Hi, welcome to even better parenting.

I'm Paulene Richardson, specialist early years parenting coach.

Parents everywhere are hungry for ways to lessen family friction, create a happier, calmer home life and set their kids up for success in the future.

Parents work with me because they really want to use gentle, respectful parenting techniques and are frustrated because they feel caught between being gentle and being an ogre if they want to accomplish anything.

If this describes your situation perhaps you’d like to talk about finding a new, calmer path so you can:

  • have more time and energy for family fun

  • use gentle yet effective parenting

  • have kids who listen to you

  • raise strong, confident, resilient children

  • deal with challenging behaviour in a constructive and effective way

  • set your child up for success in the future

  • avoid parent burnout

  • have more energy to enjoy life


Choose which program suits you.

Meet me via video link to ask all your questions

Discovery Session

We’ll discuss what’s causing most stress in your family, what you want to change, and if my program is the right one to bring about the change you seek.
If it’s not I will direct you elsewhere.

At the very least you will clarify your goals, identify more clearly the areas causing stress and gain some fresh ideas on how to move forward.

More co-operation and a deeper connection

Create the family life you really want, one that nurtures every family member, including you.

You’ll be happier, more confident and your kids, calmer and more co-operative.

If you:

  • want to know how to respectfully change your child’s behaviour

  • sometimes find yourself exhausted, thinking “there has to be a better way”

  • find gentle parenting difficult to maintain

  • feel you’re not the parenting the way you want to but don’t know what else to do

even better parenting has a program for you!
