Testimonios

Este curso me ha servido como un impulso para la buena relación con mi hija y mi autoestima como madre. Me siento capaz de solucionar casi cualquier conflicto y no solo con mi hija, sino también con otros miembros de la familia. Me parece fundamental si quieres criar hijos emocionalmente sanos y autónomos.
Beatriz
Para mí el taller ha sobrepasado con mucho mis expectativas porque es realmente práctica, en el sentido de que, desde la primera sesión, puedes poner en práctica lo que vas aprendiendo y ver que realmente funciona. Al principio sale poco natural pero poco a poco lo he ido interiorizando y cada vez me sale más automática.
Ara
El curso es super dinámico e interactivo con muchos ejemplos y situaciones reales de la crianza de nuestros peques.
Sobre todo te hace más consciente de como influye una buena comunicación en lo que quieres obtener/lograr cuando te comunicas con tu hijo.
Mary
Ha sido muy gratificante. Pensé que iba a ser otra "chapa" más y me ha resultado muy útil tanto para mi niña, como con compañeros de trabajo y pareja.​
Mónica
Ha sido una manera de compartir experiencias, ver cómo gestionaba antes (mal) determinadas situaciones, aprender de la facilitadora Denise y mis compañeros, y manejar herramientas para establecer una mejor relación con los que me rodean.
Borja
Llegué al taller con la esperanza de no repetir las cosas o determinadas acciones que se usaron conmigo, en mi educación.
No solo he aprendido a alejarme de esas actitudes si no que me llevo una cantidad considerable de nuevas herramientas para vivir una educación más respetuosa, más armoniosa y seguramente más eficaz y feliz. Muchas gracias.
Carmen
Me fue muy útil el realizar el juego de rol, para ver qué sienten nuestros hijos cuando les tratamos de una determinada manera. Por ejemplo, en el de autonomía. Una vez realizado, te das cuenta de todo lo que intervenimos, y cómo se sienten ellos.

About the Facilitator

Hi! I’m Denise. I became a certified “How to Talk so Kids Will Listen” workshop facilitator after hearing about a study that showed training parents based on this workshop promoted children’s mental health.

Reading this study couldn’t have come at better time. After sharing with other parents the ups and downs of parenthood, I realized how much I enjoyed listening to their experiences and providing them with different resources to help them feel calmer and more confident in what they are doing. I want to help fellow parents to become the parents they want to be. A lot of times, we have this idealized version of the parent we want to be, but then life (and children) get in the way.

This is why I was so happy to come across this workshop. It brings the theory into practice. It gives parents hand-on, everyday tools they can easily apply to their families. It also understands that we are human beings; we have our good days and our bad days, and that’s okay.
