    Today I'm going to share with you how you can make mornings more enjoyable and less stressful. I want you to start your day with a smile! Not one on your face - that would be nice, but even if you're grumpy in the morning, you have an inner smile that you can activate.

    Episode 43 – The One with the Coronavirus

    The Coronavirus has become a global pandemic and changed our daily life as we know it. The planet has slowed down, the schools are shut and people are being asked to stay at home. With all this time on our hands, can we turn this to our advantage or are we drowning in a sea of worry and feeling stuck with nothing to do. Let's have a chat about that.

    Episode 40 – The One with the Boredom Busters

    It's October half term here in the UK and as exciting and fun as it is to have so much time and space away from school, I also know that into that space jumps sibling squabbles, endless requests for more sweets, screens and other items that require strict limits. Hold those boundaries firm - don't let the giddyness of the holidays weaken your resolve!

Your kids need this - and they’ll love it

Can’t recommend these podcasts or anything Lisa does highly enough. She understands the struggles that our kids are facing and she has an authentic, lighthearted and fun way of connecting to them as she delivers her message. These podcasts help to reassure your child and to give them the tools they need to deal with their worries and to feel good about themselves - skills for life.
Please take the time - our kids deserve it.

Thank you

Brilliant podcasts, my 9yr old loves them and listens to them to get to sleep, hugely helpful, thank you, thank you so much!!

Change your “I can’ts into “I cans”!

It’s good because it’s about taking your “I can’t folder” out of your drawer. I like it because anything you can’t do you make it into “I can’t do it yet” so it stops me worrying about the tings I can’t do right now. I found it really helpful.
