    So much about Freya Dawson’s book “Joyful Parenting” resonated with me. Some of the information helped to cement understanding that I’d already discovered through other authors and teachers, and some was totally new, and quite challenging and mind blowing!

    I was very grateful to have the opportunity to follow up reading the book with one of Freya’s online Joyful Parenting Courses, where it was wonderful to learn more, and share with other parents, and hear others’ experiences under Freya’s gentle and patient guidance.

    I found Freya’s sharing of her experiences in many ways profound, and yet there was so much practical advice – some has been hard for me to get my head and heart around, and it is taking some time and patience. I actually really appreciate that though – this book and course are not about quick fixes or rules for parenting, but about building relationships. I found Freya’s skills very valuable in helping me to get to know myself and accepting myself where I am, and in getting to know my husband and children, and accepting them where they are.

    Thank you Freya. Your book and course have helped me to challenge myself, be more patient with myself, forgive myself, and care for myself more… You helped me in my journey of realising that I need to connect with myself, in order to be able to connect with my children.

    A little bit of background – Freya Dawson entered my orbit via Facebook. My husband and I had committed to home education for our daughter, after making the commitment the world of home education options opened up. Curriculum, Unschooling, Wildschooling, Aware Parenting, Radical Unschooling and more. I was in a whirl. Our daughter is incredibly Spirited and determined I find parenting her challenging. It can be hell on earth let me tell you. Freya’s Book came at the right time.

    Such an easy read, this book contains no jargon. But my goodness me putting what I read into practice was a challenge. I came to realise that this book is the companion book for all the modes of home education. It doesn’t matter what mode of home education delivery fits best with your family, what you will read in this book will support you.

    I couldn’t believe that caring for a child could be so hard. That there could be so much crying, yelling and upset from the parent and the child. This book will help you see it really doesn’t need to be this way. Not only that it will give you the tools, confidence and information you need to take the brave step of parenting with joy and peace. It IS possible!

    Reading this book gave me permission and showed me
    *I COULD be happy, it could be EASY
    * that my struggles were actually with my own patterns
    * that life with my child could be fun AND rewarding
    *that my daughter and I didn’t need to be at logger heads, this is not a war
    *that the sky was not going to open up and strike me down for parenting joyfully
    * I am ALLOWED to be happy and free with my daughter and myself

    This book is a God send for anyone who needs permission, information and guidance to move beyond struggle and hardship and into a joyful, loving experience with parenting.

    I have passed this copy to my friend and highly recommend Freya’s work.
