Positive Parenting Boston workshops are presented by Cynthia Kriegman, whose prior work as a bilingual elementary teacher has led her to her current roles as parent and teacher trainer, as well as mediator and mediation training coach. Cynthia was recently featured on NECN TV giving parenting tips for life during Covid-19 quarantine. Cynthia holds a Master of Ed. from Bank Street College of Education, where her research focused on collaboration, community building, & conflict resolution in the classroom. Her mediation training and interning were completed at Metropolitan Mediation Services (MMS), in Brookline, MA. Whether mediating in private or organizational settings, working with children, parents and teachers, or being with family, Cynthia's passion is to help people communicate in ways that help individuals’ needs be met while also helping relationships to flourish. Cynthia lives in Jamaica Plain with her husband and three sons.
