Class Description:

Are you tired of nagging, yelling, and feeling entirely helpless when it comes to parenting your child? Have you found yourself so frustrated that instead of parenting with control, you sometimes feel like you're the child and that they've somehow won?

Sure, parenting can be hard. But it should also be joyful! It shouldn't be a constant painful struggle.

Our Practical Positive Parenting approach is based on 2 experts in the parenting field, as well as our 50+ combined years of parenting education. First, the work of Alfred Adler, a world renowned psychologist and researcher who developed evidence-based systematic approaches to raising responsible, cooperative children. Many authors and programs have taken the principles presented by Alfred Adler, including the program second program in which has helped us develop our class- Positive Discipline, by Jane Nelsen, Ed.D. Her books have remained one of the foremost authorities on parenting since the early 80’s. Her program helps children develop self- discipline, responsibility, cooperation, and problem solving skills. 

All instructors have completed the Positive Discipline training program for instructors and have been trained in the Parenting Resources program, to be able to bring practical, common-sense strategies back to their children and families
