Who is this course for?

This course is for parents of one or more children, from toddlers to teens, who want to shift from power struggles, frustration and overwhelm to more connection, ease and joy in parenting, as well as feel confident handling the challenges of everyday family life whilst building a strong relationship with their child.

We’ll explore connecting and communicating with children as partners in our relationships, in non-coercive, collaborative ways, as well as addressing the patterns and beliefs that get in the way of being the parent you want to be.

I can totally recommend the Connect with Your Child course. Karen has a profound knowledge and explains everything in an easy way. I made a big step forward. I am more confident, all the info was very, very helpful. Thank you!


I got a lot of new ideas on how to better connect with my child. The course also explained the difference between the old way of raising children with punishment and a new way with connection. It was mind blowing!

I would definitely recommend the Connect with Your Child course. It will bring peace and understanding to your parenting. I loved the explanations Karen used while describing the behaviour interpretation. She also helped to change my mindset about parenting in a very practical way. She is able to explain the topic easily and understandably within the context of everyday situations.

Karen is providing digestible and concise content, and makes it personal with examples from her own experience. The task sheets are so valuable because you find out lots about your own struggles and triggers. She gives you tools to work with your own anger and how to fulfil your unmet needs so you can be there to support your children as good as possible. I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to communicate without judgement and to make this world a friendlier place.

Hi, I’m Karen.

For over 20 years human connection, relationships, communication, learning and personal development have been the focus of my work. I’m a philologist, linguist, mum and twin mum of three teens born less than two years apart.

I advocate peaceful and respectful parenting, family relationships grounded in connection, trust, consent, empathy and collaboration, and support parents around the world on their individual paths to more deeply-connected relationships with their kids. I love seeing the difference rethinking parenting and choosing connection makes to all our lives.

I was born and grew up in the southeast of England, and now live in Germany with my husband, our three children and two cats. Our children are growing up with two languages, different countries and cultures.
