I'm Jodie Benveniste, a psychologist, parenting author and the founder of Parent Wellbeing. I'm also mum to two young kids.
I'm not into prescriptive parenting advice - at all. Instead, I believe that all of us can learn some tools and techniques to raise our kids in a way that's going to work in our family.
I created these courses, and this business, because I really struggled when I became a parent. It was nothing like I expected, and I was completely overwhelmed!
But for some strange reason I thought everyone was managing so much better than me. I later found out, they weren't. It's just that we don't talk about what it's really like, and we feel like we're supposed to know what we're doing from day one.
We don't...it's a learning process, and these courses are designed to help all of us to raise our kids with love and purpose.
They are designed specifically for busy parents. I know it can be difficult to get to a specific place at a specific time to attend face-to-face classes.
But we still want all the benefits that can come from knowing what we really want for our family, and coming up with a plan to make it happen. That's what our online courses offer.
And it's delivered in a way that works for you - in weekly bite-size bits, and all accessible from the comfort and privacy of your own home.
If you're pregnant for the first time, then this course is for you! You’re about to confront a major life change – it’s exciting and also a little overwhelming. But you can be prepared!
Manage the emotional ups and downs of pregnancy, navigate birth choices, birth plans, doctors and doulas, and get ready for labour, birth and the arrival of your new little baby!
If you're a new parent with a baby, this course is for you! We all want to make the most of this incredible time in our lives but t it can feel daunting (and exhausting) being a new parent.
You can learn some important parenting skills, tap into your parenting instinct, and feel more in control so you can enjoy the best of life with your new baby.
If you're facing fussy eating, sleep issues, tantrums, discpline problems...or are generally worried about whether you are raising your kids to turn out okay, then this course is for you! If you've tried other parenting solutions and they haven't worked in your family, this course is for you!
