DIY Nanny

Raising Kind & Capable Kids

DIY Nanny is a confidential mobile parent coaching service run by Jill Belton, who helps put the fun, routine & calm into your parenting and restore peace in your home.

DIY Nanny Beginnings

DIY Nanny was born in response to the cry of many a weary mum's heart – 'I wish I had a nanny!' Kindergarten training, and many years working as a nanny putting that training into practise, gave me a firm foundation on which to base my own parenting. DIY Nanny is a platform from which I can encourage parents, and [...]

Jill Belton – Owner DIY Nanny

As a qualified kindergarten teacher with over 25 years’ experience working with children (including many years working as a nanny in NZ and overseas and 17 years parenting my own four children) I have had the privilege of working with many different families to resolve parenting woes.

My experience has taught me that fun and structure are vital ingredients in successful parenting. A little bit of structure is necessary to provide the boundaries your child needs to gain the most from their early developmental years. What that structure is depends on the individual needs of each family which is why I work in partnership with you to put in place strategies which will be effective for you, your child and family.

Testimonials

Read messages from some of Jill’s happy clients.

I have 5 children ranging in age from 4 to 15, boys and a girl. Jill Belton and her DIYnanny resources have been part of my journey as a mum for quite a few years. She has the wonderful ability to hear the issues I am trying to deal with and then offer practical and often humorous strategies. Jill offers creative solutions to family struggles from a healthy holistic view that includes mental, emotional, spiritual and practical perspectives. I have been using Jill’s DIYnanny reward/follow up cards for the last 4 months and it has taken me from being a mum who was often just reminding, then threatening and being frustrated, to having a way of encouraging good behaviour. The DIYnanny cards are also a quick easy tool for me to give consequences that actually are often funny but effective. I cannot recommend Jill strongly enough, she is a 100% fantastic coach who can point you in the right direction and give you hope for better relationships!
Laura, Mother of 5
My 5 month old son had severe reflux and as a result we had got into some pretty bad sleeping habits. We did whatever worked to stop him screaming and to get a little bit of sleep. I was constantly on edge waiting for him to wake again. When his reflux was under control Jill helped put him in a daytime routine to get him used to self-settling and sleeping for longer stretches. She made sure I was comfortable with the plan before we proceeded. Jill was honest and told me that he may cry, but with her method he is given lots of reassurance and support to go to sleep on his own. It took 2 days and he was sleeping up to 2.5 hours which he had never done before! We carried on with the routine, and when he was in the swing of it we tried it in the night time. After one night she had him sleeping through the night! Jill was fantastic, so supportive and gentle in her approach. She was flexible and fitted in with our family and made it work for us. I would recommend her to anyone who needed help with getting their baby into a better routine and helping with sleep issues.
Nicky, Well Rested Mum
As my son has grown I’ve faced various challenges that left me feeling insecure and ineffective. At every stage Jill has helped me with kind, simple and safe solutions. Her advice has given me confidence and security as a mother and today this is reflected in my child’s secure and confident behaviour. That, to me, is worth more than gold.
Alison, Confident Mum
Thanks Jill for all your positive, creative, structured and intelligent ideas!
You are such a help and inspiration to stay on track and raise our kids in a healthy way to be productive and our best self we could be.
Amy, Thankful Mum

Outcomes Card Sets

You get to keep your cool, and your child has to choose a card from the pack and do the task or activity.
They don’t know what they’re going to get, but whatever it is, it’ll give both of you time to calm down and reassess the situation.
There’s also a chance they might get the Mercy card, and escape a consequence – this makes it slightly fun!

On the plus side, there’s a Reward Pack for when you want to encourage their good choices.

There are two packs to choose from – the Junior Pack for 3yr – 10yr olds, and the Teen Pack for 10yrs +

You get ten printed cards, and 5 blank ones for you to write your own ideas on.

Give them a go!

YES! I NEED A SET
Consequence cards for teens have really made a difference for me and my daughter. I am a solo parent living with extended family and consistent boundaries have been challenging for us. The consequence cards have been a life-changing tool to enable both my parents and myself work together to introduce boundaries in a healthy way that doesn’t damage relationship. I have noticed a great improvement in attitude and a willingness to accept consequences that wasn’t there before. The rewards cards bring balance and are a wonderful tool for regular encouragement too! I highly recommend the cards as an excellent tool for shaping character and bringing correction without rejection. Instead of escalating anger or anxiety around discipline between myself/Grandparents and my daughter we are able to deal with the
behaviour in a fair and fun way and then talk calmly and constructively about the issue. A great improvement!
