Most of us have a complicated relationship with parenting. It's really important to us, to our children, and to the world! It's hard. We are learning so much about emotions that just wasn't understood years ago, and it's confusing to parent our children in emotionally competent ways when we weren't parented that way.
If you're feeling overwhelmed or confused by parenting, join the club!
What's important is not that we do a perfect job, that's, of course, impossible. Instead, my work helps parents to be curious about the 'why' underlying children's behavior, to understand the work of childhood and where are children are in their development, and to create solutions that respond wisely to our children's needs. Over time, parents strengthen connection, communication, and trust with their children.
Parenting Your Anxious Child, a half-day workshop
A supportive, practical, judgement-free workshop that explores why children feel anxious and how we can minimize anxiety triggers. Learning to parent in (sometimes counterintuitive) ways can help children feel connected and safe.
(This workshop has nothing to do with diagnosing or ‘fixing’, it is designed to help parents support their anxious children with subtle but important shifts in parenting style.)
