Never has there been a more important time than now to address the growing problems of disconnection, aggression, oppression of children and child abuse, and the increasing numbers of children with psychiatric diagnoses and behaviour/developmental “problems” and “disorders”. More and more children are experiencing depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicide, domestic violence, violence to each other and to our planet. Our world desperately needs emotionally healthy children to become strong resilient adults who can bring urgent change for the world and build peace and health for future generations.
I believe that it is crucial to provide parents with the support, knowledge and tools, based on strong scientific research, to raise children who are psychologically well, who are connected to their authentic selves, loving, and cooperative, whilst also supporting parents to become unstressed and unhurt themselves. If we want competent, compassionate, non-violent children, they need to be parented with love, trust and respect and they need our support to heal from stress and trauma.
