Parent Workshop offered for Spring Creek and Awbrey Park Families

Dear Spring Creek and Awbrey Park Families,

We are very excited to offer four parent workshops based on the concepts of Conscious Discipline®. Come learn, connect and explore approaches that empower

you with skills to help create a safe, connected, problem-solving environment for

your family. Spring Creek and Awbrey Park staff members will be leading these

workshops. Attendance at all four sessions is encouraged but not required. All

sessions will take place on Zoom from 6-7:30pm starting on Monday, January

24th and are FREE!

This is an approach to parenting built around the science of crafting caring and

respectful relationships. An authentic, loving connection between parents/

guardians and their children is the root of a healthy, thriving relationship built on

trust and understanding. This is a great way to empower children to make

positive choices.

The 4 classes offered will be:

• Monday, January 24th- Introduction to Conscious Discipline. We’re all in

this Together

• Thursday, February 17th- Composure: Being the Person You Want

Children to Become

• April (To be scheduled)-Assertiveness: Setting Limits Respectfully

• May (To be scheduled)-Encouragement: Noticing, Accepting and

Connecting with Children

We will be offering gift cards to local restaurants and books/tools for each

session that you attend. Gift Cards will be sent to you AFTER you have attended

a session.

Please RSVP online at:

We will email you a reminder before each session with a link to the Zoom meeting.
