Calmer, Easier, Happier Parenting will give you 5 simple and practical strategies you can immediately use to help your children start doing what you ask them to do – the first time you ask.
What a concept! This is absolutely achievable when you start using these positive, respectful and powerful strategies. And here’s even better news. With these techniques, your kids will become not only more cooperative, but also more confident, self-reliant, motivated and considerate. Join me for this course and you’ll have the skills you need to develop these important qualities in your children.
Between each session, you’ll have a week to practice the skill you learned in the class along with “parenting homework”. At the beginning of the next class, we’ll talk about what is working and troubleshoot any behavior challenges you may be experiencing before moving on to the next Calmer, Easier, Happier Parenting skill.
