Hello, dear one
Welcome to The Village.
A resting place for parents (just like you) to reflect, receive loving support, tap into a reservoir of parenting wisdom and information, work out creative ways to respond to your children that help them to learn — and to feel that you are growing as a parent, a partnership and a family, too.
You see, parenting is one of the biggest growth paths you can go on. But when we become parents, we often feel deep inside that we should know what we are doing; and that parenting should somehow be instinctive.
The truth is, parenting our babies and growing children requires trial and error! Anytime we act in a way that makes things worse, that is our opportunity to stop and take stock. Review, reflect and ask, “How can I do it better next time?”
That is what The Village is all about.
Helping you be the best parent you can be — with a whole lot of self-compassion, self-care and support. (And a hefty dose of humour and honesty)
Introducing: The Village
A magical place providing
practical and emotional support for parents
of babies + children aged up to 6 years
As a member of the Village, you…
Can say goodbye to:
➔ Isolation and the feeling of being alone in your parenting journey
➔ Overwhelm on how and where to find information
➔ Confusion about what you “should” be doing at every stage and phase
➔ The Google rabbit hole and never knowing which information is reliable or overblown
➔ Constantly questioning your skills, ability, worth and instincts as a parent
➔ Fear-based approaches to parenting (that’s not what we’re about here)
Will walk away with:
➔ Peace and presence in your day-to-day parenting with stress management tools and a group of people that supports you
➔ The ability to respond creatively to your child/ren rather than REACT every time something goes wrong
➔ A tangible sense of parenting unity with your partner
➔ Confidence in how to deal with your child’s changing behaviour
➔ A deeper connection with your child/ren
➔ Faith that you can parent in a way that activates your child’s potential
➔ A stronger, more resilient family unit
Kate and Rohan – Village Participants
“The Parenting Village has provided us with the best resources and opportunities for reflecting on our parenting intentions. We are now more mindful about our actions as parents and clearer on our values, allowing us to make more informed decisions for our family. Thanks to Tracey and the Parenting Village we are becoming the parents we always hoped to be.”
Here’s what’s waiting for you inside the Village:
→ “THE PARENTING GROWTH ZONES” GROUP COACHING PROGRAM
Parenting is one of the biggest growth paths you can go on, and a common theme of our members is a desire to parent with intention. So, Each month, we will deep-dive into the 12 “Parenting growth zones” for those wishing to actively work on being the best parent they can be. (With a whole lot of self-compassion — we don’t believe in perfection here). These Parenting Growth Zones cover the biggest challenges of parenting.

→ ZOOM CALLS FOR EVERY STAGE OF PARENTING
I’ve been working with new parents for almost 20 years. Over that time, I’ve identified the struggles practically all parents will face — and seen one of the biggest ones is isolation. The Village will offset that isolation with a deep sense of connection and community.
Each Zoom call will be like being wrapped in a warm blanket of non-judgemental love and support from myself and your fellow parents. (Not my words — they’re straight from the mouth of a parent.) Our village may be mostly virtual, but it is connected, too.

The Village is perfect for you if:
You’ve completed our other courses, ‘Transform Your Birth’ ‘Thriving as a New Mum’ or ‘Thriving as a New Dad’ group, and you’re wondering what happens next? You don’t want to be left out in the choppy waters of new parenthood!
You want to feel supported and inspired in your role as a parent.
You’re yearning to trust in yourself and your ability as a parent.
You’re craving dedicated time to reflect on what’s working and what isn’t as you parent your little one(s) through these formative early years.
You’re nervous about drifting apart or taking different approaches to parenting from your partner. You want to be on the same page as you parent together — or actively working towards being that way.
You don’t necessarily want to fall back onto the parenting approach you received as a child, but instead be intentional and deliberate about the way you parent.
You’re open to changing yourself, and opening yourself up to personal growth as a new parent. (In which case, you’ll love it).
You want to devote time and energy to your family (this is one of the most worthy things you can invest in, that will pay back dividends)
Steph K – Village Participant
“As a new parent there is such a steep learning curve and so many potential sources of information it’s easy to miss the forest for the trees. Tracey’s Parenting Village has taken a load off my shoulders by enabling me to learn from Tracey’s wisdom and also share with others who want to consciously parent in a reflective and intentional way. It is such a relief and a joy to embark on our journey as new parents, not alone, but instead in the company of a supportive community.”

I’ve Still Got Questions
No problem – check out the most frequently asked ones below…
What if I don't have time to do everything each month?
That’s ok! This isn’t a course. This is a community and resources… on demand.
You’ll get access to everything you need to parent with intent, tap into parenting knowledge without reading 1000 books, and be the best parent you can be in a no-pressure, loving and supportive environment.
So, don’t worry if you haven’t reviewed that month’s Parenting Growth Zone videos, you can still come to the Zoom calls, and it’s still going to inspire you! And if you just want to do the videos and not come to the zoom calls totally fine!
Each month isn’t connected so you can’t get behind. You can catch up or you don’t have to. The Village is jam-packed full of resources, so you can take what you need from it, when you need it.
We understand that parenting is nothing if not changeable! The Village is designed to be everything you need it to be.
Can I join with my partner?
Yes! In fact, we recommend it! One of the benefits of this membership is building a strong parenting partnership.
Because teamwork truly is the key to the stamina, creativity and growth that young children demand of us. And dedicating time to reflect and grow your parenting muscles together is one of the best investments you can make towards your family’s future.
This program will help you two to get on the same page when it comes to parenting, have each other’s back, work as a team, and appreciate one another’s unique contribution to your children.
You can join together at the flat joining fee of $25 per month.
What if I'm a single parent, can I still join?
Absolutely! This program is designed to support all parents, in all circumstances.
Am I committed for a certain period when I join?
No! This is a rolling membership that you can cancel anytime you wish. There is no pressure to stay. Just jump on the train and give it a try, dear ones.
I feel really confident in my parenting already — is this for me?
Absolutely! Even if you are feeling confident about your parenting, this is still for you, because you know your children are always changing – and always throwing new challenges into the mix! How supportive to have resources, support, and collaboration with your partner as you navigate the landscape of parenting.
If I cancel my membership, can I come back at a later date?
Yes! We will be taking parents into the program every 6 month, in January and July, so you would be able to come back and join us in the next enrollment.
Got more questions? Get in touch and ask away.
Marni – Village Participant
“I can’t recommend The Parenting Village highly enough. Tracey is simultaneously wise and light, delivering sage advice and (often raucous) laughter, even when the subject matter is heavy or recent life events have been challenging.
The people she attracts to her courses and communities are equally amazing. I’m often struck by the profound sense of solidarity and warmth I feel for these lovely people I’ve never met in person, such is Tracey’s skill at community building, engendering a safe, inclusive space and facilitating deep, yet gentle personal growth and reflection.
Regardless of whether we’ve laughed, commiserated or cried together, I always leave the Parenting Village feeling energised and supported. The benefits haven’t only been emotional, but practical too. After hearing from the community each fortnight we’ve implemented stacks of tweaks to our family life, improving dinner time rituals, building relationships with neighbours, curbing screen time and in the process, taming some feral toddler behaviour. Lockdown even became considerably more bearable by sharing it with our Village.
Being part of this community has without doubt improved my parenting journey and our family life in so many tangible and intangible ways. All gratitude to Tracey for the powerful, transformative work she does and the beautiful community she has built.”
