Compassionate Parenting

FREE - Donations Accepted

With Joanna Douglas Rainey and Genevieve Keller

Sunday 22, 2019 at 2:30 PM – 4 PM

Childcare Provided: Please RSVP below so we get an idea of how many materials to produce. Let us know if you need childcare.

We love our children so much, and yet we can get so overwhelmed…

We so want to support them and guide them, and yet we get flustered and lose track of what really matters as we are trying to get to an appointment on time…

We have prepared everything for a great outing (snacks, drinks, diapers, toys, books, change of clothes), and then we snap at our child and it becomes a power struggle…

Does this sound familiar?

Join us to learn new ways to navigate the sometimes troubled waters of parenting.

The intentions around this first introduction to Compassionate Parenting are to:

  • Give you tools to meet the challenges of everyday parenting
  • Gather a community of parents and learn to lean into companionship and supportv
  • Practice gentleness with yourself

Compassionate parenting is about meeting challenges with compassion for yourself and your child, focusing on connection and building trust in the fact that everyone's needs matter; thereby turning power struggles into dilemmas.
