“If you don’t listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won’t tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff.” ~Catherine M. Wallace
Jumpstart the Conversation Ecourse: preparing the way for open communication in your family
In your online classroom for this Ecourse you'll find:
- video class on mistakes we make in communicating with children (and how to avoid those mistakes)
- instant download guide + conversation starters
- 4 lessons + printables that will help you build habits and practice skills for building a close family through conversation.
As busy moms we (Lorien and Alissa) sometimes struggle to listen eagerly to all the little stuff, but we haven’t given up. We invite you to join us in creating the habit of connecting with your kids through conversation.
We’ve hit a number of obstacles: endless repetitive conversations, difficult topics, and of course, the feeling of never having enough time.
Through our own trail and error we have found ways to open the door to meaningful conversations that help us really get to know our kids and begin teaching them the art of conversation – a skill that will serve them for life.
Join Lorien VanNess – a mom to four and childhood program coordinator, and Alissa Marquess – mom to three and parenting mentor, and learn the ways they encourage open communication in their homes.
