What will I learn in this parenting class?
You love your children. You work hard to provide them healthy food and a happy home. You try to teach them right from wrong. You know you need to set limits on inappropriate behavior.
You have all the right ingredients and yet sometimes your interactions with your kids don’t live up to your expectations. There’s too much yelling and stress – not enough fun and enjoyment. When you’re in the middle of it all, it’s hard to figure out what needs to change so there’s less conflict and more cooperation.
This class will help you fine tune your approach to bring out the best in your kids. You'll find answers to questions like:
- “How should I respond when my child is disrespectful?”
- "My children rarely get their chores done without being nagged. What can I do?"
- “How can I discipline without yelling?”
- “What should I do when my children are fighting with each other?”
- "Homework is such a battle with my kids. What should I do?"
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.
What You'll Receive:
- 11 self-paced parenting lessons
- 3 months unlimited access (you can request more time if needed)
- Permission to share course with spouse or partner
- Invitation to attend optional monthly group coaching session for 3 months via Zoom with parenting expert, Kathy Slattengren, M.Ed.
