- Dr. Laura Markham,

Founder of AhaParenting

Author of Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids

Parenting is harder than you thought it would be...

You’ get stressed out and start yelling at your kids (and then feel guilty for acting that way)

You’re tired of the power struggles and meltdowns

You lie awake worrying about how you behaved (and feel like you’ll never get rid of your inner critic)

You get frustrated and overwhelmed and feel like your child won’t listen to you unless you shout at them

You don’t want your child to be scared of you, but sometimes it feels like they are

You don’t like the way you feel about your parenting style, you feel ineffective and over-reactive.

Right now you feel like your life is too stressful to be peaceful and kind

You’re worried that your relationship with your child will deteriorate to the point that they won’t want to hang out with you when they’re an adult

You only get one chance to parent your child

Three steps to transform your family into a safe haven for your children to rest and feel safe

Role modeling

When you practice self-compassion with your own challenges and mistakes, you model this voice of kindness and understanding for your children.


They, in turn, will be able to use this compassionate tone with their own struggles.


We all want to hear our children being kind to themselves.

Resilience building

Parenting is hard, and we are all imperfect humans doing the best we can - we are bound to make mistakes.


But when you treat yourselves with compassion, you are more likely to take responsibility for your actions, learn from our mistakes and do better next time.


You really can do better when you feel better inside.

Delight in Parenting

When you parent from a place of self-love, you are more likely to feel emotional generosity toward your children when they make mistakes.


You are then are able to parent with more empathy and playfulness and are less likely to project unrealistic expectations onto your kids.


This creates a supportive and emotionally healthy environment.


This in turn fosters more peaceful parent-child relationships and allows you to delight in being a parent again.

Don't let stress and conflict ruin your relationship with your child

"Dajana showed an outstanding ability to understand and use the principles and practices of playful parenting."

"Dajana successfully completed the Playful Parenting for Parent Educators Program through Playful Parenting International. She showed an outstanding ability to understand and use the principles and practices, both in her work supporting other parents and in her own growth as a parent."

- Lawrence J. Cohen, PhD, President, Playful Parenting International,

Author of Playful Parenting

Through practicing self-compassion you will feel happier yourself (while also raising happier and healthier children)

As a parent, you already possess incredible strength and wisdom.

By learning and practicing self-compassion you can:

Create a bright future for your child by:

  • Supporting them to develop strong foundations for good mental health
  • Supporting them to develop strong foundations for good mental health
  • Modeling positive behavior that helps your child become an honest and ethical adult
  • Showing your child how self-compassion creates compassion for others (including people in need and people who are different from them)
  • Create a calm and stable home environment so your child can be financially independent and happy in their career

Enjoy your parenting journey more by:

  • Learning how to stay calm and present during overwhelming times with your child
  • Changing how you react to tantrums and meltdowns
  • Being more more consistent with peaceful parenting techniques
  • Not trying to be someone who you’re not and finally accepting and loving who you are already
  • Being kinder to your child, to your spouse, and to yourself.
  • Learning how to parent in a different way to your parents

Self-compassion has been able to help me transform in how I show up for my kids

"Dajana is amazing! I've learned so much about self-compassion from her. With her help, I've been able to really transform the way I feel about myself and how I show up for my kids."

- Janette, mom of 3 boys

Peaceful parenting starts with

you being able to regulate your own emotions...

Step 1:

Notice Your Emotions Throughout the Day

Start by developing awareness of your emotions and thoughts as you go about your day.


Take moments to pause and check in with yourself, acknowledging and validating your feelings without judgment.


Notice any patterns or triggers that arise in your interactions with your child.


Step 2:

Meet Your Needs

Recognize that you have needs as a parent and as an individual.


Prioritize self-care and make time for activities that rejuvenate and replenish you.


This may include practicing mindfulness, engaging in hobbies, seeking support from loved ones, or seeking professional help when needed.


By meeting your needs, you can cultivate a sense of well-being and resilience, allowing you to show up as your best self for your child.

Step 3:

Respond to Your Child from Your Best Self

When interacting with your child, aim to respond from a place of self-compassion and mindfulness.


Take a moment to connect with your own inner calm and wisdom before engaging with your child.


This can help you respond with empathy, patience, and understanding, fostering a nurturing and loving environment. Remember, self-compassion allows you to extend the same kindness and understanding to your child as you do to yourself.


Research shows that creating strong bonds with your child when they’re young is the best predictor of their future emotional state of well-being and resilience...

Instead of letting my overwhelm drive my behavior, I began to soothe myself with self-compassion

Working with Dajana has helped me to realize that I wasn’t really taking care of myself. I was always so preoccupied with meeting my kids needs, that I forgot myself in the process. Once I started considering my own needs moment to moment, and getting curious about how I was feeling when my child was having a hard time or other things were overwhelming me in life, I noticed that I had a choice in how to respond to myself. Instead of letting my overwhelm drive my behavior, I began to soothe myself with self-compassion and calm down my own nervous system, so that I could respond to the situation from a calm place instead of a storm. Self-compassion has been a transformative gift in my parenting, but most of all, my own life.

- Karla, mom of 3 boys

Dajana empowered me to love my whole self!

Dajana believes in the power of self compassion to unlock the best version of ourselves especially when our inner critic is in charge. Having someone to remind you of your goodness even in those challenging moments is everything and helps you trust your own goodness in time, too. Her effortless and intentional way to see the common humanity in my unskillfulness, relieved me of the pain of feeling isolated and alone in my struggles, and allowed me to appreciate those parts of myself that I did not do like before, making me more wiling to lean into those difficult parts, release the hold I had on them, and see them for what they’re really are: just a small part of my beautiful human experience. Dajana empowered me to love my whole self!

- Clara, mother of 2

Dajana has been an amazing companion on the journey towards more self-compassionate parenting. I have learned so much from her experience and perspective and felt inspired by her to do the (not always easy) work of becoming more compassionate towards myself so I could be more compassionate towards my children. (And my partner!)

- Heidi, mother of 2

I always thought having coaching was a bit unnecessary or not the thing for me because I think I truly didn’t understand the purpose of coaching. My sessions with Dajana were amazing. I was able to work on a specific problem, and work on solutions to iron on that particular problem before moving on to another issue. I would totally recommend Dajana, she is kind, empathic and has been a game changer in improving my parenting skills.
