Wonderchild I: Parenting for a Healthy Future

Wonderchild II: Essentials for Parents


Fall 2007 we are only presenting Wonderchild 1, which is a 6 hour seminar divided into two parts. Wonderchild 1a and 1b. Wonderchild 1a is a pre-requisite for 1b.

This seminar always sells out and is met with great reviews. Reserve your spot early.

Wonderchild II will be presented in 2008


The interest in parenting children in a holistic, gentle and natural way has never been as high as it is today. More and more parents are asking questions about their children's well-being - not only their physical well being but their emotional, mental and spiritual well being.

With the work of pioneering neurophysiologists we are understanding how fundamentally important an infants' experience of its environment is, and as a child grows, it's interactions with other important adults. As parents and educators we must hold ourselves and the environment we surround our children with as worthy of imitation as a food for their minds and spirits as well as their bodies.

The movement to conscious parenting is growing. Through this conference we will discuss and learn about the comfort and security in a regular daily rhythm and how to develop that in today's busy world. We will learn about how to listen and truly be present for your child so that they know in their bodies and minds what it is to feel cherished. We will learn about nutrition for children, their special needs and how to bring them the nutrients they need to grow healthy and strong.

As the research in brain development brings us new information we are learning how vitally important a young child's experience of its world really is in the development of higher learning skills and the child's ability to grow into adulthood with a generous capacity for love and trust.

As a Naturopathic Doctor in private practice, I see young families for many reasons ranging from simple well-baby/child check-ins to chronic ear infections to ADHD and autism. Much of the work I do is re-educating parents with regards to non-toxic environments for their children, non-allergenic food, healthy, natural options for treating simple infections, implementing strong routines, gentle discipline and enthusiasm for a child's experience of the world.

Now I will bring my experiences to the public - to help you make healthy choices for your children!
