Unstuck Parenting: Cultivate Confidence and Compassion 

2-day Workshop, 11/3 & 4 with special guest trainer jared finkelstein

There are moments of ease and grace when parenting, but nothing seems more frustrating than when we’re stuck or reacting in ways we know are out of alignment with our values.  

One of the common assumptions parents make is that it's our job to make children behave in a certain socially acceptable way. Unexamined, this assumption adds a great deal of stress as we exhaust ourselves struggling to find the right reward or punishment in order to get children to do what we want.  

Trying to get our kids to do what we want can be very frustrating, and often results in backlash. Either our kids rebel or they do want we want resentfully, which in turn damages the quality of connection we want with them.


Join us if you're a parent (or teacher) who would like to:

- parent in alignment with your values
- confidently communicate with compassion
- replace reactivity with mutual respect and open dialogue
- effectively help children work out their own conflict

This two-day workshop in Gainesville, Florida will be rich with experiential learning and role plays. 

Led by experienced NVC trainers Jared and Leif, please read more at www.qualityofconnection.com and www.leifstringer.com

Leif and Jared believe that raising children shapes the adults of the next generation, so working to transform these practices is of paramount importance to them.
