“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
You make the weather! This is what the Peaceful Parenting Challenge is all about, recognizing and harnessing your power to create a beautiful climate in your home.
Join the Peaceful Parenting Challenge today and harness your power!
Peaceful Parenting has parents look inward to identify personal triggers and develop ways to create mindfulness, ways to avoid boiling over and ways to increase positive thoughts. Parents will gain valuable tools for becoming calmer, happier and less reactive.
Each week participants will have access to a recorded webinar to learn about Peaceful Parenting. You will learn important new tools and skills each week and then have time to practice them before moving on to the next webinar.
Participants will be added to a facebook group for the challenge – providing access to:
Because this is a web based challenge you can join from any where in the world. And because the webinars will be recorded, you’ll be able to watch them on your own time, when it’s convenient for you. You will also have access to the instructor and be able to ask questions as they come up.
As you start thinking about your New Years resolutions, consider how becoming a more peaceful parent can impact your life and your children’s lives.

What other parents had to say about the challenge:
‘I found that the practices were totally applicable to everyone else, not just my older then toddler children. it has helped me become a more calm person, and my voice doesn’t have to be loud to be heard any longer. makes for a less stressful life when dealing with adults. I no longer own their reactions. pretty fun actually to watch grown adults trying to push the same buttons they were able to push a few months ago with no success. and I will say that my relationship with my husband has improved dramatically. he’s even “stealing” some of my tricks!!!” Kimberly
“these practices are affecting every area of my life and I love it!” Katherine
“I am so glad that I am a part of this, I have always thought of myself as being a pretty relaxed modern thinking momma. These exercises have taught me so much not only about me and my daughters but to be quite honest I have been applying all the weeks challenges to my ex ( If you have one you are laughing right now and if you don’t you are most likley thinking I need to try this on my hubby) I can tell you that we have a pretty toxic up and down relationship and these last few weeks have been from my side anyway so much less stressfull for me:)” Tammy
“Being mindful this week has really solidified the breathing exercise I’ve found. Today so far has been a day when I feel like the exercises are really clicking for me. Being in the moment has helped me to enjoy the most simple things. Not being distracted this morning allowed me to witness a joyous act from my son. As I nursed my daughter, he came over and kissed her as he does most days. Then he gently grabbed her little hand and placed a finger in her palm. Instinctively as babies do, she grasped his finger. The smile and proud look on his face just about made my heart explode. I got to enjoy this moment as I wasn’t busy worrying about what we needed to get done this morning before we headed out. I was there. I was present. It was amazing. I’ve had such an enjoyable morning with my children. Even the often stressful lunch before nap was filled with laughter. I was there. I was present. I stopped worrying about rushing to finish.” Erin
“So when I heard about this peaceful parenting challenge from Sarah, I thought, “I’m more like WW3 parenting. ” And I thought it was going to be a bunch of How To’s in dealing with kids behaviour.
But I’m so glad it wasn’t like that. We’ve all heard that kind of advice before. None of it takes into account the mental, physical and emotional state of the parent.
Sarah, you really highlighted that peaceful parenting starts with a peaceful parent.
I made a huge breakthrough in the last week. I started noticing the little things like how cute my kids smiles are. I wasn’t noticing that before cos I was so caught up in just getting through the day.
Thanks Sarah!” ~ Kaurina
“I am grateful for the challenge. I think I learned alot and would be interested in a round 2. I think the biggest aha moment was recognizing my triggers. The challenges helped me remember the mom I used to be and I am working on getting back there. The other thing I have been working on is letting go and focusing on what I feel is most important for my family instead of worrying about what someone else might think is important. Thank you!” Leah
