Hello! I’m Jailan Heidar, a Positive Parenting Educator and founder of Early Years Parenting. Originally from Cairo, Egypt, my family moved to Munich in the Spring of 2016 after 8 years in Amsterdam. I’m a mom of two little munchkins who keep me learning from them and practicing Positive Parenting every day.
My journey with Positive Parenting started over ten years ago. You can read more about that here. I was truly lucky to stumble on my first Positive Discipline course early on! The results of learning those positive techniques was transforming and forever life changing: it set me on a path and career of spreading these amazing positive parenting strategies to others.
Since then I’ve worked with families helping them understand Positive Parenting and how use it in their daily lives to bring more harmony, peace and confidence to their parenting. How? I not only have master’s degree in Child and Family Studies specializing in child-parent attachment but I am also certified as a Positive Discipline Parent Educator and an Early Childhood Educator.
As an expat mother myself in Munich, I know what it’s like to be raising your child with no or limited family support. That’s why in 2012 I started Early Years Parenting -a community for families interested in making Positive Parenting part of their daily life . I’m happy to have moved my work supporting parenting to Munich where I provide workshops, online courses and personal consults on parenting young children using Positive Parenting. I also invite you to join our closed Facebook group for Munich families. This is a safe place offering support and advice for Munich families interested in Positive Parenting.
A nerd at heart, my workshops and advice are all research and evidence-based. My aim is to transform the latest in parenting and family research for into practical and relatable parenting strategies you can immediately use. Coming from a culturally and ethnically diverse family with members from Egypt, Sweden and USA, I also have a broad understanding of people’s different points of view. I bring that knowledge with me to my workshops and sessions. My goal isn’t to tell you what to do but to provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to support you in deciding what’s best for your unique family.
