Welcome to Joyful Toddlers!

This space is about increasing our enjoyment of the young children in our lives through concrete action and by adjusting the lens through which we view them. My work comes out of LifeWays, which is inspired by Waldorf education. I welcome your comments, and questions about increasing your enjoyment of the children in YOUR life.

What past students are saying about the class:
"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.  The tips have been amazing and even just the act of being on the calls calms me.  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]."
                                                                -C.L., mother of 2
"Every week has given me new ideas to try and made me more mindful of all the elements that go into this work...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."
                                                                 -H.C., mother of 2 and Parent/Tot teacher
"I am sooooo happy with this class!! And so grateful for all that you are sharing with us. I can't tell you how many jems I have already taken from this course.  I want to say so much more but nap time is almost over!!! I think 'I love it' and 'thank you' sums it up."

                                                                 -T.H., mother of 3 and home-daycare provider
