“The most valuable lesson we can teach our children is how to be happy and confident with who they are. Everything else falls into place when they truly believe in themselves.”

Parenting is tough, full stop. Just when you think you’ve nailed it, they go through a new phase, and you feel like you have no idea how to parent this new child or teen!

Whether it’s making new friends, transitioning between schools, or handling peer pressure, our children face change all the time and how we parent needs to adapt and flex to suit these changing needs.

Everyone talks about the baby years – how to get them to sleep, feeding them, teething and potty training, but what about as they grow up? Back-chat, friendship issues, resilience, confidence issues, family dynamics, exam pressure, and managing screen-time. These are all areas your child needs you as their parent – whether they realise it or not!

How Not To Screw Up Your Kids is all about striving to be the best parent we can be. It’s a community of like-minded parents who are being honest about their parenting journey. They don’t have all the answers, yet they’re willing to work through each stage and transition to find a solution which worls best for their family.

It’s about practical advice to manage those day-to-day ups and downs as well as guidance on how best to tackle up and coming changes. So you feel in control, rather than on the back foot.

A parenting expert you can trust!

Dr Maryhan is an experienced psychologist & parenting expert, and mother of two. For over 20 years she has been supporting children, teens and young adults struggling with low confidence and anxiety.

“I believe children are an adult home under constrcution. Our role as their parent is to provide the scaffolding for their build. We adapt and change as their building rises, always there to catch any falling masonry or woodwork, but never trying to change the essence or spirit of the build. We don’t get to inhabit our children’s adult home, they do.

By focusing our parenting on the adult we want to raise our child to become, rather than the child we currently have, we are able to raise those confident, resilient, happy, sucessful adults we all want.”


“Maryhan is the font of parenting knowledge. She provides oodles of non-judgemental, practical and realistic advice, based on years of experience of working with parents and children, in an upbeat and positive manner”

My job within How Not To Screw Up Your Kids community is to teach you practical tools and strategies,  which work for your unique family set-up; whatever the stage your children are at. Once you have those tools and strategies those day-to-day parenting challenges become easier to navigate.
