You are now part of a community of parents who are committed to using the Parenting by Connection tools in their family. Parenting is a difficult job, and not one you can do alone. We hope you’ll venture to connect with other member parents and set up a Listening Partnership for yourself. Every one of us can benefit from dedicated time to sort through our experiences with our children, and to offload the burdens of stress.
Use this discussion thread to post the times you are available for a Listening Partnership, and connect with others whose schedule fits yours.
I am very interested in finding a listening partnership! I am just starting to learn these methods, and am so excited to find these resources. The need for a listening partnership is one of the reasons that I chose to buy a membership.
My schedule is flexible, but my ideal availability is generally between 3:00 and 4:30 pm Pacific time on weekdays, or Saturday afternoons.
I just want to bump this and say that I am still in search of a listening partnership. I haven’t gone to the other community sites yet because I really want to see people using this membership site. Kudos to Kristin for recommending it today in the (wonderful!) Q&A call!! 🙂
my cell phone number is 971-300-3137
I am interested in checking out a listening partnership. I have a 2.5 year old son, my husband and I work full time so finding times to talk can be challenging. The best time would probably be at 8 pm spacific time for like a half hour.
I recently received a few text message responses to my post above that included my phone number. I don’t have time at the moment to pursue another listening partnership, but I am super happy to be getting started, and I hope you will find someone to connect with, as well!
Thanks Brooke for your response. I was putting the post out to anyone that might be interested. I will try what worked for you and put my number and see if I get any txt messages.

Hi Good Parents,
It is great that you are reaching out to find Listening Partnerships. As you get started, I highly recommend that you check out the Resource Center on Parenting Support for some great information on how to create a partnership and especially, how to use your partners attention well. https://www.handinhandmembers.org/modules/this-weeks-support-over-the-edge-and-back-again/
I am going to start a new thread and list the guidelines for Listening Partnerships.
As you practice this important parent-to-parent support tool, post any questions you have. I am happy to support you in supporting each other.
Peace & Smiles,

I’m looking for a listening partner.
I have two kids ages 4 and 6.
I’m in the Eastern time zone (same as New York). The ideal time for me is 9:30 pm weekdays or really early (like 5 or 6 am) on the weekends before the chaos sets in 🙂 I can be a bit flexible but I’m afraid if we go much earlier I won’t be able to be totally consistent, and much later and I’ll get tired. But I’m open to variations on that timing.
Are you still needing a LP? If so I am as well and I am on Eastern time. Let me know at 317-410-0319 via text. That is the easiest way to get a hold of me. Thanks much, Jan Funny that our names are so close:)
Hi there! My name is Shauna and I have two boys aged 5 and 7. I have just gotten into the HIH techniques and am really enjoying how they are helping our family. I would love to find a listening partner – it’s one of the main reasons I joined this community. I am based in Montreal, Canada and have a pretty flexible schedule as I work from home. Please text me if you are interested. You can reach me at: 438-491-6470.
Welcome! It’s so great that you’ve joined the Club and that you are looking for a listening partner. This is a great place to post. We’ve also created a Facebook group, just for members of the club. So many parents said they prefer to connect via FB. We’d love to have you in that group, if you use FB. I would just need your FB email (the one associated with your FB account) to invite you to the group. Folks are definitely looking for LPs there.
If there is anything we can do to support you in the Parent’s Club and in your parenting, please let us know!
Peace & Smiles,
Thanks so much, Kathy! Would love to join the FB group. My email linked to the account is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing you a beautiful day! 🙂
Just sent you an invite. Let me know if you don’t get it… See you on the FB page!
