and learn the power you already have to shift your family from resentment and defense to empathy, understanding and forgiveness.


About Ingrid Bauer

Ingrid Bauer has been teaching and writing about compassionate parenting for over two decades. She first began working with children with emotional and developmental special needs 35 years ago, and turned to working directly with parents after she herself became a mother in 1985. Ingrid is tri-lingual and although she has an Honours degree in Languages, Literature and Theatre, she considers life, relationships, travel, nature, and parenting to be her primary teachers.

An activist for unhindered birth and breastfeeding, Ingrid authored a book on meeting infants’ needs in 1999 (Diaper Free!), as well as numerous published articles. When she discovered NVC in 2000, she was thrilled to find a practice that supported her in her desire to live compassion and grow world peace from the roots by addressing how we raise and interact with children, and how we practice peace in creating communities that nourish and care for each individual. For this reason and as a mother of four children aged 5, 11, 15 and 27 years, she is dedicated to sharing Compassionate Communication with parents and families, and much of her work addresses this arena.

Ingrid embraces living NVC as her spiritual practice, as well as her grassroots social change work. She is particularly interested in exploring NVC within the context of family, community, interdependence, and the whole web of life. Ingrid offers workshops, teleclasses, retreats, and family camps, with a special focus on parenting, as well as leadership training. She has a strong interest in nature connection and wilderness awareness and how this impacts children, communities, and cultural repair, and sometimes collaborates with her husband, Jean-Claude Catry to offer training or camps related to this.

Ingrid has been leading or co-leading the international Parent Peer Leadership Program since 2007 (assisting in 2006). Ingrid works with individuals, educators and schools, community organisations, peace groups, parenting and homeschooling groups, First Nations (Aboriginal) communities, and more. She also offers private mentoring, consulting, and parent coaching. Ingrid lives with her family on an island on Canada’s west coast.

Purchase Now to listen to guest Dr. Laura Markham along with hosts Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker as they discuss how to get kids cooperating without yelling, bribes, threats or punishment. API has invited Dr. Laura to share with us about how we can stop yelling and start connecting, including:

  • Why attachment is the foundation of your child’s ability to manage herself, from babyhood right through the teen years.
  • Regulating your own emotions so you can help your child.
  • Why kids misbehave — and how to help them WANT to cooperate.
  • What the last thirty years of research tell us about the kind of discipline that helps kids turn out great.
  • How to set effective limits — and when it’s ok to “give in.”
  • Why your relationship with your child is the most important factor in effective discipline.
  • Helping kids process their emotions.
  • How to use play to get better behavior from your child.
  • Why Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is more important to your child’s success in life than IQ

Send your questions for Dr. Laura to apilive@attachmentparenting.org – and a free copy of Dr. Laura’s new book will be given to someone selected among the questions submitted.


About Dr. Laura Markham
