Parent Club/Scholarship Price

Banish meltdowns and drama

LEARN A CUTTING-EDGE, PROGRESSIVE APPROACH TO PARENTING and get them to stop doing THAT THING so you can actually enjoy family life!

Surely Fatherhood Shouldn't Be This Hard?

Bedtime just took 4 hours again and you’re still not convinced they’re asleep. Perhaps your child won’t eat anything but white starch. Or you have a preteen who’s getting lost in video games and snapchat.

And why is it that your cherub behaves beautifully at school and transforms into a monster at home? You are the one facing tooth-brushing meltdowns, babysitter biting, visitations from the night banshee, sibling spitathons…

Secretly, you wish you could just stay at work rather than face another weekend with your kids.

Months in and out of lockdown has done nothing to lighten the load – if anything, issues that were lurking in the background have come out into the spotlight.

Whatever specific challenges you’re facing in your parenting, you are tired of it feeling so hard, worried how your kids are going to turn out if this carries on and you’re ready for someone – ANYONE – to lighten your load

Signs You Need This
– You’re exhausted/burned out
– You find yourself shouting more than you want
– You find it hard to set boundaries then are suddenly too strict
– Giving in and placating instead of dealing with the problem issue
– Avoiding playing/spending time with kids or not enjoying the time you do spend
– Numbing out/distracting with work, alcohol, internet
– Feeling helpless in the face of your child’s behaviour or struggle

How do you Wish Being a Dad Could Be?

It’s the simple things that make the biggest difference – like the fact that you get enough sleep. Or that you and your co-parent aren’t endlessly arguing about how to parent.

You even have energy left at the end of the day for the things you love. Or to just enjoy being a family. Who knew?!

Imagine knowing that you can leave the house without someone crying. Or your kids brush their hair or do their homework without you even asking.

Better still, you have actual strategies in your back pocket for your kid’s trickiest behaviour. And they work!
