Wholehearted Parenting – Who’s Melting Down Now?

With the holiday season upon us, we may easily become stressed and are known to “lose it” on occasion. We often focus on our children’s meltdowns, but what about our own? Our adult meltdowns are often only a “bigger” version. Do you wish you could learn to take a moment and respond to your child in a mature, responsible manner? Sound impossible? Well it’s not! When we learn to become less emotionally reactive, everyone benefits. We also model for our children the importance of responding vs. reacting in our everyday lives.

I know you won’t want to miss my conversation with Hal Runkel, author of “Screamfree Parenting: The Revolutionary Approach to Raising Your Kids by Keeping Your Cool”. Hal is licensed marriage and family therapist, relationship coach, and seminar speaker. He is also the founder of the Screamfree Institute.

Please join us as we explore what Screamfree Parenting is all about!
“ScreamFree: learning to relate to others…in a calm, cool and connected way, taking hold of your own emotional responses no matter how anyone else chooses to behave; learning to focus on yourself and take care of yourself for the world’s benefit.”
