I've been implementing this recently and I was shocked at how quickly the children responded to my response to the fighting. The children started listening to me, instead of fighting which gave them time to think and cool down. The eldest child (4) has even started offering beautiful solutions to the issues and often offers the item that is the high prize! This makes me feel so accomplished and helps me strive to continue peacefully parenting!
"With Genevieve, the only Heart to Heart Parenting Instructor in NZ - you will feel utterly supported and deeply inspired, I've known Genevieve for many years, and I'm very excited about this unique training program. I see it as a big step towards creating the world we really want. - I would want her courses filled to the brim I can't imagine anyone better to write and run them"
I now have the tools I need to be able to actually be able to discipline my children without punishing them!
I loved how the seminar was kept light and playful, I got such great insights into the power and value of emotional release. Also the huge difference between rules and agreements.
I've gained a deeper understanding of attachement, what to look for, what to notice, and how to help children feel secure. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your knowledge.
I now have a deeper understanding of the need for respectful relationships, and being emotionally available and calm and responsive, particularly for children with more challenging behaviours.
Fascinating to learn the differences in insecure attachment styles - Ambivalent vs Avoidant. So simple but to learn to see the importance of crying as a stress release is a real benefit to me.
The seminar reinforced lots of things I am doing right, but also reinforced that I have to look at myself and change my own beliefs, to stay calm and centred in order to support my childs emotional development. There was lots of time for questions and answers, a good balance of theory and practice.
I now have a deeper understanding of my own processes that affect my parenting habits and I have a new set of skills to manage these. I loved Genevieve's wisdom, empathy, knowledge and presenting style.
I got an amazing insight into how and why I parent the way I do. I now have a plan for when I am triggered. I can really see how useful mindfulness can be in parenting - I wish I did this seminar years ago!!
I gained so much on the workshop personally - I feel encouraged we are on the right path. Genevieve's compassion that it is hard AND worth it is so reassuring! The workshop has helped me to trust in the healing timeframe, and how to recognise when certain elements may be missing in order for that healing to occur.
I was under the understanding that reward systems and time out were the only way!! It is very refreshing to learn a better approach and to understand the long term effects. I've loved learning all the peaceful parenting techniques!
