Need Childcare? We Are Meeting This Thursday, February 19th at 9:30 a.m.

Need Childcare for This Week’s Meeting?

For many of us this week is a school vacation break and we need your help to get an accurate childcare head count!

If you plan to attend, need childcare, and haven’t already done so, we ask that you email Melissa at Melissa dot Meyers at gmail dot com to confirm how many kids you will be bringing and what their ages are.
We will have a classroom prepared for school-aged children in addition to our usual set up for younger kids and babies.
Looking forward to seeing you this Thursday for continued conversation with Bev on the power of connecting with our children!

More On Connecting with Our Children: This Thursday, February 5th at 9:30 a.m.

It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.
 — John Joseph Powell

This week we’ll talk more about deepening connections with our children. Children need to know that we:

  • want to be near them (proximity)
  • have things in common (sameness)
  • have their back and that they are wanted (belong/loyalty)
  • accept and value them (significance)
  • love them no matter what (love)
  • seek to understand them (known)
We’ll circle back to the talk reflection hand out from the last meeting for further discussion.
Come share what helps you be more intentional in connecting with your children. See you this Thursday!
Warmly,
Bev

A special thank you to Sonja Ross for organizing some tasty lasagna making at the Grace kitchen. A group of our moms chef-ed up approximately twenty lasagnas, helping to stock our freezer supplies for times when our group members might have a need for a meal delivery. Mama Mia and thank you!

The Power of Connecting with Our Kids: Bev’s Current Series of Talks
Connection means we give our kids our attention, that we respect them enough to listen to them, that we value their contribution to problem solving, and that we communicate to them that we are on their side, whether we like the way they are acting, or not.” — Dan Siegel
We had a great discussion last week on the power of connecting with our kids. We are in the midst of talking about how we can come alongside our kids with guidance and nurturing as they grow, giving them the attention, respect, and awareness Siegel talks about.
A healthy dose of compassion towards ourselves and our children is a must as we navigate this often complex journey called motherhood.

Join us for more on this topic at our next meeting on February 5th!

See you then!
