While we love children, it can be difficult to discuss their behavior (and ways to address that behavior) while those children are present.  For this reason, please try to make other arrangements for all children, with the exception of babies-in-arms who will not be distracting to you.
Parenting (and teaching!) is hard. But when we replace conventional adult-child power dynamics with collaboration, family life gets easier today—and we create a better world for all of us in the future.

Research-based parenting educator Jen Lumanlan offers a simple yet revolutionary framework for rethinking our relationships with children. This new approach helps us to look beneath challenging behaviors to find and meet children’s needs, and ours too—perhaps for the first time in our lives. It involves empathetic listening, understanding feelings and underlying needs, and problem-solving with our children to find solutions to conflicts that work for everyone.

Family life becomes radically easier in the short term because behavior problems tend to melt away. In the long term, we’ll raise children who confidently advocate for themselves and treat others with profound respect.

In the workshop we'll use examples drawn from your real life to support you in finding strategies that work for both you and for your child - so your child stops doing the things that drive you up the wall.

Everyone will leave with a better understanding of the reasons why their child is doing things the parent/teacher finds difficult, and how to meet everyone's needs much more often.  

Family (and classroom) life gets dramatically easier - today!
