More about the Hand in Hand philosophy of parenting by connection

We'll explore tools for listening & thinking well--even under stress--reducing family conflict, helping kids handle big feelings, and supporting YOU!

Hand in Hand Parenting group (6 week series)

Thursdays, January 17-February 21, 6:30-8pm :: Location TBD/Portland

An attachment- and trauma-smart parenting approach for re-connecting with your kids, managing off-track behavior, and preventing meltdowns. We'll explore tools for listening & thinking well--even under stress--reducing family conflict, helping kids handle big feelings, and supporting YOU!

This approach is especially effective with highly sensitive kids and those with a history of trauma and extra-big fears, offering solid support for taming transitions and channeling aggressive energy. 

Special Time...Little nuggets of attention, focus & warm affection can heal hurts & rifts in connection 

Playlistening...Belly laughter and rough & tumble play help your child work through stuck spots & tantrums

Setting Limits...Getting clear on your family values and emotional hot buttons can help you set loving limits 

Staylistening...Learn the art of deep listening to support your child in braving big emotions, letting go of "time outs", sticker charts and ultimatums

This approach to off-track behavior creates more resilient kids with flexibility to reconnect after tough transitions, disappointments, and overwhelm. Bonus: Supporting YOU is the first step! REGISTER HERE
