I really need help dealing with my daughter! I think a parenting class is in order for DH and I, but I'm hesitant because I'd really like something GD, positive discipline, non-punitive, etc. Can anyone recommend something in Portland?
How about Sheri Louis and her "mindful parenting" classes. I think they happen often and I've heard great things. [email protected] - just inquire about the next class.
Also check out "Simplicity Parenting" and the book of the same title by Kim John Payne - there are local parenting support groups with leaders trained in "simplicity parenting". I personally think very highly of it.
Good luck on your journey and I think it's great you are willing to pick up some more parenting skills!

The Nurtured Parent parenting classes are great: http://www.nurturingtherapy.com/classes/
They are co-facilitated by the founders of Wild Lilac Child Development Community. (One is a social worker who focuses on parenting and they both have backgrounds in early childhood education).
