Our Story

In all started with a best selling book on Christian parenting: ‘Kweek kinders met Karakter‘ by Hettie Brittz. She later published the English version: ‘Growing Kids with Character’ and two more titles followed: ‘Respectable Parents, Respectful Kids’ and ‘Compassionate Discipline.’ (Unfortunately you won’t find these books on this website, but we are in the process to negotiate the right to sell the e-books – please contact us if you would like to be on the waiting list.)

We know everybody can’t read these books… some might struggle to find a copy, some don’t like reading because they process info differently (we understand different personality types) and most parents do not have the time to read. Whatever your reason, we have you covered: The content from these books were converted to videos, audio files, practical exercises and handy tools to enable more parents to access the life-changing information and advice – right at your finger tips! All the products on this website are digital and that means that no parcels are being send by courier and you have access to your purchases as soon as payment is processed. All your purchases is available on your profile (protected by your password) to watch or listen to as many times as you need.

The website is owned and managed by Lydia Kies and Nanette Oosthuizen. The team’s mission is to develop new content to empower and equip parents. Our own experience, talents and skills are implemented to create digital products that are user-friendly, available 24hours a day, affordable and very practical. Most of the content on this website is the intellectual property of Hettie Brittz and she receives royalties.
