Learn how to move away from reactionary punishment toward proactive and positive solutions that will leave your child feeling empowered, fiercely connected to you and ready to navigate life’s conflicts and challenges . This hands-on session will focus on three powerful steps that will empower any parent to shift toward more ease and grace in this important and fulfilling journey called parenting.
