Our Most Popular Talks
Here is a brief synopsis of our most popular talks. Talks marked with an asterisk are particularly suitable for PTA or school events.
*7 Simple Ways to be a Better Parent
This is our most popular introductory talk, based on our first book, Seven Secrets of Successful Parenting. We help parents identify what type of parent they are naturally and where their strengths lie. We also reveal the secrets of other types of parents, so they can use them too. This talk is delightful on its own and parents leave feeling confident and inspired. It also works perfectly as the first in a series.
*7 Simple Ways to be a Better Parent – (for parents of teenagers)
The seven secrets in our first talk work just as well for parents who have children at secondary school or teenagers, but we use more appropriate situations and anecdotes.
If your school is both primary and secondary, we can either give separate talks, or combine the two so one talk is suitable for all parents with children of all ages.
Seven Simple ways to Stop Sibling Rivalry

How to Get Your Child to Eat Properly and have a Happier Atmosphere at the Table
The popularity of this talk has been staggering. With the proliferation of junk food these days, it’s not surprising how many parents have trouble getting their children to eat healthy food and green things. This talk really helps.
*Friendship Issues and Bullying
Children spend years making and breaking friendships and forming new groups. So at one time or other, almost every child is going to have to work through friendship issues. Whether your child is feeling the victim or is accused of being a bully, this talk helps parents to help their child.
What to do When Your child Says NO!
One of the most common problems parents have with their children is getting them to cooperate. This talk will make it much easier. In this talk we give parents the strategies they need to get their children to do what they ask, without a lot of backchat.
How to Boost Your Child’s Self-Confidence
Lacking confidence can affect your child’s whole outlook. Once he thinks he isn’t good at something, he can stop trying altogether. Confident children, on the other hand, aren’t so sensitive to setbacks. They can take criticism without crumpling into tears and when something upsets them, they bounce back. This talk helps parents to build their child’s self esteem.
