If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?

“In my work, one of the biggest things I see is when people come up against stuff that’s really tricky and how they respond to that. It’s good to check in and ask, “What am I making this story/ this circumstance mean about me?” 



I am delighted to introduce you to the amazing Lael Stone. Lael is a renowned parenting counselor, author, and speaker who has spent over two decades working with families to help them create strong connections and relationships with their children.

In this episode, Lael shares her insights on a range of topics, including her work as a birth educator, post-natal trauma counselor, and parenting educator. She talks candidly about her experiences working with teens around sexuality, well-being, and relationships, and shares her passion for empowering parents to create stronger connections with their children.

Lael is the co-creator of Woodline Primary School, an innovative new school that focuses on emotional well-being and connection. She discusses her journey in creating the school and how it has impacted the lives of the students and families involved.

As a sought-after public speaker, Lael has been invited to speak at various events and organizations around emotional awareness and trauma-informed practices. She also talks about her partnership with The Resilience Project and their work in raising resilient children all over Australia.

Throughout the episode, Lael provides practical advice for parents who are looking to improve their parenting skills and create stronger connections with their children. She also shares insights from her recently released book, 'Raising Resilient and Compassionate Children', which has been a hit with parents and is a must-read for anyone looking to improve their parenting skills.
