Big Picture Parenting:
The 4 Keys to Staying Connected
and Helping Your Child Thrive
in Today's World
Two Sundays, January 19th and February 2nd, 2014, 10:30-4:30
Parenting is harder today than it was 50 or 100 years ago.
In order to stay connected with our kids, when our culture presents so many ways that disconnection can occur, we parents need to have more skills and simply be better at communicating with our kids.
The good news is that staying connected is a skill-based process!
"Lisa Kathleen, you truly are an inspiration. Thanks for giving me so much hope and practical suggestions for creating the reality of the loving, peaceful, and connected parent that I envision being." ~ Stacey Mansell, mom of a boy and a girl
This two-day course will help you to push the RESET button, clear your mind and create new directions, whether your child is not-yet-born, or whether you are knee-deep in toddlers through teens. The course will cover THE 4 elements that you need to know to stay connected and help your children thrive in today's world. If you are like most of the parents I work with, you are probably doing lots "right" already. This course will help you to understand what really matters, and will give you focus and direction in your relationship with your child. We will be honing in, tweaking, and sharing lots of conversation and exploration.

- Are wondering what kind of parenting meets the needs of a child growing up in the 2000’s
- Want to know exactly how the latest research applies to YOU, but don’t have time to wade through the piles of parenting information
- Are a conscious, committed parent
Then, this series is for you.
Join us to explore the 4 fundamental elements:
- Examining ourselves
- What to do instead of rewards, punishments, praise and shame
- Building connection
- Creating the environment in which your child can thrive
These 4 keys fit together and create the foundation for your PEACE OF MIND.
You may be certain that what your parents did wasn’t quite right, but not-so-certain how to do things differently, consistently. You may be very sure that authoritarian parenting isn’t for you, and pretty sure that the kind of permissiveness that leaves you feeling like a doormat doesn’t help your child, but you may not be so sure about how to do things, consistently and lovingly, another way.
Bring your spouse, cousin, friend, or nanny and they pay the second person price!

When & Where
Lisa Kathleen of Full Circle Parenting
Are you a conscious, proactive parent, wanting to grow with your child?
Would you like to know, in your heart, that you are doing the right things to help your child develop more self-confidence, respect, joy, interdependence, and mental and emotional health, long-term?
Would you like to feel confident that the strong connection you are building with your child right now will support you and your child through the teen years and beyond?
Full Circle Parenting works with parents who want to focus on long-term, relationship-building solutions that are key for their children’s development as they are working through discipline, sleep, potty-training, school choices, food, or other issues with their children. They want to focus on the joy and fun in parenting, but sometimes feel stuck.
Many of the parents we work with feel uncomfortable with some recommended parenting practices, such as leaving babies to cry themselves to sleep, or using time-outs, or reward systems to teach skills or values, but they don't know how to do things another way. They sometimes feel like they are spending more time in a power struggle than they are enjoying being a parent.
The parents we work with don't want to be authoritarian, or permissive, and they DO want to clarify their own beliefs about parenting, and formulate a plan to address specific issues AND nurture their relationship with their child.
