Would you like to transform your relationship with children?

Rev. Barbara Hribar

Conscious parenting, based on the Conscious Discipline Program of Dr. Becky Blailey, offers an opportunity for parents, grandparents and others who work with children to build a new bridge to meaningful relationships and cooperative children. Through conscious parenting, adults are supported in transforming their relationships with children through problem solving, compassion, freedom, structure, connection, confidence, enjoyment, life skills, cooperation and positivity.

Conscious Discipline is a multidisciplinary approach that integrates the brain stem, limbic system, and prefrontal lobes. The brain stem is responsible for our survival state. It is in feeling safe that we soothe our survival state. The limbic system is responsible for our emotional state. The only way to soothe an upset emotional state is through connection. The prefrontal lobes are responsible for problem solving and learning. We support the development of the prefrontal lobes as we ask the question, "What can I learn from this?" 

By consciously engaging in brain-body states within ourselves, we are provided with practical skills to manage our thoughts, feelings and actions. As adults become empowered with the ability to self-regulate, we can then teach the children in our lives to do the same. The principles of safety, connection and problem solving are all core to the Conscious Discipline Program.

Unity Spiritual Center is committed to transforming relationships with children. On Sunday, Sept. 22, from 1-2:30 p.m., Rev. Barbara Hribar will share an orientation session on Conscious Parenting based on the Conscious Discipline Program. This introductory session will provide participants a general knowledge of Conscious Parenting and support participants in understanding how to change in order to transform their experience with the children in their lives to be more joyful, positive and loving. 

Through the orientation, participants will receive information to help them to discern whether to take it deeper by attending three additional classes on Oct. 6, 13 and 20 from 12:45-2:45 p.m. A freewill offering will be received at the orientation session. The three additional classes will be offered for $45 for the series. If two or more family members sign up, the classes will be discounted to $35 each for the series.

Dr. Becky Bailey, founder of the Conscious Discipline Program, is internationally renowned for her brain research. She is dedicated to helping adults shift from being reliant on fear to transforming to a commitment of a loving relationship with children. Rev. Barbara Hribar has been trained in the science of Conscious Discipline. She has presented programs to several hundred teachers and parents through preschools, HeadStart, and at Unity of Medina.

The orientation session and additional classes will be held at Unity Spiritual Center Westlake, 23855 Detroit Road. For more information, or to register, visit www.unityspiritualcenter.com or call 440-835-0400.
