Nourishing Healthy Relationships

April 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Parents are their children’s first and most empowering role models.

Our conversation will revolve around:

• Finding joy in parenting

• The challenges parents face

• How to handle unwanted advice

• Consumer challenges and technology overuse

• Nurturing our children in nature

• Parenting to change the world

Parents are their children’s first and most empowering role models. Meeting our children’s needs by nurturing them with sensitivity, kindness, and compassion is a model for children to observe and learn how to conduct themselves in this world. We are mocking the most precious investment there could be: As today’s children will become tomorrow’s adults, a life cycle of compassion and connection will pave the way for a more peaceful, compassionate world for future generations.

We aim to provide what you and every parent needs for healthy, flourishing parenting, families, and children:

• Lower and buffered stress.

• Practical coping skills.

• The space to learn and share broad research and experiences about healthy, effective parenting.

• The ability to choose what fits your needs and the encouragement that guides your progress in the areas that matter most.

We hope you’ll join us!

**Once you register, we will email you a link to the Zoom class. Please note the link may not be emailed until the day of the session!
