I walked away from the Positive Discipline workshop feeling like I finally understood my child for the first time ever. Sarah helped to show me that my child was not “bad” or “misbehaving” but that she was trying to communicate to me in the only ways she knew how. It was an invaluable experience and I highly recommend it to all parents.
I found that the peaceful parenting practices were totally applicable to everyone else, not just my older then toddler children. it has helped me become a more calm person, and my voice doesn’t have to be loud to be heard any longer. makes for a less stressful life when dealing with adults. I no longer own their reactions. pretty fun actually to watch grown adults trying to push the same buttons they were able to push a few months ago with no success. and I will say that my relationship with my husband has improved dramatically. he’s even “stealing” some of my tricks!!!
