Parenting Classes


Parenting Classes are a cross section of the community; mutli-racial, multi-ethnic, encompassing a wide variety of social-economic circumstance. Participants seek Echo Parenting & Education for a variety of reasons; because they crossed the line with a child, they are afraid of doing so, the principles of a new paradigm appeal to them or they are court ordered.

Join us in leaning new strategies for connection, regulation and deepening the relationship between you and your child.

In the ten class series we will teach you a method of parenting that is based on the latest research about brain and child development and the effects of childhood trauma, so that your child can enjoy  life-long connection and learning.

Through discussion groups, theory, role playing, and specific problem solving, we will:

– Learn to set clear and respectful boundaries
– Explore ourselves and our children through a lens of empathy and understanding
– Identify strategies & tools that will help you successfully create the parenting relationship you want with your child.

Child Care is provided during class hours. Our caretakers are an integral part of our program, trained in the nonviolent teachings and support both parents and children. We are not able to provide childcare for children who are not able to walk on their own — if your child is not yet walking and you want to join our parenting classes you can bring your child with you into class.  See your Child Care information for more details.  Echo Parenting & Education Child Care is an opportunity to see our Philosophy and Practice in action.
