Attached at the Heart Parenting Program - 10 week online series
Dates TBD, 2022 1 hour Live streamed class via Zoom Thursdays at 7pmEST/6pmCST
This class series allows for online learning like you've never experienced before, combining the support of live classes, from the comfort of your own home, with the convienance of online resources and extended discussions for in-depth learning and immediate application of the information and skills.
Join me every Thursday evening for the AHPP Online live class, as we dive deep into all of the topics parents want to know about. Throughout the week you will have access to incredible resources including quick videos, handouts and additional materials, activities to try at home, and stories from other parents.
Small class sizes means that you get the focused attention you want, the opprotunity to share how these parenting skills can be used in your home, and you build a community feeling with other participants. At the end of this class series you will feel empowered to be the parent you want to be for your children, building a strong and healthy relationship that fosters their development in all areas of life.

Do I have to have a certain style of parenting to attend classes?
All backgrounds are welcome! Come into the class ready to learn, take what will work for you and leave the rest. With that said, my hope is that you can see the benefit of the evidenced-based practices outlined in class and incorporate attachment parenting into your style.
Who are these classes for?
Anyone who is interested in learning about gentle/positive/natural/responsive parenting and the 8 principles of Attachment Parenting is encouraged to attend! That may include expecting parents, families who are continuing to grow, grandparents, caregivers, professionals, or anyone else looking to expand their knowledge of attachment parenting.
Do I have to buy the Attached at the Heart book to take the Attached at the Heart classes?
No. However it is highly recommended. The book is going to provide more in-depth information as well as serve as a reference for the future. While you do not need the book to take the class I encourage you to add it to your at-home library.
Can I bring my child to class?
Babies under 1 are welcome to attend. I do encourage you to consider how your learning is impacted when your attention is divided. Because of the pace of the class, the depth of the information, the personal sharing, and out of respect for others in the learning environment, older babies and children are unable to attend. Please contact me if you would like to speak about childcare options.
I am taking the class individually in-home, can my child(ren) be present then?
For those taking the class individually I encourage you to think about how you may learn with your attention divided. Ultimately though, I will leave that decision up to you.
I am interested in taking the class but I am not sure that I can afford to take it. What should I do?
Contact me with any concerns. We will discuss a possible payment plan or other arrangements that may be able to be made.
Can I gift classes or webinars to someone?
What an incredible gift to give to someone you care about! Yes, you absolutely can gift classes and webinars! Contact me and we can get that set up!
