Conscious Discipline class

Conscious Discipline®

This transformational program focuses on adults first and children second as trainers provide parenting skills that build on self-empowerment and safety. This proven program, which includes the use of Feeling Buddies and Loving Guidance, gives children the ability to develop discipline in themselves so that they don’t feel controlled but connected within conflict.
The teachers, parents and children of the Hobe Sound Early Learning Center have embraced this program for the last two years. The goal is to continue this long-term, community-focused training in Hobe Sound and other child-friendly agencies throughout the region that serve children with severe trauma, neglect and/or stress.

Camp Weloki

Working with fellow non-profit Children and Families Inc. in St. Louis since 1993, this camp helps children regulate their emotions and feel empowered in their lives and relationships with others, their parents and the world. This personal growth course is focused on girls ages 8 to 17. Each year, Bart’s Blue Star sponsors children who would benefit greatly but otherwise cannot afford to attend the camp. Plus, Ginny Luther also instructs at the camp each year. Learn more about this wonderful program at
