Mamma and Mini is learning kit for parents to do with their children to develop a deeper bond, determine values and identify their communication and love languages. “I will learn with you” is a mini passion project that parents do with their kids so they learn how to model values, resilience, love of learning, celebration of wins, use of strengths and passions and love their bodies.
As parents we can often get confused with, what is our role? Should we be teaching algebra, providing plant based meals, practise gratitude daily, enrolling them in extra curricular activities? I’m exhausted just writing this. When I became a first time parent, I said pass me the manual? Where is it? Surely I can research this stuff! I excelled as a teacher which I studied, surely I can do the same here. But what I learnt, after years of teaching and becoming a mum of three, the learning was in the doing, in the becoming and determining who I was and who I wanted to be as a parent. The answer is, there is no manual, and your job isn’t teaching them how to count or read, your job is to teach them life skills, values, resilience and most importantly that they are loved and loveable. Research studies have shown when children have their social and emotional wellbeing supported they thrive in school, relationships and at life.

“Jo. An inspirational woman. All her hard work, determination and passion for what she loves honestly pays off and I have never met someone who has helped me in life’s obstacles and in end achieve winning results, every time....Traffic lights work, meditation works, keep it all coming....Thanks for being you. Keep up the outstanding work”
“Jo has really taught me and shown me practical ways of instilling gratefulness in my kids. That Despite situations or circumstances we have so much to be grateful for and that it isn’t all in material possessions. Jo is an amazing educator, offering practical tips and examples of how to do this, for us we were inspired to create gratitude books with our kids that they can write, or draw things that mean something to them something that prompts them to be grateful and being in a mindset of thanks is teaching my children we truely have so much and just having the freedom and air we breath is something to be truely grateful for. I’ve definitely noticed in my children they are more aware of being grateful and kind to their friends and family. Thankyou jo for giving me tools and applications to teach myself and my family.”
“Jo is exceptional at what she does. She helped me come up with a reward system for my children at home. The kids loved helping me draw up the traffic lights and think of items they would not be allowed to play with if in the red zone. I’m so thankful for Jo’s professional guidance and advice. Thanks Jo! My kids behaviour really improved!”
