Welcome To The La La Tigers blog

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


It seems that everybody I come across in my work is looking to be a better version of themselves; they want to have the most incredible relationship with their children.

It’s a universal thing. But here’s the thing – you cannot have an incredible connection with your children if you do not have an incredible relationship and connection with yourself.

What is self love?

Emotional wellness is vital

Self love practices; everyone talks about self love, self esteem, self worth, self acceptance, emotional wellbeing, filling your cup. You know these things, but are you doing them? Are you meditating, dancing, journaling, writing, painting, singing, performing, creating, being in nature, spending adult time with friends? Are you doing any of the things that light you up and feed your soul?




Learning to love yourself more

No one is coming to save you, nobody’s going to do this for you. If you’ve reached this point in your life and think there has to be a better way, there is! And it comes from ways of thinking and ways of feeling. Compassion for others require compassion for self, especially as mothers. Compassion for yourself, self acceptance, self love. When you’ve filled your cup and are taking care of your health and wellbeing; eaten good food, not drunk two bottles of wine. When you’re getting enough...

The Art of Raising Happy, Confident Children

Happiness. Inner strength. Confidence. Self-belief. Self Worth. All the things that will have the biggest affect on your child’s life.
These things come from ways of thinking and ways of being that can be learned in our adult life. But what if we didn’t have to learn it at all? What if it was our default setting? Just the way we were?
You see the perceptions we form about ourselves, about the world, about who we think we are capable of, happen during the imprinting stage, which is before age 7.
These ‘beliefs’ form our subconscious programme and become the engine that drives most of our thoughts, which trigger our emotions on autopilot, for the rest of our lives.
These beliefs are so strong, our brains will actively look for evidence to support them and discount evidence that doesn’t.
So if you believe you are not good enough, not only will you look for evidence to support that, you will even...

Survival or Growth?


As far as I'm concerned there are only two energies, there's fear and there's love.

At LaLa Tigers I'm passionate about helping children and parents understand that and helping them move beyond fear so they can thrive -- because you're either in survival -- or you're in growth.

Single Parenting after a Toxic Relationship

There can be nothing more damaging to a child than the ending of a toxic relationship between the parents,  especially if one of the parents does not have the child's best interest at heart, such as with narcissists or sociopaths.  Given that it can take years to finally pluck up the courage to leave a toxic relationship, when you finally make it to freedom, it can be a tough pill to swallow to find that not only will you never be truly free, your beautiful and wondrous child, who you most probably left to protect, will now be used to manipulate, control and hurt you further.  In fact many there are many mothers who stay in the relationship way longer than they should, simply to avoid having to send their children to the man that may well have systematically abused them and potentially their children for many years.  After years of gaslighting and emotional abuse, breaking free and reclaiming yourself and your mental health must be a priority,  if you want...

Single mum transforms her life and empowers others through music.

If you’d have told me 6 years ago that I would be full time single parenting, homeschooling, relocating, doing a TEDx talk and would be running an online business doing something I loved, I would have laughed in your face.  I was a big hot mess. I’d just come out of a long term abusive relationship, my kids and I were all over the place and I was singing “Wheels on the bus” in a village hall to preschoolers. But here’s the thing ...  I knew I was capable of more. When I decided to take my music sessions online just to escape my physical location, I had to face all of my fear, doubt and insecurity. Did I nail it all? No! I still have many fears, I just got really good at facing them. I grew strong. I learned techniques and mindset. I took control of my racing thoughts and I did a shed load of work on my emotional health. And then suddenly, wheels on the bus just wasn’t going to cut it anymore. I knew I had to teach children what I’d...

Solution focussed children


When we consciously shift our children from the problem to the solution, we create a habit. A habit that starts to teach our children to start to shift out of the problem and on to the solution, which is essential for a healthy mind and wellbeing, for what we focus on expands.

Forget learning and focus on your child's wellbeing instead.

As many parents face sending their younger children back to school in uncertain times, I cannot help but wonder how much focus will be on the children's mental and emotional wellbeing and how much will be on getting them back to "normal," or catching up with the check boxes of curriculum needed, to get them back to where they "should" be.

Given the global and traumatic events of the last few months, it would be naive to assume that children can just go straight back to learning, without addressing the anxiety and emotional distress, that may well be held inside their bodies and their minds.  Let alone any stress suffered as their parents struggled to work and "homeschool."

Seeing their families frightened, changing routines, removing them from their friends and possibly even losing someone they loved will have a profound effect on how they think and feel about themselves, others and indeed the the world.  With negativity pouring from every news broadcast, even if they are...

Introducing Gratitude to your Pre-Schooler

Mental and emotional wellbeing within families has never been so important and one of the simplest ways to increase this is through bringing gratitude into your daily lives.

For anyone familiar with a gratitude practise, it needs no explanation, but others may question why gratitude is so important for a child's wellbeing.  Well, regular gratitude is strongly linked with increased mental health, well-being and long term happiness and it allows our children to get some control over how they feel.   Now I don't know about you, but those are all things I most definitely want for my children. 

Practising gratitude works because all thoughts and emotions, as with everything in our world, are really just forms of energy and all emotions have a vibrational frequency.  And one that can be measured.  I'm sure it won't surprise you to hear that fear, anger, shame and indeed all negative feelings, are all at the low end of the chart.  Whereas peace, joy and...
