Parenting Workshops


Khalsa Montessori School is excited to partner with Martha Portilla of Mindful Parenting again this fall to offer the virtual Parenting Workshops! For the past nine years, Khalsa School has offered these workshops to current parents with the aim of supporting an effective home-school partnership in a Montessori culture.

KMS will offer two virtual workshops designed to equip you with new tools and ideas to tackle the challenges all parents face. The workshop materials are consistent with Khalsa’s Montessori philosophy and designed to help you learn effective discipline techniques, powerful communication strategies, tools to diffuse power struggles, and creative ideas for encouraging responsibility and independence. These virtual workshops are an excellent way to create consistency between school and home environments!

Past participants tell us they valued these tools and ideas for the formative years of parenting and found Martha’s coaching style to be very respectful and supportive.

Due to positive feedback, Parenting Workshops will continue to be held virtually! Participants will need to have access to a computer to attend these workshops.
