Education and Family

Wholehearted Parenting

Bonnie Compton APRN, BC, CPNP


Today we’re going to explore an important topic…and have a much needed conversation, but one that might be hard to hear. Our conversation today is going to be about childhood messages. Messages, both the ones that we received as a child, and messages that we are sending to our children…sometimes consciously, often unconsciously.

Childhood messages do matter…the messages that we receive as children, we take them into our adult lives.

I believe that when we learn to send healthy messages to children, they will take their healthy messages out into the world and the ripple effect will be huge.

I’ve asked my guest, Lori Petro, to join my conversation. Lori Petro, is a Speaker, Advocate and Parent Educator. She founded TEACH through Love as a vehicle to help families heal the cycle abuse and trauma through the relationship-building tools of empathy, compassionate communication and peaceful conflict resolution.

As an adult with Asperger’s, Lori understands the demands of parenting kids with special needs and believes that by building strong bonds, we can cross the bridge to understanding the behaviors and needs of all kids. Lori is a sought-after speaker who consults privately with clients, teaches online and shares her insights and information in her weekly TEACHable Moments videos.

Hope you’ll join us!
