Riki Tame Your Zoo Personalised Zookeeper Training

How many years of parenting
do you have left?

We have roughly 18-20 years to raise that precious cute-as-a-button-baby into a content, respectful and valuable member of society. How far down the track are you?

Just starting out or halfway?

Can you already smell the chalk on the finish line?

(Are we ever really ‘finished’?)

Wherever you are in the race, time is waiting for no one. That lion cub, koala joey, cheeky monkey or adorable little meerkat will grow up, no matter what you do.

But HOW they grow up does matter.

You have the choice to raise them in a way they feel understood, valued and loved.

When you understand their different temperaments, you will be able to communicate your love to them in an engaging way, as you will know the basic strengths, weaknesses, frustrations and way they show and want to receive love. This can make all the difference in their world.

What an insightful program! Riki presents it in easy to understand terms (which I need, and then some!), with on point suggestions and options on how to better understand your children.

I am a fan, I am a major fan.

Thank you Riki for taking us through it

How does it work?

This training program is a 7-part customised course
where I meet with you one-on-one.

We will explore the combination of your zoo and work on a long-term parenting strategy with easy-to-implement practical tips and tools.

Each session will run for 60-minute on either Zoom or Team.

And you can decide the pace of the sessions – daily, weekly, fortnightly, whatever suites your schedule and needs.

I cover the following:

  • Parenthood
  • All the different temperaments in your family
  • The characteristics, strengths and weaknesses of each temperament
  • Your own personal parenting style and how that impacts on your children
  • The different love languages.

As this is a customised option, this is just a guideline, and is subject to change to suit your family best.

You will walk away with a clear long-term parenting strategy.

This will be based on an understanding of the different temperaments in your family, including yourself, and how to communicate effectively with each one. We will discuss lots of easy-to-remember tips and tools on how to support each person in your household to grow into mature, content, respectful, reliable adults full of character and integrity.

I loved the ‘wow’ moments where you could slot in your kids, people you know, and even your mother-in-law!

Lion Tame your Zoo

Your child is growing up, no matter what you do, and your window of influence is getting smaller as they get bigger.

That’s why you need to connect with your child now, while you still can, and guide them to accept themselves for who they are and to work with their own strengths and weaknesses, by understanding their own temperaments.

Your investment

Imagine changing your family’s legacy forever!

But what if…

Tame Your Zoo | Do you think out loud?

We are already a happy family

Lucky you! However, I still think it is worth it to know the dynamics in your family according to temperaments. As kids grow older, you will be prepared for, or even avoid, some speed wobbles along the way by being proactive.

My partner is not on board

You can still benefit from understanding the different temperaments in your home, even that of your partner’s. You can still show your love and understanding to your kids and parent in a whole different way.  A way where they can feel accepted for who they are, to be who they ought to be. And even if you feel uncertain, know that I’ve got you.

I can’t afford it

That’s OK. I also have a group coaching course named ‘Zookeeper Group Training’ that might suit your budget. In fact, many people actually prefer the group coaching course, as that gives them the opportunity to meet other parents who are also discovering the temperaments of their zoo.

Riki is a world of wisdom, knowledge and experience. She has done the hard yards of studying hundreds of books and other people’s life experiences, done many courses and had lots of discussions with different families. Her coaching provides backed up research, practical tips and tools, an all-in-one-package. An expert in parenting with two wonderful kids to back it up.

She is my parent warrior.

Raising kids is hard. Raising well-adjusted, morally responsible kids who are kind, respectful, confident and sensitive to others in an everchanging world is an overwhelming task. Riki’s inquisitiveness and thoroughness means her courses are well-researched with credible references from a wide spectrum of (sometimes differing) viewpoints, ensuring balanced and unbiased content. Her practical advice and coaching have not only given me the confidence to make better choices about my own parenting, but also about dealing with people in general. It’s helped me understand myself, my partner and my children better, bringing us closer together as a family.

It takes a village to raise a child and I’m grateful to have Riki in my village.

I’d recommend Tame Your Zoo to anyone who wants to optimise positive parenting in their home. Riki’s easy-to-implement suggestions are game-changing. My husband and I did one-to-one training and I loved that Riki was open to helping us with whatever was happening for our family that week, rather than focussing only on her content for the week.

Now that we’ve worked with Riki, we have a list of strategies that Riki developed for our unique circumstances.

Super value-packed and worth the money. Riki is very supportive, non-judgmental, and genuinely wants to help make families happier.

You will walk away with a clear long-term parenting strategy. This will be based on an understanding of the different temperaments in your family, including yourself, and how to communicate effectively with each one.

What if I want a refund?

If you are serious about this, a 50% refund can be given before the commencement of the third session. After this, unfortuanetly no refunds will be available.

But hey, I believe this will be of so much value to you and your family that this will not even be an option.

What is a temperament?

A temperament is the innate traits you are born with. And you can’t change that. This will always determine certain traits in a person, e.g. extrovert or introvert, prefers tasks over people or people over tasks, an optimistic or pessimistic worldview, focused on details or rather the big picture, just to name a few.

As we grow up, we are influenced by our experiences, culture and upbringing, but our temperament will often determine how we respond behaviourally and emotionally towards other people and events.

Isn't there already a lot of parenting courses available online?

Yes, but this parenting course is unique, as it is based on the different temperaments, a psychology approach that has been around for 2,500 years.

Can I do this course if I'm not a parent?

This course is also the perfect solution to understand your spouse or partner, extended family members (including your mother-in-law), friends, colleagues, teachers, sport coaches and even your favourite coffee barista.

Because we’re all humans. We all have a natural, ingrained temperament and once you understand how to recognise these in your children, you can use the same skills for everyone else in your life. 

This parenting course is full of fun and laughter, properly researched facts, practical parenting tips and tools, homework, and sometimes calling a spade a spade.

It might feel challenging, but I can promise you it will be life-changing. I know you are the kind of parent who is really actively involved in your parenting and wants to be the best parent you can be. I can’t wait to see you figuring out your zoo and the positive impact it will have on your family!
