Anchored Parenting Workshops

Parenting is the hardest job on the planet. We have heard it but living it makes it so much more real.

Maybe you have had these thoughts or said these words…

“I had a vision of the parent I would be. I want to be loving, kind and connected to my family but I feel like my vision has changed and now my days are filled with driving, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning and managing meltdowns. I don’t feel like our family is connected or doing the things I believe a family should be.”

“I want to be a calm and centered parent. I have great intentions but by noon or earlier I feel frazzled and short with my kids.”

“I forget who I am anymore, and I feel lost.”

“I crave connection and peace in my home and my life.”

“My kids are experiencing anxiety, bullying or anger and I just don’t know how to help them.”

It is time to become an “Anchored Parent”.

What does it mean to be “Anchored”?

When we are anchored, we can become the point of stability for our children and our families. Just like an anchor on a ship, we can help our kids feel secure and grounded when they face challenges or obstacles. We can create households with less yelling, fewer tantrums and more connection.

What you will get from this program:

A place to share your thoughts, your dreams and your hardships with a group of caring people who understand where you are at. This is a judgement free zone.

Concrete strategies that you can bring to your home the next morning.

A roadmap that will guide you step by step to move towards a calmer, more connected home and family.

Resources that you will take with you and that can be re-used as your kids get older.

We don’t want to inspire you and then just leave you on your own. This course will include 4 weekly sessions where we will work through it together. Each week will build on the week before so you must be able to attend all sessions.

BONUS: If you live far away or are unable to attend in person, we are offering 10 online spots where you can participate from home during the session. You will be able to ask questions in the group in real time as if you were there.


Here is what our clients are saying:

I have had the pleasure of working with Kari both personally and professionally. I am continued to be amazed by Kari’s knowledge and her ability to connect with both kids and parents! I have learned so many practical skills and get very excited at every opportunity we have for her to present. She has made such a difference in my personal and professional life and I cannot thank her enough for all of her hard work!

An AMAZING workshop! Everyone could benefit from immersing themselves in this material around trauma. What stuck with me was ‘to make an impact on someone, especially a child, there needs to be a strong connection, stability and safety. Correction won’t happen unless there is trust and hope.

Christine - Family School Enhancement Counsellor

Every time I go and listen to Kari talk I am blown away with all the knowledge. Learning about kids who “flip their lid” and understanding the behaviours has moved mountains in my household. The last course I went to was “Be The Anchor.” I actually went twice and both times I take something else out of it to better myself and my kids. Thank you so much Kari.

Holly Maier - Parent

I attended the highly informative, engaging, and inspiring Be the Anchor workshop put on by Kari Lotzien. As a parent, there are many questions on a day-to-day basis that we encounter, including the classic, “Am I doing this right?” The workshop provided me a little confidence, and more importantly, the tools to understand that I need to be there for my child in the way he needs. The world of parenting is tough, but Lotzien, in her comedic relief and informative manner, made me realize that we are not alone in that feeling. Walking away from the presentation I felt supported and refreshed. I would recommend this workshop to any parent.

Jessica Jones - Parent

Overall, extremely pleased with your session today. Lots of ideas shared that I can bring into my classroom and it got me reflecting on my own attitudes and beliefs. I appreciate your REAL suggestions and solutions and all the resources shared. Thank you for your wisdom. You were terrific!

Jen M. - Teacher

Kari is SO easy to listen to. As a kindergarten teacher, I always come away with REAL ideas I can use tomorrow. Great stories and a good sense of humour all add up to an extremely worthwhile day.

Wenda D. - Kindergarten Teacher

I loved the stories and link to real life experiences! I wrote so many notes and hardly even doodled! That tells you how engaged I was!

Ashley - Kindergarten Teacher

You were a breath of fresh air! No fluff, just simple strategies that we can all use and what ALL educators need to hear.

Corey - Teacher

Kari is a mass of compassionate, caring knowledge. I love her approach and attitude.
