Parent Educator

Over the years I have been an active parent educator, assisting and supporting parents in relating to their children.

I have conducted various parenting courses at Relationship Australia, Schools and Early Childhood centres in Melbourne. These courses were designed to give parents insights on:

  • How to be more in tune and connected with their children
  • How to promote resilience in their children
  • How to expand their range of strategies to attain co-operation and
  • How to discipline children in a respectful way and effective way.
