Hand in Hand Parenting Classes
Both the six week Starter Class and three week Tears and Tantrums class developed by Hand in Hand Parenting have the potential to transform your parenting experience by helping you to build a closer, more connected relationship with your child. The classes allow time for a deep understanding of your child and shows the way to repair and transform relationships for a lifetime.
You're welcome to join our group of like-minded folks sharing our parenting experiences. We meet regularly in person and share listening time, stories and insights... and most likely a cuppa and something yummy! Sometimes we read a book together over a few weeks too.
Please email me for more information.
Come along to these informative and empowering group sessions to learn more about how children's emotions work and how our own emotional triggers get in the way of being present. I will share effective strategies to help you maintain the vital connection with your child, build emotional safety and bring more harmony, cooperation, fun and resilience to your relationship with your child.
What are parents saying about working with me?
" I started my parenting by connection classes with Lyra L'Estrange feeling afraid, frustrated and lacking in confidence. After my six week introductory course, I feel enlightened, empowered, confident, full of love for myself, my husband and my daughter. It was a life-changing experience and I look forward to learning more with parenting by connection. Thank you for giving me wholistic framework that gives me confidence to be the best parent I can be!."
" I have changed my approach toward tantrums and huge meltdowns. Instead of feeling angry and frustrated, holding my child close and staying with her had the most amazing impact (even though it felt foreign at first). Being present through the hardest times has decreased challenging behaviour and made us closer!"
"It has given me the tools to do better. To do something differently than how I was parented. I now know how to handle tricky situations and am feeling more prepared........Special Time has really made a HUGE impact on my relationship with my son."

" Thank you Lyra for your warm, gracious and wise approach to understanding children's emotions. I have already seen and felt enormous benefits and changes within myself and my children. For me, it's about getting permission to love your children unconditionally and with empathy and compassion."
"The class has inspired me to live more simply in order to allow more time to be with my family. It has helped make a priority what is so very important to me. Thanks Lyra!"
"This class helped me feel more confident as a parent because I now have tools to put in place. This has decreased the sense of feeling overwhelmed in situations that were extremely challenging. I feel more confident now because now I understand the reasons behind certain behaviour and I can implement techniques which help myself, as well as my child, to cope."
