Hi, all! Just letting anyone in the Seattle area know about this amazing workshop coming up on Saturday, 9/22. Cindy's talks spring from Gordon Neufeld's (author of Hold Onto Your Kids) massive body of work. The material--especially the way Cindy shares it--has truly transformed our family. I'd love to see some fellow MDC mamas at the talk! Details below...

- Harness the power of attachment so that your child
wants to be good for you
- Know when and how to address problem behaviors
- Discover how to handle outbursts of aggression
- Help your child accept "no" for an answer
- Use structure and ritual to avoid unnecessary
struggles around
homework, bedtime, etc.
- Unlock your child's capacity for self control
- Avoid getting stuck in what doesn't work

One of the most common challenges parents face is
how to help children behave without resorting to
threats, coercion, withdrawing connection, or
bargaining, approaches that produce short-term
results but are damaging to the relationship in the
long-term. The context of relationship with our
children is the single most important factor
determining our success as parents. For this reason
it is critical that we find ways to help our children
grow up that preserve and protect the relationship
instead of compromising it. Discipline That Doesn't
Divide outlines basic principles of discipline that are
both attachment friendly and developmentally safe.
The presentation explores these principles in depth
and clarifies how we can incorporate them into our
interactions with children of all ages. Cindy Leavitt
will discuss how to apply these principles in our
daily lives with children of all ages.
