Nonviolent Communication (NVC) provides a set of concrete tools for supporting greater ease, harmony and trust in family relationships. With NVC, parents can experience compassion both toward their children and toward themselves, express themselves with power and care, find strategies for daily living that are more likely to meet everyone’s needs, and increase trust that everyone’s needs matter, even when we do not find strategies to meet everyone’s needs. By transforming parenting, parents can participate in raising a generation of children who have models for living peacefully and compassionately, and who have the skills and consciousness needed to contribute to a peaceful society.
