Peaceful Parenting Tips: How To Do Time-Ins

Many parents have a shared goal of raising kind and healthy humans, and taking time-ins is a research-proven way to reach that goal.

There is no perfect way to parent, but there are tools and habits we can practice to help us connect with our children before we correct them. 

Time-ins turn misbehavior into learning opportunities for children and adults alike to name, express, and manage their emotions. When children have a safe place to feel, they step into the power of their bodies, minds, and hearts, a place where we as adults can join them.
