Welcome To The La La Tigers blog

A glorious collection of musings from founder and MaMa TIger, Rachel Davis. Because perspective is everything.

The one thing you can do to become a better parent today.

Too many times I see mums giving their all at the expense of themselves. Self love is not a feeling, it's a behaviour and if you don't prioritise your own wellbeing and happiness, then the mothership is going down. You have to put your needs first before you can serve others.

Music is a universal language

music parenting Feb 10, 2020

Music. The only language that needs no translation. It crosses race, sex, geography and more often than not carries the message of emotions.

It fuels nostalgia, memories and can even conjure up smells. Just one bar of a song and we can be transported in our minds...and we remember ALL the words.

That’s because the brain loves patterns. It loves rhymes and rhythms...and if you put a tune to it, you’re singing it all day right? Sometimes whether you want to or not .

What a wonderful vehicle then to teach our children. From picking up their pants  (free workshop in the link)  to much deeper and more intentional messages, the language of music goes and stays in, like simply nothing else can  to much deeper and more intentional messages, the language of music goes and stays in, like simply nothing else can.

And that's because the brain loves patterns. It loves chinking things up into rhymes and rhythms. But if you add in fun and make it a shared activity...

Your child is not difficult



If a child is struggling to be present, are they really being difficult at three years old? The moment we label them as difficult, we are judging them. It helps to take a step back and see what's really going on. It may be that they need help with their emotional wellbeing...perhaps, instead of being difficult, they're having a difficult time.

You have to take care of yourself first



Sometimes we reach a breaking point, but that point can become a point of transformation when we decide to do the work on ourselves. When we heal ourselves, and put our self care first, then we can raise secure and confident kids.

Balancing motherhood and work

motherhood values work Feb 09, 2020



When we become parents it changes everything; when we're also working we need to consider logistics, work flexibility and parenting. Spend time getting clear on what your priorities are, it helps to write a list of personal values and to get really clear on your top five. This will help you with meeting the demands of work and parenting, while making time for both your needs and the emotional needs of your child.

Coal into Diamonds.

parenting wellbeing Feb 06, 2020

Parenting. What a journey.

The highs, the lows, the hissing of swear words into the fridge, the random socks EVERYWHERE!  (Always on my kitchen worktop...why?)

If you’d have told me back then what it entailed, or that I would now be doing it completely on my own, I might not have done it at all. But without my personal struggles and the vertical learning curve of bringing up 2 children alone, I would not now be writing the songs that I do, to help parents out and to make kids believe they can. I wouldn’t be showing up to serve the world in a bigger, bolder way. And I wouldn’t be the sparkly and joyous being that I am now.  I wouldn’t be fierce and I wouldn't love my life and my work.

You see it’s only through sheer amounts of pressure that carbon turns coal into diamonds.

Without my experiences, I would probably still be a little lump of coal - but now because of what I have learned, I have transformed my life and now choose to teach other...
