My heart was lost and looking; looking for a way to treat children kindly and respectfully, but nowhere around me did I see what I was searching for, until I found Hand in Hand. Hand in Hand offers tools to be there for the little ones of the world, no matter what they do or feel or how they behave. It is truly unconditional love.
And as such, I have also learned about the goodness and potential of grown ups, from whom I lived in avoidance and fear.
And not least, it has helped me to love myself more fully, get in touch with my heart and my sensibility.
Hand in Hand changes the world one family at a time; it changed me, and now I go out into the world to do my part.
Hand in Hand is a light in our way, but more than that, it allows us to see the light in us and in others; that is why it is changing the world.
I am grateful for getting to know you,it's life-changing . For the first time in my life I feel very close to my family (both husband and daughter) and it's all thanks to you!
I joined Hand in Hand when my middle child was about 1 yo and crying every night for ours. I was exhausted and felt lost because I didn't know the reason this was happening. My response was harsh and unloving and I didn't like that about myself. I was set up to be a great mom, but I just lost my way. Hand in Hand helped me rediscover the goodness in me and my children, offered me spot on tools to deal with everyday challenges both with children and adults, and made me feel like part of a tribe that always has my back. Thank you for making your knowledge known to the world!
The simple yet effective parenting tools I've learned from Hand in Hand have improved my life and my relationship with my children. The support I receive daily makes all the difference in the way I deal with daily challenges. I benefited from a Scholarship from Hand in Hand to learn their parenting approach and for that I am most gratefull.
I joined the Hand in Hand Parenting Membership and Support page about one year ago at a time when I was feeling so stressed and overwhelmed as a parent and was not happy with the way this was affecting my responses to my kiddos. It has been life-changing and absolutely the very best decision I have made as a parent! The methods they teach feel so right and don't feel like more things to do and work on, but rather offer me so much support and encouragement. Their instructors are so incredibly on-point and generous with their time and expertise, and this is an organization that is making a huge difference in the world for good!! Thank you, Hand in Hand!
Hand in Hand has deeply changed my understanding of my role as a mother. It has taught me how healthy relationships and emotions look like. It has increased my ability to heal myself and become a healing presence for other people. I really cherish this organisation and I'm most grateful for its existence. I'm honoured to be part of it.
I was trying my best to be a 'compassionate' parent when my son was little, but I felt like I didn't know what to do in the moment. Then I discovered Hand in Hand Parenting and the 5 Listening Tools, which changed my relationship with my adopted son and our lives. Here was an approach that taught me how to get support for myself so that I could support my son and deepen our connection. I have since become a Certified Instructor and am continually amazed by the amount of resources Hand in Hand offers to parents for FREE and the commitment Hand in Hand has to reach under served communities all around the globe. It may seem idealistic, but I truly believe that if every parent had access to the kind of support that Hand in Hand provides, we could raise a world full of peacemakers.
Hand in Hand Parenting has been my life line as a parent and has dramatically changed my family for the better. I really don't know where I'd be with out their support. I use and think about what I learned from the classes EVERYDAY. I truly think that what they teach has the power to transform not just families but the world. Our world needs kindness and connection and our brining more of both to our own families is the best place to start. I can't thank Hand in Hand enough.
