Family Matters archives July 21 – July 28 – August 4

Summer is a busy time, huh?!

Family Matters will be playing a few archived shows these weeks to make room for other amazing things coming up. See below for those links and archives.


Thing 1:

We are getting things ready for a one-day only workshop called Parenting Matters! with Ingrid Bauer, speaker, author, and Nonviolent Communication Trainer in Toronto August 17th, 2013.

If this seems like short notice, well, it is. We’re hoping to attract 30 parents, like you, in the middle of the summer, to come join us for inspiration and to be uplifted.

  • Nourish connection in your family
  • Respond effectively to parenting challenges
  • Create a relationship with your child based on cooperation, connection and trust
  • Transform your understanding of boundaries and limits
  • Guide and lead without force
  • Embody your deepest values in your daily interactions
  • Become the parent / educator you want to be!

THIS IS GOING TO BE FANTASTIC! Please go to the Events Page right away and register!


Thing 2:
