Do You Want to Learn Parenting Skills from Someone That Has Actually Had Some Really Difficult Times and Come Out of Them With Great Kids and Relationships?
Years of parenting experience, some tough times and three kids have taught me what it takes to be a successful parent. I have translated my experiences into a conscious parenting mastery program for you that is made up of a series of videos and activity sheets that will show you in a conversational way how to change the results you are currently producing with your family by using a practical, common sense approach to parenting.
Parenting should be a fulfilling, enjoyable time and if it is not that for you then I would encourage you to explore this site and look at the mastery program.
Do you want to be able to:
- Imagine understanding why your kids are misbehaving and what they are trying to achieve.
- Imagine being able to track your own behaviour and identify trends and triggers that are currently affecting your behaviour as a parent.
- Imagine having the control to change your behaviour to affect change in your child.
- Imagine being able to plan for parenting issues before they even happen.
- Imagine understanding how to create choices and consequences for your child and having them accepting responsibility for their decisions
All of these things are possible for you and they will allow you to parent calmly without any stress or anxiety so that you produce strong relationships and a happy family.
Is Your Toddler Driving You Crazy?
Do you have a toddler and they are driving you crazy with their tantrums, screaming and yelling, toys being left out?
Do you shop only when it is really necessary or have stopped having a coffee with your friends because you just don't know how your toddler will behave?
If any of this resembles your life as a parent then you need a step-by-step method to show you how to communicate calmly and clearly to your toddler so you don't feel stressed and the home is once again a happy place to be.
When you can confidently call your friends for a coffee at the local cafe and not worry about your toddler.
When you can invite friends over to your house and know that your toddler will behave so you can enjoy time with your friends.
When you can go shopping, get some new clothes or simply visit the supermarket without your toddler throwing a tantrum.
When you can finally take some quiet time for yourself during the day.
It is all possible and within your reach.
What Happened to My Beautiful Child?
Did you have a beautiful toddler that has now progressed in those tween years and it seems like they are a totally person to the one you loved spending time with?
Are beginning to argue with you over what seems to be everything?
Are they beginning to assert their independence?
Do you feel like they are not as close to you as they once were? And that they now prefer their friends.
This can be a really testing time for you as a parent and it can challenge your feelings of self-worth as a parent. It does not have to be this way for you.
Imagine if you....
Could calmly deal with any situation that arises with your tween so that you can continue to maintain that close, loving relationship that you had when they were younger.
Understood how to allow them enough independence so that they felt like they were growing, but not enough that you lose control as a parent.
Can maintain your feeling of self-worth as a parent and actually embrace the new relationships that your tween is starting to develop with their friends.
Don't wait till it is too late to start.
You Don't Know What To Do or Say To Your Teenager?
Do you have teen that will not listen, is disrespectful, answers back or will not take no for an answer?
Do you need to constantly be asking them to do their chores or their homework?
Are you unhappy with the friends that they have around them?
You are not alone, but you do need a plan and a set of guidelines that you parent from so that you remain calm in any situation and start to affect your teenager's behaviour.
You see it is not their behaviour that you need to focus on, but instead understanding why they are behaving in this manner, what is their motivation and what are they trying to achieve. Once you have this knowledge then you can begin to work with your teenager instead of against them.
Imagine if you could.....
Once again enjoy the company of your teenager.
Spend time with each other or as a family without the fights and attitude.
Enjoy life and get a good nights sleep without wondering what was going to happen next.
I want this to be your reality.
The Conscious Parenting Program is just what I needed. My life was becoming very busy and I wasn't enjoying parenting as much as I used to......It felt like John was actually talking about my children as the examples related really well to what I was having difficulty with. I found immediate changes in my children's behaviour when I started implementing the strategies discussed in the program...Linda Marxsen
6 Lessons All Fathers
Date: 31/7/2014 By: John Edwards
Like many people in the world my upbringing was far from perfect with an alcoholic father and a traumatised but loving mother raising me. It could be assumed that after such a turbulent childhood I would have been a great father, but this was unfortunately not the case.
My own parenting spiralled out of control when I lost my temper and nearly hit my own child. At that point I knew that it was time for me to become the parent that my children deserved me to be.
My father is of the old school “Do as I say” and “kids should be seen and not heard” mentality which was only made worse by his drinking problem – this was the only parenting style I knew.
At 23 I married Sally 21 and we had our first child. At that time I could not even hold a drink in my hand because I shook so much from my upbringing. We soon had two more kids.
I struggled with my demons from my childhood and struggled as a parent. I would yell, smack and lose my temper over silly things that my children said or did.
The Secrets to Stopping Shopping Tantrums
Date: 18/7/2014 By: John Edwards
How often have you taken your toddler by yourself to the shopping centre and it has become a nightmare?
It is a situation that mums frequently find themselves in and it is not pleasant to deal with. Not only are under pressure as a mum, but you now have other customers staring at your child and you believe they are silently judging your parenting abilities.
How can you change this situation?
Quite often very simple measures can be taken, but it does require you to be a conscious parent. A conscious parent is one that considers parenting situations in advance and determines the best course of action. You do not want to be dealing with a screaming child in the supermarket if you have not previously developed some strategies.
Why is your child behaving in this manner?
Most often toddlers will cry, scream or generally act inappropriately at places like the supermarket so that they can gain your attention. You are shopping and not focussing on them and as toddlers they have not developed the intellectual ability to tell you of their concern and so they take the only course of action they know that will produce results.
3 Keys to Conscious Parenting
Date: 29/7/2014 By: John Edwards
Not all of us are lucky enough to have positive life experiences and parenting does not come with a manual. We make it up as we go along.
My passion is now to provide practical steps for parents to follow so they can become conscious parents who react in a calm, considered manner, which reduces stress and allows them to have a fun, rewarding and fulfilling time as a parent.
The origins of conscious parenting
It is difficult to determine who actually coined the phrase ‘conscious parenting’, but it has certainly grown with our current focus on consciousness, whether that be in relation to parenting, relationships, business, animals or the environment.
Conscious parenting appears to have been influenced by Alderian psychology, which posits that the success of families rests primarily on mutual respect.
Alder noted the importance of our perceptions and social relationships to our own emotional and physical health and to that of our families. He placed great emphasis on nurturing our innate ability to co-operate with each other and to encourage others and ourselves.
How to Maintain a Strong Relationship While Being Parents
Date: 22/7/2014 By: John Edwards
As a parent it is often the case that you forget about who you were and replace it with your role as a provider, parent and partner. It is really important that when you have kids and are in a relationship that you take time out for yourself.
It is also equally important that as a partner in a relationship that you do not forget that you most likely came together before your kids and that there was a connection between you both that should remain in front of everything else.
All to often we forget that we are people in a relationship and begin to think of ourselves as only ‘mum’ or ‘dad’. This change in our perception can be dangerous and lead to difficulties in your relationship and that usually translates into difficulties with your kids.
I love this course. It's practical and even as I was listening, before writing anything down I could identify specific things I could improve in my parenting and the way I approach teaching my kids to do the right thing.Sally Bettenay, Mother of Two
