Do your teens ever push your buttons?

Do you love your teens yet sometimes find their behavior irritating or inappropriate? Do they push your buttons by ...

  • not doing homework
  • fighting with siblings
  • not listening
  • being disrespectful
  • arguing
  • breaking curfew
  • talking back
  • being uncooperative
  • directly disobeying
  • leaving messes around the house
  • procrastinating
If so, this parenting class is for you! You'll learn to think on your feet when the struggles happen and not just react. You will discover how to replace yelling with calmly setting firm limits.


What will I learn in this parenting class?

Priceless Parenting classes are grounded on decades of positive parenting experiences from real life situations and backed by the latest scientific research in child development. Find answers to questions like:

  • “How should I respond when my teen is disrespectful?”

  • "My teens rarely get their chores done without being nagged. What can I do?"

  • “How can I get my teens to make better decisions?”

  • “How can I discipline without yelling?”

  • "Homework is such a battle with my kids. What should I do?"

  • "What limits should I be setting around my son's video game playing?"
You'll hear real life parenting problems and learn ways to solve those problems. Since one approach won't work for every child, you'll learn multiple ways to handle situations.

Feedback From Parents Who Have Taken This Class

5 gold stars "Priceless Parenting was heaven sent for me. I should have taken this parenting class a long time ago. I focused on the class for teens and I should have taken the class when my daughter was maybe 12, right before the teen years. I took the class when she was 15. I would have prevented mistakes I made and I would have been better prepared for the teen stage and known what to look for in my daughter, and how to handle the teen years. It was a great course and I feel like I can start over now, with a different outlook on my experience with my teenage daughter. I still have another 3 years. I love how it's online and I can do the lessons at my own pace. I'm happy to have found Priceless Parenting!" - Kimberly King, Los Angeles, CA
