Join Annie Keeling and other parents for a 4-hour parent training. Together, you'll explore the pitfalls and traps that drive parents when trying to get their child to change behaviors. You'll learn tools that really work and take away a blueprint to make parenting easier and your family connections stronger.
Gain a new view of your children and their behavior to understand what's really going on and how to most respectfully help them learn and grow.
Define parents' natural responsibility and how it fits into family-centered homes.
Build connection instead of chaos, increase cooperation, and help your child learn with creativity, surprises, and a sense that you - the parent - have got this!
Instead of using threats, coercion, yelling, or punishment, this workshop provides a chance to learn another way.

"It's such a better feeling to know that our child is learning rather than feeling ashamed of his behavior. Our son is so sentsitive, this is a really important improvement for us. This information goes deeper than parenting. It's a blueprint for being a more respectful person. It's truly lifechanging."
