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.
