The Connective Parenting Hub

The Connective Parenting Hub  has been designed to help you build a better connection with your children. 

I don’t want you to struggle, I don’t want you to be alone on this one.

The Connective Parenting Hub is an incredibly inclusive, warm, nonjudgemental environment where you can get the help, support and advice that you need, without ever being judged.  Whether you are an adopter or a birth parent/grandparent or carer you’re more than welcome here. 

We’ll help you celebrate your successes, support you through the difficult times and help make being a parent a more enjoyable and fun experience. If it feels anything less than that right now then you that might just be the sign you need to be involved. 

 After all that’s what parenting is all about isn’t it?

 You don’t need to be struggling or at crisis point to benefit from the hub, We can offer every parent support and useful resources to allow them to parent confidentially and to support their children to thrive.

The hub has at its heart the principles of Non-Violent Resistance (NVR).  NVR focuses on developing the relationship between the parent and the child, by raising your presence as the parent. 

NVR isn’t only about dealing with violence, it can be used for any form of conflict however minor.  In fact, there doesn’t need to be any conflict before you start using this approach, it’s about creating a strong bond with your child.

You’ll be part of a supportive community of parents and get access to expert help and advice on a variety of different topics.

I have also invited some of the other incredible parenting experts in my network to become regular contributors to the hub.

Monthly Coffee and Chat

Each month we meet for a coffee and chat.  

The meeting is online, via video call, so you don’t need to worry about trying to get out or arranging childcare.

Joining the call is very easy (even for technophobes) and you don’t have to have the video on if you don’t want to.

It’s a great opportunity to meet other members of the hub, have a chat and support each other.

Sarah is also there to answer any questions and provide support and advice.

PS. It’s not always coffee parents are drinking wink

No more trying to deal with all of the issues in your world all at once.  When we feel like we are on the battle fields it can be really hard to concentrate on where to focus.  Allowing the parent clarity of focus, being able to be on the same page as other adults and the child therefore has consistency.

Meet the Expert’ – how does it work?

 

We have wonderful experts on a whole range of different topics (all connected to parenting in some way) to come and talk to you and share resources about their area of expertise.   Each person will be the expert for 1 month and we will have 1 call when you’ll hear from them live and be able to ask any questions you have.

Over the course of a year there will be at least 6 different experts in different fields.  All of them work in a way that aligns with the principles of NVR.

Here’s an idea of the areas the experts cover: sleep, food issues, attachment difficulties, sensory needs and emotional regulation.

All of the calls are recorded, so if you miss one you can watch it at any time. When you join the hub you’ll have access to all of the previous expert sessions.

All this for £15 a month, or just 50p a day.

You can get access to the hub and the resources right now!  Just click the link on the right (might be below on your phone) and it will take you through to the learning platform where you’ll register and set up your subscription.

I love the hub. There is always someone there with kind, helpful words. You can share your bad days and your positive moments and someone is always there without judgement. Then there are live sessions every week and teaches, RTT and lots of resources. Sarah always comes back to you with her fantastic knowledge and support. I would highly recommend the hub

FAQs

  • Does this information you’re sharing work for everyone?
    • Yes, everything that is shared within the group, whether about NVR or from one of the other experts is based on relationships and our brain’s natural way of working, so it works for everyone, including those with special needs. Membership of the hub is by monthly subscription.  The monthly subscription is taken automatically until you cancel your membership.
  • Is the hub only for parents at crisis point?
    • The earlier we start to resolve any difficulties you’re having connecting with your children the quicker we can change it. By using NVR, you will be creating a strong bond that will help to reduce potential future issues.
  • How does the membership work?
    • Membership of the hub is by monthly subscription.  The monthly subscription is taken automatically until you cancel your membership.
  •  Can I cancel at anytime?
    • Yes, you can cancel your membership at any time, the contract is on a monthly basis.  To cancel your membership, log into the hub and cancel it directly from your account. Once you leave you will no longer be able to access the resources or receive discounts on courses or events.  Should you wish to rejoin at any time you are welcome to, however any previous discount will be lost.
  • How quickly will I see changes in my child if I use the information and resources in the hub?
    • This is a difficult one to answer because there are so many variables.  Some parents see changes very quickly for others it takes time.  Persistence is the key to seeing change.
  • Isn’t NVR just for violent children?
    • This is one of the myths about NVR.  It is often used in situations where there is violence but it’s a relationship based approach and works in all situations, not just parenting.  If you want to build a strong relationship with your child and help them to develop emotional intelligence then NVR will without a doubt help.
I love the Hub. The FB group is the most important part for me. Although I have only met a couple of people in the group in real life, they feel like the best, most supportive, non-judgemental group of friends anyone could have.
The on-line material is really helpful but it is the day-to-day sharing that I love.
I would recommend the Hub to anyone struggling with their child.

The connective parenting group is a brilliant way to connect to people with whom you may never meet, but share some common goals. The Hub takes it a step further, it is as if we have our own advisor on tap. The membership is worth it for me simply for the RTT and resources, but the online training, Zoom, teaches and expert sessions make it even better. Add to that the discounted conference tickets and it really is worth joining.

Over the years in a work capacity I have attended many seminars . I have often left feeling inspired, then a situation arises and I’m left thinking “but what should I do in this situation? “I have often wished the trainer had been accessible in order that I could ask ..” how does this work in this situation for me now?” Being in the hub has given me just that…help and advice ongoing when I need it. It is the ongoing support to reflect and grow that makes this work. NVR is a journey. The support , not just from Sarah but from the other members is second to non.

All this for just £15 a month.

Who is Sarah Fisher?

I’m a single adoptive mum, passionate about helping other families experiencing difficulties.  I adopted a gorgeous seven year old little boy and together we have been on a journey of discovery.  It hasn’t been an easy road, more of a roller coaster, but I’m so glad I chose to adopt and I wouldn’t turn the clock back for anything.

During my journey I’ve learnt to support my son with his anxiety and have stopped most of his unacceptable behaviours.  These weren’t because he was an unduly aggressive child (although he displayed several aggressive tendencies) but he was very distressed, due to past trauma, which evidenced itself in his aggressive and anxious behaviour and his inability to deal with his emotions.  Through the use of Non Violent Resistance (NVR) our family dynamic has changed and my son is now more confident and understands how to appropriately express his emotions.  It hasn’t been an easy or smooth road, but we’ve come through it and I’m passionate about helping other families do the same. 

As an experienced NVR coach and practitioner I support parents who are struggling to transform their families live and create a happy family home.
