“In the Mindful Parenting Group, both my husband and I learned to be proactive in our discipline. As new parents, it’s so easy to rely on the parenting skills you were raised with. We unlearned some parenting habits that we did not want to continue.”

– Eve, Peter, and baby Sophia

“Because of what I’ve learned in this group, and how I’ve grown as a parent, I’ve deepened my relationship with my child and he is thriving because of it. I now have empathy for him and see him as someone who needs my help, and it’s my job as his parent to give him that help. I am so grateful for our time in the Mindful Parenting Group.”

“It was great to hear the experiences of other parents and to share opinions on how to navigate common issues. The class helped me to stay present. A great opportunity to gain tools and structure for parents”

– Carla
Mar Vista

“The (Loving Discipline) class helped us as parents to speak about what’s going on and hear and learn from other parents. It was great to gain knowledge from intelligent and caring teachers. It was even better than I thought it would be. I learned new things and skills about children and their development and how to navigate better decisions for parenting. The leaders were the best I have had in a child/parent group. They knew what to talk about, how to manage the time for sharing and learning.”
