Here’s what parents said about this course
Is the Parenting Starter Class right for me?
What will I get from taking this class?
You will by the end of the 6 week course have started to build a strong and potentially lifelong support network for parenting. You’ll know how to help your child when their behaviour goes off track and how to prevent them getting to that point so often. You’ll discover how to set effective, respectful limits and know when limits are needed or not. You’ll start to develop your resourcefulness and ability to divert situations playfully. You can rediscover how to play and have fun with your child and feel like a good parent. Overall, you’ll gain confidence in your parenting and a clear idea of how to navigate most situations.
What kind of issues will I be able to work on using the Hand in Hand approach?
This approach can be applied across the board for any ages and will improve difficult/defiant behaviour, sibling relationships, sleep, picky eating, challenges with separation, aggression, conflicts about getting dressed or chores or whatever. It will improve your child’s capacity to take bold steps in the world and also their intelligence.
I’m not sure I have enough parenting challenges to warrant taking a class.
This approach will give you a way of being that enhances every relationship in your life. It’s hard to imagine what more connection, fun and ease can look like before you’ve experienced it. We take for granted that parenting involves struggle and that we need to do it by ourselves and yet here is a way to make life easier, more connected, more supported, more joyful and PLAYFUL!
I can’t afford the fee!
Do get in touch with me if you are worried about affording it. I can accept payment in installments and sometimes have offers. The course includes materials and you will get to keep the manual and booklets. You can share the online course with your spouse and you’ll have that content for 6 months. This is a really good value course.
I’m struggling to find time to fit this in
We all juggle so much and it’s hard to carve out extra child free time. You’ll know whether it’s the right time for you, but you can consider this course as a source of support that fills you up so that you can approach the rest of the week from a stronger foundation. It can certainly be classed as self care and the time you save by eliminating conflict and struggles will open up a new sense of spaciousness in your life.
