Learn more Lovemore: Toddler to Teen - Discover Practical Boundaries for Modern Parenting
Christina Lovemore lives near Sydney, Australia with her husband John and their three children. Kerry, Nikki and Peter John, affectionately known as P.J. Christina was born in the South of England, near Portsmouth. Her parents decided to travel. Settling down to life in different places was challenging. Christina’s parents went through tough times, ending in a permanent separation. It was during these times Christina found herself looking after her younger brothers. She had to learn about parenting the hard way. She found solace through journalling and writing short stories. Christina became interested in child care and decided to study teaching. She gained qualifications in both primary and pre-primary education. Christina found developmental psychology of particular interest. She went on to further her tertiary education through the study of family counselling. Christina was involved in school counselling and hosted successful parenting workshops. It was during the early days of her teaching career she met her husband John. After the birth of their first child, Kerry, they decided to move to Australia to connect with John’s family. When her second daughter, Nikki, arrived Christina became involved in school life again. Teaching and parenting went hand in hand very well. Christina felt at ease in the library. Books, children and counselling parents made the perfect package, all her favourite things rolled into one. But life has a habit of dishing out some things differently! The arrival of a third child prompted Christina to become a stay at home mum. However, she still wanted to share her knowledge and experience of parenting. She decided to write a book. A parenting book that embraced her love of storytelling with her desire to impart practical parenting knowledge. This was the beginning of Learn More and Lovemore books. and many more writing opportunities for Christina.
I wanted to write a parenting book that was both entertaining and educational at the same time. A real-life look at how coping with a growing family can be challenging, but fulfilling and rewarding too. This book covers all sorts of situations surrounding life with three children, all at different ages and stages of development. It is about how growing with your children and having insight into what makes them who they are is so important. My three children taught me never to categorise them under the same label. They are all different and the only common ground they have is their family ties. Taking a deep dive into goals and family values may seem to business-like for many parents. However, with these principles in place, positive discipline and raising well-adjusted children takes on a new perspective. Parenting, like Dorothy’s journey through Oz, can be scary at times. Put on your ruby slippers, and with your heart in the right place, a brain to think through tough times and the courage of a lion you can follow the yellow brick road. The positive parenting road to a magical place, a place called home.
