F is for Fun

Fun and laughter – infants start to respond to being tickled around the age of six to eight weeks, if we as Mom, Dad or caregiver gently tickles baby he will laugh and then we laugh and then they laugh providing a deep bonding experience.

Neuroscience research shows that the brain prepares to start laughing as soon as we hear laughter. We are wired to respond to other fellow human being’s laughter – which is why we talk about laughter being “infectious”. Laughter produces endorphins in our brain that make us feel immediately better and relieved afterward. Haven’t we all had a good long laugh, where your stomach begins to ache, and you feel like a million bucks?

Laughter is good for your physical and mental health

If we interact with each other with laughter and a lightness of emotion, we feel happier and share in the fun of the moment. What we need to understand is that this is not fun at others, but rather fun with eachother. A shared experience.

As a practitioner I have become increasingly aware that work-life balance has become a critical issue, particularly in an age in which the demands of work are often at odds with home and family life. I am passionate about family life, it is the catalyst for every other relationship we have - in every other area of life, we expect to study, get a qualification, try something on appro , we want to feel in control - however it is the one area of life, that none of the above applies - Babies do not arrive with a parenting manual! It is my privilege as a Parent and Life Coach, to partner with you as you take hold of the challenges you are facing in your family, in your life and work with you , supporting you to achieve the decisions and outcomes you are choosing for your family and for your life. It is my job, to keep you on track, to cheer you on, when the "going gets tough". Through coaching, understanding of yourself and your child, and his or her phase of development will enable you to consciously develop a parenting style that will benefit you and your family.
