Welcome to Parenthood : How to design a fabulous family life
You can wing it, hope for the best and wait for your kid to get older before you try to fix any problems (at which point, it could be too late).
Or you can prepare and know that you've done everything in your power to support your child's mental, physical and emotional wellbeing, while also honouring your own individuality, plans, aspirations, goals and needs.
Being a parent is not for the faint-hearted. Being a parent requires courage, knowledge and practice. We're talking about a contract for life. Are you ready?
Welcome to Parenthood examines parenting as a social, emotional and even revolutionary activity. This book defines the twenty-first-century family living space and seeks to see every child and parent in this world empowered, valued, accepted and acknowledged. Discover how to create a harmonious home environment where all members of the family thrive.

'Though my kids are reaching adolescent years, the wisdom and guidance is SO relevant. Suni's words transcend age and time because she addresses what we as humans crave in today's world, connection, acknowledgment for who we are and authentic expression that is revered and nurtured. Who wouldn't want to raise their families in this manner? This is 21st-century parenting that democratizes how we view our roles in a family unit. I can apply Suni's suggestions even today with my kids. Very valuable resource at any stage of parenting.'

'As an expectant mother and early childhood teacher the invaluable information, support and strategies provided are now my essential guide for creating a positive and fulfilling family life. Welcome to Parenthood has an authentic view of parenthood and challenges old/outdated ways of thinking in a new innovative/modern era.'
- Thalia McDonald, expectant mother, Early Childhood Teacher/Researcher, Sydney, Australia
'What I perhaps love most is that while it's packed with suggestions on WHAT to do and how to build a strong and fabulous family dynamic from day dot, it emphasises the need for us to look after our needs as an individual along the way. A book every parent should read.'
- Alexx Stuart, Author and Founder of Low Tox Life, Sydney, Australia
'Whilst the book doesn't take you on a blow by blow of feeding and burping etc. it does not intend to. It allows the reader to step back and consider the end game of raising positive, respectful and empowered individuals and the philosophies and mindsets that can underpin that. This book is a very interesting read for someone wanting to start a family or hoping for insights into parenting, including some humorous personal anecdotes from the author's own family experiences.'
- Brett Stone, first-time dad and educator, Sydney, Australia
