links to free support for parents

More good free teleseminars from Hand in Hand that I’m bringing to your attention. This work is all about finding ways to give yourself and your child a deeper connection to each other, to your hearts, to what really matters. The tools are kind and useful – and this approach is all about valuing parents and appreciating that we are doing our best rather than coming at us with lots of information suggesting how things “should be done”. Having just finished my online training with Hand in Hand, I am an even keener advocate than before. There is also a very good yahoo group for parents, which is free to join (from the hand in hand website), where all your questions on aspects of parenting children of all ages get answered. http://www.handinhandparenting.org/schedule/online

About Joanna Watters

I love to support people to meet each moment as it actually is, to accept it, and even to welcome it. From this comes such a good sense of connection, resource, relief. And from this place sustainable, positive actions can and do arise, flexible with love rather than tight with fear. I very much enjoy working with parents - because as parents we have such an amazing and challenging opportunity to meet each moment afresh as we meet our child, who is newer to this world than us, fresh and full of life, and yet also needing our guidance and direction in how to navigate living. I have always worked with families and children - starting at a Bristol City Farm, and then becoming a primary school teacher, and then working with teenage parents for a Devon-based charity, Family Education Development Trust until they folded in 2011. This year I have completed an online training for professionals with Hand in Hand Parenting whose approach to parenting continues to inspire me. And also been a participant on Miriam Martineau's online course: Parenting as a Spiritual Practice which was also very inspiring. I draw on my own experience of being raised by loving parents, and then being a mother to two sons in a split family, and educated in Steiner and State schools, and having received years of exceptional guidance through movement, enquiry and meditation in how to live this life as an embodiment of conscious nature.
