A necessary time to reflect on our habits with my children and to correct them. It really helped me with the active listening. Before answering right back to my kids I take some time to really listen to them then think about it and only then answer them.
These evening meetings were not only few hours of deep learning, but also a nice moment to share with peers about all the common situations we all have experienced with our kids. You feel sometimes much less alone and get more motivated to change your behavior when needed.
I like sharing the experience of being a mother with other parents. This workshop gave me the feeling that we are not alone facing difficulties with our kids; furthermore it helped me to understand that those issues are normal and taking part of the child's development. It gave keys to better deal with them in order to feel more confort and less conflict among the family. I would say that this workshop brought an harmony that I am very grateful for.
The course is really informative. It's also very effective. Anne is able to take us through Active Listening, I-Messages, Conflict resolution in just a few weeks. It helps us be aware of our parenting problems. All the techniques we learned in class do need practice.
I feel this course should be a pre-requisite for new parents. It has helped me to shape the way I view other people's needs. I have become more confident about my own feelings, thus respecting others has become easier...
Thank you Anne for these parenting courses! It is amazing to see what it can change so quickly in our family. It was a eye opener for me.My main learning was: to see the actions and behaviors we have with our kids as support to help them grow. From there, things were different, and I realized that was not about repeating a passed education or looking at my short term well-being. My mission was now much deeper: behaving in a way that helps my children flourish, have a good self-esteem, be connected with themselves and ready to face their life.My relationship with my kids have changed, I listen more to my their feelings and express mine more frequently. I could see the benefit very quickly as the family atmosphere is more relaxed. My boys told me after a few weeks that their dad is nicer, punishes and screams less.
These workshops have forever changed my perception of parent / child communication, and even my perception of communication in general. There is a perfect balance between practical exercises, exchanges and theoretical contributions. Anne leads the group with professionalism & great kindness. She guides the group with her expertise without putting ourselves in an inferior position. Her numerous trainings and experiences in various fields are definitely a plus; it considerably enhances her workshops. An unforgettable human experience.
I have attended Anne’s parenting workshop in which I’ve learned a lot.She is conducting the workshop with experience; she is adapting her pace to the group needs in a benevolent way keeping everyone motivated. I am really grateful.
I took Anne’s class in London. I could never thank her enough for what it has triggered in me. I think I was conscious that I needed to change something in the way I was communicating with my children. The workshop gave me answers I was looking for and practical tools. Anne is very involved while remaining empathetic, very motivating while respecting the pace of everybody. In short, a deep appreciation and at the same time a frustration of not being able to continue with her as she is leaving London.
I have attended the class leaded by Anne-Laure in the UK. Although I did do some parenting class before; the one conducted by Anne Laure has really change my family dynamic.I had a better understanding of my weaknesses, my issues and negative patterns I was bringing back home whilst raising my kids. (2 boys 2 & 4years old) Anne Laure is the most patient and empathetic person I have ever met – besides she has this positive and contagious energy that anyone – who has the chance to meet her – can benefit from. Basically we would have hoped she would continue to help us in London.
I have learned a lot from Anne-Laure’s parenting workshop.Reading parenting books is not enough and you need a professional to really embrace the training. I was lucky to be part of Anne-Laure’s group, she really has the skills to lead such training making sure everybody gets to share, listening to everyone with the right tone. I really appreciated her wisdom.Anne-Laure, thanks to you, my family is more serene. Your wise advices are missed!
