She is the creator and founder of The Parent Lounge a teachable online platform helping parents be the parents they want to be. Kerry is passionate about parent education that empowers parents to transform the wellbeing of their child and themselves. She frequently visits professional child-care environments, schools and classrooms to educate, inspire, empower and coach.
Kerry is a behavioural specialist and mentor in supporting parents and educators to choose a guidance and connection based approach to behaviour with the outcome of nurturing genuine self-esteem and growth mindset. Her passion is to encourage evidenced based practices and approaches. This challenges a punitive approach to children’s behaviour and replaces it with her actionable and sustainable guidance approach model that supports families and classes to thrive. She encourages parents and teachers to trust themselves and helps them to find their unique blueprint. Her work around family and classroom dynamics and culture is second to none.
Kerry’s vision is to build a community of like minded people who want to positively impact the world by focusing on how we raise, nurture, teach, guide and encourage children. She enacts her vision by teaching how to work alongside children and establish authentic connection with others.
