Parenting for Strong Family Connection

June 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Our children are so important to us, yet sometimes we struggle to parent in ways we feel truly good about. This 8-week class will help you with the following:

  • Understanding the needs behind your children’s behavior;
  • Parenting effectively without relying on the threat of punishment or promise of rewards;
  • Transforming power struggles into opportunities for building connection and trust;
  • Discovering a quality of connection that will sustain your family through life’s challenges;
  • Working with your children to find solutions that meet both your needs;
  • Teaching your children a skill they will use their whole lives – how to resolve conflicts in peaceful and satisfying ways.

Classes will take place on June 12, 19, 26, July 10, 17, 24, 31 and August 7. For more information or to register, contact Judyburrill@com-matters.com or visit com-matters.com.

This program is sponsored by Communication Matters and will be led by Judy Burrill. Burrill has a Master’s degree in education from Cornell and has completed the Center for Nonviolent Communication’s Parent Peer Leadership Program, a part of the Peaceful Families, Peaceful World Project. She has also completed hundreds of hours of NVC trainings, led numerous classes and workshops, and been a mediator for the Community Dispute Resolution Center since 2006.

This class has no religious affiliations.
