Parenting classes start next month at The Nest in Grass Valley

The Union health columnist Savannah Hanson will offer a series of parenting classes next month at The Nest in Grass Valley.

Hanson, who is also a counselor and therapist, said the series will look at ways to restore peace in the home from a period of stress and disharmony.

“Disharmony in the home creates stress, sadness and hurt feelings,” Hanson said. “Many parents feel at wit’s ends how to restore peace to their relationship with their children or how to utilize appropriate boundaries and discipline.

“Yet, when we become conscious of reactive patterns within our relationships, we can begin to actually use the discord as a red flag leading to greater inner freedom through dismantling the charge locked in cellular memory,” Hanson added. “As we use daily triggers to defuse internal bombs of unconsciousness, very often the child’s behavior shifts in radical ways, leading to increased intimacy, harmony and love.”

The class will explore the above topics with specific tools and insights to create a potential paradigm shift in the concept of parenting itself, Hanson said.

An introduction will be offered Tuesday, Oct. 11, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Cost is $30. People may sign up for the full series, which six Tuesdays from Oct. 11-Nov. 15, 6:30 – 8 p.m. This costs $145. The classes will be at The Nest, 107 West Main St., Suite B Grass Valley.
