Aware Partnering in Parenthood Course

Guiding your way to the same page in parenting
Conflict and struggles between parents are part of almost every consultation I offer to parents. Whatever the unique circumstances of your family, it is inevitable that there will be times of disagreement and disaccord. This course will give you tools to use in your families to bring you more harmony and connection, in your relationship with your partner as well as your relationships with your children. It supports you to navigate the stresses of parenting, whether you are together with the other parent of your children, separated from them or in a blended family. The course is designed to be completed alone by yourself or together with your partner or shared with your co-parent.

This course will guide you to the same page in parenting with your partner/co-parent and support you to bring the principles and theory of the Aware Parenting framework to your relationships. This course looks at how we can use the core components of compassion and connection that lie under all of the Aware Parenting approach, to shape our relationships.

The course is a self-paced set of 9 modules, containing videos and prompts for reflections, resources and meditations. It is all based on the principles of Aware Parenting developed by Aletha Solter Ph.D. a developmental psychologist and internationally renowned expert on attachment, trauma and non-punitive discipline.

Aware Parenting is a way of parenting consciously and offering presence and empathy to our children. This framework can then shape all the relationships in our families and guides us in navigating the challenges of modern family life.

Aware Parenting also supports parents to release and heal the painful feelings we still carry, to explore our core beliefs and to meet our own needs. We are then more able to be the parent we want to be and have beautiful loving connections with our children and respectful and connected relationships with our partner/co-parent.

I would love to ask you...

Do you find yourself arguing with your partner or co-parent about parenting?

Do you have very different approaches to raising children or just overwhelmed at times in parenting and seeing this affecting your relationship with the other parent of your child/ren?

Are you often fighting about how to respond to the children, how to manage their behaviour and how to offer discipline?

Are you wanting to raise your children with conscious connection and awareness and wondering how to bring your partner or co-parent on board?

Or are you separated from the other parent of your child/ren and wanting ways to navigate the complexities of family life in healthy and connected ways?

Are you part of a step or blended family and wanting to create a functional and connected family to ride the often complicated emotions and dynamics that can arise for everyone?

Or are you a single parent in a relationship with a new partner who is not the parent of your child and you are wanting to find ways to parent and co-parent with them?
Whatever your individual circumstances of your family, if you are wanting more connected and compassionate relationships in your family, this course is for you!
