Parenting Classes

Are you ready for your kids to listen the first time?  
Want to put an end to arguing and whining?
Tired of battling over the little stuff?
Worried you’re not doing this right?
Wishing for a roadmap to raising great kids?
Not sure how to handle situations?
Can’t believe you’ve yelled at your precious children when you swore you never would?

 

Rooted in Love and Logic® and incorporating the latest developments in neuroscience, Kerry’s classes can transform your parenting.  The Love and Logic parenting model has been around for a long time because it works wonders in bringing peace and calm to our family life. Neuroscience helps us understand how to calm and soothe our children..

Attachment Theory informs us about how to create strong family bonds and secure children with a healthy conscience. Kerry’s classes and parent coaching incorporate all three of these models.

 “The info was great; made me really think. It also reinforced I’m not alone. Kerry was funny and engaging.”
