Parenting can bring unprecedented joy, love and wonder into our lives but at the same time it can be frustrating, challenging and draining. Disciplinary challenges can leave us feeling helpless, powerless, angry and exhausted. This two-hour session will give you a better insight into the growing child and will inspire you to parent consciously and creatively.
We will be focusing on:
- Power of words and creative language
- Magic of imitation
- Positive direction
- Importance of rhythm and routine
You will leave the workshop ready to conquer the parenting journey with lightness, fun and creative inspiration. You will reclaim your power from your child and be reminded that we are the ones directing this spectacular journey of childhood and beyond, not them!
Imagine this session as a supportive hug! Our morning will be spent problem solving and being reminded that we are not alone in the challenges of parenthood. Let’s collaborate to make our path with child and adult a kinder one instead of something we wish would pass by in a hurry.

Vendor since 2017
Come along to our workshops and meet-ups and learn a skill (or brush up on old ones), talk about what you love, meet new people and spend time focusing on something other than child-rearing. Our broad range of workshops and events are eclectic and stimulating. Midweek events include an on-site creche!
Kin & Kind is about exciting the passion you once had but have lost in the fog of babies, kids and home, in a safe and supportive environment. We want you to leave feeling energised, with a sense of achievement that’s unrelated to the kids.
At the very least, you're 90 minutes closer to nap time.
