Steve has been helping families create kinder, loving and more respectful homes for 40 years. Steve will share what he has learned about raising children to be happy and healthy people. Too often parents focus on behaviors rather than on the principles that will guide them throughout their lives.  With the best of intentions, parents often engage in patterns of struggle that negatively affect everyone in the family. Learn how to interrupt those all too familiar patterns that keep the same struggles happening over and over again along with practical and useful skills that will help you to parent in calm and respectful ways.  You will leave equipped with practical and concrete ideas of how to create more of the family you want.
