“Because kids don’t come with a handbook”
There’s no doubt that everyone likes to think of themselves as the model parent, more than capable of bringing up their children to be happy, confident well-balanced adults.
What happens however when you’ve tried everything and it just isn’t quite working out the way you’d planned?
Well, let’s face it; kids are a challenge, so is the job of being a parent, and when the two don’t come with a clear and simple handbook to provide you with all the answers, it’s easy to understand why many parents are seeing the benefit of working with experts like Sue Atkins.
Sue Atkins is a Parenting Expert, Broadcaster, Speaker, Coach and Author of the Amazon best seller “Parenting Made Easy – How To Raise Happy Children” and the highly acclaimed Parenting Made Easy CDs. She has recently launched the first in her exciting new series of Parenting Made Easy apps for iPhones and IPads which offers advice on the go. Sue is also a former Deputy Head teacher with over 22 years experience working with both parents and children.
Sue is passionate about parenting and is completely dedicated to working closely with parents to offer practical guidance for bringing up happy, confident, well-behaved children from toddler to teen.
Sue knows from experience, having supported many parents since the launch of her Parenting Practice that the most common difficulties encountered can often be resolved when parents achieve a sense of clarity, direction and confidence in their own ability as a parent.
Sue explains “When things aren’t going to plan, it’s easy to focus on what you aren’t managing to achieve with your children, rather than focusing positively on what you are! Changing this attitude is the vital first step in achieving parental success”.
Sue offers lots of new strategies, techniques and down to earth practical ideas for raising happy, confident, well – behaved children, free from finger pointing, judgement or criticism. She helps parents discover their own answers through exploring their own resources and skills and creating options that will work for their own unique family.

Put simply, Parent Coaching is a series of conversations with a purpose between Sue and the parents she works with. It is a professional and personal relationship to assist parents in moving forward and creating change easily and effortlessly.
It introduces new ways for parents to think about themselves and their family relationships in a non-judgmental, non-critical and confidential way. It’s about helping and empowering parents to discover their own answers that work for their own unique family.
Sue’s telephone coaching is an effective way for parents to work with Sue as part of group exploring, discovering and learning new strategies, techniques and skills – fine tuning confidence, and helping parents to become the parent their children deserve, and the parent they’ve always wanted to be.
Sue empowers parents to unlock the “secret code” to their parenting potential, instilling confidence in their own ability to succeed.
