Exciting changes here!

 I just got my Pam Leo, "Have you connected with your child today?" bumper stickers in the mail.  How about you?  See my previous blog for information on getting your free bumper sticker.

I've been busy working on many different projects to expand The Consciously Parenting Project to reach more families who are looking for information on how to connect with their children and how to stay connected.  I'm ready to launch a whole new series of TeleParenting Support Classes with a new instructor coming on board who can offer different times and free me up a little more to work on some other projects I have going on.  Wilma Vance, who brings with her many years of parenting experience as an adoptive, foster, and mother of a biological child, as well as many years of professional service working with adoptive and foster families, is joining us to help teach parenting classes.  Wilma actually did the pilot program for the Beyond Consequences classes and has been teaching them for over 2 years.  More importantly, she has been implementing this model into her own home and brings with her a wealth of practical experience "where the rubber meets the road."  I'm delighted that she will be joining us here!  You can send Wilma an e-mail to welcome her at wilma@consciouslyparenting.com

I'm also excited to announce that we will be beginning a new series of both Level 1 and Level 2 TeleParenting Classes in mid-April.  Check out my events page for more information (http://www.consciouslyparenting.com/events.html) on the dates.  I'm still working on the Level 2 sign up, so if it isn't ready when you check it out, please return in a day or so and it should be up.  I'm still working on the second class date as there seems to be a conflict with the Friday night class time.  

The Level 2 class is very exciting and it will be taking a much more in-depth and personal look how the concepts discussed in the Level 1 class and how it applies to our lives and the lives of those around us.  These classes will be every other week and will also be limited to 6 participants.  Because of the smaller class size and the personal nature of this class, each class will be $20 instead of $10.  There will be work outside of the class and this is definitely one of those times when you will get out of it what you put into it.  We are bringing in lots of other resources to deepen your understanding of this paradigm.  I'm looking forward to this class probably as much as the participants!

I'm also excited to announce that we now have a toll free number.  You can call The Consciously Parenting Project for more information on phone coaching, TeleParenting Support Classes, or just general information.  The number is (888)631-4441.

I'm also planning a workshop in Boynton Beach, FL on Saturday, June 28 from 9-12.  This will be a family-friendly interactive workshop entitled: "Parenting Beyond Behaviors:  What Really Matters in Parenting."  Information and sign-up is also available on my events page.

More to come.  Stay tuned...

The newer look of the events page is so much cleaner and nicer. I love it.

Welcome to Wilma!!! Her addition to CP will be so huge for so many families. I am so grateful to both of you (and the many others who have volunteered themselves) for just being available to us and for using your own resources to reach so many people. What a difference just a few like-minded people can make!

And yes, I got my bumper stickers too! :) Thank you, Magnolia!
