"I REALLY got so much out of the course you lead. I have been parenting differently because of it. As a result, my relationship with my 4 year old has blossomed into a wonderful, loving, respectful and peaceful union." - Jennifer Lehr Pearce, Kentfield

As parents, there is nothing more important to us than our relationships with our children. Unfortunately, much of the cultural support around parenting has disappeared and many moms and dads are overwhelmed and confused as to how best to do their job. Too often, parents today take their cues according to what others are doing rather than what feels right to them. As a result we find a culture in which parents are using contrived methods and looking to countless experts to figure out what to do. Often these methods actually encourage us to use our relationship with our children against them or to use the things they care about most as leverage to make them do what we want.

Dr. Gordon Neufeld is an internationally recognized developmental psychologist and bestselling author of Hold On to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers.  Based on his 30 years of research and experience, his “Power to Parent” course teaches us that it is not what we do but who we are to our children that is most important.

"Dr. Neufeld9s approach has the power to change, if not save, our children9s lives." - National Post

Facilitated by one of Dr. Neufeld’s most trusted students, the Power to Parent course is returning to Marin for 8 weeks starting Tuesday March 6th, 2007 in Mill Valley. Each week we will watch a one-hour DVD presentation followed by a facilitated discussion.

"After attending an eight week “Power to Parent” course, I can declare myself, without any hesitation, an entirely renewed parent. I see through a different lens today than that which I used to see my children and their behaviors prior to Power-to-Parent."   - Polly Ely, Kentfield

Some topics addressed include:

*How to use discipline that doesn’t harm your relationship.

*Addressing separation problems- the root of most difficulties.

*Raising children that are capable of deep & fulfilling relationships.

*When kids seek to dominate (instead of depend on) their parents.

*Preventing being replaced by peers or other competing attachments.

*How to best deal with defiance and oppositionality.

*Understanding and addressing the roots of aggression.

*And much, much more

We will meet for 8 weeks on Tuesdays, starting March 27th and ending May 15th. The time will be from 7pm to 9pm each night. Participants should plan on arriving 5-10 minutes early each week. Coffee and tea will be served.

(Dates- March 27. April 3, 10, 17, 24. May 1, 8, 15)
