Welcome to Peaceful Parents, Confident Kids.
I’m Kate and like you, I am a parent striving to do the best for my children. I am hugely inspired by RIE parenting and I am committed to being respectful to my children as they make their way through the ups and downs of life.
I don’t always parent perfectly, but I always reflect upon, learn and ultimately grow from my mistakes, and you can too.
I recognise that this parenting road can be a lonely one so Peaceful Parents, Confident Kids aims to support parents on their peaceful and respectful parenting journeys. Travelling together we have significantly more chance of achieving success and becoming the parents we want to be, that our children need us to be.

When I began PPCK back in 2013, I hoped that by bringing awareness about the benefits of respectful parenting, more children across the world would be treated with respect and be supported to grow with confidence. Today, I am honoured that thousands of parents just like you have found inspiration from my writing and I am proud to be a regular contributor to Huffington Post Parents.
