Grace and Katie are twins who love to draw. Grace loves everything to be organised and neat, while Katie loves everything to be bright, bold and messy. When they want to draw a map of their home and street, the girls can’t agree on how it should be done so they each decide to create their own map. But that doesn’t work out quite as well as they’d planned.
Perhaps working together might be more fun after all! An imaginative exploration of individuality, sisterhood, creativity and appreciating each other’s strengths.

Knowing your child’s mind…
There is nothing so fascinating as the human brain. Over the past couple of decades, advances in technology have made possible new and exciting insights into how the brain grows, learns and operates. And there is growing consensus that this knowledge is of great relevance to parenting and all manner of child-rearing contexts.
Nurturing a Healthy Mind takes the available science on how the brain responds to environment stimuli and presents it in an easy-to-understand and user-friendly format. It ‘translates’ what neuroscience is telling us about the development of the brain from infancy to the early school years and explains how this knowledge can help us deal with the everyday realities of raising healthy and happy children.
So if you’ve ever wondered whether enrolling your three-year-old in enrichment programs will give them a head start in life, or have simply despaired at your four-year-old’s inability to sit still, you’ll find the book Nurturing a Healthy Mind essential reading.

Being a parent can be tough and there are times when you just don’t have all the answers. For parents who find themselves faced with a seemingly endless spiral of conflict, poor behaviour and ineffective discipline, this is the evidence-based parenting program they’ve been waiting for. Divided into 12 sessions, it first focuses on developing a strong relationship between parent and child. Once a firm foundation of parenting strategies has been developed, the program then moves onto effective discipline. The discipline program is designed so that it is self-sustaining and allows the parent to step back from what is often an emotionally charged situation and instead use predetermined consequences. It also emphasises teaching children ownership of their behaviour.
The beauty of this program is that the principles can be used in each of the child’s environments (at home, at school, with grandparents, etc.), while it has also been designed so that any parent can use it as well as those with children who have been diagnosed with behavioural disorders such as ADHD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, or explosive and non-compliant behaviour. It’s a common sense, practical guide to getting your kids back on track and creating a happier home!
