Sixteen years ago becoming a nanny and a coach was how I began sharing my parenting style with other parents while doing what I loved. It was the best decision I've ever made for many reasons and it has also enabled me to see all the challenges most families are facing today.
I soon realised that struggling families were experiencing the same issues only in differing degrees. This realisation allowed me to create a simple parenting model to help families get more joy from parenting, their relationship and in turn from friendships, work and life in general. If there's one thing I know it's that once home life is sorted and more importantly enjoyable, everything else just becomes easier.
Some parents call my way with children "Mary Poppins" or "Shazzie Magic" and sometimes I even feel that there is a kind of magic involved because of how quickly the children ‘get it’ and improve their behaviour. I especially love watching mums and dads get their 'aha' moment when they try out their new skills.
My passion is to support parents and children in finding out how to really enjoy this very precious time in their lives. I want this for you too, because parenting is too important to get it wrong. Acquiring some skills to make the most momentous job you will ever have, easier and more enjoyable is a smart decision for all parents.
I have many programs, workshops, videos and free tips for you to begin getting yourself ready to start. Children who are raised to be conscious, who've learnt patience and respect don’t resort to all the unnecessary out of control nonsense that is viewed as normal these days.
The benefits of having self aware children are ongoing, resulting in you and the whole family having more of life’s great things such as love and affection, connection, respect and time for yourself.
Remember that every day you are creating childhood memories that your children can draw on for life, make them the ones you’ll feel good about!
