Low Demand Parenting for Radical Acceptance and Connection

Amanda Diekman


Low-demand parenting is a unique parenting method to drop demands and align expectations to connect with your struggling child. In this talk, parent coach and author Amanda Diekman will outline why we prioritize connection, how to define a demand, and how the low demand process is different than other parenting methods. You will walk away with insight, perspective and inspiration to try dropping demands in your family life.
