There is no more important work than the work we do within the walls of our own home.
And yet, as I trained teachers and childcare professionals to do their work, I was met one day with a question that stopped me in my tracks. "What about us?" two parents asked. "Where do we get OUR training?"
As a professional, I've received and presented hundreds and hundreds of hours of training, to ensure that I, and those I work with, have the skills to be effective in the classroom.
But what about in the home?
Where do parents get their training?
Have they been left to figure it out on their own?
When I was asked this by a child's parents, I honestly didn't have a good answer. These parents wanted desperately to help their son. I had been brought in to support his teachers.
But what about them?
Then, I realized that as a parent, I was using the same principles, tools, and philosophies that I had spent years learning as an early childhood educator to guide my own children in my home.
That lightbulb moment is when I started creating resources for parents.
It made sense to me that if professionals working with children had regular training on the principles and practices of positive child guidance -- information that made their work easier and more effective -- parents should too.
After writing the ebook Parenting with Positive Guidance: Building Discipline from the Inside Out, I found that many people were wanting more. I spent months taking that first project, adding new information and insights and packaging it all together into a class experience that could be accessed by parents all over the world.
There's nothing magical about this course.
There are no gimmicks or short-term ploys. Just solid information and respected techniques. It's grounded in research and best-practice that will allow you to build stronger relationships within your family while also building more internal discipline in your child.
You'll learn about philosophy, practices, and tools that you can implement in your home immediately, and you'll see the results for years to come.
This course has helped parents trade meltdowns for problem solving, trade sleepless nights for restful routines, and trade feelings of crushing failure for clear confidence.
There are a lot of perspectives out there. Lots of opinions about parenting. But when we quiet the crowd and focus on what we know about the way children develop and learn, we begin to see the simple core principles that guide us as we parent with more clarity and confidence.....Quiet the crowd. Clarify your core principles.
Learn to parent confidently, authentically, and positively.
