About the Program

Our hearts fully embrace the notion that we need to accept our children for who they are.
Our heads worry that if our children aren't industrious, well-rounded, good in school and sociable, their future may be in jeopardy. Both responses come from a good place. We love our kids and want the best for them. This class will explore ways to privilege our heart and quiet our head.

Judy Elkin,
