Peaceful Parenting Discussion Group– *Rescheduled due to snow*
Date: Friday, January 29th
Time: 4-6 pm
Where: Raw Learning
Are you seeking more joyful and harmonious relationships with your children?
If you are, come check out our discussion group that usually meets the 4th Friday of every month.
We meet to support one another as we explore and practice non-coercive parenting and consensual living. This is a parenting practice that values the wants and needs of everyone equally - regardless of age - and avoids power struggles through the creation of mutually agreeable solutions. This principle is also the key to harmony at Raw Learning.
We are all on our own unique paths as individuals, parents, and families.
We are reading and discussing Dr. Shefali Tsabary's The Conscious Parent.
You are welcome to come even if you didn't join for previous discussions. We listen to the chapter at the beginning of each Discussion Group. Parents are encouraged to think about what you have experienced and would like to share.
