Why we need a village…

The challenges parents face at home are always reflected at school and the wider community – even if it doesn’t translate literally.

The anxious child caught in a whirlwind of internal chatter struggles to fall asleep at home and lacks confidence with friendships at school. The conscientious people-pleaser at school returns home with pent-up rage, which is only released in the safety of their home. The rule-breaking teen causing havoc in the community feels like a square peg in a round-hole at school and riddled with self-doubt at home.

The behaviour may present differently but the root cause is the same.

The solution??

A village working together, in unison, on the things which matter, with one voice.

Join Dr Maryhan, host of the globally successful parenting podcast How Not To Screw Up Your Kids, for her inaugural conference. Bringing together the best village to help you raise resilient adults.

Raising resilient adults is a more difficult proposition now than it has ever been!

Yet some of the core ingredients haven’t changed… 

It still takes a village – now more so than ever before.

Children are in crisis with rising numbers struggling with their mental health, permanently attached to their devices, lacking confidence, finding it difficult to regulate those big emotions, and fearful of failure should they attempt anything out of their usual mode of operating.

How do we raise children to have the courage to stand up for themselves, to push themselves out of their comfort zone, to worry less, to put their devices down for long enough to have a conversation, and step into their true magnificence???

Collectively the time has come for us to work together to raise the next generation equipped, tooled up and ready to take on anything the world throws at them.

This doesn’t mean they won’t have tears, fears, and dramas – we all do – but they will tackle them knowing they have a whole community behind them, holding a safe space and rooting for them. Always there to cheerlead and champion them whenever they wobble.

The line up so far...

Speakers at the forefront in their field sharing real-world practical tools you can take away and implement. It’s not pie in the sky idealism it’s real-world useable techniques which work!

Kate Percy

When Kate experienced how making better food choices completely revolutionised how she and her family felt, she embarked on a mission to help others discover that magic link between what you eat, and your mental and physical wellbeing. It’s what Kate calls #Enerjoy! Great Taste, Nourishment and Better Outcomes.

Kate’s #Enerjoy! philosophy began with her first book, Go Faster Food (Penguin 2009), after changing the family’s diet to help her husband train for the New York marathon. Now a multiple marathon runner herself, Sunday Times Maserati game-changing entrepreneur, fitness food expert for health & wellbeing magazines like 220 Triathlon and Women’s Running, Kate has developed healthy eating programmes for the BBC, Virgin Sport and United Learning Academy Group. Her latest best-selling book, Go Faster Food for your Active Family, translates good nutrition into practical, delicious recipes for busy families.

In 2018, Kate launched her Go Bites energy balls, and has since gained the coveted accolade of ‘Great Taste Producer’. Great for on-the-go, before and after exercise or as a mid-morning boost of #Enerjoy! with a cup of tea or coffee, they are made with dried fruit, nuts and oats and hand rolled in zingy freeze-dried fruit, nuts or coconut.

Kate’s exciting “Cook5, Move5” campaign challenges, inspires and enables children to cook at least 5 healthy meals from scratch and understand the link between good food, physical and mental wellbeing. Kate is in the process of forming a charity to deliver this. 

“Food is so much more than ‘healthy’ or ‘nutrition’, however. It’s the stuff of life, it’s about enjoyment, it unites. Cooking together, sitting down ‘breaking bread’, discussing the day, your feelings, arguing your point…there’s nothing better!”
