Hi, I'm Win Harwood.
I help parents step into their power, to build their confidence and become the parent they had once envisioned for themselves.
I teach parents how to become leaders in their family - how to deeply connect with their children and raise children who want to cooperate. No I'm not kidding.
- No more yelling
- No more coaxing or nagging
- More peace
Become the parent everyone wants to be!
"Become the parent your child deserves and you were born to be."
Win is an award-winning parenting expert. Having spent much of her life studying child development and brain development in particular, Win has influenced thousands of parents to move away from the 'old way' of parenting, which she says "is as outdated as the typewriter," to a 'new way' that empowers big people to raise children who want to cooperate and want to learn how to become resilient, confident, competent and compassionate grown ups.
Her message is a message of hope. Known for her loving, non-judgemental approach, she inspires a self-affirming, amazing sense of “I can do this — it really works!”
She proves that by moving away from the Compliance Model to the Relationship Model, using practical strategies and making small changes, any parent can bypass overwhelm and self-doubt and instead feel joy, calm, and more ease as they move closer to building a relationship of love and trust that lasts a lifetime.
Her sound theory, dynamic style, humour, and her practical approach have made her a regular guest on radio and television.
Workshops, and Presentations
Win is well known as an inspiring, motivational speaker.
She has lectured nationally and internationally to audiences of parents, educators, health professionals, and business people on the topics of parenting, bullying, family relationships, managing difficult conversations, and balancing work and family.
"I wanted to let you know that my husband and I have had some very good success with some of the tips you gave us at the parenting seminar so far. What a difference this is making. There is less stress. We are forming strategies for dealing with problems and my husband and I are on the same team. No more good cop bad cop."

"I recently took your course and learned a lot of useful tips for working with my children. You should be proud of the work that you do and I am sure you have helped a lot of children through educating their parents. I wanted to thank you and let you know I really enjoyed the course."
- Michelle D. Reynolds
Barrister and Solicitor
"I heard Win speak for the first time in 1996. Since then she has helped me to make one of the most significant changes in my life. I have realized that I am not just some guy with a kid, but someone who has been given the gift of fatherhood — the opportunity and responsibility to nurture, love, and guide a beautiful child into adulthood.
A lot of friends and guys I know have people they look up to, strive to be like or admire — musicians, sports heroes or super heroes — but my hero is Win Harwood. Thank you Win."
