Simply Toilet Training - Taking the stress out of toilet training
Countless parents have come to me for support toilet training their toddlers. In this brand new resource from Simply Kids, I share practical, simple solutions that make toilet training downright easy! Removing the pressure on families and replacing it with confidence has a direct impact on the results of toilet training.
We dive into evidence based tips and answers to common questions like bed wetting, signs of readiness and supporting children afraid of pooping in the toilet! Get ready for some honest, toilet talk (couldn't resist the pun!) and take the stress out of toilet training your toddler.
For some families toilet training can take over their lives. It can be stressful to plan outings and every day-to-day activity revolves completely around their toddler learning how to use the toilet. I want to help simplify toilet training for any family feeling overwhelmed and stressed during this process.
I have personally toilet trained over 50 children and during that time I have found that the parents who follow this very simple step-by-step formula to toilet training are confident and calm and so are their toddlers!
Calm, Happy Families - An Introduction to cbt for families
“A man is but a product of his thoughts, what he thinks, he becomes.” – Ghandi
Thoughts, they are what make us human and yet, so often, they go on without a second thought (forgive the pun!). Some people forget to use their thoughts while others don’t even realise it’s an option; the only option for a successful, fulfilled life.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a tool for creating happier, calmer minds. How often have you wished to be a calmer parent? How often have you regretted an outburst or unjust decision because you were overwhelmed, frustrated and emotional?
Change your habits, change your life through CBT.
CBT has played a big role in counselling sessions for decades. It has helped countless people overcome anxiety, depression, anger, obsessive behaviours, guilt, poor self-esteem, the list goes on. Positive thinking isn’t about unicorns and fairy dust (although those things are awesome!) it is about understanding the impact our thoughts have on our lives. We all strive for positively charged lives but not all of us accomplish that. CBT bridges the gap between what we want and what we get.

The Mindful Playbook - over 50 activities and conversations for confident and considerate kids
The Mindful Playbook is written for families ready to practice daily mindfulness and instil a growth mindset during the early years of their children’s lives giving them the best chance possible for a bright future.
Mindfulness is a way of life. One must practice daily for it to take a long term effect. Being mindful allows a person to be completely present and aware. This provides clarity, confidence and calmness. A person that practices mindfulness is able to bounce back from challenges and experiences an overall happier, more fulfilling life due to their growth mindset. They can foresee their own potential and meet it.
The beauty of mindfulness is that it is already present in all of us. You do not need to lose your personality or parenting style when adapting a growth mindset into your family routine. It simply builds on your characteristics and makes you the best version of yourself. Enjoy these evidence-based activities and tips for creating a mindful family.
We will be learning mindfulness through lessons for parents, interactive activities and conversation starters. Keep in mind that this workbook isn’t meant to be read in one sitting. Work through it with your child and try to dedicate time for 1-2 pages a day. It’s great for beginning family time and becoming engaged with your kids.
