We will focus on the following skills
❀ How to practice self-care while caring for your child(ren)/family.
❀ How to transform anger into connection
❀ Empathic listening- how to hear what your child REALLY is trying to say, no matter how it is expressed
❀ How to stand clearly for our boundaries without using threat, punishment, or reward.
❀ And more . . .
The Connecting with Children course is for parents, teachers, grandparents – anyone who spends time with children. We will use Marshall Rosenberg’s “nonviolent communication” model (NVC). It will suit those with no previous experience with NVC, as well as those with experience who would like to deepen their focus while using NVC with children.
* The course provides a child-free learning environment to honour many students’ needs for focus, concentration, relaxation and learning.
