Who decided that parenting support should only be offered between the child’s 0-5yrs?

The teen years are tough – for them and they can be just as tough on us.
Stress at school, attitude, behaviour, putting themselves at risk… the terrible two’s are nothing in comparison!

That’s why we have created this village 

We know that regardless of how much money you have, regardless of your educational background and regardless of which area you live in – there just isn’t enough support available for parents and families whose children are struggling.

Through online and offline networking events, this ‘village’ is for you.

To be part of a supportive, uplifting community of parents who all recognise that parenting children through the adolescent years is challenging for us all.

‘No Judgement – No Blame’

The village encourages the understanding and empowerment for all our members.

The Village is there for us to all learn from one another. We all have golden nuggets of knowledge that can go on to support other families to lead happy ‘connected’ lives.

Most importantly – we inject a healthy dose of fun into our meet-ups – so we look forward to seeing you there soon!
