This enrichment course for parents with school-age children provides practical tools and techniques that help adults achieve respectful, healthy relationships with their children and help them prepare their kids for the real world.

We will cover putting an end to arguing, teaching responsibility without losing love, setting limits without waging war, avoiding power-struggles, guiding kids to own and solve their problems and teaching kids to complete chores without reminders or pay! Through laughs and thought-provoking discussions, this class will help parents build healthy, nurturing relationships with their kids that will last a lifetime!
