About the Event

Join us as Parent Coach Cindy Kaplan teaches us about Conscious Parenting, accepting our children as they are, as opposed to who we want them to be. We all have dreams for our children, but we need to recognize when they may be OUR dreams and not necessarily theirs. Conscious Parenting wakes us up to see when we may be putting our agenda ahead of our child's. In learning to become aware of these moments, we can give our children what they truly need rather than what we think they need. As a result, our children become our greatest teachers and we, along with them, grow into our most authentic selves.
