The Courses:

- “Listening to Children” e-booklet set including; How Children’s Emotions Work, Special Time, Reaching for your Angry Child, Crying, Healing Children’s Fears, Tantrums and Indignation, Playlistening, Setting Limits and Listening Partnerships for Parents. (AUD $27 value)

HOW DO THESE COURSES WORK? You can start anytime. Once you have registered and paid, you will be sent an email inviting you to join the online classroom. Once you have logged in there, you can start immediately. All you need is high speed internet access. You can expect that it will take you between 3-6 weeks to complete the course, but you can take as long as you need.

WHO IS THIS FOR: Mothers, fathers and carers of children aged 1-10 (although the Listening Tools we teach will work well with children from birth through to adulthood)


We strengthen the parent-child relationship. We offer tools to

- build closeness and emotional safety into your relationship with your children;
- respond effectively to your child’s, and your own, emotional moments;
- set firm, warm limits for children; and
- get the support you need for the complex, and emotional, work of parenting.

These four elements are essential in addressing challenges in your parenting.

Unlike parenting methods that rely on systems of rewards and punishment, this approach focuses on strengthening your connection with your child and is centred on children's strong, innate desire to love and be loved. This fresh and effective framework is consistent with the latest research and results in long-term family success.

SETTING LIMITS AND BUILDING CO-OPERATION: Learn valuable new skills for building co-operation and solving problems in your family. Get a step by step process for making limit setting a positive experience and getting more good times in your family life. Learn why children test limits, how to build and repair connection with them so you can solve problems, and how to defuse power struggles and deal your own frustrations and exhaustion.

TAMING SIBLING RIVALRY: Get fresh perspectives about family dynamics and new ways to creatively respond to difficult moments and chronic difficulties between your children. In the long run, these will dissolve tensions between siblings, reduce your stress levels and build closeness, co-operation, respect and understanding. This is not the typical approach like: "Don't do that or I'll send you to your room". We explain why rewards, punishments and consequences often don’t work that well, and how to focus instead on building your relationship and connection with your children. Children need this connection to be able to function well, learn and get along. Our approach can be challenging to use, but the results over time are deeply rewarding.

HELPING CHILDREN WITH AGGRESSION: Learn concrete, effective tools for stopping your child’s aggressive behaviour and strengthen their connection with you. Understand what drives aggressive behaviour, and learn ways of responding which will build your relationship with your child, and deal with underlying causes. Get a step by step process for proactively dealing with problems before the punch lands, and cleaning up the mess when you get there too late.

HELPING CHILDREN SLEEP: Parenting by Connection offers effective and supportive ways to “put sleep issues to bed” and resolve the emotional tensions which make bedtime difficult and wake children at night. Children experience sleep as separation, and to help them, you will need to build and repair a strong sense of connection with you. Children need your help to get through the difficult emotions which wake them at night, and you will need ways to set loving, firm limits to resolve sleep issues. You will get new understandings of your child’s sleep anxieties, and get 5 concrete “parent-tested” steps you can take to achieve a relaxed sleep for everyone.


Discover the roots of your child’s anxiety and develop confidence in addressing their difficulties around transitions – tantrums, aggression or crying. Learn concrete tools to loosen the hold of anxiety on your child, stop the behaviour, and strengthen their relationship with you. Leaving your child for short times shouldn’t be that hard, and this gives you concrete ways to tackle the feelings that come up – building your child’s confidence and your
