Private Group Classes

Parenting is one of the most creative and exhausting jobs you’ll ever have

Private Group Classes

Our private group classes are an opportunity to learn about nonviolent parenting in a smaller, more intimate setting. In a private meeting space a certificated Echo parent educator will introduce a practice of raising children based on the latest research about child development (including the effects of toxic stress), nonviolent communication, and how to be a child’s emotional coach.

Through discussion groups, theory, role playing, and specific problem solving, participants will learn:

  • How to set and hold limits with empathy.
  • Self-regulation techniques and the tools to build emotional literacy.
  • How to form developmentally appropriate expectations of a child.
  • How to build and sustain a connected relationship.
