I live in rural NSW Australia, I see that this tread is about 6 years old. I am hoping that you will still read my post.
I am passionate about NVC Compassionate Communication, I am also passionate about Permaculture. They go hand in hand together.
Additionally, Connected Parenting (Patty Wipfler) and homeschooling are also wonderful.
Altogether these ingredients mix to make a wonderful harmonious life greater than the sum of the individual components.
I understand that practice groups for NVC are very useful for making the transition to this new paradigm of thought.
While my daughter was young I enjoyed reading to her and I found that I was able to edit and filter out the jackal language and the black and white ridged concepts.
Now my daughter loves to read independently. I have noticed in her a change and I see her using jackal concepts and language regularly.
I have not found any families locally who are practising NVC.
I am grieving and need support.
Does anyone know any books that use giraffe language?
How do other families support their children in NVC while homeschooling?
