Raising kids these days is a tricky business.
The stakes seem higher then ever, and it feels like we're under a huge amount of pressure to get it right.
A busy and full life means that we don't often get the chance to pause and reflect: are we actually giving our kids the best guidance, or are we adequately preparing them for their future?
Consequently, we never really feel in control, or 100% confident that we are doing the right thing.
And just when we think we might have a grip on things, the little treasures grow up a bit more and give us a whole new
problem challenge to deal with!
It's a confusing time: for us and for them.
And if we're not careful, this can lead to a lack of understanding and a relationship with our kids that is distant, fractured, attritional even.
So, if you are in the middle of this right now, what's the answer?
Or, if you've got this looming on the horizon, what can you do to prevent it?
How can you be a great parent, have an awesome relationship with your kids, and make sure you are teaching them the skills they need to succeed in life?
The answer lies in your approach... you need to identify the most important principles, the key elements that make the difference, and then focus your attention and effort on getting these right.
Once you do, the rest falls into place.
If you think of any challenging experience you have had (or are having) with your child; if look closely, you'll see that the underlying cause will be one (or a combination) of the following:
Your approach, your way of thinking, or a lack of skills, will be responsible in some way.
Either you don't really understand your child and what they are going through and/or they are struggling with this themselves.
Your child doesn't yet possess the skills or resources to deal with the situation.
Medical issues aside; that's it!
Once you start to look at parenting through this lens, what you need to do becomes a whole lot clearer.
Parent by design is a research backed programme we created to help you to make significant improvements across ALL three of these key areas.
It will help you to solve any issue you have right now, and will help you to preempt future issues that lie in wait.
Rather than try and teach them everything, our research has identified 5 core skills that our kids will need:
These 5 core skills will help your kids to stand out from their competition and compete economically in a world where technology, AI and algorithms rule.
Over the next 7 days you will learn the key elements of how to organise your day, how to take care of your own development, how to develop a positive relationship with your kids, and help them build the 5 core skills.
Each day there is a module to complete with a mixture of printables, tools and activities for you and your kids.
Complete the challenge and you'll have a daily and weekly system that you can use for as long as you're a parent.
The full PARENT BY DESIGN programme lasts 21 days, but we have a challenge for you.
Try the first 7 days for FREE.

I would highly recommend to any parent needing to get in the here and now of parenting… but also who wants to look to the future too.

It is presented in a very straightforward and easy to read manner and I can already see that there is value in the takeaway.
