Conventional parenting, backed by the science of behaviourism is what we have all been taught for many years. We have learned to positively reward the behaviors we like to see and punish or ignore those ‘challenging’ ones we want to decrease. Has this actually worked over time? Is it truly nurturing? Is it designed to develop a healthy sense of self identity? In the past 30 years there has been new research into the brain and body. Neuroscience is showing us that it is not so simple. There is so much more going on – their bodies are telling us wonderful stories filled with actual needs that are ours to fill! Come and see all the different ways they share these stories and how you can truly nurture your children into being the best them that they can be!
