The Play Collective - Tween & Teen

Take The Struggle Out Of Play With Your Tween / Teen

Discover how to connect now your child is older and facing more challenges.

Receive the support you need to be able to navigate these transformative years with more lightness, ease and fun!

"Helena & Chiara are such an incredible team, full of empathy and ideas!"

The teen years have the potential to be joyous and harmonious. They are the vital bridge between childhood and adulthood but they can also feel daunting. 

If you're struggling and worrying about your child now that they're older, we want you to know that you CAN help them, you CAN have fun together again and you CAN prepare them for 'the real world'. 

Playfulness is the key - the magic code that can improve every aspect of the teen era.

Most of us know this intuitively but are stumped when it comes to implementing the concept. Play can feel like another burden to add to the heap. 

Let us show you a new way

- a path less trodden that will help you fall in love with playfulness.

Playfulness with help your child with the challenges they need to deal in the world: both online and IRL.

It's what builds confidence, reduces anxiety, diffuses aggression, explore edgy topics and re-connects them with you. 

We know it's not always easy to be playful

Especially when you're needing to help them deal with serious topics such as anxiety, aggression, screens, sex, body image, alcohol and drugs.

But ALL of these can be navigated much easier when you have addressed and healed your own teenage hurts, and  received support to help you with what's going on for you both right now.

Play is the 'Super Protective Factor' you've been looking for

THE PLAY COLLECTIVE is a 4 week program designed to give you the maximum support with your parenting.  You'll receive information and insights inside the course AND, most importantly, personalised coaching & counselling for you.  

What We'll Cover Each Week

This week we begin by establishing how play evolves as your child(ren) age.

We cover the practical side of Play and show you how Our approach differs from the current advice in the Attachment Play world .

Many parents are totally stumped at the idea of connecting playfully with their teens so we will guide you with the step by step process and inspiration to warm you up.

Dive deeper into why you find play hard and resist it.

Often it’s because it feels daunting, you may stop yourself from connecting more lightly because you think it will either lead to explosive teens or that you miss teachable moments. 

Let’s get down and dirty to excavate your blocks around play.

We cover more serious issues like anxiety , aggression, sex and alcohol because we want to show you how play can help you navigate these topics more effectively.

We'll share real life scenarios and walk you through a more emotionally intelligent approach that leads to connection rather than more strife

This week we tie up loose ends to ensure you have the confidence to implement what you’ve learnt. 

We cover deeper philosophies about this novel approach to being with our older kids, remind you of the importance of your mental well-being and give you tools to best support you & your family.

Have the relationship you've always wanted with your tween / teen  

Praise for The Play Collective

(for younger children)

This course is AMAZING! It's the most practical, hands-on, supportive parenting course I've done.

Chiara promised I'd end the course more playful, which I seriously doubted, but she was right.  

I feel more equipped to deal with difficult behaviour - I'm able to bring in playfulness to increase our connection much more easily than before.

Karen (Aus) 

There is a lot more playfulness and fun in our house 

I often felt overwhelmed and frustrated with trying to connect and play. It was another thing on my to do list and I was resentful about it.

Through Chiara and Helena’s unconditional support and listening I was able to find my own blocks to play and unpack my rigidity. 

Now I have a new approach to play and being playful with my kids.

About Chiara Rossetti

I’m an Aware Parenting Instructor and mum of two teenagers - a 16 year old lad and a 19 year old lass. I have homeschooled them as a sole parent since day one (madness!?).  I discovered Aware Parenting when my boy was 4 months old and I truly love every aspect of the model but find Play to be one of the most interesting and magical aspect of it.  

I love being a mum of teenagers and dispelling all the myths about these years being painful - they don’t have to be.

I am also a Certified Field Center Facilitator which is a type of coaching / counselling that I find so powerful.

Essentially, I love any modality that can help people get unstuck from painful parts of their lives so they can live from a more authentic and cantered place.

About Helena Mooney

I'm an Aware Parenting Instructor and a Hand in Hand Parenting by Connection Instructor, with over 13 years'

I wasn't a naturally playful mum but I've learned how to play and it's been one of the greatest gifts I've given my children, aged 14 & 8.

How I play has evolved as they have got older.  I no longer play the same games with my daughter as I did when she was a little girl, but the principles of connection, playfulness and fun still guide me.

I'm having a better relationship with my teenager than I thought was possible.

I'm so grateful I've learned this way of being with my kids and it's now my passion to share this with you and support you with your family.

We're all about making things very practical, as well as fun, so the simple strategies will easily fit in your busy schedule.
