About Present Moment Parenting
This parenting group is based on Present Moment Parenting developed by Tina Fiegal M.S., Ed.. Tina is the author of The Pocket Coach For Parents available on her website: www.Parentingmojo.com
Parent coaching is a customized-to-your-family opportunity to understand your intense child’s behavior and learn what to do to help it improve dramatically. You’ll learn Present Moment Parenting with the support of a coach who will not pass judgment on you, but will stand by you as you gain new skills. There’s no diagnosis from your coach, just solid, usable tools for bringing out the best in your intense child. How do we define “intense”? If you have a child with whom typical parenting methods don’t help, and even make the situation worse, you’ve come to the right spot.
About This Workshop
Present Moment Parenting is a method of teaching parents a new way of interacting with their children. Our society has embraced the “judge, blame and punish” cycle; most of us were raised this way. Punishment results in only a temporary stoppage of behaviors, the need to retaliate and and causes fear for both parents and children. Present Moment Parenting taps into the power of the present moment to grow desired behaviors instead of punishing undesired ones. Present Moment Parenting is usually taught in a one-to-one format consisting of a parenting coach and parent(s). However, the basic tenets of Present Moment Parenting lend themselves to a workshop format. Furthermore, the group experience allows parents to find support and encouragement from other parents in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
