Would you like to: 1. Help your children become happy, fulfilled and self-reliant adults; 2. Deal with everyday parenting challenges without confrontation or anger; 3. Maintain a strong and loving connection with your children throughout their lives; 4. Agree on a balanced and more enjoyable approach to parenting? Parenting is an important job, yet parents receive little to no training. Since most of our experience is based on our own upbringing, we can feel uncertain as to whether we are doing the right thing. To complicate things further, our partner is likely to have a different parenting style to ours. Drawing on their experience in early childhood education, as Parenting Coaches, and as parents, Carole and Nadim have helped thousands of parents with their programme of practical tools designed to empower parents by giving them more effective alternatives to nagging, yelling, threatening, punishing or giving in.
