Join Rebecca for a number of terrific sessions at RE 2014:
Keeping Sane and Connected To Your Mate (Couples)
Especially when parents’ decisions are off the beaten path, it becomes more important to stay connected as a couple. In this session, we’ll introduce tools to support the partnership, especially in situations where there may be conflict. We’ll also explore the “brain stoplight,” a fabulous tool to understanding how and when to talk and when to just stay quiet!!
Boundaries versus Limits
Many of us have confusion about where, when, how, and if we should intervene in a child’s natural unfolding. How to work as a family to avoid setting limits for others yet establishing our own healthy boundaries. What is our part in this continuum? Join this practical conversation to learn some strategies for navigating these waters with love and respect.
Accepting Where You’re At and Appreciating the Path
We are a group of parents with strong ideas and ideals. How do we balance where we want to be with where we actually are in this moment? How do we hold the goals of where we want to be and still appreciate where we are? What if the needs of our children don’t fit into any mold at all? How do we find support? How do we find our tribe?
Early Parenting: Essential Tools for Growing Families
What can we do to give our children the best possible chance at emotional health as they grow older? From attachment parenting to setting (our own) healthy boundaries with our growing children, we’ll look at current (practical) neuroscience and cutting edge research about supporting our children through life’s inevitable transitions and challenges.
Be sure to mark your calendar as these are sessions you will not want to miss.
