I'm Judith-Rose Max, the founder of Happy Parenting and a mother of three fantastic girls.Despite having a natural instinct for parenting, there were times when I struggled and there were those distressing times when I felt myself turning into the parent I’d vowed never to be! I searched for the right resources and while I found some, it was hard to access everything I wanted and needed in one place. I decided to go to the experts in their field and I now work in conjunction with the experts to deliver practical parenting tips and traps. Happy Parenting empowers mums and dads with easily accessible solutions to everyday parenting challenges. You can find the experts, parenting resources and Happy Kids at www.happyparenting.com.au

The playground is a place to learn one of life’s greatest lessons

The playground is a place to learn one of life’s greatest lessons

Watching children interact, connect and play together is truly inspiring. But what to do when there is a playground bust up?  There is a key lesson to help our kids on the playground and in life. We can teach our children to play nicely, share their toys, be kind to others, but who wants their child to be a pushover? Not me and certainly not when he grows up.   You’re chatting with your friend and responsibly keeping your child safely in your sights when you hear him say “Stop I don’t like it” just the way you taught him.  ...

Kids not getting along with others? 10 ways to encourage them to treat everyone better.

Kids not getting along with others?  10 ways to encourage them to treat everyone better.

I like to think I am one of those people who treats everyone with the same respect and care irrespective their beliefs, preferences, choices, backgrounds or looks.  And more than this, I like to think I am modelling this behavior so that my children will do the same. The question I ask myself is, “Am I modelling these behaviors? And how successful am I in instilling these values? If you could have a camcorder on your shoulder and review your daily behaviors would you stand tall with pride or want to curl up from embarrassment? Our children observe us every ...

Want to hear G-d laugh, announce your plans

A personal account by Judith-Rose Max   In November, the day after World Diabetes Day, my world took an extreme knock.  My gorgeous 2-year old daughter was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic, dependent on insulin and in need of continuous daily monitoring and multiple insulin injections. My horror was incomprehensible.  The risks of the disease are extensive and I know them all, my husband was diagnosed when he was 6.  I am extremely grateful that her illness is well understood and that with proper management my baby will live a full and meaningful life. Life seems to bring challenges ...
