Where have these golden nuggets of research-based parenting ideas come from?
The parenting ideas which form the foundation of our approach are from people like …
- Dr. Alfred Adler (Psychotherapist and founder of the school of individual psychology in the early 1900’s, established importance of people having a sense of belonging and meaning in their lives)
- Dr. Becky Bailey (Founder of Conscious Discipline)
- Dr. Mike Bradley (Psychologist and author specializing in treating teens who are acting out)
- Dr. Brené Brown (Researcher on shame and vulnerability)
- Dr. Hilaire Cash (Researcher on internet, video game addiction)
- Dr. John Gottman (Founder of The Gottman Relationship Institute)
- Dr. Ross Greene (Psychiatrist and developer of the Collaborative Problem Solving as an effective process for working with children who have challenging behavior)
- Dr. Alan Kazdin (Professor of Psychology and Child Psychiatry at Yale University and director of the Yale Parenting Center and Child Conduct Clinic)
- Dr. John Medina (Brain researcher and author of Brain Rules for Babies)
- Dr. Jane Nelsen (Founder of Positive Discipline)
- Dr. Bruce Perry (Psychiatrist and researcher on children effected by trauma)
- Dr. William Sears, Barbara Nicholson, Lysa Parker (Attachment Parenting)
- Dr. Dan Siegel (Psychiatrist and Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute)
- Dr. Anthony E. Wolf (Child psychologist and author)
Often these parenting experts are saying similar things in different ways. We pull all the critical ideas together in a way that makes sense.
The concepts you’ll learn have also been used by Priceless Parenting founder, Kathy Slattengren, and her husband in raising their own two children. Slattengren’s Masters of Education Degree in Curriculum and Instruction has helped her synthesize the key parenting concepts in ways that are easy to quickly grasp. You will hear stories from real families that bring the research concepts to life.
When you learn how to respond to your children’s challenging behavior, parenting is so much easier. These are ideas too important not to share. Parents from across the United States to England, Thailand and Australia are reporting great results from using these ideas with their own kids.
