What are people saying about Mommy is a Person?
It has been so empowering to remember that “mummy is a person” and to realize it’s OK for me to have off/on duty time. Funny from yesterday: After I’d finished the hugs, kisses, happies, prayer, songs, more hugs and kisses and water and toilet with my 5-year-old, she called out from her room, “Mum I have a question!” My husband, who’s totally on-board with all this now that I’ve explained it all to him, responded with, “Sorry, Mummy is off duty but you can leave a message with me.” I think they’re getting it!

I’m so glad I spent the time watching the Mommy is a Person training this past weekend. I have felt a real shift in my attitude already this week. I have scheduled in some very important things I need to do for myself, my spirituality and for my family every day/week and I am feeling very positive about the changes it will bring to my family. Its hard being a Mother but the training has provided me with a new focus, a new approach and I am now excited for the future and I am finding much more joy in every day.

2. Family Systems Builder Program
Ready to chart a course towards the future you really want for your children?
All successful institutions (countries, companies, and yep, families too) rely on three basic systems – a legal system (laws, consequences, discipline), an economic system (who does what and who gets what), and a culture (traditions, shared history and identity).
Our Family Systems Builder Program offers three one-hour training sessions full of tried-and-true methods and ideas–plus worksheets and exercises that will help you create family systems tailored to YOUR family’s needs.
- Building Your Family Legal System (helping children WANT to behave the way you want them to behave by establishing a positive and loving environment with clear and consistent laws and consequences)
- Building Your Family Economic System (teaching your children about work and money through building a micro-economy in your home that mirrors real-world economic principles and helps your children learn the importance of work and the value of money)
- Building Your Family Culture (creating strong family identity and culture that can trump peer culture and offer your children the sense of belonging and fun they crave
Our Family Systems training is rooted in principles from books written by NYTimes Bestselling Authors, Richard and Linda Eyre.

What are people saying about the Family Systems Training?
Before finding the Family Systems training, I felt like my mothering had spiralled downwards to a place where I never thought it would be. I was snappy, impatient and constantly saying those two dreaded words “hurry up” all day long. I found myself spending very little quality time with my children. I cried on my own a lot. I cried to my husband a lot. I felt like I was drowning and just getting through each day doing the bare minimum as a mother…but participating in the Family Systems training helped me realise that while there’s a lot to work on, I am not completely off the rails and I can bring this back on track and reach the desired destination for my family. The new systems are really paying off! We sat down as a family and created a simple list of family rules with clear consequences as suggested – and this is working so much better than the never-ending list of rules we had come up with over time! I am learning to manage my responses to our children’s negative behaviour. We have introduced the “repenting bench” and have the kids who are having issues with each other hold hands while they are sitting there (I love that part because it makes them smile for a split second despite being so angry at one another). The “Gunny Bag” has been introduced to our family and he comes out when the children have not done their “pick up 10″ or “zones.” We are also reassessing our family traditions and “I love you rituals” and thinking about what will be the most important memories for our children as they grow up. Thank you so much for the help, ideas, inspiration and motivation I needed!

I just want to thank you both with all of my heart for the wonderful training. I learned SO MUCH! It literally reminded me that I can have goals, make changes and have the family of my dreams. I had completely forgotten that. I was just in survival mode. I am now striving to take baby steps to make things better in my home now and build a future for my family that will be beautiful. I know I can do it!
– Suzy Gallup
These trainings helped us realize that we’re doing a lot of things right – and that was so affirming. We loved the chance to hear so many new ideas and discuss together what we really want to teach our children and what methods will best lead us to our end goals. Thank you so much!
