The parenting advice that Google gives us is one size fits all techniques, and that is often why they are not successful. This six week program will introduce you to new techniques that are effective when teaching your kids. We will learn “head and heart” smart strategies that will calm you down and change the way that you parent.

The goal is to help you to create a home that is safer, more peaceful, and fun for everyone.

Join us as we discuss these topics listed below:
1) Connecting with our children while we are connected with our phones
2) Creating a home that is safe and secure for our kids
3) The importance of self-care plays an important role in parenting
4) Setting proper boundaries when we are afraid that kids will never listen
5) Establishing effective early morning and before bed time routines
6) Answering questions that we did not cover in the first five sessions

The group is limited to ten individuals.
