DESCRIPTION

Aware Parenting is a philosophy of child-rearing that has the potential to change the world. Based on cutting-edge research and insights in child development, Aware Parenting questions most traditional assumptions about raising children, and proposes a new approach that can profoundly shift a parent's relationship with his or her child. Parents who follow this approach raise children who are bright, compassionate, competent, nonviolent, and drug free.

Aware Parenting is based on the work of Dr. Aletha Solter.
Dr. Aletha Solter has written books such as :

The Aware Baby,
Helping Young Children Flourish,
Tears and Tantrums,
Raising Drug-Free Kids,
Attachment Play.

Lael has been practising Aware Parenting for over 8 years and has been a certified Aware Parenting Instructor for over 2 years. Lael has had comprehensive experience working with mothers and babies who have experienced birth trauma or disconnection in early parenting.

In a session, Lael is able to explore any behavioural issues with your child, reactions you may be having to your child or in your relationship. Some topics that are covered are :

Sleep Issues
Biting, hitting, throwing - aggression in toddlers
Fear and trauma in children
Food issues
Attachment
Our relationship to mothering
Sexuality in motherhood
Boundaries and discipline
Crying and play therapy

Lael runs regular Aware Parenting groups in Melbourne as well as one on one sessions in person or via skype.


In the several years I have known Lael Stone, she has inspired me in so many ways. She is a true and gifted teacher who lives what she teaches. Her compassion, warmth, acceptance, and encouragement encourages a deep sense of emotional safety. In groups, her listening and her sharing of stories show me what is possible being a woman and a mother. In one-on-one sessions, she has helped me reach places of a deep sense of all-being-well. I encourage any woman who wants to know herself more, love herself more, and be the mother she wants to be, to work with Lael.

Thank you Lael for your beautiful insights about my daughter. You helped me see a completly different side to her behaviour and why it was happening. The change in her, since we have implemented these understandings have been phenomenal. It is like we have a new child. I was dreading waking up each morning with a toddler who was so difficult and now I only feel such joy and pleasure mothering her. It's been life changing for me as a mother and also for my relationship. Thank you again. I am beyond grateful.
