Research shows that parenting styles and methods have a permanent effect on your child’s future. Indeed, proper parenting has the potential to increase your child’s happiness, health, and success. Positive Parenting will change how you parent for life, and how your child views and manages the world from now and into adulthood.

Positive Parenting ensures parents are in full control of the household. When implemented properly, Positive Parenting creates an incredibly solid foundation for the entire family. Positive Parenting methods, once set into place can provide an amazing cohesive environment.

Teens need us just as much as toddlers. In fact, teens often have their own versions of temper tantrums or acting out. Like toddlers, teens are in that awkward stage of NEEDING independence (a must) while their life remains controlled by adults. Add peer pressure, social media, pressure to succeed in school and acquire the necessary skills to become an adult, fluctuating hormones, relationships, and so much more!

Testimonials From The Home Front 

What My Kids Have to Say

Yes!  These are my real children.  No, I did not force them, bribe them, pay them, pressure them, or anything along those lines.  I asked my kids if they’d be willing to provide an honest testimonial on how they would describe the success of my parenting skills ~ after I dedicated my efforts to improve my parenting skills, earned my certification, and put my lessons to the test in the real world.

“My friends tell me how lucky am to have a mom who listens and supports me, even when we disagree. I have to admit she’s a great mom. I feel safe coming to her with almost anything.”
