"Amazing!! I was hanging on every word at the workshop. I found the concepts that Genevieve was explaining to be both amazing and so obvious and simple at the same time. I think every parent needs the opportunity to learn peaceful parenting techniques. The effects in my family have been incredible. Every time I feel like getting annoyed at my kids, I remember Genevieve's words and it helps me remember that they need my warmth and guidance, not my anger. I'm loving this new way of listening to my children and how it consistently brings out the best in them and empowers them to find creative solutions to their problems." Sandra, Auckland, NZ
For most parents, they just don't get enough emotional support along the way and yet can often feel like they're expected to perform at their best at all times despite their frustrations, restrictions, hurts and confusion. The approaches that we put forward on this site and through our courses, phone coaching and other resources are for parents who want to heal themselves, heal their child and heal their family. It's for parents who are looking deeper and further than just clever techniques to get their child to comply. It's for parents who want the systems in their family to be based on genuine respect and understanding from each member towards each other member of the family. If you're on the road to learning more about parenting, gaining new perspectives, learning good quality parenting tips and exploring attachment parenting, you've come to the right place. If you're interested in learning or developing parenting techniques that are based on positive communication skills, respect for your child's feelings and boundaries and generally parenting approaches that foster peace, trust, harmony and mutual co-operation in your family, again, you've come to the right place.

"When I was at the seminar, I have to admit that I was doubtful that these techniques could bring positive results with my five year old son, but I'm constantly amazed at how quickly he calms down and actually starts to listen to me when he can see that I'm really listening to him and I can see how much more confident he becomes when he sees that I'm really there to help him and support him. I've seen him as such a little fighter, but now I can see that he's just been trying to show me that he needs to see and feel my support and belief in him." Annie, Whangarei, NZ.
