Wondering how the on-line class works?  FAQ’s are below.

How will the interactive, on-line class work?

We will be using Zoom video conferencing which is exceptionally easy to use.  You will be given a URL link upon registration which will take you to the virtual classroom at the time of the event.  You will see the facilitator on video and will be able to see her computer screen, too.  You will have the option of being seen as a participant, or not.

What are the system requirements?

Just about anything MOST people will be using, will work.  Chromebooks will NOT be able to work with Zoom, I’m sorry!  As long as the computer or smart phone was purchased within the last 15 years (some even longer) you will have no issue.  You may also dial in using your phone, with or without camera.  For more specific system requirements follow this link.

Can I participate using a mobile device?

Yes.  You can use your smart phone with or without video.  You can also just dial in with a regular phone for audio only (although I recommend having the ability to see the video, as well as hear the audio.)

Does my computer or phone need a camera to participate?

No.  While I hope that most people will participate choose to be seen (because it’s more like a real meeting room that way), you do not need to have a camera and even if you do, you can choose not to use it.

I live outside the United States.  Can I participate?

Yes, Zoom works globally. You can start or join a meeting from any international location using PC & Mac , Android & iOS , H.323/SIP devices or telephone dial-in.

What People Have To Say About Marcilie’s Classes

“I am thrilled to have found Marcilie and her amazing positive discipline class!  My husband and I feel so blessed to have three beautiful children who are less than 4 years apart and while it’s so much fun, it’s also far more challenging than we ever expected.  Before Marcilie’s class, I would wake up each morning with the best intention of being a kind, patient, and understanding mom.  By 5pm each evening, I was over it all. Over the whining, the boundary testing, the stubbornness, I was done.  

I have Marcilie to thank for reviving my patience with my children.  Her class reminded me that my children are trying to do the right thing and at times variables get in the way. It’s brilliant-she helped me lead with empathy and curiosity, instead of accusations and assumptions.  She also taught me that “teachable moments” come when everyone is calm and open to discussion.  This was a huge eye opener for me, I am not going to effectively teach and help my children when they are emotionally off balance.  My oldest son had a tantrum the other night and in the past I would have lectured him and kept at him until one of us broke.  I tried one of Marcilie’s tools, instead of lecturing I sat on the floor and quietly asked him if he would like to be held.  It was amazing, he was still crying but came over and sat on my lap.  I rocked him until he calmed down, which was a minute later at the most.  After he calmed down we were able to quietly talk and it made all the difference in the world.

I would recommend this class to anyone and everyone-parents and child educators alike.  I feel so incredibly thankful that I found Marcilie and although my husband and I are far from “perfect” parents, we feel so much better equipped to handle the challenges and emotions of our wonderful children.”
