  • EFFECTIVE PARENTING: Parenting Courses

    Learn why the controlling form of discipline, that uses rewards and punishments, cultivates resentment, retaliation and rebellion (the 3Rs) in kids. Seventy-five percent of disruptions in the family are a result of the 3Rs, so by eliminating the 3Rs you’re eliminating three out of four of your problems! Using a Guidance Approach to Parenting will eliminate the 3Rs. It is a compassionate, fair and effective way of teaching parents and kids of all ages to communicate with one another without using rewards and punishments.
