Every parent knows that children don’t come with an instruction manual and yet so many parents feel they should instinctively know how to raise a happy and thriving family. Often parents feel that taking a parenting course is like an admission to have failed as a parent. Quite the opposite is true:
Being open to learning about what really supports the flow in families strengthens our natural abilities and equips us with valuable new understanding, helping us connect more profoundly with our children.
Why work with us?
We believe that being in the right relationship with your child leads to successful parenting.
We believe parenting is not about learning the latest skill set, but about true connection between parent and child.
We believe strong roots create a strong family.
Let us help you in making your time with your children the best it can be.
Working with us, you will gain a firm, practical understanding of what supports love and flow in families.
Rooted Parenting is a programme for parents/carers, whether in partnership or single, who are struggling with their role or their children’s situation.
We established Rooted Parenting because we are passionate about supporting parents in the most rewarding, challenging and important job they’ll ever do in their lives.
Our programme uses an approach that considers the whole family system and what, within that system strengthens or weakens it. This takes the emphasis away from the child and removes the blaming of the child or the parent. By removing judgement we are simply defining and reframing the truth.
We provide a safely held environment, where parents can access their innate ability to parent their children in the best way possible, given their own unique circumstances.
Some parents who attend have quite specific problems/issues they need to address. Others just come along because they want to know how to get the best out of their children. The group setting makes the course very engaging and parents learn a lot through sharing and hearing about the experience of others. This gives support, reassurance and ‘normalises’ some common place issues that other parents also feel.
Our aims are to
- empower parents to stand in their own strength
- develop understanding of how to diffuse tensions
- allow resolutions to family issues
- release children to being simply relaxed and happy children
- enable parents to enjoy being parents
- encouraging communication and cooperation
