POSITIVE PARENTING FROM THE BARN

POSITIVE PARENTING FROM THE BARN is a personal look at parenting from a horse’s point of view. The course is an interactive equine assisted learning activity that takes learning from the classroom into the practical arena of living and breathing, feeling, and sometimes frustrating equine mentors. Activities help us to discover and understand ourselves as parents by accepting, challenging, and teaching us about the way we relate to one another. The outdoor experience, and unexpected responses of each horse’s unique personality help us to gain insight directing the course for becoming the best parent we can be.


WHEN: Monday, September 14, 21, 28, & October 5, 9am to 1pm or
Monday, September 14, 21, 28 and October 5, from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.

RAISING CAPABLE KIDS

RAISING CAPABLE KIDS is a program designed to equip parents, teachers, coaches and mentors for the task of preparing young people to be resilient, intelligent. The focus on three basic perceptions and four skills builds problem-solving skills and prepares young people to face life’s challenges and navigate relationships at home and the work place. It is based on the research proven program, "Developing Capable Young People" by Stephen Glenn and Jane Nelson. Studies of those who have taken the program show increase test scores in school work, even if only one parent attends. For complete details see http://www.capabilitiesinc.com/

Former participants have said:
“I love the idea of parenting 'Capable Kids' that there is actually joy in parenting, not just chores and work. It’s never too late to change for the better, but it does take knowing how and practicing what you learn.”
“It is beneficial for any age parent or grandparent, teacher or mentor.”
“It has taken the frustration out of discipline.”
”This was all new to me.”
“I loved the idea of self-reliant children instead of self-indulgent children. It really helps focus on being a contribution to the family.”
“The horses created a memorable experience that I didn’t expect.”
“I would wholeheartedly recommend this course!”

Equine assisted activities play a large part of the unique learning experience, providing a practical and in the moment interaction with living breathing, feeling and sometimes frustrating horse mentors. Participants will also have two books for reference, a workbook, and each activity is accompanied by professional video instruction. The multi-dimensional instruction provides optimal learning methods for each person.

WHEN: October 12, 19, 26, November 2, and 9 from 5 PM to 7:30 PM
WHERE: 4 miles south of Ostrander, Mn. on county road 1 at Turning Point Stable.
FEES: Books may be purchased or borrowed for refundable $26.
