What: Hand in Hand Support Call/Skill Building Group for parents – a chance for you to share your parenting experiences, reflect on your own story, plan for the challenges of family life and have your questions answered about using the Hand in Hand approach in your family. You can find out more about Support Calls here.
Who: For parents of children 0-12. This group is open to all parents, but it will help if you have some familiarity with Hand in Hand Parenting, or have attended a course or talk that Madeleine has run. If you are not familiar with Hand in Hand Parenting, before the group starts I highly recommend booking an optional Parenting Consultation, offered for Support Call participants at a 30% discount off the regular price – if you are interested contact Madeleine. Also see below.*1
How: We use Zoom Conferencing. You can join with vision via your web browser or an app on your phone. You can also simply dial in using your phone. There are local dial-in numbers in many countries.

You may be able to purchase additional calls once the group has started, depending on number of participants.
Parenting Consultations: Are available at a discounted rate if you purchase the Support Calls. If you purchased a Consultation, feel free to go ahead and book a time.

Refunds are considered on a case by case basis, but in general (dates below are all in US Pacific/Australian Eastern Time).
Event Cancellation: Groups need a minimum number. If there are not enough people, we will notify you within a few days of the event start date – so please keep the dates available until you hear from us.
Missed meetings: no refund is available if you miss a meeting. If spaces are available, we will do our best to include you in a later call.
Parenting Consultation: If this order is cancelled by you at any time, there is no refund of the Parenting Consultation fee. However, I understand that life happens, and I am happy to reschedule at a mutually convenient time. If you need to cancel please let me know 24 hrs. in advance, whenever possible. If we reschedule a call at your request and it is missed a second time, your original fee will be forfeited and you will need to purchase additional time.
I am a parent, and life happens to me too. If I have to reschedule the consultation for whatever reason, you can elect to receive a refund. Alternatively, we can reschedule, in which case, the conditions above apply – I cannot refund, and if you miss that rescheduled appointment, and a subsequent one, you will forfeit your fee.
If you elect to take a refund, you will receive your funds within 5 business days in the U.S. (within 7 days outside the U.S.), depending on your bank, via the method you paid. You may need to provide your bank account details for the refund.
Support Calls: If cancelled by Event Organiser: your fees will be refunded*1 to the credit card you paid with.
If cancelled by you, we reserve the right to refund
