‘”I haven’t felt my best ‘parent’ self with my 2nd child due to her wild (WILD) tantrums so it felt so great to work some of this through with Rachel. She’s so easy to chat with and non-judgmental. Rachel provided very simple, clear, really practical advice and strategies that helped me remove a lot of my emotions and me focus on my child and what she needed during those extra big ‘outbursts’ (even at 4am!)”

Raising your child is arguably one of the most important jobs we do, yet we are often the least prepared for it.
Think of all the training you have done for your other jobs.
Would do any other job just winging it and learning as you go?
When you think about it, it’s no wonder we feel overwhelmed some days. They say kids don’t come with a manual but the 108 page work book included in the course comes pretty close.
“My own upbringing was in no way ideal and before having children I was determined to be the kind of parent I wish I had. Fast forward to raising my 8 year old, I found myself angry, overwhelmed and worst of all repeating many of the things that scarred me from my own childhood. It was like I was challenging my own mother no matter my best intentions. Doing this course gave me another way, it gave me a way to break the cycle”
Frequently asked questions
What equipment do I need to attend this course?
The minimum is a smart phone the the zoom app downloaded. However, it will be a more enjoyable experience the use a laptop or a desktop computer that has a web camera.
If you are not familiar with zoom. I am more that happy to run a practice session prior to the event
Zoom is really user friendly, even if you are not techy.
What age children is this course for?
Positive Discipline is effective for all age children, in fact the lessons you learn will help your relationships with all people including adults. However, the activities and framework in this particular course is aimed for parents of children ages 4-12.
My child has ASD/ADHD will this course be suitable?
YES! Positive Parenting focuses on understanding, connection, respect, routine, and kind but firm boundaries. All of these things are a great benefit to all children but especially children with additional needs. Also as parents when we have better understanding, tools and support it allow us to be the calm in our children’s often challenging storm.
Personally I have a special interest in ADHD, highly emotional and strong-willed children as I am raising one myself and it have been an integral part of my studies.
Will you be running the course at other times/days, this time doesn't work for me?
Yes the plan would be to run different times/days to accommodate others. Please feel free to contact me and we can discuss what other options I have or are planning. There is also a recording available if you feel you can attend most of the sessions but not all. If you are not sure… lets talk.
My partner is not onboard with this style of parenting, is it worth doing the course?
YES! While in a perfect world we would love to be on the same page with our parenting partner, the simple fact is that more often than not we aren’t. This framework is not an all or none system, it actually focuses on respectful communication for ALL and often can help bring couples together even if they have a difference of opinion.
Whether you are parenting under the same roof with a partner, co-parenting separately, parallel parenting or completely flying solo – this course will help.

Sometimes our most in-need families have the least access to support, particularly families of neurodiverse children that have so many additional challenges to face both emotionally and financially. I understand that Psychologists, OT, Speech, and other specialist therapies stretch families to, and beyond their limits, especially those that are not eligible for NDIS support. If you are committed to making some positive changes in your family but the course fee outside your budget please contact me.
Please Note the Mission Connect Course Scholarship is capped at 1 placement per course.
“Adapting to parenting with Positive Discipline has been life changing for my family. It has been especially helpful for dealing with my youngest child that has ADHD. It has been amazing how a few changes made such a different to calmness and happiness of our whole family.”
Hi, my name is Rachel and I am the Mum behind Mission Magnets and Mission Connect.
I created my very first set of magnets as a way to stop my morning routine of nagging and yelling at my children. This lead me on journey of researching child behaviour, psychology and brain development with a special interest in ADHD and emotional regulation. What began as self help now has led me to become a certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator with a desire to help other parents experience the shifts I have been able to achieve.
I managed to turn my family life around and I’m passionate about helping you do the same. My girls are now 11/13 and are entering a notoriously tricky stage of parenting but I am proud to say our family has never been so connected and we all feel ready to deal with any struggles life throws at us. We are a family team.
I developed Mission Connect to support parents of young children to strengthen their family connection and use positive parenting strategies incorporating visual routines. Allowing them to have a calm, happy home while raising independent, capable and resilient children.
Mission Connect is Family Connection Membership which is currently closed for enrollments, but I would like to give you something now to help you towards your journey to a calm and happy home
