Joyful Parenting Book
Bring more calm into your life and find peaceful solutions to family problems.
Many peaceful, aware parents still get stuck in stress and worry about their children.
Do you end up yelling, even though you try really hard not to?
Do you feel that there are problems that you just can’t resolve?
One of the big reasons is that the beliefs and habits we learned in our own childhoods are unconsciously shaping our parenting. Left unaddressed, these beliefs and habits can keep us stuck in stress and conflict indefinitely.

More about Freya Dawson
“I received a PhD in Law when my eldest son was 2 years old and it didn’t improve my parenting skills one little bit! I was a clueless, overwhelmed first-time mother who had very high expectations of myself. I struggled every day and felt out of my depth as a parent. I spent a dozen years researching, muddling through and trying out the advice of many teachers including Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, Thomas Gordon and Marshall Rosenburg.
I have experimented with and adapted their teachings and road-tested everything in my own family. What I discovered was a set of Five Skills that provide a complete tool kit for solving family problems and creating harmonious, intimate relationships with children.
I share this research and my own journey from struggle and worry to connection and peace so that you can take the short-cut.”

Freya’s course and book reminded me the joyfulness and love within me and the tools helped me to tap into that. It encouraged me to leave my pre-conditioned thinking at the door and open my heart to joyful parenting….who knew! Her ideas were revolutionary to me, every parent should read this transformative book.
My children love the game “Kissy Cow” that was born from the time spent playing “their” games for 30min every night (Skill 5:Playtime). When asked by the teacher at school “How does Mummy make you laugh?” They replied “Playing Kissy Cow”
Really enjoyed the topic “Question your thinking” and the turn around, most of “”my” issues melted away when I started using this tool regularly. — Trish
The information and processes are really so very helpful and I can honestly say they have really changed and shifted lots of stuff for us! I often call in Freya’s energy in our family dealings and it has been a great help. — Laury
Freya taught me a simple way to not make my family responsible for my sadness or happiness. I have a better understanding of my roles for me and for my family and the teenage years have rolled on much happier! Valuable skills for not just the Mother/Child relationship, but for all relationships. — Julia
My latest blog posts.
When you chose peaceful parenting you may not get much peace for quite a while. What I experienced for many years was far from peaceful. An avalanche of emotions were expressed by my sons that unlocked my own repressed emotions. There was rage, terror, grief and more. It was a FULL ON experience of the…
How many homeschoolers HAVEN’T been asked “But what about socialisation?” by extended family, friends or random strangers? Zero. Exactly none. We’ve ALL been grilled on this topic. Which makes some of us a bit jumpy and defensive. Hence the repetition of this question: “Will my children get enough socialisation if we home educate?” I’ve been…
