Let's Face It - It's Not Always Rainbows & Butterflies Being A Mum
In fact, it's probably often the opposite of how you thought it would be when you first held your child as a newborn (remember that?!!).
I'm sure you've had times when you feel overwhelmed with rage or frustration.
When you feel hopeless at trying to be the parent you want to be.
When you're shocked by your actions and what's just come out of your mouth (& you end up sounding just like your mum!)
Parenting can be amazing & rewarding, but it can also be difficult & emotionally draining.
Which leads you to shout or become harsh. Which, as we all know, isn't ideal!
If any of this sounds even vaguely like you - you're in such good company!
"We joined the course as at times, my husband and I are struggling with our 6-year old strong will child. I enjoyed the course from the very first day. It's well structured, tackles one issue at a time, examples are plenty and some are from Helena's real life which makes the course seem like a friendly chat among friends with the same parenting problems. It also made me feel I'm not alone in the universe and there is a way to overcame struggles.
I highly recommend this course to anyone who struggles and wants to learn a way to deal with issues without punishment. You will get help and it's easy to follow. And bonus for us, it was a course that both my husband and I could follow in the same time, and practice together. We do feel like less annoying and more amazing parents." Ina (mum to 6 year old girl)

What We'll Cover Together
Week 1 - Pioneering Parenting
This is the week the transformations begin! You'll learn the fundamentals to this approach and understand why traditional discipline methods are ultimately ineffective & unhelpful. You'll find out more about the brain & can start implementing one of the most effective strategies straight away.
Week 2 - Playful Discipline
This is the fun week! Play is AMAZING and you'll really see why. Understand the principles behind using play as a discipline tool and discover a ton of easy, fun games you can immediately play with your kids. And then see the results & have fun!
Week 3 - Encouraging Emotions
Tears & tantrums. Not fun exactly, but necessary and beneficial. You'll find out why AND how to actually be with your child when they're having a massive cry or tantrum. Chances are it'll be different to how your parents treated you, so it's really helpful to see this in action - as you'll see me being with my own children.
Week 4 - Supporting Ourselves
I know you know about the oxygen-mask analogy, but how often do you implement it into your day to day life? We can't be the parents we want to be if were not looking after ourselves & receiving support. This week it's all about YOU & I'll introduce you to a revolutionary strategy to really help you navigate the highs & lows of being a mum.
Week 5 - Nurturing No's
Learn how to bring limits & say "No" lovingly & effectively - without shouting or 'being mean'. Staying connected with your child during challenging times brings the greatest transformations of all.
You'll see how this works in real life with videos of me being with my son, plus I role play with another mum who's a very convincing angry child!
Week 6 - Aggressive Behaviour
The first of 3 Implementation Weeks. Now you get to focus on particular 'projects' with your children in areas that need the most attention. This week it's all about aggression - one of the most challenging behaviours with our young children.
Week 7 - Sleep, Home & Family
This implementation week is all about focusing on bedtimes & sleep, sibling rivalry, travelling, difficult situations with other children, managing your own parents(!) about parenting your children.
Week 8 Fears & Anxieties
Our 3rd implementation week tackles fears & anxieties. We'll look at helping our children with their big emotions and any anxieties, including that biggie of separation anxiety. I'll also talk about what you can do when you're having a hard time in general, and in particular if you're going through a divorce or separation.
PLUS these AMAZING Bonuses!
Learn how to partner effectively & respectfully with your Partner about parenting. Reduce conflict & bring harmony to your relationship as well as your children.

"I was at my wits end with my 3 yr olds tantrums and exhausting behaviour. I used to see tantrums as a negative thing.
Now, from doing Helena's course I really understand why tantrums happen and not only that, but I've also learned how to 'be' with my son in these moments.
Helena's approach to this course is practical, honest and nurturing.
Thanks Helena for caring and sharing. Eoin thanks you too for teaching me how to be a better more connected mum. x" Susan
I'm Helena Mooney and I'm a Parenting Coach, Doula & Mum to 2 kids aged 9 & 3.
When my daughter was born I thought I'd do things 'right' and things would be easy. Surely it can't be THAT hard?!
I imagined myself to be calm & fun & patient & kind & loving & 'fully present' with her. Whilst also living my own life to the full.
I ended up, you guessed it(!), exhausted, frustrated & overwhelmed.
I realised I wanted to find out more.
My desire to be respectful & non-punitive, to hold boundaries and address challenging behaviour led me to do extensive research & discover incredible organisations & mentors.
I became a Parenting by Connection Instructor and an Aware Parenting Instructor.
Today, not only do I know how to parent the way I want to with my own kids, but I help other parents with their's. And I'd love to support you too.
