Our Mission

To bring about lifelong behaviour change for all ages by managing challenging behaviour – both locally and globally, through the provision of easy to do training events and resources. We follow the “affect the few, to affect the many” principle in the training of key influencers, such as teachers, school leaders, community and organisational leaders.  

As part of Our Mission, here are some goals we would like to achieve:

A recent UNICEF report showed that 60% of children and young people aged 4-14 globally are regularly affected by corporal punishment.  We want to help to reduce the number of children being affected in this way.
Many fathers are not traditionally involved in community-based courses and yet we know that fathers prefer to learn parenting skills online. We want to see more fathers involved in parenting education by pitching events to them that take into account their preferred learning styles.
In the western world, if a child is diagnosed with conduct disorder by the time they are in later childhood, there is a nearly 80% chance that that child will be in trouble with the legal system by the time they are 21. We want to help reduce that frequency.
School leaders are 8 times more likely to be assaulted than the general population. We want to reduce that likelihood.
Schools and school leaders are under increasing pressure. For example, there has been a 35% increase in children & young people being suspended in NSW schools over the past five years. We want to do something to reduce this percentage.
At any one time 23% of Australian parents are experiencing behavioural problems with at least one of their children. We want to help with that problem.
There are far too many children entering the child protection system and being separated from their families for too long. We want to reduce this length of time by encouraging earlier intervention and clearer boundaries for parents.
