Positive Discipline


If we listen closely, our children's behavior is often telling us something....a feeling, need, wish. Learn to listen deeply to better understand your children and respond in a way that models compassion and setting appropriate expectations and limits.  As parents, we can be intentional about how we interact, what we model, and how we discipline with the goal of giving our children the tools to make good choices.  



Helping Kids Cope


We are facing uncertain and challenging times. In response, some children have big, intense feelings and act out, and others may withdraw, experience sleep difficulties, or struggle to complete schoolwork and everyday tasks.  Learn ways to stay connected with your child and to call upon your compassionate side while helping them release their feelings in helpful ways and cope with the new stresses families face.
