Making the Switch to Peaceful Parenting ~ A Six-Week Teleclass

(IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are interested in signing up for this class but this time doesn't work for you because of where you live on the planet (we've had interest from such places as India, Norway, and New Zealand) or you have a scheduling conflict, please drop me a line or send me an email, and let me know where you are on this beautiful planet so we can create a time that will work for you.)


Want to learn more about this class, but you'd rather have someone just tell you?  Well, alright.  Watch here:


If you want to parent peacefully but have been confounded by...

  • no cooperation
  • lying
  • tantrums and meltdowns
  • yelling
  • hitting
  • fighting
  • screaming, and
  • other behaviors that just drive you up the wall...

...and you find yourself yelling, even though that's not what you want to do...THIS is the class for you.

I am blown away…I am so very grateful for you and the way in which you frame the universal feelings that I think so many of us have and don’t know how to really process or contextualize.
— K.L.
Wow!!!!! I learned so much in just a short amount of time! Thank you, Marji, and also to everybody for making it a safe place to share.
— D.B.C.

You will learn:

  • why kids behave the way they do,
  • how to turn around unwanted behavior (including your own!),
  • how to help kids cooperate better,
  • how to help kids communicate more effectively,
  • how to help yourself communicate more effectively,
  • what children really need from you,
  • how to meet your kids' needs without that nagging feeling that you are also sacrificing your own needs,
  • how to turn things around when you've absolutely "lost it,"
  • how to transition from coercive, punitive parenting to peaceful parenting without feeling like you're being walked all over,
  • how to respond more effectively,
  • how to make power struggles a distant memory (really!),
  • how to develop strategies that feel good to you and that turn things around fast without losing your cool,
  • how to stop hitting,
  • how to help your parenting partner gain these skills,
  • positive steps to end bullying, AND
  • how to take better care of yourself so that you can be more responsive to your children!

And, how to finally STOP yelling.

Thank you very much. You gave me a very valuable communication/relationship tool. I am so grateful!

Your tools are truly life-changing for me. You really have a gift.

Thank you for your guidance and compassion, Marji. I loved the course and will continue to work on the course material for my daughters and other relationships in my life.
— J.L.
Last week’s recording really resonated with me, particularly the part about playing and connection. I feel grateful that playing with [the] kids came naturally, and how much they appreciate it! And on a deeper level children are teaching me so much - for instance to take a more playful approach to life, lighten up, not take things so seriously. After all what are we ‘working’ for...

A lovely thing happened last week. I did some cleaning and S. came in, noticed each thing I had done, and thanked me three times for it. I was so surprised, I asked her mom if she had asked her to give me acknowledgement! But she hadn’t. I believe it’s because her mom had been doing more nourishing activities with her and so she was feeling topped up.
— J.R.

AND, you’ll learn how you can effectively respond to your children in ways that...

  • deepen your connection,
  • end unwanted behavior,
  • allow your children to recover more quickly when they're upset, and
  • are in alignment with the parent you want to be!
Our 13-year-old daughter had a huge emotional outburst last night. She was yelling at us, being hurtful with her words, and it was really intense...as we talked through it [using the techniques learned in class] she shared that she was feeling very jealous because she feels like her brother is getting more time with her dad than she is....It’s a confirmation that, as we learned in week one, that something like this intense emotional outburst is usually a reaction to a strong feeling our children need our help working through. Once we worked through it...she was back to her lovely self with a plan for time with daddy on the books!
— H.F.
Thank you for assisting us in understanding more fully life’s complexities with our older teenagers.
— D.E.

The total cost for the six-week series is $120.  A payment plan is available, please ask.

(NOTE:  Both parents are invited and encouraged to attend for no additional charge!)

Consider this:  For the price of a few lattes per week and for less than the price of a movie for a family of four, you could get started on the path to transform your whole relationship with your kids. Forever.

I have been finding immense joy in reconnecting with my little 6-year-old. I thought I knew this kid, but the tools we have learned in the class have transformed my relationship with him in a profound way. I’m learning to speak his language and the power struggles are not so very intense.
— B.W.G.
Working with [Marji] could be another path of wellness to being the parent you want to be. I know it has for me.

How will the teleclass/workshop work?  Here's how:

  • All participants dial into a conference line at class time. We begin each session with a check-in, during which each participant (who wants to, of course) shares his or her successes, struggles, questions, or stumbles, and we discuss that.  We then jump into the content for that week. 
  • Class size is limited to no more than 6 participants, because it is a highly interactive class, and this affords everyone the time to engage and be supported.
  • At the end of each weekly session, homework is offered that is related to what we discussed during the session that will help deepen the participants' experience and learning.
  • Each session is recorded and uploaded to a private password-protected page on the Peaceful Parent Whisperer website along with a transcript of the content and the homework for that session. The page is only accessible to the participants for confidentiality's sake. Participants can either download the recordings to listen to later and/or share with their parenting partner, or they can listen right there on the website. This is beneficial in case a participant has to miss a session or leave early or tend to their child during the class. 
  • During the six-week program (and afterwards, too), I am available to whomever needs me, either by telephone, by email, or via a private Facebook group that will have been set up for the times in between sessions when folks may need a little more help or may want to support each other. This is a very critical part of what makes this program so effective!  A lot of great work happens in between sessions, as participants talk about the material and how they are implementing changes; people inspire each other as they work together to make this important shift.
  • If you have any other questions about how this works, or if you have any concerns or issues (like, you'd really like to participate but you're not sure how you'll manage money-wise), please reach out. We will figure out something. I have never turned anyone away because finances were tricky, and I'm not about to start now. 

And, remember: If the scheduling is not workable for you, please be aware that we are always scheduling new sessions. We generally arrange the scheduling based on when the participants can make it (for instance, a recent session began at 10 pm to accommodate the participants' needs).  Let us know what your scheduling needs are by sending an email or using the contact page.

The point is that if you want to take the class but feel that there is something holding you back, let's see if we can find a way around that obstacle.

So...need more information?  Have some questions?  Want to take the class but the time isn't right?  Drop me a line.  You can send me an email, call me on the phone (845-657-3111), or use the contact page.  As the Beatles used to sing, "We can work it out!"

I loved the class!
— S.J.H.
I’m glad you’re doing what you’re doing, because there’s such a need for people like you. I mean, there are so many people like me who want to effect positive change in their families, but there are so few people who…can help us get there. Just know that I think you are amazing and you are right at the center of where you should be. You...have so much insight and gifting in this area.
