Fertile Ground Parenting: Passing on a Conscious Communication Legacy | June 15
Monday, June 15, 2020
Offered via Zoom (through Natural Resources)
Children learn to communicate and relate to others from watching and listening to us. We learned to do the same from our parents. When we become parents we have the important opportunity to choose which of the messages we received from our own family we want to pass on. Join us in this two-hour workshop to:
- Understand the messages you inherited from your own upbringing and decide which you want to release or pass on to your children;
- Develop a powerful, conscious set of messages you want your children to inherit from you; and
- Avoid passing on subtle messages that undermine children's self-trust, well-being, and capacity.
