The Parenting by Connection approach helps to improve the lives of parents and children by nurturing the parent and child connection. When children feel connected, they learn readily, love easily, and become caring leaders among their peers and fully access their intelligence and ability. When children's behaviour goes off track, they are asking for closeness, connection and understanding.
In the group you will learn new tools for understanding children's behaviour, and how to create a warm cooperative relationship with your child. Some of the topics covered are tantrums, sleep, separation, fear, anger, aggression and eating.
Parents are also supported and have the safety to offload feelings that interfere with their ability to guide their children with love and sensible limits. Listening partnerships and support groups help parents relieve stress and build self understanding.
