Echo Parenting Education Classes

Echo Parenting & Education teaches nonviolent parenting Philosophy and Practice on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings in Echo Park. Classes are held in both Spanish and English. Each class cycle is ten weeks long and held on an ongoing basis.  

There are also six week Parenting Series held at Art Zone in West LA and Hermosa Beach. 

There is also a Parent Support group, for those that have completed any of the ten week classes, that offers the opportunity to build on what was learned, problem solve and get empathy for our work as parents.

Discussion groups, theory, role-playing and specific problem solving and topics such as empathy and healing are part of the curriculum. The class gives adults a framework to think about their actions as parents and discover what children truly need to thrive as healthy human beings. Together they learn methods that teach them to create the best possible connection with children, emphasizing respect for the life force of the child. They learn to become emotional coaches to their children; building unconditional acceptance, affection, appreciation, autonomy and attention. For most adults, it is a life changing experience.

Child Care is provided during class hours. Our caretakers are an integral part of our program, trained in the nonviolent teachings and support both parents and children. We are not able to provide childcare for children who are not able to walk on their own — if your child is not yet walking and you want to join our parenting classes you can bring your child with you into class.
