‘Belinda helped me interact more powerfully with my daughter. Belinda gave me confidence that I was on the right track, and that I could do this parenting thing, without losing my mind. She is just a lovely person who is very easy to chat to, is non-judgemental and is credible and caring.'
When I became a teacher, I did so, so that I could be at the forefront of children’s learning and at the start of their education in assisting them to become the best they could be! After years of teaching, I fell in love with not only my work with the children, but additionally helping their families to see the best in their children as well.
When I started The Resource Kit 10 months ago, it was this passion for assisting parents to see the best in their children and giving them the tools for positively dealing with challenging behaviour that drove me to make this a business that continues to inspire and surprise me everyday.
I would like to share with you a wonderful testimonial from a lovely mother I had the pleasure of working with a few months ago. I felt so privileged to be invited into her home and to meet her family as I do with every other family I visit. I take my time to share with you the great things you are doing already, to model or discuss some new ways of working with behaviours and follow up with e-mails, messages and phone calls to further celebrate the successes with families!
Its feedback like this one below, that make my job so worth every second! I love empowering parents to see that their best parenting skills are right there with them, they sometimes need the reassurance to know how to use them!
If you are struggling with toddler tantrums or rebelliousness, baby sleep schedules (or lack of), I would highly recommend Belinda. After just one afternoon with me, I was able to apply some useful and practical new strategies to utilise on my twonager*. Belinda helped me interact more powerfully with my daughter, and I worked out how we could avoid the mind numbing daily arguments over tooth-brushing, nappy changing and getting dressed. Perhaps most importantly, Belinda gave me confidence that I was on the right track, and that I could do this parenting thing, without losing my mind. In a second session, Belinda helped me implement a sleep routine for my 5 month old. I was so sleep deprived and out of ideas, and she was able to immediately suggest a number of changes that had an effect that night, and every night since. Whilst he is no perfect angel, I am certainly getting more sleep, some alone time, and seeing light at the end of the tunnel.
In addition, she is just a lovely person who is very easy to chat to, is non-judgemental and is credible and caring. She followed up with me to see how we were tracking, and she shared the wins with me when I made some changes and started to see results. I highly recommend her, I am absolutely positive that she will make a positive difference to your family dynamic and well-being. I am positive that I will be calling on Belinda down the track as other milestones and challenges arise.
