Discover the Lost Art of Natural Parenting

Six quick-fire guides that will transform your relationship with your child, help them thrive into the best version of themselves and make your job as a parent so much easier (and more fulfilling). Packed with actionable ideas and examples to flip the narrative on traditional discipline including punishment, power over and coercive parenting techniques. 


The Conscious
Discipline Guides

No more time outs, no more yelling, no more threats.

It’s possible to gain your child’s cooperation while maintaining your connection. Let me show you how. 

Flip the narrative on traditional punishment while deepening your connection with your child through modelling, leading by example and most importantly showing them that they’re loved for who they are and not what they do.

And some of the outcomes of this approach?

  • Instilling your child with a growth mindset, rather than a fixed mindset
  • Encouraging and teaching problem-solving skills
  • Promoting the development of a secure attachment 
  • Fostering natural independence, boosting your child’s confidence and nurturing their self-worth
  • Maintaining your natural influence as a parent, which is so much more powerful than coercion

These guides are exactly what I need!


“The level of cooperation parents get from children is usually equal to the level of connection children feel with their parents.”

Everything begins with connection, first to ourselves and then to our children.


You're drowning in the “shoulds” and “have to’s” of our adult-centred society. . The status quo of the parenting world is that punishment, time outs, threats, rewards, praise and forced manners are the fast track way to gain your child's cooperation. But somewhere in the back of your mind you’re asking yourself, at what cost?

Do you remember being forced to hug and kiss Grandma because your parents told you that's what kind children do?

Did you grow up being asked for the “magic word” but always wondered what the magic word even was?

Were you sent to your room more times than you can remember for the seemingly smallest of things?

Do you find yourself feeling rigid and hesitant to try new things for fear of failing or not being good enough?

Are you giving and giving to your child to the point of resentment? Do you feel like you’ve lost yourself in parenthood and are desperate to fulfil your needs again but don’t know where to begin?

You want to do things differently but in the heat of the moment it can be hard to know what to say and do.

You don’t want to yell, threaten or withdraw your love in these moments but sometimes you don’t know any other way. 

Did your parents withdraw their love and isolate you when you didn’t align with their way of being? Do you find yourself desperate to avoid such measures with your own child?

You know you don’t want any of this for your children. 

You’re committed to breaking generational cycles.

You remember how it felt and know there must be a more connected way that honours the relationship you have worked so hard to build with your child. 

But sometimes you forget it all and revert to what you subconsciously know. 

And that is why the Conscious Discipline Guides were created for you. To offer you a shortcut to doing things differently. 

These guides are exactly what I need!


You have taught me to trust myself when it comes to my baby! That is such a valuable thing. Instead of living in fear and doubt, [I’ve learn to go with] what I instinctively knew to be right. Thank you.

Hi there!

The mainstream often steers us in other directions, and that's where Raised Good comes in—a guide to embracing parenting that feels...well, natural. We're all sensing that the traditional ways might not be the best fit, and while I don't have all the answers, I'm here to ask the tough questions alongside you and advocate for our kids—and for you, their brave and extraordinary parents. Launching a membership experience has always been a dream, and I can't wait to share, connect, and enjoy a virtual coffee chat from my island home nestled in the forest, to yours!

When I first began my journey with Raised Good, it was during those precious moments when my son, then a baby, was napping. Fast forward, and he's now a spirited 10-year-old, a constant reminder of how quickly time flies and how pivotal our roles as parents are. 

Think natural parenting is straightforward? Think again! 

Over time, the Raised Good community has grown immensely, with over a million readers resonating with the message. While I no longer write to the backdrop of his baby naps, my passion and drive remain the same. 

Gabor Mate

"External motivators for behaviour such as rewards and punishments may destroy the precious internal motivation to be good, making leverage by such artificial means necessary by default. As an investment in easy parenting, trusting in a child's desire to be good for us is one of the best."

You will start to flow in your relationship with your child.

Keep these guides close, refer to them often and witness your relationship with your child be transformed. These guides are designed as a quick fire reminder in the moments you need them most. Filled with examples and actionable ideas that will make parenting easier. Your relationship to your child will thrive and you will become allies working together as a team.
