A Better Relationship With Your Children
I am honored to have one of my teachers and well-known author Dr. Jack Pransky come to Sedona and lead a workshop, based on his book, Parenting From The Heart
Dr. Jack Pransky
Many parents are frustrated in raising their children--and they don't have to be.
Many parents wish they had a better relationship with their children--and they can.
All it takes is gaining an understanding and perspective that exists inside all parents. We have been taught how to deal with children's behavior from the outside-in, when we really need to be looking and acting from the inside-out.
What does this mean?
Parents understandably want their children to behave well. Parents have learned to try to make this happen in various ways: some through use of consequences; some through use of punishment; some through rewards, some through other parenting skills, such as communication. All (with the exception of punishment) are taught in traditional parenting classes and books. All consist of doing something to or with children from the outside in hopes that our children's behavior will change. The flaw in this approach is that all children's behavior is created from the inside before it comes out for the rest of us to see and react to. If we really want to be effective in raising our children and parenting most successfully, it is critically important to understand the internal process that creates and ultimately changes their (and our own, as parents) behavior in the first place.
By looking in this direction, and deeply understanding it, all parents can have far better relationships with their children. They will observe visible improvements in their kids' behavior. All parents have the capability to turn destructive relationships into healthy relationships. Further, parents who already have decent relationships with their children can make those relationships blossom and become even better, the way most parents dream it could be.
Added benefits: Parents will feel reduced stress and less pressure. They will bring out the best in their children and in themselves as parents. Their children will learn to be guided by their own inner wisdom as they grow and develop. We parents will learn to be guided by our own inner wisdom in raising them.
For this workshop parents are welcome and encouraged to bring with them specific difficulties they are experiencing with their children, so they can have all their questions answered about how to deal with behavior issues.
