Maybe you’ve made it through a Hand in Hand Course or series of Support Calls! Or we have had a Consultation, long or short, or you have joined me on a Webinar or Q&A. Whatever way we made contact, well done!
Ongoing contact with other parents, and with support and guidance, is the thing that will help to keep you on-track with parenting the way you want. It will help keep you working from a place of connection rather than harshness, and with a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. But how do you stay in contact with other parents as you strive to keep the focus on building and repairing connection with your children?
I’ll put in a plug here for staying in some kind of ongoing group. I’ve been running ongoing phone/video conferencing based groups for several years now, and have been working, on and off, with some parents through that time. A very special kind of trust and safety builds as we work together like this over an extended time. You will deepen your understanding of the listening process, and we can do more together as we get to know each other. Many parents build Listening Partnerships out of these groups.

Emotional projects are issues which crop up over and over in your relationship with your child. They can be persistent, challenging, and wearing! I really recommend a combination of a) studying up on the topic and b) getting some one on one assistance to develop a connection plan to tackle the issue over time.
For the study, once you have worked through the video and other material for the Starter Class, I highly recommend the short, self-paced online courses produced by Hand in Hand. They cover much of the same ground as the Starter Class, but from the perspective of the issue at hand – separations, sibling rivalries, aggression, sleep, limit setting. They are excellent value for money.
And as I have probably said if we have already spoken, I highly recommend getting some help via a One-on-One Consultation. Often, you will only need one or two sessions to get the Hand in Hand perspective of what is going on in your family and develop a plan of action. You may want to follow it up with another consult down the track. You can book using the above link.
And in any case, please do drop me an email every now and again, as I love to hear your stories, and how things are going.
