Many peaceful, aware parents still get stuck in stress and worry about their children.
Do you end up yelling, even though you try really hard not to?
Do you feel that there are problems that you just can't resolve?
One of the big reasons is that the beliefs and habits we learned in our own childhoods are unconsciously shaping our parenting. Left unaddressed, these beliefs and habits can keep us stuck in stress and conflict indefinitely.

Freya Dawson has 15 years of mothering experience and 20 years experience in adult education. She is a gifted communicator, researcher and teacher who has deep spiritual understanding and insight.
"I received a PhD in Law when my eldest son was 2 years old and it didn't improve my parenting skills one little bit! I was a clueless, overwhelmed first-time mother who had very high expectations of myself. The reality was that I struggled every day and felt out of my depth as a parent. I spent a dozen years researching and trying out the advice of many teachers including Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, Thomas Gordon and Marshall Rosenburg.
I have experimented with and adapted their teachings and road-tested everything in my own family. What I discovered was a set of Five Skills that provide a complete tool kit for solving family problems and creating harmonious, intimate relationships with children.
I share this research and my own journey from struggle and worry to connection and peace so that you can take the short-cut."

My children love the game “Kissy Cow” that was born from the time spent playing “their” games for 30min every night (Skill 5:Playtime). When asked by the teacher at school “How does Mummy make you laugh?” They replied “Playing Kissy Cow”
Really enjoyed the topic “Question your thinking” and the turn around, most of “”my” issues melted away when I started using this tool regularly. — Trish
The information and processes are really so very helpful and I can honestly say they have really changed and shifted lots of stuff for us! I often call in Freya’s energy in our family dealings and it has been a great help. — Laury
