I have written this new Back-to-School Sanity Savers e-book for, and dedicated it to, today’s time-starved busy parents – that’s most of you! You are raising your children with less time and energy than any previous generation of parents ever has, but your parenting role is just as big and important, if not more so, than it ever was.

Prepare yourself and your family for going back-to-school

It is for pre- and primary school parents to help you with every new beginning, whether it’s a new school year or a new term.

What’s in it?

  • 12 short chapters each focusing on a specific sanity saver that will save you time, energy and your sanity
  • 3 exclusive podcasts recorded for this book
  • 6 downloadable templates to help with your daily and weekly planning (to do lists, shopping lists, meal planning, media planning for kids, etc)
  • 10 of my favourite family recipes.


Your “Parenting on the run” workshop was extremely well received by the attending women, many of whom provided positive feedback and felt that they had gained useful insight into how they might spend guilt free quality time with their kids. I believe they benefited from knowing that they are not alone. Thank you for your entertaining and enriching contribution to our women’s group.

It was a delight to have Nikki Bush present at our Annual Spring Parent Seminar! Her presentation focused on how to future proof your child and be a tech-savvy parent. Our participants found her to be both engaging and encouraging. Her use of both visuals and games were a big success. The feedback we have received has been positive because the information was relevant and inspiring. It was a pleasure working with Nikki, and I would recommend her talent and work to others.

Nikki, thank you for spending an evening with myself, my staff and parents of the SAHETI pre-primary and playschool. Your talk ‘Future-proof Your Child’ was both inspiring and terrifying. There were times when I wanted to put my hands over my ears to prevent myself from hearing and times when I sat at the edge of my chair riveted.”We at SAHETI have understood for a long time that we are educating our children for an uncertain future, but we did not realize that that ‘future’ is already here. The message we heard from you was clear ‘if we fight it we will drown’ but what you also hold to be true, and what we at SAHETI live by – is that HOPE lives with the family. Thank you for such a thought provoking and hopeful message.

Finally a course with practical ideas I could use! I really enjoyed listening to your talk on how to make the most of the time we have with our precious children. It reminded me of the games I use to play as a little child with no T.V. play stations, DVD, computers etc. I also liked the fact the you understand that we, as parents, lead busy lives so your suggestions of using bath/cooking/car times are most effective. My kids argue less and laugh more! All parents would benefit from listening to your practical. fun, effective and educational ideas. Ideas easy enough to implement whilst “on the run!”
