We all have different skills and strengths as parents; with this in mind we like to work with you as you discover your strengths and help you build new ones...

01: Raising Happy Healthy Children

"It's easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." [Frederick Douglass]



This is a six-session model designed to help parents and careers to get on the same page of ground rules to help manage behaviour and challenge the home to be happy!



  1. Session one is about getting to know one another and establishing an open honest communication dynamic.

  2. In session two we will work on creating a family vision for parenting and encouraging child behaviour success.

  3. The third session works through general home boundaries and explores how we establish ground rules and communication.

  4. Session four is all about ensuring that all parents and careers are on the same page.

  5. Session five is a retrospective focussed session where we look deep at ourselves to identify our parenting push buttons and how we can manage these.

  6. Our final session builds on all we have discussed in the context of behaviour modification (for both parent/careers and child).  The approaches explored focuses strongly on positive reinforcement models.




02: Executive Parenting

"Success is not forever and failure isn't fatal." [Don Shula]


Balancing the life of a busy professional and an active parent is really tough.  This coaching program is designed to help you find the balance and get your head around all the demands on you so that you can fulfill the many and varied expectations others have of you. 


It is a six-session model where we look at your life before children (and what you miss), the current expectations and how you want your life to be moving forward…




03: Building A Family Mission Statement

"Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time." [Rabindranath Tagore]


Homes can benefit from some of the wisdom we find in the corporate world. This coaching strategy is a three-session model which must involve all parties affected by the proposed Mission Statement.


The process typically follows:



  1. What makes your family unique? What is your secret energy all about?

  2. What does your family stand for? What do you believe in? What makes you unique?

  3. How do we handle tough times? What do we do in times of adversity? What does conflict look and feel like in our home?





Coaching is a formulate approach to helping us through specific times in our lives and is powerful when we have the time to focus our energies close in on one or two specific areas in need of change or enrichment…


However sometimes it is not so clear cut and specific.  Sometimes we just need a person to help debrief life with, pick up on some of the ‘nuisances’ in our lives that might benefit from change focus and to challenge us to better for ourselves, so that we can be better at what we do…


The Poppet Centre also provides a mentorship relationship for individuals and couples to help balance things within our world.
