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.
