Hi! I'm Jen (and that's Carys)

I never saw myself as a mother.  I don’t really ‘do’ nurturing – at least not of things that have a lot of needs and can’t be reasoned with.  In hindsight, I spent rather too much time on my birth plan, and not nearly enough time thinking about what the time after the birth might be like.

When Carys was about four months old I was actually starting to think about discipline (a bit early, I know…).  I didn’t know how I was going to be a parent whose kid didn’t walk all over them without being a parent who always said “no.”

A couple of weeks after that, some friends were visiting with their toddler son.  We were in the living room and he went running down our hallway to our bedroom.  His Mom called after him: “Jack, please don’t go in there – it’s private.  You can go in the nursery or come back to the living room.”

Jack stopped on the threshold of our bedroom, peeked in, and then ran back to the living room.

“How did you do that?” I said.

The answer launched my journey as a parent: toward a Master's in Psychology (focused on Child Development), followed by another in Education, all underpinned by principles of respectful parenting.

Then I launched a podcast to share what I learned with others (I'll send you updates when I release new episodes after you download the Guide).
