It is my wish, vision and belief that children have the right to live free from physical punishment, verbal abuse, emotional manipulation and without the fear caused by the use of shame, blame, judgment and guilt.

Education from the Heart: to the Heart of the Matter

Use the powerful tools of the models of Crystal Clear Communication (NVC) and NLP

This is what you will learn:

"Carla is a wonderfully bright and shining gem in my life.  With her guidance I have reacquainted myself with a life filled with love, laughter and joy.  She holds a vast clinical, scientific and spiritual knowledge which she lovingly shares to heal and transform those willing to listen and learn.  She is authentic and articulate; a real treasure to anyone looking for personal transformation.

Many of you have heard me speak of Carla Van Walsum's workshops and how wonderful I think she is.  I met Carla via her "Happy Children, Happy Home" workshops.  She is based in Boca and works in what some consider to be an alternative style.  
I really believe in the work that she's doing.  She certainly helped me and my family discover (or re-discover) how to live with more love, laughter and happiness.  I can say, though, that in working with Carla, life is much more pleasant and less stressful for us now than before...Katie Starkey, Ft Lauderdale

Did you know that science shows that the punishment & reward causes:

* loss of creativity

* loss of selfesteeem and self appreciation

* anger and frustration, not really the best stimulance for kind and nice behavior

* loss of trus in self and others

* dependant on approval of others


Your children are not your children
They are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself
They come through you but not from you
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you
You may give them your love but not yout thoughts
For they have their own thoughts
You may house theior bodies but not their souls
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow
Which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams
You may strive to be like them
But seek not to make them like you For life goes not backward nor larries with yesterday
You are the bows from which your children
The arder sees the mark upon the path of the infinite
and he bends you with his might
that his arrows may go swift and far
as living arrows are sent forth
let our bending in the arders hand be for gladness;
For even as he loves the arrow that flies,
so he loves also the bow that is stable
Kahlil Gibran
