15. Who is the parenting program for?
The primary goal of our Parenting Today: Adapt & Grow Together Course is not to have obedient children. It is to enhance the quality of our relationship with our children by learning skills and understanding the difference between conscious parenting and autopilot parenting. By being able to develop a mindful mindset to manage our stress effectively we are then able to connect with our children and meet their needs as well as our own. If you are looking for a quick fix solution so that child can behave then this is not for you.
We’re here to help you build trust and connection with your children so that you can handle challenging situations by being conscious in the choices you make. If you believe that you are ready to invest in your child’s development and create a family environment where your child is free to be fully self-expressed and you want to discover ways on how you can make parenting become a joy for you, then let’s get started. If you also like to learn about how some parts of the brain function that will alter the way you see your child and understand how you are when you are stressed, then this course is for you.
