I'm a mama to 3 boys. I was raised in a harsh authoritarian way and I don't want to replicate this. Hand in hand parenting gives invaluable advice and support to folk like me who don't have the knowledge to parent lovingly and gently, as it wasn't our experience. It gives reminders to be attached and loving even when we feel like screaming - or worse - at children, reminding us gently and firmly that its often our own stuff thats getting in the way of attachment. lots of great articles and posts on facebook too.

Hand In Hand Parenting offers a wonderful set of parenting tools that break away from the traditional methods in which I was raised (blame, shame, guilt, non-connection). Instead, it offers parents a way in which to connect whole-heartedly with their children through a child's best and not-so-best times. Hand in Hand Parenting helps parents to truly understand that when children act out/misbehave/don't listen/etc. it's because of a loss of connection....a need of the child that is not being met. It is our duty as a parent to maintain, re-establish and foster those connections. Hand in Hand Parenting has made me a better parent that sees my children for who they are.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Through the various tools, I have deepened my connection with my son, who at times can be aggressive. In fostering our connection, I have seen some of his aggressive behaviors diminish.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

nothing!

Hand In Hand supports parents and children. They offer information and support that make you feel connected. My relationship with my children is amazing and partially because of what I have learned through Hand In Hand. I am thankful for finding them.

I discovered Hand in Hand Parenting about 20 years ago when my youngest child was 6. My children date my parenting by pre and post contact with this organization! I learned how to set limits while being kind. and i learned the importance of allowing my children emotional release.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

in my family and with the other families I've been able to assist.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would make it big enough to influence parenting everywhere. I believe that when children can be treated in the way recommended by this organization, the world will change dramatically in a generation.

Hand in Hand is simply wonderful at helping parents be better parents and there is little that is more important than that. Better parents raise emotionally healthy children into emotionally healthy adults and that helps all of us! I get frequent inspiration for dealing with my son and other children from reading their email list and their articles. All parents and children can benefit from the wisdom of Hand in Hand Parenting.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My day to day life with my child.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

never be able to do what Patty Wipfler can do!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

How much it helps the relationship between my child and myself.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Wonderful, caring, kind, and committed people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open up lots more offices so more people could have access to training without travel. Donate their books and brochures to libraries so more people could have access to them.

Ways to make it better...

They were local to me.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting their information out to more parents.

One thing I'd also say is that...

My life, my child's life, and many other people's lives are better because of the work of Hand in Hand. There's a trickle down effect that touches many more lives than just the people who actually get to do their classes.
