Does any of this resonate with you?

  • I would like to say something ONCE instead of 5 times!

  • No matter what I say or how kindly I say it - it turns into an argument.

  • I worry all the time, and I need to change something fast!

  • Sometimes, I feel like I am too reactive or harsh with my child.

  • I wish I could break the negative cycle of yelling, nagging, and arguing.
  • I'm tired of feeling frustrated, exhausted or guilty.

  • My kids ONLY listen when I yell or threaten.

You are NOT ALONE!

Knowing what to say is where most parents get stuck. Words fail us because we're looking for solutions before we've made a connection. 


If your mind is focused on judging your child, fearing the worst, or gaining compliance - you're less likely to approach behavior with curiosity and compassion. There is ONE BIG reason why this happens. 


You can't change your language until you shift your perspective. Feeling unheard and misunderstood - we launch into auto-pilot, controlling our kids at the expense of their learning and our relationship.

I can't stop yelling.

They make me so angry!

Why can't they just listen?

When I learned to shift my focus from what I was assuming and interpreting - to what I was feeling and needing, I was able to transform the way I spoke to people - not just my child but - everyone in my life.

How? I had to get honest with myself about WHY I was so reactive. 

Lori has a gift for taking the ideas of conscious parenting and making them concrete by teaching us how to communicate in new ways. 
 Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Clinical Psychologist & Author of The Conscious Parent  

My husband and I just completed the Conscious Communication course and we just cannot thank you enough for the ways this course has affected our lives. We are seeing big changes. We had the instinct, the intention and the determination for conscious parenting, but lacked the skills and tools required to actually make it happen until now. A million times, thank you
 Danielle, Senini, Australia

I really feel like this is a miracle!! So many positive changes in our family thanks to you Lori!

Lori Petro has created a catalyst to ignite greater intimacy, consciousness, and truth within families and in turn, change our world. TEACH through Love is a powerful model - a true gem for parents and educators everywhere!! 
Annie Burnside, Author of Soul to Soul Parenting

Lori Petro, you are truly amazing! What a fabulous Q&A call. I feel a hundred times better and needed to hear every word you had to say. My heart thanks you for your compassion. I'm glad to be a part of this class and appreciate your work.
Lavanda Loncharich, Texas 

I just wanted to thank you for your course. It has been a wonderful defining point for my journey to effective, respectful communication. Everyone is benefiting from it! My son recently said, "You are different lately. It's like you are more interested in me!" I can imagine he feels this way because I now listen to him to understand him instead of having to defend my decisions as a parent or give in!! It is now safer for me to hear him out and let him tell me his wishes because I can validate his desires without giving him what he is asking for. And nobody gets mad! Thank you, Lori!
 Carolyn Magnussen, Norway

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Loved this class & I look forward to taking more of your classes! 
Kirista Berry, California

I have enjoyed the classes so much. Yesterday I was triggered and caught myself and began to investigate, found the needs and instead of beating myself up for them - my heart broke open and sobbing commenced. I have some hardened ideas beginning to be softened. Thank you!
Jana Massey, Tennessee  

This class is helping our family so much. I want you to know that I have read countless books and blogs, and talked to everyone around me for advice, but nothing compares to the perfect fit of this class for us. I am so happy to have concrete and practical methods to apply and real language that I trust to use! You are doing a most important job!!! Thank you! 
Yasmin & Billy Shaddox, California

I've got a framework for creating the kind of connection that you really want by helping you become more mindful, aware, and responsible for your words and actions!

I'm going to show you exactly how to:

become aware of your unconscious communication patterns.

notice how your language, attitude, and tone affect your relationships.

change your patterns and shift out of reactive thinking.


One of the reasons people fail to progress along a conscious parenting path is because of a lack of community support. I'm not going to let that happen to you. It's so important for your peace of mind and the well-being of your children that you have the resources you need to stay calm and empathetic. 

These companion materials will support you as you challenge yourself to be really clear in your requests and communicate with respect.

Working with Lori Petro in person has been an absolute gift from God! The monthly member support calls are invaluable!

Thanks for the gifts and your parenting knowledge. I see the difference in such a short time with my kids.
Susan, S., Vancouver B.C.

Excellent class today Lori!! Great information. Wonderful. So glad to be participating. SO glad to be raising my children on a conscious path. In the long run, it's really the easier way to parent for sure! My 8 & 12-year-old were listening in today and were raising their hands and answering your questions.
Judy Shannon, California


 I must say that I have taken many, many parenting classes and read many books over the last 27 years. I love how you teach everything and explain everything.
Michele Barmore

 Lori is really great at giving you very clear direction about what to do in your situation. Have no fear! Her knowledge of children’s developmental stages and the information she has combined with a generous heart make her an absolutely amazing resource. 
Jennifer Fitch, California

Many thanks for another superb talk. I know my students valued the information, and of course, so did.
