Hand in Hand Parenting Starter Class

A post about my six-week Starter Class (updated to include current dates).

Calling all not-perfect parents! I’ve got a local class starting on January 29th. I love Hand in Hand Parenting because it’s not one-size-fits-all, not a “magic bullet,” just tools to help us understand and respond, recharge and connect. I offer parenting support because I know what it’s like to feel unsure about how to respond to what is happening with, to or inside of my child. To yell–again–after promising myself I wouldn’t. To be scared that I am messing up the project and the people who are most important in my life. Your challenges may be very different than mine, but there are tools that helped me, and I know they help other parents. You can find out about my winter class here and check out what other parents have to say about how the Hand in Hand Parenting approach helped their parenting.
