pilot.
Learning to change your own thinking is hard enough, but then how to apply that to raising kids?

As a parent coach I get lots of questions from families needing parenting tips or advice to help them choose more consciously how you want to raise your children.
Most of us need a bit of a helping hand from time to time, we all need support, inspiration, and sometimes a bit of a challenge to really create the happy home life that we want.
We love to interact with you, many of you will have some wonderful tips you can share and some great parenting advice you have learned along the way.
With your help, we also review educational toys and books, and give recommendations to show you how to make the best choices for your children.
