Parenting is hard enough when you had good role models in your own parents. But what if your parents were absent, neglectful, or abusive? Are you doomed to repeat their mistakes with your own children? As a parenting expert and someone who experienced negative parenting firsthand, Rick Johnson answers that question with an emphatic “No!”
Anyone can be a good parent, even if they didn’t have one. In this compassionate and practical workshop, Johnson shows you how to identify the ways in which your past experiences affect your own parenting choices. Then he walks you through the process of healing the emotional and spiritual wounds toxic parenting has left behind. Finally, he outlines healthy habits and practices to take the place of the negative ones that were modeled for you.
Learning Objectives: 
  • Understanding the effects of abuse on children 
  • Learning how to reprogram our brains to overcome the effects of abuse
