Help raise your daughters as women with self-esteem and the self confidence to take on the world!
“The distress of young girls is clearly visible in the rising rates of mental health problems, binge drinking, eating disorders and the rampant growth of bullying in our schools. Girls are now expected to be all things – attractive, thin, good, successful, happy, kind, loving, self-sufficient; perfect, in other words, within an imperfect world that still does not give women the equal status they deserve.” – Kate Figes, The Telegraph
Whatever your parenting concern, worry or issue is with your daughter, there ARE solutions and support for you.

- You want to safeguard your kids from negative influences, without being overprotective
- You want to teach your children to manage their fears and deal with anxieties
- You want to connect with other parents experiencing the same challenges as you are
- When it comes to seeking advice, you find ‘googling’ frustrating, time consuming and unhelpful
- You want to learn from parenting experts you can trust
- You’re ready to take positive action to strengthen your relationship with your family, starting right now
My name is Judith-Rose Max, your host for “How To Communicate With Your Daughters About Anything And Everything” 2013 Telesummit.” I’m your coach for effective and informed parenting and I am here to guide you through an educational and enlightening journey to more open and effective communication with your daughters. As the mother of three girls, I’ve been through plenty of my own challenges. What helped me to stop the yelling and start really communicating was taking the time to understand why communication breaks down, and then applying practical tips and techniques that provided real solutions to my specific parenting problems. This helped me to feel empowered and more confident as a parent. My parenting communication journey has taught me that I simply can’t get it right every time, and there are always more lessons to be learnt! I created Happy Parenting to encourage other parents to benefit from tools, tips and lessons designed to improve the relationships they have with themselves and their children. We work with mums and dads struggling with the challenges of parenting, and open their eyes to practical solutions that can be applied to their everyday lives.
Knowledge is empowerment.
This is your chance to enrich your understanding through the experiences, wisdom and advice of some of the world’s foremost parenting experts. Each of our speakers has been hand-picked for their enthusiasm and dedication to bringing real solutions to parents worldwide.
