About Freedom Families
Freedom Families is all about empowering parents to have more fun whilst raising children in a way that equips them to succeed in later life. It was founded by Rebecca Pinkewich.
I’ve been married to Adrian for 10 years and together we have two children, a puppy, an accounting practice and a passion
My involvement with Love and Logic® began in 2012 when my eldest daughter turned two years old. My sweet, compliant and happy baby turned into a fiercely independent, strong-willed and emotional toddler. I had a newborn son thrown into the mix at the same time, and I found myself frazzled, stressed-out, and searching desperately for some tools that would help me keep my cool when my kids lost theirs!
I discovered that, unlike many parenting philosophies, Love and Logic® techniques equipped me with practical strategies that I could start experimenting with immediately – and that actually worked – and continue to work as my children have grown. I soon discovered that over one million parents had been trained in the Love and Logic® philosophy of parenting, yet few Australians were aware of its existence. In 2012, I became a Trained Independent Facilitator of the Love and Logic Early Childhood Parenting Made Fun!™ curriculum, flying to Colorado for training with the Love and Logic Institute. We then began offering this course to parents in the Hills District of Sydney.
In 2016, I extended our course offering to the Parenting the Love and Logic Way™ curriculum and began to see many families start to enjoy the benefits of using these simple yet effective techniques in their own homes.
I am passionate about seeing families transformed – where parents enjoy their children, homes are a place of peace and refuge, and children are guided into adulthood by experiencing increasing responsibility through decision-making and problem solving. I started Freedom Families as a way to do this, and look forward to sharing the journey with you.
