Peaceful Parenting: An Effective, Relationship-Building Approach

 

Are you interested in learning about an evidence-based parenting approach that focuses on creating a life-long emotional connection with your children? Are you tired of feeling horrible after losing your cool with your children?

This online workshop introduces the three components of peaceful parenting which focus on strengthening our relationships with our children rather than controlling their behaviors.

 

We will address:

  • anger management and mindful practices
  • the importance of connected moments
  • effective limit setting skills

 

Participants will have the opportunity to put peaceful parenting in practice with the top 5 challenging behaviors of young children. Helpful resources will be available in addition to time for personal questions.

Supporting Sibling Relationships

 

“I wish we could return the baby.” “He always gets more than me.” “It’s MINE!” “It’s not my fault, he started it!”

 

If you are a parent or caregiver of more than one child, you have most likely heard a few of these comments shared between siblings. Conflict between siblings may be unavoidable and inevitable but parents can learn simple solutions to gradually improve sibling relationships. This workshop will include an overview to spacing, birth order, and temperament, tools to prevent rivalry and jealousy, strategies to build sibling bonding, suggestions how to decrease competition and fights over possessions, and how best to intervene during challenging moments. Helpful resources will be available in addition to time for personal questions.

 

This workshop is appropriate for parents & loving caregivers of children from the newborn period – elementary years.
