What: Phone based Hand in Hand Parenting Group for Parents of Pre-Teen and Teen children (9-12+ year olds). In these Support Calls, we will share facilitated listening time with a small group of other parents who are also reaching out for support. These groups are 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.
Who: These groups are open to all parents of pre-teens and teens, although it is preferable if you have some familiarity with the Hand in Hand Parenting approach. If you are not familiar with Hand in Hand Parenting*, before the group starts I highly recommend booking an optional One-on-One Consultation. Offered for Support Call participants at a 40% discount off the regular price.
Where: Phone based group conference call with a US based dial-in number, and local numbers available for most other countries. You can also join the conference call via your web browser or via a phone app.

Length of Call: Plan on 90 minutes, but if there is only a small group, we may take less time. If there is only one person on a call, the call will be 30 minutes maximum.
How many Calls: You can choose to join us for between one and three meetings. If you are new to this group I would strongly encourage you to join us for as many meetings as possible as we build connections and relationships. You may be able to purchase additional calls once the group has started, depending on number of participants.

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.
All times in PDT
One-On-One Consultation: If this order is cancelled by you at any time, there is no refund of the One-on-One 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 up to 28th March 2018. You will receive your funds within 5 business days in the U.S. (within 7 days outside the U.S.), depending on your bank. Otherwise 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.
Support Calls: If cancelled by Event Organiser: your fees will be refunded in full to the credit card you paid with.
- If cancelled by you, a full refund of any Support Calls you have paid for will be issued if you cancel in writing by 5p.m. 09/02/18
- 75% will be refunded if you cancel your ticket between 5p.m. 09/02/18 and 5p.m. 16/02/18.
- 50% will be refunded if you cancel between 5:00p.m. 16/02/18 and 5 p.m. on 23/02/18.
- There will be no refund for tickets cancelled after 5p.m.23/02/18, or if you miss a meeting.
* If you are new to Hand in Hand, I would strongly suggest purchasing a copy of the “Listening to Children” booklets. If you are in the US, the best way to purchase them is direct from Hand in Hand Parenting HERE. You can also purchase a digital version HERE. If you are based in Australia, it is cheaper for you to purchase hard copies of the booklets directly from Madeleine. You can organise to do so HERE.
I have collected some resources for Parents of Pre-Teens Please take some time to have a look/listen before our group starts.
