What is the Whole Brain, No-Drama Approach?


In this workshop, explore the fundamentals of the whole brain, no-drama approach. Learn how your child's brain is wired and explore practical, brain-based parenting strategies from Dr. Dan Siegel and Dr. Tina Bryson's The Whole Brain Child. We will also discuss the ultimate child-raising challenge: discipline - and the fascinating link between a child's neurological development and the way a parent reacts to misbehavior. By the end of the workshop, you will be equipped with tools to respond to your children in ways that calm the chaos in your family life and wire their brains for health, happiness, creativity and compassion. Date and Time TBD.  Pre-registration is required. Sign up below.

No-Drama Discipline: Let's Calm the Chaos

No-Drama Discipline

In this workshop, learn effective ways to discipline your children without resorting to punishment for misbehavior.  Using Drs. Siegel & Bryson's new book No-Drama Discipline as a guide, we will re-think the concept of discipline so that the goal is not only to change our children's behavior but also to build their brains and promote future life skills.  At the end of the workshop, you will leave with an effective and compassionate roadmap for discipline so that you can more effectively nurture your child's developing mind and calm the chaos in your family life.  Date and time TBD.  Pre-registration is required.

Lea also teaches parent education classes through the San Luis Coastal Adult School.
