The Gift of Being a Flawed Parent

Did you know that API hosts live teleseminars on important parenting topics with some of today’s most noted experts? In the past, the API Live teleseminars have featured Dr. Kathleen Kendall-Tackett discussing parental depression, Dr. Bob Sears chatting about autism spectrum disorders, Mothering magazine editor Peggy O’Mara discussing how we can get real with ourselves and our children, Ina May Gaskin speaking on the topic of the gift of loving your best birth, and much more.

The next API Live teleseminar will be held on Monday, May 24th at 9pm ET where Lu Hanessian will be speaking about “The Gift of Being a Flawed Parent” – How to Use Our Mistakes, Conflicts and Fears to Raise Kids with Big Hearts, Emotional Security and Inner Resilience. Lu will be joined by API co-founders and authors of the book Attached at the Heart to discuss how:

  • our “flaws” are actually pathways to raising resilient, secure, connected kids
  • understanding the brain science of attachment can give us our roadmap for reconnection even if we came from a painful past with insecure attachments
  • we can create or “earn” a secure attachment so we can offer this to our kids

  1. I could certainly learn something from this topic. Everyday I struggle with being a gentle and loving parent and then when faced with a hard moment (like 2 children screaming in the grocery store), I remember that I am human and not perfect . . . this is empowering because it makes me feel okay about asking others for help.

    1. Yes Stacy, whenever you register for the event you are sent a link to download the MP3 after the archived recording is available. This is true for all of the API Live teleseminars so if you see one from the past that piques your interest, you can purchase the MP3. Thanks!
