Parenting in Pandemic:
Infant & Toddler Development Meets Social Justice Parenting

Whether you’ve got your parenting strategies locked down for the next 3 weeks from checking Pinterest everyday to find something to entertain your baby,

Or you’ve locked yourself in a bathroom just to cry while eating lunch…

There’s no doubt you love your child and you’re doing enough for them even though it feels like the opposite most days.

Let me say it one more time for people in the back: “You’re doing okay and your baby is okay even though you don’t feel okay.”

Now let me back that statement up with this FREE virtual/Zoom workshop on Thursday, September 23rd 6:30-7:30 pm CST.

A replay is provided and available for 72 hours if you can’t make it live.  

Hold the pacifier, Nat. I'm in!

MEET Nat Vikitsreth, DT, Ed.M., LSW, CEIM

Licensed & Decolonized Psychotherapist &
Child Development Specialist

Nat founded Come Back to Care to support caregivers of young children who want to build families at the intersection of social justice practice and intergenerational family wellness. Nat collaborates with her families so that they can be all of who they are by unsubscribing from oppressive norms and unlearning their intergenerational family patterns. She does that with a wholehearted compassion, a whole lot of curiosity, and a wholesome liberation practice.



No matter which parenting camp you’re in- attachment, brain-based, respectful, conscious, helicopter (hey, no shame), or winging-it- you’ll learn:


Three child development essentials (the 3 R’s: reciprocity, regulation, and reconnection) that infants and toddlers need for wholesome and resilient growth and development.


Concrete ways to apply the 3 R’s into your daily parenting whether it’s during diaper changes, mealtimes, sleep training, screen time, and meltdowns.


A clear framework called In-Out-N-Through for using self-reflection (In), storytelling (Out), and body-based practices (Through) to transform from Autopilot to Bold, Conscious, and Decolonized (ABCD) parenting.


Intentional ways to practice and model social justice (specifically transformative justice) when you apply the 3 R’s.    

Yes, you can practice both intentional parenting and social justice in your home while promoting your child’s development…most of the time (because life is real, and perfection isn’t).

If you’re curious about child development science and equity and social justice, I’d love to be in practice and build a community with you.

Come as you are and come curious.

Intentional & Decolonized Parenting... Let's do this!

What other families say...

I feel like I am becoming more aware of how I parent and respond to my child. Each week’s body-based exercises helped to slow down automatic responses and therefore helped me to respond in more intentional ways to my family and my child. I have more empathy towards myself, my husband, and our toddler, and I learn to ask for what we need. I also liked the group discussions and how Nat facilitated them the most. The program was reflective, hopeful, and non-judgmental.

“With Nat by my side I was able to step back, dissect each root of the problem and manage them one by one until it came together as a whole. Learning various techniques with Nat allowed me to be more comfortable as a parent. I really enjoyed the constant positive energy which was helpful for both Ashton and me.”

— Josie Williams

"My concern was being judged as a bad parent. I never felt this way with Nat. It is very hard to find someone like Nat who is as kind, compassionate, understanding, and fun who is willing to work with difficult cases. We are extremely grateful that Nat was part of our journey into our child's autism and allowing our family to reach our full potential.  Nat was a great listener and I think we as a family grew tremendously because of her."

— Dr. Kathya Chartre (Valdez)

Nat has a wonderful, calming presence. She made me feel very welcome in the space and more capable that I thought I was. I learn from the course that these conversations are not actually as challenging as I imagined they would be. That there are developmentally appropriate ways to talk with even very young children about race and racism. That I will not traumatize children by talking with them about racism. Nat really removed that element of fear for me. The course is so supportive for people coming from any background and starting point, and Nat does a nice job of explaining how to use the tools no matter where you are on your anti-bias journey. The tools are straight-forward, flexible, and very user-friendly. I appreciated the mix of medias as well, with videos, transcripts, printables, and links to online resources all being utilized well. I would highly recommend this workshop for anyone who has young children or works with them!
