Your dream parent is inside you. You ARE the parent you always wanted to be.

So often our ability to show our love for our children can be squashed by day-to-day pressures, by challenging behaviour that we’re unsure how to deal with it, and of course, those triggers from our own upbringing and life experiences. You’re in the right place for all you need to enable you to step into your power as a leader in your family and watch your family relationships bloom.

    Today’s guest is Sarah Parkes. Sarah is a mum of 3, a speaker, author & legacy coach. She helps coaches, therapists & healers parent consciously, whilst growing your legacy & impact.

    Her vision is for our children to grow up in a world of possibility, where positive legacy creation is the norm. Where feminine and masculine qualities are equally respected and valued.

    We talk about:

    · Parenting with a thoughtful focus on the legacy you will leave behind (which is often tricky to envisage when you are ‘in the trenches’ with young children)

    · Finding our voice to advocate for ourselves when we have children – the emergence of the lioness!

    · Being present in the moment whilst also looking to the future

    · Dads – and how Cycle Breaker Dads are so wonderful as they buck societal trends. Extra salute to Cycle Breaker Dads
