Requirement for Membership

You must have a child born in 2005 or later and live in downtown Manhattan, participate & attend events and playgroups in Manhattan.

Bowery Babes is a downtown NYC nonprofit mothers group dedicated to supporting women from pregnancy through the early years of motherhood and beyond. Our mission is to support, educate and enrich parents and create a welcoming, close-knit family community within downtown Manhattan.

Bowery Babes is both an “on” and “offline” community. Our online forum allows mothers to be in contact with other moms on every topic under the sun. Each member joins an Age & Stage so she can be part of an even more intimate group and communicate with other families with children the same age.

In addition to this extremely active online communication, our members network through playgroups, meet ups and other Bowery Babes events such as educational talks, webinars, working-moms lunches, philanthropy and social events.

Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids: How to help children WANT to cooperate without yelling, bribes, threats or punishment

Are you tired of battling with your child? Do you wish you knew how to get your child cooperating without yelling and threats? Are you trying to find the sweet spot between spoiling and strict?

Dr. Laura Markham gives you practical everyday strategies to help you raise a child who WANTS to cooperate, by working with your child rather than trying to manipulate or control. No parent is peaceful all the time, but it's completely possible to create a more peaceful home where affection, connection and humor help you resolve conflict happily, and where kids WANT to follow your lead.

In this talk, you'll have a chance to ask questions about your own parenting, and you'll learn:

-Why children misbehave -- and how to help them WANT To Cooperate without yelling, threats, bribes or consequences
-What research shows about how children develop self-­discipline
-The four power tools you can use to connect with children and help them with their emotions
-Why yelling and timeouts actually cause more misbehavior
-How you can create the relationship you want with your child

Two Hour Talk includes 1 hour Q and A to help parents apply these ideas to their own families.
