    The Parenting Path is a parenting model, developed by Darlynn Childress, that helps parents become empowered to create lasting peace in their homes. Darlynn, a former middle and high school teacher and trained parent educator, created The Parenting Path because she was frustrated by the limited models available to parents; models that either focused solely on behavior modification or solely on emotional development. Darlynn wanted a complete toolbox to use in parenting her two sons. 
    The Parenting Path is a 4-step model designed for handling tricky parenting moments. The steps in The Parenting Path are CALM, CONNECT, LIMIT SET, CORRECT.
    CALM: Parents learn how to calm their mind when angry or overwhelmed.
    CONNECT: They learn an easy way to access compassion and teach children about emotional regulation.
    LIMIT SET: Parents learn how to set limits that work.
    CORRECT: Parents know how to follow-up with correction that develops resilience.

    The World through My Dyslexic Eyes: Battling Learning Disabilities Depression and Finding Purpose

    The World through My Dyslexic Eyes: Battling Learning Disabilities Depression and Finding Purpose

    Join us for this powerful talk with author Peter Harrower who tells us about his dyslexia journey and his new book, "The World Through My Dyslexic Eyes."
    A word from Peter Harrower:
    "I have a Learning Disability and Dyslexia. Most of the time I felt like I wasn't normal. I don't think I’ll ever be normal.
    Compared to everybody I felt like an outsider. Kids would always ask, "Why are you in those extra classes and getting extra help?" This led to a lot of unwanted attention. That led to more unwanted feelings, embarrassment, and a lack of confidence in myself, which still affects me to this day at 28. 
    Join us to hear how Peter has persevered and found purpose and meaning throughout his dyslexia journey.

So informative!

This is the first podcast review I have ever written but I felt compelled to let people know what a great resource this is for anyone who suspects their child may be dyslexic. I have learned so much about how to be a better advocate for my child!
