In this webinar with Amy Phoenix of Presence Parenting we discussed what discipline is, how it’s different from punishment, and why it matters. We’ll get real about recognizing our go-to punishments and transforming them into discipline. And we’ll talk about real ways to make the transition from punishment to discipline, and what to expect from ourselves and our kids during this process.
Join us and learn….
*What discipline is, how is it different from punishment, and why it matters.
*How discipline can transform your power struggles into learning opportunities.
*How to recognize the signs that we’re punishing versus teaching our children.
*The role of mindfulness in our transition to a collaborative relationship with our children.
Navigating Emotions for Parents Ebook is a collection of in-the-moment mindfulness exercises to stop and change what we do when we feel upset (and I continue to use them myself to reroute force into truth, trust and love). Each exercise is only a page or two long and you can read one then practice it for a week or so and make it your own. By the end of the book you’ll have twenty useful tools to help you navigate the emotional waters of parenting.
Choosing Presence (aka Sane Parenting Challenge) is a six week written and audio journey to change the way you respond when parenting feels intense. Each weekly exercise offers a practical microskill to help you transform reactivity and choose how the message of your love comes through.
