Planted Parenting was founded in 2017, by Tricia Lerk when she saw a gap for parents and educators needing support to guide and teach children with challenging behaviours. From a place of social media bombarding us with opinions and judgement rather than evidence based support, Planted Parenting was created to encourage more positivity in homes around the world.
Hi! I'm Trish, wife and mum of two children and I have personally faced the challenges of physical disability and behavioural challenges.
My commitment is to get the very best out of the children that have been entrusted to you, to empower you to feel confident in parenting, and to help your child to feel as though they belong and can contribute to this world. I am a passionate advocate for a child's rights, and to support families in making the most of the funding or funds they have to help their child. My passion fuels my work ethic, so you will always get 100% of my effort.
