We are on a mission to help parents discover and master new ways of parenting...

from young children through to young adults.


Hi, I'm ​Amanda Staniford and I am an Expansion Coach. I love life and people and in particular young people! I am very passionate about taking people from their current point in life and giving them the tools to become the best possible version of themselves, that they were created to be.


I have an extensive and holistic background in education, developmental coaching and the arts. I made the decision to work for myself when I started my family twenty years ago. I wanted to explore my parenting and educational philosophies, which were quite different to the mainstream.


Twenty years on and many, many, ‘Rock Solid Kids’ created, I can honestly say that taking a step out in faith was the best decision I ever made. I see things differently and that is my strength! A strength that is required in a world where young people are challenged more than ever on a daily basis.

Hi I'm Tracey Beard and I am a Career Expert and Coach for young adults aged 16-25 years of age across New Zealand. I am changing the way that young adults explore their career and study options, through powerful and modern tools and personalised career coaching. 
Knowledge is power and when we know better, we do better. Our young adults are overwhelmed with career decisions, they are burdened about study debt and they are suffering the effects of anxiety like no generation before them.
I think differently about how to support these young adults through their career exploration - I advocate for them, build their awareness and partner with them (and their parents) as we reveal their exciting futures and help them embrace their uniqueness!
