NVC & Scott Baio

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a32uxz_syhU]

NonViolent communication (NVC) hits national television on the popular reality show “Scott Baio is 46 and Pregnant”. Beginning this Sunday, January 13, 2008, tune in Sunday evenings at 10pm to VH1 to see Bill Stierle (www.billstierle.com) on the popular TV series.Or for a sneak preview you can see the entire first episode here: http://www.vh1.com/video/play.jhtml?id=1579017&vid=201725

Bill has been working NVC into his work with parenting, business and life skills coaching for the past six years using the puppets to the delight of many. After 17 years in this field, Bill has made the “Big Time”, as they say, bringing, of course, Giraffe and Jackal along with him. Tune in for the next eight episodes as Bill works his Giraffe Magic. Tell your friends as they say, this should be good.

“Are you feeling sad and scared and needing a little comfort?” Bill is heard saying to seven month old Charlotte who has come on the show to help with the “Daddies To Be” class.

Scott soon realizes something about the importance of self empathy…”As much as I wanted I just couldn’t provide Charlotte with the comfort and safety she needed…probably because I was waiting for someone to provide me with the comfort and safety I needed.”

Later in the show, Scott is relating this experience to his “wife to be” and refers to Bill as the “baby whisperer”. “If I could do what this guy does…life would be so easy”.

Thank you Bill for sharing this magic with the world. Georaffe
