Short Business Description: Do you argue and conflict more than you’d like with your strong willed child? Join our community for learning and support for parents with strong willed children. We all have one and know it’s not easy; we don’t have to do it alone!
Long Business Description:

We created 5 Steps To Connect to bring together parents of strong willed children to learn how to transform intense, hard interactions into chances to grow and connect so we can feel more peace and joy in our families.

We understand you, why it’s hard, what you need.

All of us have a strong willed child so we get walking on eggshells to avoid reactions, rigid No! and intense energy.

Our dream is for all parents with a strong willed child to relate with more ease. After I used the 5 Steps to Connect framework, I was less reactive so my daughter could trust me to hear and accept her, and her reactivity decreased as well.

Exploring these skills together allows us to take things less personally, set boundaries more clearly, and not direct our reactivity AT the people we love.

When we come together and share our lived experience, shame loses its power and we feel enough, worthy. The results when I parent from here are miraculous.

I invite all to try this community and explore the fun learning with others who are walking the same challenging path. You won’t regret it!

Long Business Description:

Adventure Sports Unlimited (ASU) is an aquatics center that teaches people the fun to play in water. We bring people together, teach them to the best of their abilities, outfit them with gear to fit their potential, arrange adventures to use their new skills, and eat well. It seems only appropriate that when you have a bunch of adventure enthusiasts together at an exotic aquatic environment, after a day of SCUBA diving, that a bit of seafood foraging will result in a wonderful gourmet meal to toast the day.

The essence of our plot is unrelenting fun and through this joy we will impart superior skills and safety. The ASU facility has a tropically heated training pool with hot tub, retail shop to serve your swimming and dive needs, classroom, and loaded it with water toys for people to play with. For 38 years,we have been successfully teaching the joys of being in water through the recreational sport of SCUBA for all ages and Adventure Sports Swim School.  Additionally we offer outstanding travel adventures. Find your next adventure through Adventure Sports Unlimited. Family Offerings  Seafood Foraging  &  Kelp Pickling
