LUNCHTIME LAB SERIES #1: For parents of kids from 3 to 12 years old.
by Polly Ely, LMFT, Parenting & Family Attachment Specialist
 
Relaxed Leadership:
How to lead peacefully without shaming, blaming, bribing, or blowing your top
My kids won't listen to me! ... I am exhausted by their demands... How can I show them I am in charge without screaming at them or taking everything away?

Start the school year relaxed AND in-charge rather than tense and struggling for power. This two-part class is a magic elixir for parents who want to learn how to 'hold the reins' and get back in the driver's seat peacefully.

DESCRIPTION
Learn how to lean back and trust yourself as a Leader (even when the wheels are falling off the bus!)

Stress and stuck-ness, while embedded in the very fabric of life with kids, does not have to render you tense, exhausted or reactive. Polly sprinkles breadcrumbs in the form of practical tips to get you out of the parenting moments that can leave you feeling lost or at your wits end. Her simple scripts and relaxed guidance empowers parents to lead without blaming, shaming, bribing, threatening or blowing their top.

(Limited to 25 participants)

90 min teaching followed by 30 min of Q&A (Bring your puzzling situations into the room as you wish to so everyone can benefit from the answers)
