Kindness Jar

An activity to promote random acts of kindness, bouncing back when situations are difficult or don't go our way and assisting children with thinking about others. This activity can be used with your behaviour management system. 


Time Saver and Management Guide 

My blueprint of working from home, running my own business with 3 kids. This is how I schedule my days to ensure I still have time for me, quality time with my kids, date night with hubby and run a successful business. 


Traffic Lights 

A behaviour management system that can be used in the classroom and at home. Creating boundaries with children, clear expectations and consequences and a rewards system to encourage positive behaviour. The key is consistency and be sure to fill this out with your child so they are involved in the process. 

what people have to say

about jo

"I am in awe of you Jo and all your wisdom. You have a raw honesty as well, too many mothers are afraid to be honest in how they are coping, your honesty breaks down other’s walls. I’ve been struggling the last few days knowing I need to get more disciplined with our schedule/work routine with COVID-19 isolation now working from home, home schooling our twin 8 yr old boys and nurturing our 1 yr old boy all with being 8 months pregnant but struggling with where to start and feeling like I’m failing. THANK YOU, BEAUTIFUL WOMAN for sharing your experienced knowledge! You have inspired me to put my big girl pants on and get on top of our new routined life in a creative, fun way!"

“We’ve found that implementing a daily routine (using Story & Co Planners) at home helps to keep us sane. Our day is varied, it’s not a case of ‘ah what’re we doing now?’ It’s a gentle flow that moves through the day. My husband and I are also working from home so we have a seperate guide for who does what and when. Don’t forget to pop some time in for yourselves!”

"Jo from Story & Co is my best friend! She doesn’t know it yet (or me!) and iso is really screwing with my game! But her wellbeing book on parenthood and helping kids nurture their social and emotional wellbeing is freakin’ fabulous. If you buy just one book this year, make it this one. And while you’re there, say hi from Tori."

"Hey Jo, I’ve been meaning to reach out and say what an amazing book you’ve put together – can’t tell you how much I’ve been enjoying the activities I’m doing with Louis. Such a gorgeous book… Compassion, self love and gratitude filled with lots of important lessons. It’s prompted so many beautiful shared moments already."

Angie from @urbanbrewpods

"You are seriously amazing giving us all of these incredible resources. So kind hearted."


Motherhood: my greatest achievement

“If I could give you one thing in life, I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes, only then would you realise how special you are to me” 

Let's focus on what we can control.
