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?

Hi Everyone,

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.

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…

6 Lessons All Fathers
Should Learn

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.
