The Sunday before last we went to a Parenting From Your Heart
workshop a sponsored by CNVC
at the Washington Ethical Society
. Satch spent the afternoon with his friend, R and was very excited about it. It was the first time ever he was in anyone else's care. When we returned he was happy to see us, but wasn't ready to leave.
The workshop was very insightful. Inessa
spoke about using NVC
as a parenting tool and demonstrated how to apply it with various role playing exercises. My hope is to get away from using "Time Out" even though we only use as a last resource.
