Creating Your Family Values

In our busy lives, it’s so easy to get on with things, get out the door in the morning, get the kids off to daycare or school, work furiously, get home, put the dinner on, eat dinner (sometimes before 9pm if you’re lucky or disciplined!), bath kids, put kids to bed then do a bit more work and flop into bed. And start all over again the next day.

Encouraging Your Child to Give Genuine Thanks

I don’t know about you but I get tired of repeating to my children, “say please” “say thank you” And when they do say it, their tone of voice is so perfunctory they may as well have not said it – does that sound familiar?

How to be a calm in challenging situations

We’ve all had parenting situations where one seemingly small thing has turned into something bigger than Ben Hur, creating stress, a foul mood and sometimes saying things we later regret. In this episode, learn how to nip parental stress in the bud so that you can respond to situations in a healthier, more positive way.

Praising Your Child to Promote a Growth Mindset

This episode explains what may be going on and how you can change it….

Our Very First Weekend Retreat

And what a weekend it was. This first retreat set about guiding mums to learn the art of making space in their mind to be able to follow the energy of their children and life in general. The result? More fun! As a family we believe and have proven, that the more you can do this, the more you thrive and because you become the ultimate role model, the more your children thrive. Everybody wins. And 8 more mums are now putting this theory to the test and I cannot wait to hear the results! And because we recognised that a weekend alone is rare and cannot be wasted, we made sure there was some relaxation, cake, giggles and even a takeaway dinner! Take a look at some of the action! Mums enjoying a luxurious Arbonne facial with Sal Wiseman   Ahh…the wet feet! Lunchtime soak anyone?   How did the Mind Retreat benefit mums? Through open and candid discussion in a relaxed and non-judgmental atmosphere, the mums were able to explore their emotions and begin to lay down a foundation for unshakeable self-esteem and self-worth and build a structure by which to communicate confidently. And to be able to leave the Retreat feeling empowered and prepared to approach difficult situations with husband, family, children, work colleagues, by having worked through new and healthy ways to think and feel, they were ready to make lasting changes for the better, a reality. Wow. All from a weekend with hoogi.   Yoga with the gorgeous Lou from Footsteps   And here is what some of the mums had to say afterwards: RW, Working...

Speaking Up For Yourself

I had an interesting experience on a night out last night.

I ordered a cocktail that I later realised had an incorrect ingredient in it. I had drank most of but didn’t enjoy it and then knew why…

In my mind, I was clear – I had ordered and paid for a cocktail. The ingredients were incorrect and therefore it was the bar tenders responsibility to correct it to what was ordered and paid for.

Sounds simple doesn’t it. And yet why is it, often the most simple things like sending an order back, can be the most difficult to do?

A Mother’s Day Poem I have written for you…

A mother has a unique gift
One that is unsurpassed, unrequited and unrepeatable by another.
Your role, your privilege,
Your strengths, your learnings,
Those moments when you rise and fall…
