Oh Lauren, this is so beautiful! I could really do with giving myself more attention – it’s so easy to subconsciously put everything else first.”

Then How to Talk to Your Child is for you!

This course will help you find time with your child by making every word you say to them count!

It is NOT a parenting course that changes your parenting , instead it works with your parenting style to show you exactly how to mould your child's behaviour whilst giving them confidence, resilience and emotional intelligence.


This course is for every Mum who ever wondered to themselves, “How do I protect my child from the world?” Let me SHOW you how to raise a confident and resilient child just through how you talk to them.

Lauren How to Talk to Your Child

Oh, and ladies one more thing...

Let me make this absolutely clear - I believe that you are already an Amazing Mum!! FACT!!

Unlike some other parenting courses, this course won't try and change you or make you feel guilty.

Instead, what it will do is give you more confidence in your parenting skills, show you how to deliver your own parenting values, and teach you how to follow your instincts.

It is so important that our children are raised in supportive and compassionate environments so that they can reach their fullest potential as they grow into kind, resilient and well-adjusted adults.

This course will show you how to make every situation, no matter how challenging for you or your child, turn into a positive experience with positive outcomes.

If I haven't yet convinced you that this course is for you, then call me, email me, message me! Contact me and I'll show you how you and your family will benefit from joining x

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I see the course outline before signing up? +

I'm so excited you asked! Of course you can see what you're buying before you buy it!!!!

Add your email address to the sign in box to the right of screen and I'll send you an outline of course right to your inbox!

How much time will it take up and can I do it at my own pace? +

The modules for the foundation course (Essential Elements) will be released over a 10 day period. This will be enough time for you to complete each module. But you will have lifetime access to the course so you don't HAVE to complete it in the first 10 days.

The intermediate and advanced course (Practical Parenting and Complex Cases) modules will be released on a Monday each week until the end of the course. But like the foundation course, you will have a lifetime access.

What age does my child have to be for me to benefit from this course? +

A good question that is all dependent on your child's stage of development and maturity. As a general rule, mothers of children who are on the cusp of becoming verbal right through to mothers of children who are prepubescent will get the most out of this course.

To clarify, I use the word 'verbal' and not a specific age because children develop their verbal communication at different rates - boys, for example, generally reach this milestone later than girls. However, children's comprehension of language is earlier than their verbal abilities, which is why I say 'on the cusp of' becoming verbal. If you are really wanting an age bracket, however, you will easily be able to apply the strategies in this course if your child is approximately 18months to 2 years old.

At the other end of the spectrum, I have said 'prepubescent' rather than an age limit. Once we get into the teenage years, it's a whoooole new ball game!! Again, it will depend on the development and maturity of your child, but if you have a child up to 11 years of age, you will still greatly benefit from this course.

If you're unsure of whether this course is for you or not, contact me and we'll work it out together.

If I love it, can I upgrade to the next level even after I've signed up? +

Absolutely! In fact, as the course scaffolds (the courses build on the previous one), you won't have to pay the full price again of the course you're upgrading to!

The total cost to upgrade from Essential Elements to Meaningful Messages is: $50

$47 (EE) + $50 = $97 (MM)

Payment plans are available - see below for available payment plans.

When can I start seeing the results of this course with my child? +

Immediately! I'm not joking. If you apply the strategies and processes I've outlined in the foundation course, particularly in regards to reflections of empathy, you will see a difference in how your child responds to what you say.

What payment plans are available? +

Great question!

For Essential Elements ($47), we accept upfront payments or $23.50 two months.

For Meaningful Messages ($97), we accept upfront payments or $25.00 three months, $22.00 for last month.

To clarify, the prices above are once off payments not annual fees. That means, once you've paid the $47 or $97, that's all you have to pay

What if it's not for me? +

Although I think my course is awesome and many, many Mums will get so much from it, I'm not under the illusion that this course will fit perfectly for everyone, although I really wish it could!

I will be sad to see you go, but if you've had a look at the course and felt the strategies, processes and techniques aren't for you or your family, that's okay, I will gladly offer you a 30 day money back guarantee. In this instance, however, I will have to remove your access to the private membership portal and the ongoing support groups to make it fair for other members who have paid. But, you will still get regular updates from me on social media and to your inbox if you wish.
