Self-care is a gift that has positive effects on your entire family. If six weeks of parenting support and inspiration are just what you need, then I want to invite you to join our next Tele-Class, Joyful Days with Toddler & Preschoolers, which is starting on May 31st. The class gives you lots of tools for the nitty-gritty of daily interactions: How to get out the door in the morning. How to help bedtimes go smoothly. What to do when a simple request is met be defiance: when do you insist, when do you try to convince, and when do you drop the request? After this class, you’ll be able to respond with confidence, in ways that support your relationship with your child, rather than undermining it. During the six weeks, you’ll try the tools and you’ll report back what has worked for your family, and what hasn’t. With suggestions from me and support from your classmates, you’ll have the time to tweak things until you figure out what works for you, and what works for your children.
What makes this class so powerful is that in addition to the nitty-gritty tools, you’ll also be getting a new picture of what makes parent-toddler relationships healthy. You’ll be able to approach power struggles from a new place of compassion as your child learns to go from being the center of the universe (as all babies are) to being half of a pair where both people’s desires count; you’ll be able to support your children as they learn to be responsive to you. In addition, you’ll have the tools to discriminate between your child’s needs and his wants, enabling you to say “yes” to the needs (even if it’s in a different way than he originally asked) and help your child recover from disappointment when whims are denied.

Here’s what some folks have shared:
From a Parent: “Thank you so much for this wonderful class! The truth is I couldn’t really afford the course, but something told me this might be just what was needed to get me out of a sort of negative rut with my toddler. I was becoming so frustrated with her challenging behavior that I questioned my parenting ability daily! I can honestly report that the class did not disappoint, and was worth every penny. Your valuable experience, suggestions, ideas, and enthusiasm truly helped me to remember how joyful life with a toddler really is. Thank you.”
And from a Caregiver: “What you have to say on connecting is beyond profound…I have bonded with [the kids in my care] so much more in one week than I have in the past year. It has been absolutely amazing.”
