These smiling folks are the first graduates of our new "Positive Discipline Toolbox" workshop. We spent 8 Tuesday evenings together, sharing dinner, concepts, and conversations about life, family, kids and parenting.
Our new program design is a combination of content and community building. Today's post spotlights some of the graduate comments about the program. Based on the feedback from the graduates, the program was a hit!
Crystal: The class taught me useful tools for my family. I felt that I could relate to a lot of the other parents.
Stanley: Parenting class helped me better understand how to connect to my children by helping me better understand myself.
Amy: I have learned new skills in developing my parental abilities. The techniques do work!
Hope: Parents' Academy is helping me become a more conscious and aware parent... I am more in tuned to my nurturing side and able to communicate more efficiently with my family when I am in need of help.
Laurie: I have learned to communicate with my family and to take parenting advice from others in a positive manner.
Rosie: Group support is a big plus! The class helped me understand it's okay to not know what to do with a toddler. Thankfully, now I have a toolbox to use forever.
Joe: Parenting class allows us to share all the emotions, life lessons, struggles and accomplishments that we go through as parents on a daily basis. It is therapeutic and encouraging.
