Did you miss the three week Parenting Without Power Struggles workshop with author, family therapist and HuffPost's "Parent Coach" Susan Stiffelman?
We're making the 3-part series available for those who were unable to take part in the live event.
Here's what Glennon said when she announced the series:
"We’ll come together Sunday evenings online (in our jammies) and
spend an hour with THE BEST the parenting world has to offer, Susan
Stiffelman. I’ll mediate- which means I will ask her your questions and
offer stunning insight (comic relief). Since it’s a webinar- you’ll be
able to see us and it will be funny and warm and HELPFUL and easy and
wonderful. And together we will learn some truly helpful strategies that
are UNIVERSAL and will not only better your relationship with your kids
and your partner and yourself but with everyone in your life. That’s
what I love about Susan’s work – it’s about becoming a better lover of
self and others- not just little ones."
And here are some of the comments we received after the course:
Kris: I just want you to know that you are literally saving my relationship with my 14 year old son... I signed up for and completed the webinar through Momastery, and am so very very grateful to you and Glennon for the work you are both doing. It is life changing for so many of us! I always felt there was a better way and now have the tools to make it happen. You are empowering us as parents which will in turn empower our kids to come from a place of love instead of fear.
Amanda: To illustrate how captivating you were, my husband was watching the football came but came into the kitchen (where I was watching the webinar) to get something to eat. He ended up sitting with me for the rest of the time. Such good stuff!
Heather wrote: Loved every min of that hour...It taught me so much already. It's so reassuring knowing we aren't alone in beating ourselves up as parents when we are just trying to do the best we can. I also love reading all the comments and "stories" of the other monkees!! Looking forward to the next 2 weeks but especially the years ahead of raising my son to be thoughtful and caring addition to this world.
Sarah: Seriously?!?!? Where have you guys been my whole parenting life?! Spot on what I needed to start the week. I feel so grateful to have found this! I am already re-writing stories and trying my best to speak your language. I woke up this morning and said, "Let it be known…I AM THE CAPTAIN! And today will be BETTER!" So much love to you
In this series, you'll hear Susan describe three ways that you can parent:
1. You can be The Lawyer,
engaging in long, drawn out arguments and negotiations that create
resentment, harm the relationship, and are downright exhausting.
2. You can be The Dictator,
attempting to feel some degree of control by intimidating and
overpowering your child with bribes, threats, rewards and punishments.
3. You can be the calm Captain of the ship,
confidently navigating the rough waters of life with children, steering
clear of storms and providing the comfort that comes when kids know
that no matter what they're going through, someone is genuinely in
In our three-week class, you'll have a chance to hear Susan explain the ideas she writes about in Parenting Without Power Struggles and how they can be applied in real-life situations.
You'll hear Susan talk about how to respond, rather than react to children by changing the stories in our head that cause us to lose our cool. And you'll learn ways to help children move through frustration to adapt to life when it isn't going their way, rather than taking their anger out in aggression.
