Some kiddies are just happy-go-lucky people, looking for fun and dodging responsibility. 

Others want as much information as possible, and then just a little bit more, before they can even get started.


Your children (just like you) were born with a specific temperament, and nothing will ever change that.

This impacts how they experience and engage with the world around them. I can help you understand and use this knowledge to communicate more effectively with everyone in your household to create more harmony in your family, while developing children into mature adults with character, integrity and respect.

It is easier to build strong children, than to repair broken adults.

~ Frederick Douglas

In 400 BC Hippocrates already formulated the theory of different temperaments in people. Even in today’s modern civilisation, this still rings true. Why?

Because people are still … well, people.

But how to know what is best for your child? By knowing your child’s temperament (and um-uhm, your own temperament too) you can understand why some forms of communication just doesn’t work for some kids, while other methods work brilliantly.

Over the past decade, I’ve trained numerous zoo keepers, AKA, parents, to raise children with character and integrity in a fun way. How? Through understanding each family member’s specific temperament and how to maximise each one’s full potential.

I feel that Riki’s parenting coaching has strengthened my bond with my kids. She had advice for issues I was struggling with at the time, but also prepared me for future parenting decisions. I am forever grateful for her help.

Why do I use animals to discuss childhood temperaments? No, I’m not calling your child a wild animal (but no judgement if you do, though). I could’ve chosen colours, numbers, shapes or letters of the alphabet, but…

With this recent semi-lockdown, I realised yet again how connected to nature we actually are. I can see why mental health issues are an increasing problem if people are locked up in an urban environment for too long…

What if you could load up a whole zoo on a party bus? What do you think it will look like? What animals will you choose to join the party?
