Fertile Ground Parenting: Strengthening Communication While Parenting | March 18
"Strengthening Communication While Parenting,” the third workshop in the six-part series Language Matters: How to Raise Confident & Compassionate Children Through Conscious Communication, will be held on Monday, March 18 from 6-8pm at Natural Resources in San Francisco. Babes in arms are welcome.
Communication is one of the most challenging aspects of any partnership, even before we have children. With all the stresses, lack of time, and exhaustion of parenting, it's no wonder that the way we talk with our partner, spouse, or co-parent can fray or even fall apart when our kids arrive. This two-hour workshop will help you access tools and techniques for maintaining or strengthening communication:
- when important decisions need to be made;
- when difficult things happen;
- in moments of conflict; and
- in the everyday.
Facilitated by respectful-parenting educator Caroline Griswold and conscious communication coach Alejandra Siroka.
