Welcome to even better parenting.

I'm Paulene Richardson and I set up even better parenting for parents who want to raise happy, confident, resilient children.

The early years provide the foundation on which the rest of life is built yet for parents they’re so often fraught with uncertainty and anxiety.

You want to give your child the best start. That doesn’t happen by chance.

On my site you’ll find practical information and details of support services which, when used, will mean you can parent with confidence, with contentment, with creativity and joy.

Children are happiest when their developmental needs are met

To meet those developmental needs first they need to be understood .

Information, practical advice and support services provide a pathway to understanding your child’s developmental stages along with the knowledge and skills to meet them.

Montessori-inspired parenting is not home schooling, it doesn’t need expensive equipment, it only requires a willingness to learn about the developmental needs of your child and how to best meet those needs within the family.

even better parenting provides both support and information

  • On my blog page you’ll find articles to help you. Articles targeting the needs of children from toddlers - six years, packed with information, practical ideas and strategies to support good parenting from a Montessori perspective.

  • Parents tell me that understanding more about their child’s developmental needs made a real difference to their parenting, they were more confident and that the changes they made meant everyone in the family was more content.

  • Changing habits or patterns alone is hard, not impossible but really hard, it’s why people in all walks of life seek out coaches and mentors to support them to achieve their goals. I would love to work with you to create a practical parenting plan for your family and to support and guide you to reach your parenting goals.

In summary, even better parenting - empowering parents to:

  • more fully understand and meet their child's developmental needs

  • create a practical parenting plan for their family

  • give their child the best possible start

  • manage everyday family issues in positive ways

  • raise strong, confident, resilient children

  • enjoy parenting more
