I have over 10 years experience teaching psychology to teenagers. I have worked at four different schools in the UK, both in the independent and state sector. I also deliver mindfulness workshops to teenagers.
Would you like me to speak at an event?
I have talked on a wide range of topics to professionals, parents and community groups. I use my practical experience of parenting and teaching to make my talks enjoyable and accessible. You can contact me at fayecarlisle at gmail dot com.
Why did I start this blog?
There are so many different opinions and controversies regarding parenting and educating children, which I wanted to address.
Many parenting books offer conflicting advice. At one extreme there are attachment parenting books, which suggest that parents should carry their baby around at all times and co-sleep. At the other extreme, there are books telling parents to get their baby into a routine straight away.
My blog aims to empower parents to make their own decisions armed with some understanding of the research on parenting issues.
