Get support for your parenting without leaving home! Join this small ongoing group of parents, for as many, or as few, Calls as you want.
- ask your parenting questions
- share your experiences;
- get company on the journey and know that you are not alone in this important work, and
- reduce your parenting stress by through advice-free listening support.
Learn new skills for building closeness and setting limits to improve your relationship with your children and avoid angry words and impossible power struggles. Using our practical approach, you can help your children back onto the path of reasonableness and co-operation and spend more time enjoying your children and your family.
Parenting can be challenging at the best of times. Sometimes you just need information: “What do I do when my child tries to hit me?” “What is the best way to wean my baby?” “What do I do when my child can't sleep through the night?” and “Why is my pre-teen so angry?”.
Sometimes, you just want some company, to know that there are other fathers and mothers parents out there on the same challenging journey you are on.
And sometimes you just need someone to listen – with care, with understanding, and without offering opinions, criticism or judgement.
