This intimate workshop will delve deeply into values based parenting practices – where REAL Parenting and Teaching workshop left off (although, it is not necessary to have attended the first one to get something out of this one). This workshop will offer very specific tools and strategies to help participants parent from goals and values and not fears and fantasies. Reflecting upon what matters most to us, and striving to make these values visible within our interactions, our choices and our environment, will set the foundation for reliable, responsive, loving parenting. Space is limited to 45 participants.
