What ages should my child be if I want to participate? Ages 12 and up!

 Are you interested in learning ways to meaningfully connect to, communicate with, and discipline your children? Do you find yourself constantly yelling at and nagging your children without many results? Do you want to parent in ways that foster a sense of resiliency as well as guard your child against anxiety and depression? If so, then this class is the perfect opportunity for you to learn how to impact your child's behavior positively--by connecting to their heart! When your child feels loved and respected, they will respond with love and respect. "Too often we forget that discipline means to teach, not to punish. A disciple is a student, not a recipient of behavioral consequences." - Dan Siegel

Within the program, we will explore practical ways to foster positive relationships with your child in order to open avenues for connection and empathy, as well as ways to discipline that work and leave you and your child feeling good when you're done. This group will help support you as you work to empower your children and discipline them. The first hour of the class will be teaching with the remaining  hour open for questions and practical application!
