Boston-based Visible Child, home of mindful parenting, is here in the Bay Area for one weekend only!
Seeking a more connected and joyful life with your children? Finding parenting more stressful than you want it to be? Do you find yourself telling your children to do things over and over again? Feeling like they just don’t listen? Ready to explore new and different ways of relating to and disciplining your children? Always open to considering new ideas about parenting? Join Robin Einzig, of Visible Child, and consider a different way!
This workshop introduces parents to a research-based model of parenting and discipline based on cooperation and connection, rather than control. Also sometimes know as “positive,” “conscious,” or “respectful” parenting, it rests on the following assumptions:
1) That all children, at their core, want to be treated with love and respect, and want to please us and make us happy,
2) That all behavior—with no exceptions–is communication and a way of getting a need met, and
3) That understanding child development—what is normal for any given child at any given age—is important in determining the best response.
4) That children are doing the best they can with what they have at any given moment, and that problems are a sign of children having difficulty, not children creating difficulty for us.
The premise is that when these needs are understood and met, the “problems” of parenting lessen or go away, and family life is more joyful and relaxed.
Robin brings playfulness and creativity in a no-judgment way to help families find more effective and peaceful ways of living with their children (of any age). Robin has a heavily traveled blog and has thousands of followers nationally and internationally. For this one evening, she brings her unique model and bottomless bag of tricks to San Jose
“I went to one of Robin’s workshops on Respectful Discipline. It was a total game changer. I walked away with helpful ideas and strategies. I went home feeling calmer and confident that I could turn things around. My son responded immediately. By the end of the first day of consistently and calmly enforcing my limits, he got it. I did not expect such immediate results! He even started to reverse his behavior”
“Robin has an amazing ability to see what needs reflection and change. I always feel refreshed after we have chatted. She very lovingly points out eye opening things–sometimes about us as parents, not just the kids! Thank you for helping me be the mother I desire to be.”
