The Hand in Hand Parenting Starter Class is the foundation class if you are new to Hand in Hand Parenting. It will show you the root of your child’s frustrating behavior and give you the right tools to bring it back on course. Join Certified Instructor Madeleine Winter as she guides you through the process of building the best relationship possible with your child. Madeleine has been working with parents using the Hand in Hand Tools for over 30 years, and brings deep experience to coaching and supporting mothers and fathers across the world.
Join this Class to learn Hand in Hand's connection-based approach through 1-1 coaching and support, and meeting with a small group of other fathers and mothers on the same parenting journey.
You will learn to:
– Decode your child's difficult behaviors as stress signals and bids for connection
– Respond better to tears, tantrums, defiance, aggression, and other common parenting challenges
– Set limits with warmth and authority before becoming frustrated and “losing it”
– Utilize the power of play to lift your children's fears, restore their confidence, and win their cooperation
– Reduce your own parenting stress and offer support to others through advice-free Listening Time
