What is the goal of parenting? We all have our own, but overall we likely want to raise good humans who are kind, empathetic, empowered, and happy. It sounds so simple… but is it? We all know it’s not! Parenting with intention and positivity - all while dealing with the stress of day-to-day life - is SO HARD! And each child is different, with different parenting needs. The result is that we tend to practice reactive parenting, which, in turn, can strain our relationships with our children. 

If any of the above resonates with you then join this upcoming Affinity Group discussion. How do we raise good humans in today’s world? How do we take a step back and evaluate how we are parenting and seek out more positive and mindful approaches? Every one of us has unique insights and knowledge about this topic to share with the group. We welcome all parents to join us and to learn, share, guide, and thrive!
