About Me

Hi I’m Mama Manon!
.
And I’m so happy that you’ve found my page.
.
My mission is to spread the message of aware and respectful parenting and to support parents that are ready to go on this journey, away from punishments and towards more connection with their children and with themselves.
.
This is how it all started:
When my daughter was 13 months old, she was waking up all night long, every 1 or 2 hours! I was desperate and so very exhausted...
.
I came across Aware Parenting one night on the internet and it changed my life, my way of parenting and the way I see children now.
.
As mentioned on her website, “Aware Parenting is a child rearing approach developed by Aletha Solter, Ph.D. It is based on the latest research in the fields of attachment, child development, psychotherapy, cross-cultural studies, and the neurobiology of trauma.
.
Parents who follow this approach raise children who are cooperative, compassionate, competent, nonviolent, and drug free.
.
Aware Parenting is a form of attachment parenting. We recommend breastfeeding, co-sleeping, baby wearing and prompt responsiveness to crying. We are opposed to punishment, time-outs, threats or other behaviour management strategies.
Aware Parenting adds another element by recognizing the stress-release function of crying in addition to its communication function.”
Since studying Aware Parenting and being Certified by Aletha Solter herself, I’ve been helping hundreds of parents struggling with their child’s unpleasant behaviour and tantrums, supporting them to relate to their children without any punishment.
.
Connection, fun, respect, emotional intimacy and mutual trust are to my eyes, what all valued relationships should be based on. And I’m passionate about supporting parents to find this in their relationship with their children and with themselves.
.
Now I’m also being trained to become a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. Somatic Experiencing is a brilliant mind-body healing modality for trauma resolution, nervous system healing and stress management.
.
Thanks to this amazing training I'm now able to better help parents manage their stress levels, transform their triggers, stay calm around their children and heal from their own past traumas.
.
How can I serve you?
I run regular online programs, offer 1-1 consultations and give lots of information for free on my Facebook page MamaManon: https://www.facebook.com/MamaManonAwP/
.
I'm looking forwards to connecting with you and supporting your family.
