This cohort customized for parents who grew up in families that did not provide models for the type of relationships they want with their own kids. We’ll spend extra time on understanding the impact of our family of origin on our parenting practice, how our experiences as children impact our ability to set limits and boundaries as adults, and how to cultivate self-compassion as we chart a different path.
Each week I’ll present on a foundational parenting topic. Afterwards, I’ll facilitate a discussion and answer questions about how to work on implementing these ideas in your own home, with a focus on interpersonal communication as a couple. Please note that this group is primarily intended for parents with children under age 8 and most concerns will be related to that age group, although any parents are welcome and the last planned session includes an oft-requested eye towards the future.
While there is a presentation and teaching aspect to group coaching, the format is flexible and responsive with opportunities to share your questions and feedback each week to shape the following week’s discussion. The personality and character of each cohort is unique, and the atmosphere is one of support and encouragement!
