Are you longing for more connection with the children in your life? You are invited to an 8-week, online, weekly course on Heart Centered Parenting facilitated by Susan Wildin, MD, CPC. I am a retired developmental behavioral pediatrician and a transformational life coach. I started my Nonviolent Communication journey in 2007.
I believe we can change the current parenting paradigms and improve our relationships and empower our children to make choices based on their needs and the needs of others rather than to gain a reward or avoid a punishment. We shift things by learning self-compassion (understanding what we want from our children and why), empathy (listening deeply to what the children want from us and why) and honest expression of our own needs.
Heart Centered Parenting is for parents of children of all ages, grandparents, educators and anyone else who has contact with children. We will meet online on Saturdays from 10:00 am-12:00 noon CDT from May 7 through June 25, 2022. Timing is flexible. If you are interested and you prefer different times, please let me know at the email below.
Sessions are designed to build on one another, and you can still participate if you need to miss one or more sessions. The format will be 1 hour of topical teaching and practice and one hour of role play with real life issues in each session.
Registration is required so you can have handouts and the Zoom invitation prior to the meeting. I request $180 for the 8 week course and any amount will be accepted gratefully. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to request a dialogue about the fee request or have any other questions.
