Find Time For Fitness

16/12/2021 8:00 pm EDT

Challenges & Solutions

Previously hosted live class. Access the recording and handouts by clicking on the Course Lesson below.

We parents of young children have too much to do and not enough time to do it. So certain things fall off the to-do list, and fitness is usually one of the first to go. At the same time, we know deep down that we are more patient and positive when we take at least good enough care of ourselves.  

Join us for this quick, practical class that will focus on results so that you will be able to:

  • Apply strategies to quickly include fitness into your day
  • Identify fun ways to include kids in your workouts
  • Improvise new approaches when the perfect workout just isn’t possible.

Challenges & Solutions

Previously hosted live class. Access the recording and handouts by clicking on the Course Lesson below.

Your child’s sexuality is part of their identity, and it’s important to talk about it. We know it can be uncomfortable to talk about sex and sexuality with your child, and we also know how important it is to support their confidence and positive and meaningful relationships. This course is designed to help you have these difficult and important conversations and help you and your child be sex positive – embracing that sexuality is a part of humanity. We will talk about:

  • Stepping out of the comfort zone
  • Supporting your child’s identity and relationships
  • Consent
  • Safety and Assault

Raise Happy Children: Parenting for Optimism and Resilience

30/11/2021 12:00 pm EDT

Challenges & Solutions

Previously hosted live class. Access the recording and handouts by clicking on the Course Lesson below.

Parents sometimes feel discouraged when their children want more toys, the newest technology, or the coolest sneakers that they believe will make them really happy. And maybe those things will work…for a few hours or a couple of days. What really makes our kids happy? How often do we get caught up in what media tells us will bring joy into our lives? 

Research tells us that “things” don’t really make us happy. While temperament is inborn, parents can actually help children increase optimism (positive outlook and hopefulness) and resilience (ability to effectively bounce back from challenges). These capacities are strongly connected to well-being and success. You will examine your day to day interactions and consider approaches that will increase these important traits in yourself and your children. You will also gain the courage to set limits on “stuff” and focus on what counts in building a happy family.

Strategies For Prioritizing Health & Wellness In A Positive Way

● Discover ways to speak about our bodies that encourage body positivity for our children

● Discuss the reasons why we need to model healthy behaviors for our children
