Why do children behave the way they do?

As children grow, many things will affect their overall development, in particular a child’s environment, their parents responses and of course, their own innate characteristics. Hence why the Nature versus Nurture debate is so fascinating! There’s such a fine line between the things we learn via experience and how our natural responses to those experiences […]

Laura was nursery nurse to my two children way back at the beginning of her career. I handed my four month old baby to her in floods of tears on many occasions with the whole mummy guilt thing strong - but it helped that I knew that both he and his two year old sister loved her and went for cuddles without hesitation, which made it much easier. She had a natural affinity with children, and mine weren’t the only ones scrambling to clamber onto her knees or running back for extra goodby kisses at the end of the day. Laura came into her own when I asked for her help to get my then three year old daughter to part with her dummy. We had tried everything and always ended up giving in to the inevitable tantrum. Laura. Introduced us to ‘the dummy fairy’ and told us she would ‘sort it’. She came the next day with the most beautifully illustrated letter to our daughter from the dummy fairy, and a beautiful bag. The letter was to be hung in the bag on a tree in the garden for her to find in the morning. The letter asked for the dummies to be donated to the fairy for the dummy castle, and in return she could ask for a treat. We never looked back! The dummies went and I have seen her use this technique over and over in the years since to help other families. The pleasure of watching Laura develop her career, based on very natural connections and understanding of children has been immense, there are no gimmicks just a genuine love of watching and helping children to develop into the best that they can possibly be, a straight talking Yorkshire girl with a big heart and the professional know how

I’ve been really struggling with my mental health recently and challenges with food with 22 month year old only add to the stress/anxiety. I signed up for the fussy food webinar at a bargain price of £25 would have happily paid more 3 hours of content definitely worth it. Although there is a lot of practical content it changed my way of thinking and I now look at it from a different perspective. Like anything there’s no magic wand you have to make several small changes, some I’m not ready to do but the ones I’ve Already done after two weeks have made a massive difference to my stress levels and most importantly made meal times more fun for my little one. Thanks again laura for your help .

I have 3 kids - 6 y.o., 3 y.o. And 1 y.o. All of them had their own challenges when it comes to sleep. It was so bad that I couldn't function properly and take proper care of my kids because of how sleep deprived I was. At that point I couldn't deal with this anymore but then I saw Nannyamies post on social media. She was hosting sleep webinar! It honestly was God sent! She gave us so much information and covered EVERYTHING I could think of and even more! Following her advice it took us less than a week to have everything resolved and 7 month later, since that webinar, we're still sleeping peacefully. I'm forever grateful to her!

We reached out to Laura after watching her Toddlers behaving (very) badly television show. We live in Australia and as an ex-pat Brit, just loved the show and thought Laura’s approach was brilliant. After following Laura on socials with the aim to get some tips on toilet training, I found a webinar she was hosting on the subject and didn’t hesitate to sign up. The webinar Laura presented contained amazing advice, practical information, and armed us with a renewed energy to tackle our child’s toilet training problems head on, and with a confidence that, quite frankly we were lacking. (We had struggled for well over a year and had started to look into psychologists for our little girl as she was petrified of the toilet/ potty ?!) ...just a couple of weeks after the webinar & practising all Laura’s advice, our little girl was toilet trained, finally out of nappies and most importantly; SO, SO proud of herself ?. I’ve no doubt Laura’s careful approach to coaching parents on troublesome topics has helped us understand our little persons needs ten fold. Highly recommend! ?

I have attended Laura’s webinars on sleep training, potty training, behaviours and fussy eating and found them so helpful and interesting. I’m finally feeling confident with tackling issues with some of her expert knowledge. Thank you so much for helping and making lockdown that little bit easier!!

I contacted Laura after seeing her thought provoking videos online. To say we were sleep deprived parents at that point was an understatement. Our little girl had just turned 2 and had only slept through the night for a couple of times and needed our presence in order to be able to achieve sleep. I wanted to ensure what what ever process we put in place for Olivia it was supportive and did not put her under any unnecessary upset or stress after she had been so unwell. Laura was so considerate throughout our consultation around how I wanted to approach our sleep issues. She provided a comprehensive plan of action to slowly breakdown all sleep associations so Olivia had the ability to achieve sleep independently. In the first few days I was sceptical as nothing had worked in the past but Laura’s advice was working like a dream. My daughter now falls asleep independently, and wakes once if anything. At no point we’re there tears and this was so important to me. I honestly can’t thank Laura enough. She has well and truly changed our lives and definitely saved my sanity!

Nanny Amies is a God send!!! I was a very tired mummy and the end of her tether and she’s literally turned everything around for us. My 8 month daughter used to sleep through but then hit her sleep regression, and even us cuddling her wouldn’t get her to sleep as she would just get frustrated. Her naps have always been terrible, and I used to have to rock her to sleep, to the point I used to dread nap time. Nanny Amies was recommended to me and I chose the remote package due to lockdown. She got me to explain in detail our situation and the issues we were having. You need to be VERY honest with her, bad habits and all, she won’t judge, she just needs to understand fully what’s going on. She then educated my husband and I on why our baby was acting the way she was and some of the psychology behind her actions. You think you know your baby but when you have an insight into their thought process everything becomes clearer. When you understand something you have so much more patience so I saw this as Nanny Amies training us, so that we could then train our daughter. She then gave us two options of sleep training to pick from. Neither was cry it out. And we picked the one we were most comfortable with. Each method was very detailed and written out step by step. This gave me the confidence, that no matter what happened when we first started, I would know how to deal with it. In the end I had a few more questions and Nanny Amies was happy to answer as I went along. It felt like she was actually there with me, coaching me along, keeping me strong. Our daughter responded very quickly to the training and now she sleeps 11 and half hours a night, no wake ups! And she now naps longer than 40 mins, no tears! It’s been life changing for us. I just lay her down and she puts herself to sleep. I would NEVER have believed that possible. Everything is better as we are all getting more sleep and I am so much more relaxed and confident when it comes to her sleep. I truly cannot recommend Nanny Amies enough, to me she is a super hero!

Laura has helped us so much, and got our nights back for adult time. I attended Laura’s sleep webinar and was lucky enough to win a phone call with Laura. She took details from me beforehand and then tailored the advise to our family. Her advice worked amazingly and we went from co-sleeping with our 4 year old who went to sleep when we did to him being happy and content in his own bed and going to sleep every night by 8 giving us some much needed adult time. I follow Laura on social media and always love her advice. She is amazing and I would recommend to anyone needing help or guidance. Laura made me realise I wasn’t such a bad mum after all ?
