The Wholehearted Parent

An exclusive program for your parents

Jodie’s exclusive, in-depth new program

How can you truly engage your whole self in your parenting and bring about real long-lasting change in your family?

It’s increasingly impossible to live up to the images of ‘perfect parenting’ we see in the media. Especially when our support networks are not robust – and we’re now expected to be even better parents than the previous generation!
 
Want more calm? More ease and flow? Respectful (not just obedient) behaviour? More laughs? More love, connection and family harmony? A better way to balance a career with your important role as a parent?
 
You can do it. (You just need a bit of help.)
 
Jodie Benveniste’s Wholehearted Parent program helps you take the first step towards raising your children with heart and soul. Towards being a calm and connected parent who’s in touch with both your own needs, as well as your children’s. And towards creating a fulfilling, inspiring and loving home life.
 
Tried and tested by Jodie herself
 
Through her own parenting and personal challenges, and years’ of research, Jodie has refined a set of tools and solutions which anyone can use. Over four sessions, Jodie will lead you through her Intuitive Parenting framework, which allows you to tap into your own insight and inner wisdom, to apply it to your individual parenting, to create lasting, positive change.
 
In this program, Jodie will share how to:
 
• Keep your cool more often, for longer, when previously you’d end up shouting.
• Enjoy more opportunities for connection with your kids.
• Support your children in their individual emotional journeys to become empowered, heart-centered people.
• Master your responses to your specific ‘trigger’ events. (You’ll be surprised how quickly this can change!)
• Transform the mood of your home from that of a battleground into a more harmonious place.
• Set your children up with essential life skills they’ll need to navigate an uncertain and ever-changing world.
 
Each program is limited to only 12 participants, to allow everyone to receive individual attention and interaction with Jodie. Everyone will have the opportunity to be heard and to explore their unique family issues within their individual context.

Sarah Bowen, Melton City Council

“It was great to have Jodie as the ‘expert mum’ providing tips and expert advice. I will certainly recommend Jodie in future to my colleagues, and should we how an event such as this, or similar again, I will certainly be calling!”
Karen Bloffwitch, Westfield

“We had really positive feedback from parents about Jodie’s talk. I can see there is a real need for parents to have a way of helping them examine their parenting practice as it seems our lives have become so fast that there is little time for self reflection. Thanks again for an engaging presentation.”
Kerry Kaesler, Scotch College

“It’s lovely to see that people felt much more confident about their parenting and relationship with their child/children after the presentation and felt confident in rating their parenting skills higher as a result. Thank you for being so easy and collaborative to work with. I have enjoyed the process and appreciated your willingness to work with us.”
Jane Bullock, Campbell Partnership
