Class Series starting again in August, 2013
THIS POPULAR SERIES IS BACK! Dates TBD: starting in August, 2013 Cost: $140 based on the book by Pam Leo
This series is geared toward toddlers through 6th grade, though the practices can be used with any age, even with adults!
Are you stumped by what to do when your child openly defies you? Or throws a temper tantrum in the middle of the store? Do you feel you’re losing co-operation with your kids as they get older? Then join me as I walk you through what’s going on in your child to cause these behaviors and what you can do to right the relationship.
Connection Parenting is a comprehensive parenting series for parents, grandparents, teachers, nannies, child caregivers and anyone who would like to create strong, loving bonds with the children in their lives. Based on Pam Leo’s book, Connection Parenting, this course gets to the heart of what it takes for families to thrive and be happy and healthy.
Your bond or connection with your child is your most powerful parenting tool. The level of cooperation you get from your child is usually equal to the level of connection your child feels with you. Come learn how to strengthen that connection and increase your effectiveness as a parent.
Instead of yelling, nagging, and doling out consequences, wouldn’t you rather be spending your precious time and energy building a relationship foundation with your child that will carry you through adolescence, the teen years…and beyond?
“I will recommend this class to every parent I know! The benefits are too numerous to list here but I will say although much of my life was a rehearsal for parenting as the oldest of multiple siblings and cousins, this course transformed my life.” — Julia W.

7 Keys to Turn Family Conflict into Co-operation–8 weeks
Dates TBD: starting in August, 2013
Cost: $178 (includes book)
based on the book by Sura Hart and Victoria Kindle Hodson
This book study group (with engaging exercises and class discussions) introduces 7 keys to unlock and inspire specific parenting capacities. These capacities include parenting with a purpose clearly in mind, looking beyond behavior to the needs that motivate it, and actively choosing structures and practices that fulfill one’s purposes and intentions.
This book study will go beyond quick-fix parenting and disciplinary techniques and provide a foundation of communication and relationship skills that dramatically improve the quality of parent-child relationships.
The last session will include a live Q&A (via Skype) with one of the book’s authors and may be at a different time (i.e. in the evening) in order to accommodate the authors’ different time zone.
”This exceptional book is the ‘deepest dive’ I’ve ever found in cultivating genuine mutual respect between parents and children. The 7 Keys provide specific, well-documented exercises and practical strategies that address family challenges, opening doors that are often closed, and give everyone the freedom to really enjoy one another.” – Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
Dates TBD: starting in August, 2013
Cost: $30 (for Participant book and workbook) FREE intro series
based on the book by B. Bryan Post, www.postinstitute.com
This introductory series is offered F*R*E*E as a requirement for my training and certification to faciliate the Great Behavior Breakdown program.
This program is geared for families who are struggling with extreme behavior challenges, such as lying, stealing, and defiance.
When children exhibit disturbing or difficult behaviors, we often feel at a loss. We may seek professional help, but when that doesn’t work, what do we do? It can be very distressing, and many parents end up feeling there’s no hope. Families crumble under the pressure, and relationships are damaged. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The techniques learned in this introductory series have proven to be effective to decrease behaviors by 50% where a therapist or parent has implemented them consistently for at least two weeks.
”The Great Behavior Breakdown addresses the most difficult behaviors that parents can face. Like the best medicine, it addresses the root problems and not just the symptoms. We all love our children, but making that love real in the eye of the storm can be extremely challenging. This book will teach you about your own stress reactions, and how you can respond more effectively to your children from your own inner strength with compassionate understanding, rather than reacting out of your fear.” – Myla Kabat-Zinn, co-author of “Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting”
