First... the Why
As parents, we love our little peeps and want to do the best job possible to support them and future generations to thrive. There is no instruction manual for parenting, so we all do the best we can with what we know, often with very little time to dedicate to teaching our little peeps about the important stuff in life. I want to make that challenge a little easier.
Next... the How
Through Choose the ‘Tude I support my little peeps by passing on things I wish I knew earlier in life in the form of fun and engaging ‘Tude Tools. The tools facilitate positive choices, respect and personal responsibility in age-appropriate ways.
Now... the Who
I’m a Gen X mum of two little Gen Alphas, 5 & 7 years old at the time of writing. My partner and I work full-time. Like so many other families in today’s society, we embody the daily and weekly juggling act of parenting, income generation, career, family and friends – to varying degrees of success.
My children have attended full-time child care all of their lives, and now before and after school care five days a week, which tears me apart.
Life long learning, telling it straight, personal choice, everyone is doing the best they can with the resources they have, and family comes first.
Music - pretty much any genre, creating stuff, my Thermie, my two little peeps and my amazing partner who makes me laugh every day.
At the beach with my family, singing loudly at home, fossicking in books stores, learning stuff and interesting conversations.
Meditation - 15+ years and still improving! Social media #newbie. Cooking, socialising and taking time out to rejuvenate.
One of my concerns is helping my little peeps to develop strong values and positive attitudes (‘Tudes), so they can deal with whatever life sends their way. Because I don’t have a lot of time with them, I’m using my Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) skills, new knowledge from studying Neuroscience and Developmental Psychology, and considerable life experience to create fun,
interactive tools to pass on the best of what I know, in a way that they understand and enjoy. All with the intention and hope that these tools and resources instil good old fashioned strong values, and gives them the resilience and confidence to navigate life’s many experiences.
I figure many families are in a similar spot, so I thought I’d turn complex topics into easy to use tools to share with other busy parents.
