So what’s Starbucks got in common with your parenting?

Like it? Share it!

Did you know that Starbucks trains new store employees for three weeks, and a total of 35 hours to make a cup of coffee?

Companies spend over £100 billion each year on training and development to help their employees be more successful at their job yet  even though many say that raising a family is one of the most important roles a parent will ever do, there is little to no formal preparation and ongoing development to ensure your success – because kids don’t come with a handbook!

So ….that’s why I created my Parenting Made Easy CDs and MP3 downloads so that you can listen to them and pick up loads of ideas, techniques, strategies and practical tips while driving in your car or out jogging, just pottering around in the kitchen or drinking a coffee in Starbucks.

Bringing up kids is not an exact science – and what works for one doesn’t always work for the other and my passion is not to point a finger at you, judge you or criticise you, as we are all a work in progress but surely it must be worth  the price of a haircut (and not even the highlights) to listen to a CD, come on a workshop or spend an hour or two with me over the phone, or sitting in my Summerhouse in Surrey, fine tuning your parenting so you can be the best you can be for your kids because as L’Oreal likes to point out – our kids are definitely “worth it” !
