Utilizing the Conscious Parent Method

My dear Kirsy first created a book club to educate her friends who were going thru tough times with their children. What a great concept to help moms all over the country. My name is Wendy and my son and I are very grateful for your positive parenting approach. You have helped me become aware on how disciplining my child is not the approach that would work for him. I now use a more positive approach and have learned how to be connected with him 365 days, 24/7. Call Kirsy because she has the knowledge. Why wait? When you can begin to have a positive parenting experience.
Thank you Ms. Kirsy. Your child-rearing message is truly revolutionary and very valuable not only to parents, but also to grandparents, nannies, educators and anyone else who impacts children’s lives. I hope you continue to disseminate the philosophy of kindness in education, and that it takes hold in the hearts and minds of all those who have children in their lives.
Also, I am very appreciative of the business advice in my efforts to create a child-friendly vocabulary building site. With your valuable help, I hope wordplaycenter.com will be up and ready for business by this summer; just in time to help parents maintain the previous school year’s gain through summer fun activities.
I was in need of a parenting change when I met Kirsy and I knew it. Prior to motherhood, I was known for being a calm, loving, peacemaker by my family and friends. As a mother of two children under 5 years old, I was ashamed at myself for losing it almost daily with my precious daughters. Kirsy invited me to join her in reading Dr. Shelfali's book, Out of Control , and I will be forever grateful for her guidance through the book and applying the concepts in my life. The conscious parenting method was basically a 180 degree shift in parenting for me. I used to say, "listen and obey", which now I realize was my polite way of saying, "it's my way or the highway". Using conscious parenting methods such as natural consequences instead of punishment and neutrality instead of becoming emotionally charged have allowed me to have a real connection with my children (and spouse!). Instead of crushing their spirits with my attempt of control and perfection, I have the tools now to allow their spirits to flourish and grow. I am aware and present in my children's lives now and in my own actions. Having Kirsy's outside perspective, personal and applicable examples, and support and experience throughout this parenting shift was key!
Thank you, Kirsy!
My name is Virginia and I am the Mother of our Blessing Joshua. Since I have been working with Kirsy, I have changed into a better person. I have learned a lot of patience and self-control. I have learned how to listen and how to communicate better with my son who is 3 years old. We are happier and enjoy life. God has sent Kirsy my way because He answers prayers.
Thank you Kirsy!!
