About us

We are a married couple who have raised two daughters and currently have four grandchildren.   We live on the east coast of Australia and have long been interested in good parenting and how to develop and maintain a great relationship between parents and children in the years from infancy thru teenage years and on into adulthood.   We believe in a strong interactive relationship between child and parent during the formative years.

Happy family

We had somewhat different upbringings but have always sought to put family first and made an effort to put quality time into our own children’s upbringing and education.  We always strove to maintain good communication with our children so as to provide a strong foundation, based on good moral values, positive encouragement and consistent discipline. 

Adriana has a background in art and graphics teaching in high school.  She involved her teenage students in an extensive range of creative activities to broaden their horizons… paint, clay, drawing, photography, ceramics and many more. She also taught evening classes for adults wishing to further develop their skills.  Her interests include retail visual merchandising and interior design.  Adriana is also a qualified counsellor, having specialised in child development.
