Take the Stress Out of Parenting
There is no harder job in the world than being a good parent. Today, more so than ever before, you have cultural influences that have a substantial impact on how your child thinks and behaves. This course helps you develop new skills and understanding that can decrease conflict at home and school, increase effective problem-solving skills and enhance your child's self esteem. When you accomplish that, you'll find your worries will diminish substantially and your time with your children will become more playful and fun. Whether you're a new parent or the parent of teens, you'll find answers to what can seem like overwhelming problems as you progress through this online course. Written by Brenda Crawford-Clark, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, this Improving Your Parenting Skills course provides therapist-tested solutions that make both parents and children feel like winners.

Description of Classes You'll Receive

Solution-Oriented Family Problem Solving
This class will help the entire family identify healthy, effective ways to communicate their needs and express their feelings. You'll learn to throw out communication patterns that reinforce problems instead of solving them. Everyone will benefit from discarding ways of thinking that are discouraging and replacing them with encouraging words and actions that will shape how you feel and what you do to solve problems.

Family-Tested Ways to Avoid Control Battles

If your family spends more time in conflict than enjoying each other, you'll want to share this class with everyone. Control comes in all shapes and sizes and when misused, can leave you feeling resentful, trapped and angry. It can also result in temper tantrums and acting out behaviors. The perception of having no control can contribute to the development of eating disorders. This class will give you tools to develop a strategic problem solving plan that allows you to set healthy limits as a parent, yet develop a system where a child is given more opportunities to gain control in his or her life as the child gets older and is able to demonstrate increased abilities to handle responsibilities.

Decrease Your Stress and Increase Your Child's Sense of Responsibility by
Using Natural Consequences
When Your Child Makes Mistakes or Misbehaves
Have you ever noticed your child continues to do something that you don't want him to do? This class provides must-know techniques to turn the responsibility for a child's behavior over to the child, as it is age appropriate. It also takes out the anger from discipline and results in long-term changes. When you complete this class, you and your child will have laid the groundwork for less stress and more responsible behavior.

If You Want Kids to Listen
This class will help you master the art of communicating with your child, even if he's a Teen Type Person! The author shares with you years of experience in helping parents and teens enhance their relationship during a time when it has become socially acceptable to be distant from your parents and not communicate. You'll want to pay careful attention to this class, because it will help you move to a different level of parenting.

Secrets to Successfully Stopping Temper Tantrums, from 2 to 24
No one likes the aftereffects of a temper tantrum, not the parent or the child. Learn from young experts what propels them into that behavior, how they feel and their purpose. Then, with tips from a family therapist you'll be able to tackle that major family disruption, confident that you're not only obtaining more family peace, but also addressing the often hidden needs of the out of control child.

If You Don't Want to be Asked to Solve Your Kids Problems When They're 40, Get Rid of Parent Guilt Today! Set Boundaries and Increase Respect With These Tactics.

Why Do Kids Smart Back?
Discover essential elements that help you and your child identify what purpose misbehaviors are serving, and how to replace the misbehavior with more effective ways to meet your needs. This class will not only decrease your struggles, but help you break through walls to get closer to a child whose misbehavior has become the focus of your relationship.

Protecting Your Child From Our Culture
You won't always be with your child, but there are ways to build a safer emotional and physical environment that will help your child fight battles of peer pressure, school, drinking and drug use and sexual pressures. You'll learn to identify danger signs related to outside influences. You'll also get formulas to help your child internalize these safeguards and practice vignettes to reinforce what you've learned.

Throw Out Bad Grades and Homework Struggles!
You and your child will want to work together on this class to bounce back from negative school experiences. You'll both learn how to stop fighting over homework; how to teach your child the best approaches to get help from caring teachers and how to handle personality conflicts with teachers; ways your child can decrease homework and classroom stress and more. The techniques learned in this session will help your child face head-on other difficult learning experiences in life.

Parents Being Parents
Sometimes your children can be very convincing when they want you to okay something, or buy them something. Their job description includes manipulation and maneuvering to get their way. However much you'd like to make them happy, setting reasonable boundaries may be just what they are really asking for when they're testing the limits. Learn how to identify and decrease your children's manipulations, and increase their acceptance of reasonable limits during this strategy-filled class.
