Cassandra Treges – Child Psychologist based in South Africa and Founder of Nanny Knows 101

Cassandra Treges started working with kids as a nanny and pursued her passion about child behavior and development by studying Child Psychology. She keeps herself up to date with the current parenting, behavioural, brain and child development research and information. She is also a homeschooling mother and has been helping parents to communicate better with their children through home visits, online consultation and mini courses. Her mission is to help parents address behavioural issues in homes as early as possible, so that they can better communicate with their children, that children are better understood, and that a balance can be obtained so that both parents and children develop to their full potential. In the podcast, Cassandra shared some anecdotes about her son, why she likes conscious parenting, how to make children cooperate through connection and many other helpful parenting tips that you can’t miss.

She also discussed why punishments don’t work and how to use reward charts effectively.
