Parenting Classes

Saturdays, April 6 – June 22, 2019 (Spanish & English at 11:30 am)

Parenting is one of the most creative and exhausting jobs you’ll ever have. Sometimes you’ll find yourself saying or doing things to your child you swore you would never do.

Our 10-class parenting series draws on the latest scientific research on brain and child development, as well as the effects of childhood toxic stress. Discover how to communicate in ways that deepen your relationship with your child and begin to model the skills that are proven to help your child succeed at school, have more rewarding relationships and enjoy a longer, healthier life.

You will learn how to:
– Develop emotional intelligence
– Communicate and stay connected when there is conflict
– Set clear, respectful limits
– Find the love and empathy you need for yourself and your child
– Use regulation skills to stay emotionally grounded
– Recognize the impact of childhood toxic stress and generational trauma on the body and brain
– Build resilience

We provide free childcare for the regular Saturday parenting programming. Our childcare workers are trained in trauma-informed care and model the empathetic relationship building and limit setting that sets Echo apart from other parenting approaches. Through fun activities and modeling, the childcare curriculum teaches an age-appropriate version of the information adults are learning in class.
