About this event

From Furious to Fabulous! Let's get REAL about what Powerful Parenting can achieve.

Sundays 12th & 19th September 2021, 9am to 4:30pm

A 2-Sunday exploration into new, powerful ways of being as parents. Take some time out from the day to day difficulties, your wild weeks, to discover delights and shortcuts, valuable insights and a range of powerful parenting strategies.

We know there’s more. We’re aware that every experience our children are having is shaping their future selves; how they’ll think, feel & behave throughout the rest of their lives.

We’re tired of not being the sort of parent we long to be. Why is it so hard? What do we not know that could make a huge difference to our enjoyment of parenting and how our children turn out?

We’ll learn about the concept of "unnecessary traumas" : how they can be avoided for our children AND how many of our own childhood traumas (both large and small) are part of what is making it so difficult to parent joyfully and effectively as adults; to be the parent we long to be now.

Sharing, playing, listening, laughing, reflecting - together we will journey into a new paradigm for parenting: where parenting is exciting and enjoyable; where children are competent and deeply themselves; where we get to heal from our own less than ideal childhood experiences and emerge smiling and free. Free to be the parents our children need.

There is a mountain of magic waiting for us all. I’ve been there. Take my hand. Let’s explore this treasure trove of new ideas together.

Limited spaces available.

Your 2-day retreat will leave you confident of:

⁃ 15 things to avoid saying to children AND the powerful replacements of these

⁃ How to be a Powerful Parent, including being more patient and tuned in; authentic - the parent you really want to be

⁃ The real differences between needs and wants and how to manage these

⁃ Why being assertive is critical and how to do this

⁃ When to back off, when to be there, when to "be with"

⁃ What to do when children have huge emotions (and how to not damage them or us in the process)

⁃ Hints for creating fun families and moving from fraught to fantastic

⁃ Why we need to stop creating these unnecessary traumas in our children’s lives (and how to do so)

⁃ More, depending on the unique needs of the group!

Get REAL about parenting:

Many popular parenting practices are based on outdated beliefs and are often persisting mainly to meet the needs of adults, rather than the children. We will unpack these using the latest neuroscience, and our authentic, deep intuition to figure out what our children really need from us.

You will leave knowing strategies you can put into practice immediately in your home.

You will also create your Powerful Parenting Pathway: you, other parents and me, Sarah, your Powerful Parenting Partner.

Join us for these 2 days of magic.

Who is this for?

Parents of children of all ages. Parents who want more.

NB: Our neurobiology works similarly throughout our lives, it’s only the examples that change over time. All human beings have the same basic needs - the greatest being the need to be seen, the need to connect and the need to be authentic. No matter what ages your children are, this retreat series is for you.

Morning and afternoon teas provided. Buy/bring your own lunch. Easy access to public transport and some free Sunday parking. Carpooling options available - get in touch.
