“Be The Change Challenge”

Ready for the “Be The Change Challenge?”



Free monthly gathering in Boulder/Longmont for parents of challenging children…

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, June 11, 9:30-11 am.

I am excited to share that I have found a new venue for our group! The Smiling Moose has been very accommodating and friendly, but in our new location we will have privacy in a lovely, warm space in the ACL’s Learning Center, in the Gunbarrel area between Boulder and Longmont. (ACL stands for Association for Community Living, and it is an advocacy and training organization for people with disabilities.) Join us for friendship and fun, strength and support, and REAL (sometimes Radical) solutions to our most pressing problems!

Let’s grow our capacity for compassion…for our children, ourSelves, our families, the world…

Let’s put our most pressing concerns out on the table, and receive empathy, and then ideas and possible solutions. The wisdom is in the Group, so why not take advantage of it?

Hope to see you there!


Greetings! I’d like to invite everyone to an exciting program being offered here at Radical Acceptance Parenting…

It’s “The Be The Change Challenge”!

A lively, always FREE, monthly gathering for parents who are ready to take powerful steps toward being the person they know they can be, and the parent their child needs.

While the program is open to everyone, I’m anticipating that it will most appeal to foster and adoptive parents who are raising challenging children, and who know that they have within the ability to live empowered, satisfying lives, regardless of the challenges that their path may bring. 

I’ll be offering content, for example…

  • Sustainable Parenting: recognizing, preventing, and healing parent burnout
  • my proprietary model of the three layers of stress and how to work with them
  • how brain development of the young child is impacted by early trauma/neglect
  • using relationship-based, trauma-informed parenting such as Beyond Consequences to heal yourself, your child, and your family
  • healing your own childhood issues (trauma and developmental wounding) using the most current trauma-informed and brain-based modalities
  • using EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) for maintaining your sense of well-being
  • how to keep your cool around the topic of school
  • Nonviolent Communication as a tool for inner and family harmony
  • dealing with those people who just don’t get it
Sometimes I will invite guest speakers on topics such as…
  • nutrition and well-being
  • accessing post-adoption support services
  • the impact of using medications as treatment for challenging behavior
  • being a catalyst for change and advocacy for adopted and foster kids in the school system
And always, there will be conversation, people who “get you,” and just plain fun!
