Respectful Connection Parenting Support Group

Join us for a Respectful Connection Parenting Support Group

This groups is a weekly meeting designed for those parents working towards a connected respectful relationship with their children. We will support and commiserate with each other, problem solve and share ways to meet our needs and the needs of our children without punishments, coercion or manipulations.

This group is open to all parents, no matter where they are in their parenting journey or the ages of their kids. Based on theories and works by Pam Leo, NVC, Scott Noelle, Patty Wipler, Jan Hunt, Alfie Kohn, Gordon Nuefeld, Althea Solter and others.

Children are welcome, there is an adjacent play area to our meeting room. Please feel free to bring what you or your child may need to feel comfortable during group such as easy to clean up snacks or pillows.

We meet on Tuesdays from 10am-12pm at Nurture (1614 NE Alberta St.).
Suggested donation of $3-5 per week to cover costs of handouts and space. Our intention is to work together to create a sustainable group that is abundant in resources. This means sharing what we have when we have it and trusting it will balance out in the end.

Facilitated by Deb Thornton at Nurture. Deb is the mama-mind of Sacred Arrivals, a Parent and Family Coach, Mama to 4, and has been facilitating parenting groups since 1992.
