"I can't tell you how much I appreciate this class. It truly has done wonders for our family and for me as a mom... My husband has noticed a big difference with me and with the boys... I got more than I imagined I would have gotten [from this class]."

So, what is the class like? Each class is a conference call that lasts an hour and fifteen minutes. A few days before each call, I will send out my thoughts on that week's theme, and a link to that week's video footage. Each week has about 10-12 minutes of video footage of me interacting with the children (ages 1-5) in different ways. When the class-time comes, we call in to the conference call, and we watch the video footage together, stopping frequently for discussion and questions. Between classes, people can chat through an online discussion groups, and are given optional 'assignments.' Here's what one student said:
"...Love your teaching, the three layers of: watch the video, hear your comments on it and live question session, followed by written thoughts, and follow-ups to specific questions, it really creates a rich texture to the class...Every week has given me new ideas to try and made me more mindful of all the elements that go into this work."

I think that the video footage is part of what makes the class so unique and so useful. It's one thing to hear someone talk about what they do; it's another thing altogether to see them do it. And each week's video is so different! The first week is very inspirational: how to incorporate children in the tasks that make up Life, and why it feels so fulfilling to children when we do. People saw the footage and said, "I can do that!" The next week's video footage was totally different. The theme is Teach Children to Interact Graciously, and every single clip begins with someone shrieking. The week's themes are:
-Teach Children to Interact Graciously
-Make Mealtimes Special
-Smooth and Easy Transitions
-Create Nurturing Spaces
-Be Your Best Self
