How do you feel when your kids won’t do what you want them to do, or when they are being incredibly annoying and seem to be intent on driving you nuts?

  • Frustrated?
  • Irritated?
  • Cross?
  • Angry?
  • Overwhelmed?
  • Like you just want to give up?(!)

Ever wish you could wave a magic wand and for everything to get better – easily, simply and enjoyably?

Well, PLAY is as close to a magic wand as we’re ever going to get.  Play is amazing.

⚡ But I know it’s super frustrating that we need to bring play in when we absolutely least, least, least feel like it.

⚡And I know it’s not fair that we need to be playful to get our children to do the things they know they are supposed to do.


  • Play works in helping our children’s brains work again.
  • Play works in helping our brains work again
  • Play allows emotions such as fear, anger and frustration to be released
  • Play is respectful, loving, fun & effective
  • Play connects us to each other again
