Hi, welcome to even better parenting.

I'm Paulene Richardson, early years parenting coach, working with parents to maximise family happiness.

Parents hire me so they can exchange anxiety, exhaustion and frustration for calmer, confident parenting and more contented kids.

Early years parenting isn’t easy, it can be hard, confusing and stressful, especially when you don’t know what to do for the best.

Desperately flitting from one ‘instant solution’ to the next, often leads to increased anxiety, a sense of failure and exhaustion.

  • Do you find yourself thinking “there has to be a better way”?

  • Wondering just what would make your child happier and more content?

  • Or what would make parenting less stressful and more enjoyable for more of the time?

  • Perhaps you sometimes feel like you are not the parent you want to be and don’t know what else to do as you feel like you’ve tried everything and you’re exhausted?

I’ve certainly felt like that and it’s awful.

Feeling disappointed, feeling as though you’re letting your children (and yourself) down is incredibly painful and so exhausting.

When exhaustion sets in, everything begins to feel impossible.

What if I told you there’s a better way, a way that will result in happier, confident parents and calmer, more contented kids?

There is a better way

With coaching, the right information and support you can create the happy, harmonious home you dreamt of, one that nurtures every family member, including you.

We’ll discover what’s not working for you and then decide what information, skills and support are needed to move you from where you are to where you really want to be.

Finding a different way is easier with support

Changing habits or patterns alone is not impossible but it is really hard. It’s why people in all walks of life seek out coaches to advise and support them achieve important goals.

I would love to work with you, to discover what is holding you back, support and guide you through the steps needed to create the home life you want for your children, and yourself.



In summary even better parenting is your gateway to:

  • enjoy parenting more

  • a practical parenting plan for family happiness

  • understanding more about managing your child's developmental needs

  • deal with everyday family issues in positive ways

  • raise strong, confident, resilient children
