I'm a parent of a child aged

5-11 Years

Help me to avoid defiance, backchat and incessant arguing with my children

The world becomes a bigger place...

The 5-11 age group can be challenging and rewarding at the same time.

The logic and reasoning part of the brain has well and truly come online, which means more questioning, comparing, arguing and backchat.

While critical thinking is a normal part of development, it can often come across to parents as being disrespectful and unco-operative, leading parents and children into endless conflict cycles over the most simple requests. 

This is the age where many parents swing between an old school style of parenting (a strict, firm approach) and the new school (softer, permissive), often struggling to find a balance. 

The PSC acknowledges this swing, and teaches parents how to manage their own emotional responses as well as find the middle ground where they can be firm, but fair,  provide structure and boundaries, but deliver it with kindness, patience and respect.   We also help you to communicate with your child so that they will want to listen and co-operate. 

Our 28 Day Make My Child Listen Program will  help you and your child to maintain (or make) important connections with you while developing their own sense of self in a way that is built on respect and loving relationships between all family members.

Amber Purtell Testimonial

I recommend all families to get among the various programs available as we all have room for improvement in one way or another, and Jackie has a way of teaching skills that make sense and are so practical. I am a much happier and more confident parent and person after being apart of the Happy Mummy Handbook program and 28 Day Get My Child To Listen challenge

The PSC has brought something to my family’s life that I can’t even begin to explain. There is no thankyou in the world big enough to say how grateful I am to Jackie and her team. The PSC’s advice and strategies are realistic and their ongoing support is invaluable. Jackie’s programs have been a real game changer for me! Thanks PSC!

With the roadmap Jackie has given me, I feel equipped to appropriately address whatever gets thrown my way. The tools Jackie shares have been priceless and are grounded in sound science. I would highly recommend this program to any parent wishing for deeper connection with and understanding of their child and a smoother, more joy-filled existence.
