This is a group all about putting parenting into practice with a foundation of maintaining a safe and trusting environment. We talk about parenting in action- what to actually do on a daily basis or in oddball situations. Is it okay to put him in time out? Is it okay to negotiate a deal? What do we do when she absolutely won't brush her teeth? Parenting is demanding and doesn't give us much free time, but this group believes to grow as parents we need to set aside this reflective discussion time with other like-minded parents. If you're on the edge about joining you may want to have a skim through Alfie Kohn's Unconditional Parenting and the CDC's research on adverse childhood experiences.
