I found Hand in Hand Parenting after a tough separation that led my 3 year old son to act out aggressively towards me. The aggression raised real fear about having no idea how to "get my son to stop", and about the anger that it triggered in me. I was desperate for help. I read every book out there, including some really good attachment based and neuroscience based ones by Dr. Daniel Siegel that felt more true to my heart, but I was still struggling to know what exactly to do when my son was hurting me.
In my desperate search, I found an article on aggression in children from Hand in Hand Parenting.
I also ordered Patty Wipfler's book "Listen" as soon as it came out. Beautifully in line with the current neuroscience research and filled with story after story of transformation, the tools from Hand in Hand Parenting have brought deep healing in my relationship with my son.
I have completed the Professionals Training with Hand in Hand Parenting, and I have almost completed the Instructor Certification Training. I am passionate about sharing this beautiful and supportive parenting approach out into my community and further.
