Maris Rose: Peaceful Practical Parenting Class

Thursdays, February 15th & 22nd, 2018, 6:30-8:00 PM

In an atmosphere of warmth, humor and understanding, parents will learn techniques (and the concepts behind their effectiveness) to bring more peace, connection, simplicity and respectful cooperation to family life.

  • The first class focuses on building a stronger foundation/connection with our children.

  • The second class focuses on sharing the results of our practice of the tools discussed in the first class. Then we address some of the trickier, sometimes more difficult behaviors.*

*It is most beneficial to attend both evenings as the second class builds upon the material discussed in the first. However, parents will find the material helpful even if they can only attend one evening.

These classes are free and open to the public, however, donations are encouraged.

Space is limited! To register, please call 802-482-2878,
