Kind and Loving, Warm and Gentle 

Would you like to be kind and loving and firm all at the same time? A new paradigm for parenting has emerged over that shifts the focus from fixing the behavior to understanding child development, and understanding the role of the parent.  If you are striving towards parenting from the heart, from a place that is kind and loving, warm and gentle, this is the class for you. We'll delve into the roots of attachment and your relationship with your child as the heart of parenting. We'll explore ways to deepen attachment, and work with the relationship as the foundation for parenting. We'll also explore practical ways of responding to challenging situations, as well as ways of eliminating many of the common parenting challenges by making simple changes in the home.


  • Bringing your child along without resistance.
  • Parenting as being yourself.
  • Lightening up and feeling more creative.
  • Knowing what to do in challenging situations, being present in the moment.
  • A more harmonious flow to your day.
  • Letting go of stress and guild.
  • Helping your child grow peacefully and respectfully as a human being.
  • Being clear and confident in your parenting.

Join me as we explore a gentle path to parenting based on the developmental needs of your child.
