Facilitator: Monica Bell
Dates: (6 Thursdays) October 5 to November 16 (skip Oct. 26)
Do you want to relate to the kids in your life with more ease, effectiveness and joy? In this supportive, non-judgmental learning group, we’ll learn and practice skills in the following areas: what to do about kids’ overwhelming emotions, how to engage the cooperation of children of all ages, how to foster an atmosphere of love and respect, and how to discipline without hurting or alienating. This research-supported curriculum is based on the award-winning book: How To Talk So Kids Will Listen, and Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish. This course is great for parents, grandparents, teachers, uncles, aunties, librarians, nannies, teens who babysit, and all others seeking more satisfying relationships with children.
Monica first participated in this workshop in 2013, while living in a farming cooperative with more than 5 families and their nine children. An auntie and community organizer, she is passionate about supporting other adults to interact more effectively with young people as a way to co-create a community full of resilient, emotionally healthy, engaged citizens. She is also co-founder of Jefferson County Housing Solutions, a grassroots group working on affordable housing. Email her at email@example.com.
