Creating a new Paradigm for Childhood

I don't know about you, but I'm here to change the world. I have big vision and big dreams and a lot of passion about how to make the world a better place and I'm ready to put them into action in a MUCH BIGGER WAY than I have until now.

I want to change the paradigm of childhood. I want to create a world in which children are truly seen,valued and respected and where the cultural norms and societal institutions actually reflect that.

I recently read that the fastest growing population on anti-depressants is KINDERGARTENERS!!! Something is seriously out of balance when we're putting kindergarteners on anti-depressants!

So how am I changing the paradigm of childhood?

I have an awesome opportunity to train with and become an instructor with Social Pathways- Social Pathways is a school based program designed to address social conflict (including bullying) in a way that teaches, heals, and uplifts all parties involved. It's a perfect fit for my skills and experience and would support me in furthering my mission of creating a New Paradigm for Childhood, a paradigm that builds relationships of mutual respect and cooperation (between younger and older people) and promotes freedom and self-determination for society's youngest members.

I'm working with parents in classes, workshops and private sessions, to do the inner work and gain the outer tools to build quality, mutually-respectful relationships with their kids. I'm supporting parents connecting to and contributing to their own needs so they can actually be present with their kids. I'm working on building stronger community among families, because we are tribal and everyone's wellbeing depends on a greater support and social networks! I'm bringing the language, tools and practice of Nonviolent to families.
There are just the beginnings... I want to expand this work much more and to reach a much broader audience!

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN! I'd love it if you'd join me in doing this!
In order to build my work and my passion into something that can grow and expand and also be sustainable I need support for this.
Like I said, I'll be training with Social Pathways so I can bring this work to schools. I'd love your support in connecting to schools where I can bring this work and also in funding my training and costs that will allow me to do this.

I've also singed up to work with an Award-winning business coach to help me take my life and business to the next level and to share my gifts and skills in a much bigger way. This is an opportunity to bring my work and my message world-wide! I'm great at my work with people, with understanding kids and how they are affected, I'm not so clear about how to build my passion into a thriving, successful business that can support the kind of change I want to make in the world. That's why I'm working with a skilled professional in that area! I've covered some of my costs for this but need additional funding to do this.

Please consider making a contribution to help me share my gifts with the world in a really BIG way and to truly change the paradigm of childhood!
