Popular descriptions of chaos theory say that a butterfly fluttering in a meadow in Perth may set off a storm in New York.  

Many parents feel that their parenting is as unpredictable as that butterfly's effect. 

Everywhere you turn, there are contrasting exhortations on what you should do to be "good parents." How is a person to wade through the myriad suggestions and figure out what truly works for them and their child? 

How do you parent to increase the chances that the ripple effect of your present decisions shape a future full of possibility, joy, and purpose for your children and for the planet they will inherit?

In this series, we will identify what is important to each of us as parents and what values we hope our children will embrace. 

Grounded in an appreciation of what we value, we will explore:

  • How a deep connection to your values can serve as a compass guiding you through the many parenting choices ahead 
  • The relationship between your present day parenting actions with the implicit messages they convey to your child, and your desired outcomes for your children
  • How to apply this frame to your parenting dilemmas so that you gain real experience in balancing your child's present moment needs with the long term vision you and they are holding!
  • Video and audio recordings of every session
  • Forum discussion available in the classroom
  • Lifetime access to the classroom
