What to Do Instead: Guiding Kids with Empathy and Trust
As parents, we want to raise the kind of people that can not only be functioning members of society, but can tackle the big problems the current generation is failing to solve. We know that the old ways of harsh discipline and unrealistic expectations don’t work anymore (and may not have been very good in the first place). So what do we do instead?
Join me for this 2-hour workshop and learn positive, effective ways to guide your children. Who knows, you may even find your entire parenting paradigm shifting.

De-Stressing Dinner: Strategies for Filling Kids with Love

Raising Rebels: Moving Beyond the Goal of Obedience
We don’t need more obedient adults. We don’t need another generation of people who were taught to color inside the lines and think inside the box. We won’t survive it.
So why is so much of the child rearing and discipline advice being given to parents (often uninvited) still geared to teach children to be compliant and obedient? Much of that advice comes from a place of mistrust in the inherent goodness of humanity, and flat-out fear. And it serves to preserve the power dynamics that are serving our species and our planet so poorly. Let’s teach our kids to (respectfully) question authority, think for themselves, and imagine a way to live in the world that is not only more sustainable, but also more equitable, just and peaceful. I know that sometimes we just want our kids to do what we say, because we are overwhelmed, but if we change the way we look at them and learn some new skills, we can raise the kind of rebels who will change the world – and – who we will enjoy living with!
Join me for this 2-hour workshop and learn strategies for raising healthy, resilient humans with the authenticity, agency, compassion and courage that the future stewards of our planet need to have.
