"I have been


I finally know what to say to my daughter
about beauty, clothes and make-up."


Do these sound familiar?

My daughter cares too much about what other people think.

She's always coming home in tears because of friendship dramas.

She says she’s dumb and hopeless and I don't know what to say.

How do I respond when she says she
hates her body?

She has anxiety and is afraid to try new things or go out of her comfort zone.

I’m onboard with free play but what about the ipad and playing games?

Am I doing the wrong thing complimenting my daughter on her looks?

What do I tell my daughter about
why I wear make-up?

You are not alone!

Together we can raise strong, joyful and resilient girls who believe in themselves. 


"This wasn't just helpful for my daughter, you empowered our whole family."

If our girls are going to thrive in a world that is crushing so many of their peers,

they need 7 foundation pillars so that they are strong enough to withstand whatever life throws at them and are able to reach their potential. 

But the problem is that these foundation pillars rarely develop naturally. We need to be very intentional in our parenting to instil and strengthen our girls' foundations so they are ready for anything. 

If we want our daughters to grow up liking themselves and believing in themselves then we need to be brave enough to do something different.

We can’t parent the way girls have always been parented and expect a different result. 

We know this because we spent 10 years trawling through the highest quality research and interviewing the world’s leading experts to discover exactly what we as parents can do to end the cycle or girls growing up believing they are not good enough. 

We created a framework for parents to build the 7 Essential Foundation Pillars in their daughter that is based on studies and is easy to implement, no matter how busy and complicated family life can be. 

We have had the honour of helping thousands of parents learn the tools and techniques to empower their daughters to like themselves. 

And the added bonus is that these parents have even empowered themselves!

This could be you...

“Brilliant stuff! I now use this on myself...even at my age. šŸ˜

“I struggled with my own self confidence too and needed this for me as much as for my girls!”

"My friend and I have agreed we are learning skills for ourselves too! At the age of 40 šŸ™ˆšŸ˜‚"



Brave Parents Academy

Brave Parents Academy is a 7-week interactive online course to give you a quick and easy — yet powerful and proven — framework to prevent the lack of self-belief, anxiety, poor body image and buckets of tears that so many girls struggle with in today's society.

From the international bestselling authors of Raising Girls Who Like Themselves

The Brave Parents Academy is for parents, carers, teachers and grandparents, of girls aged toddler to tween, who are willing to commit one hour a week for seven weeks to learn how to build a solid foundation for their girl so that she can withstand anything life throws at her and thrive. 

Every technique in the Brave Parents Academy is backed by research.

Our framework is based on the highest quality evidence and is easy to implement within our busy, messy, complicated lives. 


Success story...

My 12 year old daughter tends to lean towards a negative state of being. 'School is going to be terrible', 'I’m not smart enough for maths', the list goes on.

So after watching the Power Perspective Module in Brave Parents Academy, I decided it was something we were going to consciously talk about and work to change.

We sat and talked and I got a lot of 'yeah mum I know', and more than one eye rolls. In short, I didn’t think she listened to a single world.

I decided to leave it and come back at another time.

Before I had a chance to do that, I received a message from my daughter's teacher.

Her teacher couldn’t believe her positive, can do, 'I’ll give it a try' attitude.

My daughter even said the words 'I’m choosing to have a good year this year' which is what I had learned from your module! 

I too was astounded a single conversation, that I didn’t think had gone particularly well, was providing a positive change in behaviour and attitude in a very short space of time.

Now when her thoughts linger too long in a negative space, I remind her she has the power to choose. 

Thank you Kasey and Chris for this wonderful gift.

By the end of this program,

you will …


  • Understand why girls often care too much about what other people think, and how to prevent it.

    Research shows that by the age of 10 many girls are crippled by concerns about what other people think. The Brave Parents Academy will show you exactly what you need to do to teach your girl to believe in herself.
  • Know a major cause of anxiety that is often overlooked and how to mitigate it.

    Sadly what we have been told is "good parenting" in today's society is making girls' anxiety worse, not better. The Brave Parents Academy will show you how to crush the anxiety before it even starts. 
  • Learn one rule that will bring crystal clarity to every little question about hair, make-up and what you should let your daughter wear.

    No more doubting your parenting, because you will know for certain that each decision is the right one. 
  • Put an end to friendship dramas and tears.

    You will learn kid-friendly techniques that are proven to strengthen your daughter's friendships and reduce the likelihood and the severity of bullying
  • Build real body confidence in your daughter.

    Alarmingly, much of the advice about girls and body image is flat out wrong. It's actually part of the problem! Learn how to talk about food, exercise, weight and appearance so that your daughter grows up feeling good and empowered about her body.

Give your daughter the confidence you may not have had.

I WISH I had been raised this way. You have taught me SO much about myself and I am very grateful. I am trying to learn and grow in hopes of being an example and teacher to my own girls so that they might have the confidence that I was very good at faking but never actually had.

What's inside the Brave Parents Academy

Module 1

Power Perspective

Two girls can be faced with exactly the same difficult situation yet one girl will push through and thrive and the other girl will be crushed by it. Very often the difference is not about the girls' capabilities, it's about their perspective. The first girl has been taught to think in a way that works for her (a power perspective), the other has not.  

Absolutely everything in life becomes easier and more joyful when your daughter has learned the Essential Foundation Pillar of Power Perspective.

Module Highlights:

  • Simple and easy everyday moments to build your daughter's power perspective.
  • Common parenting mistakes that rob girls of their confidence and teach them to believe they are weak and never good enough. 
  • How to teach your daughter to trust herself and be resilient to criticism and bullying.

"A big AHA! moment for me was in regards to giving away my own power. I do tend to externalise power and I was teaching my children to do the same." 


Module 2

Body Confidence

Girls are not born hating their bodies but as they grow up many of them sadly will. The epidemic of body hatred can cause insecurity and self-loathing, life-threatening eating disorders and cosmetic surgery, damage girls' and women's relationships, and suck the joy out of life. Alarmingly, much of the advice that parents are given about body image is making the problem even worse. This module will show you exactly what you need to do to build real and lasting body confidence.

Module Highlights:

  • Understanding what is "real" body confidence and how to build it within your daughter.
  • How to prevent your daughter from being obessesed with weight and what to do if you think your daughter is above her natural weight.
  • Get clarity on how to talk about food and exercise to empower your daughter and avoid life-long hang-ups and anxiety. 

"It's having a big impact on me too. The shift from weight to wellness has clicked and for the last two days I have been happily walking after I drop the kids off to school and I even took myself swimming today for the first time in years."

Module 3

Body Ownership

In today's society we like to think we teach girls that they own their bodies, but in many cases they are actually learning the opposite. Research shows that girls are grossly underprepared to withstand the influence of the beauty and cosmetic surgery industries, pressures from social media, and unwanted sexual requests later in life. We need to teach our girls the skills of body ownership within the safe environment of our homes before they are confronted with the toxic and dangerous pressures from the outside world.

Module Highlights:

  • How to gently teach your daughter body ownership skills now that will keep her safe later when you are not there to protect her.
  • One simple rule that will bring crystal clarity to every decision you have to make about your daughter's clothes, hair, earrings, and make-up.
  • What to tell your daughter about your own use of make-up and dressing up without teaching her to be superficial.

"I’m already speaking to my daughter differently because of the beautifully-delivered, evidence-based strategies. What a breath of fresh air!" 


Module 4


Parents have been sold a lie that they need to cram as many skills and experiences into their daughters as quickly as possible. This is resulting in stressed-out, anxious and unhappy children — and parents! Ironically, this often leads to children learning less, not more. This module will help you create the right conditions for your girl to have a joyful, creative and enriching childhood, and create the Essential Foundation Pillar of calm that she needs to learn, thrive and find her purpose. It's also going to make your life calmer too!

PS: By calm we don't mean girls must be quiet, zen and obedient. Our girls are just as likely to do an ill-timed cartwheel down the supermarket aisle or use their outside voices inside as any other kids!

Module Highlights:

  • The link between calm and good mental health, learning, creativity, and happiness and how to instil it.
  • What the research actually says about screen time and homework. This one is going to make your life so much easier!
  • Find out if your daughter is getting enough sleep and what to do if she's not. 

"Thank you so much for cracking open this layer of delusion."

Module 5

Mastery and Independence

Contrary to popular belief, we can't give our daughters self-esteem simply by telling them over and over again how great they are. In fact, constantly telling our girls how awesome they are can make them even more insecure! Real and enduring self-esteem blooms from within your daughter, and you can create the right conditions for this by supporting her in developing her mastery and independence.

Module Highlights:

  • Succeeding is a skill. Learn how to teach this skill to your daughter. 
  • Discover how to teach your daughter to "fail well" rather than to fear failure.
  • Find out how to use praise the right way, so that it empowers your daughter rather than creating the conditions for her to become an insecure paise junkie.

"Module 5 is sooo applicable to our 7yo daughter. I really resonated with you and the play gym equipment story.  My 2nd born gives anything a crack and isn’t afraid of failure – she has mastery. My 7 year old does not…yet."

Module 6

Strong Relationships

Friendship problems are a major factor in many girls' lives, affecting not only their mental health and wellbeing but also their learning. Your daughter will not be concentrating on division and multiplication if she had a fight with a friend at lunchtime that she doesn't have the skills to handle. This module is about getting ahead of the problems, helping you support your daughter in learning how to choose friend who are good for her, how to resolve conflict in productive ways and how to reduce the severity and likelihood of bullying.

Module Highlights:

  • Discover how to teach your daughter essential social skills and friendship skills so she can thrive in any situation.
  • A step-by-step guide for resolving conflict and standing up to bullies.
  • Find out a quick and easy hack to deepen your daughter's connection with you.

"I must confess to us having a bit of a doh moment. Your strategies make so much sense." 

Module 7


This module is about helping your daughter grow into the best version of the person she chooses to be, so that she doesn't succumb to the pressures of peers, advertisers and other people in authority who don't have her best interest at heart. 

Module Highlights:

  • Find and develop your daughter's strengths and spark.
  • How to use tantrums as powerful teachable moments.
  • Develop your daughter's kindness and empathy without tuning her into a people pleaser. 

"We devoured this course and are so happy to walk away feeling empowered!"

What parents are saying about Kasey and Chris' parenting framework...


"This has been an eye opener without making me feel bad about my parenting. I’m already speaking to my daughter differently because of the beautifully-delivered, evidence based content. What a breath of fresh air!"


"I wish I had been raised this way. You have taught me so much about myself and I am very grateful. Now I can give my own girls the confidence that I never had." 


"Even though I had great family support growing up, I wish I’d learnt more of these strategies as a child.  I feel fortunate to have found your book and course so I can give my children what I didn't get."


“Quite possibly the most important book I’ve ever read. I wish I had come across your book many years ago as I am sure it would have helped us not get to our current position."


"Thanks for your help Kasey. Your book caught my eye at the right time as my daughter got teased at school. This was heartbreaking to see as she is only in kindergarten. I’m so grateful I have the help from your onto the course."


"I highly recommend this book for everyone!!! Not just girls and kids. I have noticed a massive difference since I started." 


"A million times thank you! It’s been so nice sharing snippets of your advice with my husband both in a way of helping us navigate our challenging 8 year old daughter but also letting us know that our experiences are normal and in turn - so is she."


"This is by far the best parenting book I have ever read. Not clinical, easy to read and it has become my bible."

We can’t wait for you to join Brave Parents Academy

After the birth of our first daughter Violet I remember holding my precious baby girl in my arms, worrying how I was going to be the mother she needed me to be, so that she would grow up liking herself more than I did when I was growing up. 

Chris and I spent 10 years researching and interviewing the world’s leading experts in childhood development, psychology and education to discover a proven and practical parenting approach. 

I can tell you that my self-doubts and worries as a parent faded away. I now have a set of principles that are rock solid, making me confident that my parenting decisions are the right ones. 

Every day I watch as that precious little baby girl from 12 years ago grows into the self-confident, resilient and optimistic young woman I always hoped and dreamed she would be. 

Raising a resilient, confident girl who believes in herself is easier than most people think and Chris and I want to share this knowledge with you and other brave parents to end this awful cycle of insecurity and self-loathing in girls.

Joining Brave Parents Academy is 100% risk free, so we hope to see you on the inside so that you too will have the power and knowledge to raise your daughter to be a ‘ready-for-anything’ girl who likes herself.
