FLV Presents: Handling Children’s Emotional Moments and Aggression
Hi FLVillagers! FLV is excited to welcome the new year by learning more tools to help us communicate consciously with our children. Our vision is to create a conscious parenting movement where our children evolve into unconditionally loving citizens of the Earth! If we take the time to nurture and cultivate this connection with our children now, we are instilling in them not only how they are to themselves but how they interact with others and the planet. If you think about it, we’re not raising children here,we’re raising adults. Please join us for our very first workshop in 2012. Happy New Year to our beautiful, ever-evolving village!
When children’s tensions result in big feelings and aggression—biting, hitting, pushing, kicking—both parent and child need tools. We’ll talk about the root causes of children’s emotional outbursts, how parents and caregivers can help the aggressive child, and how parents and caregivers can address their own tension as they handle difficult situations.

Please know that when there is something of value that FLV feels families can benefit from, we will allow the opportunity to purchase items after the workshop. Since conscious parenting is FLV’s primary goal in helping to co-create a conscious parenting movement, having easy access to these resources on hand is important to give these options for families that are interested. Please know you are not obligated to purchase any of these resources unless desired. Thank you.
