Beginning in August, 2021, I will be facilitating two new small groups using the book, Real Love In Parenting for parents of young children--birth to ages 10 years. You may be thinking:
"I don't know if I have time for this."
"I am already juggling too many things."
"What would I gain from committing to a parenting small group?"
"How is this different than other parenting material that I have read or studied?"
I have been focusing on parenting for over 30 years--as an educator and a parent myself--using many different programs and resources. Five years ago, I discovered the Real Love series by Greg Baer, M.D. and it has changed my concept of how to be a loving person and parent and enhanced my parenting education. Using Real Love in Parentingin small groups creates accountability, belonging and support to learn and explore together the following topics:
Understand that our children behave "badly" when they don't feel accepted and loved.
Learn to address the real issue of the need for unconditional love instead of dealing with the symptoms of acting out, temper tantrums and talking back which are their reaction to the pain of feeling empty, alone and afraid.
Recognize that a family culture filled with unconditional love, belonging and connection is the best foundation for happiness and future success.
Realize that I can't give what I don't have and I need to find Real Love for myself--this small group provides the opportunity to find the love and acceptance we all need.
Discover that parenting our children is the ultimate opportunity to re-parent ourselves.
on Thursday evenings 6-7:30 pm PDT/Friday morning 10-11:30 am JST/KST, First session--8/19 or 8/20 KST/JST
on Wednesday evenings at 7-8:30 pm PDT, First session--8/18
There is a $200 fee for both parents ($150 for one parent) for the ten sessions (every other week) and this includes one private coaching session with me, if you desire it. There will be a maximum number in the small group in order to allow enough time for each participant to share. Please sign up and pay below. I look forward to creating this opportunity to share and grow together.
