Do you ever wish that your child had arrived with a ‘How to Parent Me’ manual?
Are there sticky parenting issues that crop up again again and again?
Or have you entered a whole new stage with new challenges that you’re not sure how to navigate?
Do you find yourself feeling like you’re the only one dealing with challenges like this?
For over 30 years, Hand in Hand Parenting has been supporting parents to understand their children's behaviour and build deeply connected relationships that last a lifetime. We know that every family is unique and that with sufficient support each parent can figure out what will work best in their specific situation. The five Listening Tools that we share with parents are easy to learn and yet hugely effective. They have transformed lives around the world, helping parents to learn how to connect well with their children, bring more play and joy into their lives and help their children become emotionally resilient as they grow.
Lara Zane is mum to two school aged kids and a certified Hand in Hand Instructor based in London. Over this six week course she will support you to explore the Hand in Hand approach, use it to make the changes you want to make in your family and become more confident in your parenting. Every week you will meet over Zoom to take a look at one of the Hand in Hand tools in detail and answer your questions to help you with whatever's going on in your home right now.
By the end of this course you will:
- Have a much better understanding of what drives your child’s behaviour
- Know how to help your kids move through the hard times and recover from old hurts
- Develop new ways to have fun and play together
- Feel much more confident about setting warm limits in a way that builds co-operation and connection long-term.
- Be carefully listened to in a safe and emotionally supportive space, allowing you to find the best way forward for you and your family.
- Meet like-minded parents and discover a community of others who ‘get you’
- Learn the skills to set up Listening Partnerships with other parents that will enrich your life for many years to come.
Here's what parents have said about what it's been like to work with Lara:
“I joined the six week starter class lacking confidence in my parenting and often feeling that I was powerless to make changes in my relationship with my son. I left with tools that allow me to stay on his side even when things go awry, to recognise the power of play and laughter in creating lasting connection, and to better understand my own childhood and how it affects the way I parent. I’m surprised that such a short course has made such a huge difference. Thank you Lara!”
“Lara is an exceptional instructor; empathetic and genuine in her desire to help parents improve their connection to their children through Hand in Hand without judgement or shame. She listened warmly and each question was answered with real thought. We were all on this journey together sharing stories and celebrating wins together; when your instructor shares their struggles too then it sets a precedence for openness and honesty within the group and that’s when the magic happens. I would describe this as a really positive experience and the best gift you can give your child.”
“Attending Lara's Hand in Hand parenting course has been a total life-changer for me. It has given me back a sense of confidence in my parenting, helping me to regain feelings of joy in my interactions with my twin boys. Lara's sensitive, non-judgmental approach has allowed me to gently unfold my fears and worries around being a Mum. She offers a safe, supportive environment in which to share and learn. I am bowled over by the simple yet very effective tools taught on this course and I love that it is underpinned by brain science.”
As well as the weekly zoom calls, Lara runs a dedicated WhatsApp group for questions and support as we go along and you get 6 months access to an online classroom with excellent videos and reading material to support your learning by Patty Wipfler, Hand in Hand Parenting’s inspirational founder.
