WELCOME TO AMAZING LIFE

Hi.  I'm May Clarke.  I'm so glad you've found me here. I hope you find this a place that you can visit often to get inspiration and parenting techniques to help you and your child enjoy your journey together.

 

WHY DID I WRITE A PARENTING BOOK?

 

To tell you the truth, if I was asked this question 14 years ago, I would have wondered why myself.  See motherhood didn't come easy for me. I don't know why I had this idea that I would be a 'natural mum'.  I now realise that parenting doesn't come naturally.  It actually is a skill and the great thing about that, is skills can be learnt.  Phew!  

 

So for me, it took many years of trial and error, formal studies in complimentary health and a bucket load of self reflection before I could come to a point of being comfortable in sharing my experiences with other parents.  In my book 'Amazing Kids!', I tell it how it is. All the ups and downs as well as the gems that will help parenting so much easier.  And I can honestly say that it will become easier, whole heartedly. Here's what a parent reviewer had to say about Amazing Kids!:

 

 

'If parenting came with a handbook the advice in this book should be included.'

Joanna Harrison, Baulkham Hills NSW

I thought motherhood would be a piece of cake...

Before giving birth I thought I had it all down pat.  Like everything else, I thought I'd simply project manage the task and presto!  Well what a rude shock it was after 14 hours of exhausting labour, an emergency cesear and many months of suffering from sleep deprivation.  (I had one of those babies that cried constantly - day and night.) Because of my poor mental state, my actions nearly ended up tragically. Luckily 14 years later, I'm happy to say that I survived and I'm the proud and grateful mother of two beautiful, happy and thriving kids.

 

Disaster in the making... The day I nearly KILLED my baby!

Having desperately tried all measures to get my baby to sleep I resorted to the oldest trick in the book and took my baby for countless spins around the block in the car, before I finally reached success.  I parked the car slowly in the garage, being careful not to wake my baby.  I decided to leave the car engine running, and kept the door a little ajar so not to wake and startle my baby with the sudden slam of the door.  

 

I quickly dashed back inside the house to fetch the baby monitor and placed it next to the car seat so that I could hear every breath and sound she made. Then I carefully tip toed out of the garage for the second time and shut the garage door behind me, to block out the loud rumbling sounds of trains that intermitently passed by.  I then waited anxiously inside the house, glued to the other end of the baby monitor.

  

Thank God my mother instinct kicked in!

Luckily, not long after, my motherly instinct kicked in and I decided to check up on my baby. I felt pure shock and horror when I opened the garage door, and the smell and sight of smoke hit me right in the face.  I couldn't contemplate what could have happened if I had returned another minute too late. To this very day, I'm so grateful that I followed my motherly instinct and returned when I did.

 

How  self esteem and beliefs come to play

I soon realised that my preconceived ideas about parenting and what it should 'look like' was somewhat idealistic and was totally linked to my internal drivers and beliefs. (We all come with our own set of baggage when we become parents and they don't just magically go away.) It wasn't until many years later, when I studied complimentary medicine, that I gained this valuable insight which reshaped my whole thinking.  The results were quite profound.  It was through working on my issues and through helping clients with their own struggles, that I gained a deeper understanding on how the success of parenting is directly linked to the parents' own beliefs and self esteem.

 

 

'I sure didn't know about a lot of these things when I was a new mother and wish I had've!'

Testimonials

  • May came into my life when I was struggling to adapt to single life after many years of marriage. At one session May set me a homework task to every day seek something that brought me joy, happiness or a smile. On many days, in my anxious, depressed, alone state, I found nothing, but over time May taught me how to nourish myself, how to make room in my life for me, and not be burdened by responsibility. Now every day holds joyous events. My life is full of wonderful people, and experiences I never dreamed possible a few years ago. I look younger, feel healthier, and many new doors have opened for me. May has guided me towards a more fulfilling life, in a simple and non-judgmental manner. May has helped me find my authentic self and, for that, she will always have a special place in my heart.

  • I just wanted to say the biggest thank-you for spending so much time with mum today. She was totally blown away by you. She hasn’t been able to move her arms up so high since the accident. She absolutely raved about you and the whole treatment. Thanks so much May. Mum has said that it’s been ‘life changing.’
