The Happy Child is your roadmap to creating a nourishing home life to support

happy children

Does life with little children feel chaotic and you are struggling to find flow and ease in your days?

You’re all too familiar with falling into the busyness of everyday and you desperately want to create a home life that deeply supports your growing children.

Do you want to create more calm + connection with your children and less rush?

Would you love to introduce nourishing rituals and rhythms into your home life, but you’re not sure

where to begin?

If you’re nodding your head right now, then you’re in the right place, because I created the Happy Child for mamas (and papas) just like you.

The practical lessons in the Happy Child are the foundations that I return to time and time again to infuse my children’s days with ritual, comfort and a little magic. 

You will feel Calm + Clear on where you should focus your attention to create strong home rhythms to support your WHOLE child - mind, body + soul.

Hi, I’m Natalie

as a Mama of 3 children, I know first hand how challenging creating a happy home that nourishes our children can be.

I've spent 13 years juggling a blended family, and the last year as a single mum to my three children. And let me be fully transparent and tell you I am no perfect mama. I have good days and I have not so good days. But day after day I am committed to being the best version of me and the most conscious parent I can be for my kids.

Over the years through early childhood studies, research and plenty of trial and error I’ve learnt a thing or two about essential home rhythms for little children.  

The Happy Child will give you the practical steps + motivation you need to create nourishing home rhythms & rituals and I’d be honoured to guide you through the essential foundations. 

I created this course for

Mamas who are ...
  • Seeking more FLOW at home with little children
  • Excited to infuse more MAGIC + MINDFULNESS into their homelife
  • Ready to RE-INVIGORATE their commitment to cherish child caring
  • Needing to RESTORE balance at home for their children’s wellbeing (and their own!)

"Helped us to honour our children's childhood and make even the ordinary a little bit special."

"My husband and I loved working through the Happy Child. So many things have made a lasting impact on our family life especially the daily/ weekly rhythm cards - we still have them on our fridge and refer to them daily. But mostly it helped us to infuse our days with slow and gentle rhythms and rituals that helped us to honour our children’s childhood and make even the ordinary a little bit special. Thank you!"

Emily Jordan

"Natalie is truly talented and inspiring in what she is bringing to young families around the globe…

... In a time when children have to all too often fit in with the lives of the adults around them, Natalie offers parents reminders to bring the focus back to the needs of our young children, and the importance of the home for them".

Kristy, Mama & Steiner Early Childhood Teacher

"As a Mama of three it's easy to fall into stale old patterns that move our family along from one day to another yet don't nourish and enrich our lives."

...The Happy Child brought me back to my deep belief in the power of homemaking. Full of real, practical tools coupled with Nat's beautifully gentle and encouraging way, this course allowed my husband and I to reflect on the flow of our days and implement lasting change for ourselves and our family. The Happy Child has been such a gift in our world and we are so thankful for Nat's guidance."

Steph, mama of 3, Founder of Green and Growing Things

"...amazing

Your course and resources are amazing, I was so pleased to see a reference to Magda Gerber! I haven’t found many people who are familiar with RIE.

"THE COURSE GAVE ME LOTS OF IDEAS!

"I loved learning about the importance of creating a ritual around meal time. The course gave me lots of ideas! I sewed each family member a placemat with their name on it, I printed up the mealtime blessing cards and we all sit together as a family for mealtimes. 

My kids now take ownership of setting the table and take their placemats VERY seriously!!! Dinner is so much more than just eating, we chat, laugh and listen to music. Thank you for the beautiful course and ideas!! Its bought alot of joy to my house and I regularly check back in for a refresh."

You will learn practical ways to begin infusing rhythm into your home and with your child.

Nourishing Mealtimes

This module is your opportunity to set yourself up for success at mealtimes with little ones. We will look at the importance of nourishing mealtimes for our children and how we can create rituals and rhythms to support our children at this often challenging time of the day. You will learn my two golden rules when it comes to simplifying meals in your home and I will help you to feel energised to begin making mealtimes a beautiful time of connection and cosiness.

ecourse9

Soothing Sleep

We all know the importance of sleep, but actually getting our child to sleep is a whole other story. In this module we will look at why you may be experiencing challenges with your child at bedtime and how to approach these. We will consider the importance of storytelling and get clear on age appropriate stories and the wonder of fairy tales for your child.  You will be inspired by the various bedtime rituals and rhythms that you can begin implementing right away with your child.

Creating Space for Play

In this module we get back to basics and look at how we can create a nourishing play space for our child without all the bells and whistles that we are often led to believe that we need. We will consider the essentials for indoor and outdoor play spaces, as well as getting clear on the important role we play in facilitating self initiated and self directed play by our child.

ecourse10

Creating a Cosy Home + Mindful Spaces for Children

In our final module we will consider the importance of creating a supportive home environment for our child. We will look beyond the physical space and explore ways that we can energise your home so that it offers a true sanctuary for our family. You will also get clear on how to create mindful and intentional spaces for our children that not only support them but assist us in our parenting.

"Helped me create an atmosphere of love, warmth and calm in our home that I was craving."

"I have loved the happy child e- course and got so much out of it. With 3 small children and one on the way, it’s been a blessing to be able to take it at my own pace. 

The biggest help in our home has been around rhythm and mealtimes. There is much more reverence around the dinner table now with the mealtime blessing cards and lighting of a candle. We’re using the daily rhythm pictures and I’ve simplified the children’s toys and books and will be much more intentional about what we bring into the home.

Apart from ALL the useful tips, your course has really helped me create an atmosphere of love, warmth and calm in our home that I was craving. Thank you for all that you offer."

"The Happy Child helped me reconnect with the fact that our presence is the most important thing we can offer our children. Just to be present with my children!"

"I remember a moment after the course where I was knitting and my children happily playing, such a fantastic feeling! I also really connected with the fact that children love simplicity and that helped me consider where I could simplify their day - It was also a great relief to learn this! I really love what you do, all the energy around it: thank you so much."

Cecile, Mama of 2

"The Happy Child and all your creative courses really, really inspired me to bring more magic, rhythm, consciousness, meditation and creativity to my parenting."

"All the beautiful pictures in your course are so motivating to help me transform our home rhythms + environments into something warm, nourishing and magical for all. I love how you combine anthroposophy with conscious parenting, meditation and the most beautiful creations.

Finding your instagram profile was one of the things that helped me get back on my spiritual path again and using it all in being a parent. I love your work, thanks again for sharing such beautiful gifts to the world. "

Lisette, Mama of 2

"ONE OF MY FAVOURITE TAKE AWAYS FROM THE COURSE..."

"...was making the ordinary (boring) routines into something special. We've gone from eating meals being just something we do, to making mealtimes an event! Setting the table, lighting a candle, ensuring the table is clear and looks beautiful, and saying a verse. We all sit and eat together with no screens allowed. It feels like we are having a special event 3 times a day!

Apart from ALL the useful tips, your course has really helped me create an atmosphere of love, warmth and calm in our home that I was craving. Thank you for all that you offer."

Emmy - Mama of 2

"IT HAS BEEN ENORMOUSLY HELPFUL TO  ME AND MY SON."

I had been pretty avidly following standard Dr. Sears-style attachment parenting and was getting exhausted. But reading about the importance of routine and boundaries as well as caring for myself helped me adjust to a more sustainable style of parenting. It also led me to explore gentle parenting as a lifelong commitment. That has been both healing to me as I process my childhood and has brought so much joy and connection to my relationship with my son. So I honestly can't thank you enough. It has absolutely changed my life.
