Echo Parenting & Education teaches nonviolent parenting philosophy and practice on Saturday mornings. Classes are held in both Spanish and English. Each class cycle is ten weeks long and held on an ongoing basis. The curriculum involves discussion groups, theory, role-playing and specific problem solving and topics such as empathy and healing. The classes give adults a framework to think about their actions as parents and discover what children truly need to thrive as healthy human beings. Together they learn methods that teach them to create the best possible connection with children, emphasizing respect for the life force of the child. They learn to become emotional coaches to their children; building unconditional acceptance, affection, appreciation, autonomy and attention. For most adults, it is a life changing experience.
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. Please see the “Child Care” section on our website for more information.
