What parents are saying:

"This type of knowledge should be 'required' to be a parent.... ♥ Thanks!"      Christine

"The parenting advice and tools I learned were ones that I could really use at home.  They have helped me become a better parent."                        Jami Altizer

"Thank you so much for sharing your parenting wisdom with us. Learning the Parent Talk skills has changed our lives and helped us realize the power of the words we choose and the actions we take when it comes to raising our children. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."                              Amy and Darren 

"Great course! Thank you."     Dan

"I was surprised and pleased at how the material was so helpful and applicable with my 16 year old! Proof that it’s never too late to learn effective “Parent Talk”. Thanks!                               Jennifer

"Our parenting and communication skills with our children have changed mostly in the way we articulate our requests. Our overall communication with our children has improved.  We have almost completely stopped yelling and the stress level in the house has been downgraded."                        Brian and Kristina Hays

"It takes wisdom to have a good family, and understanding to make it strong."        

                          Proverbs 24:3

In-service Teacher Talk training for Early Education teachers and staff. 

Healthy family communication is at the heart of how parents connect with their children and how children are empowered to learn from and be guided by their parents.

It's all about choices...theirs, and ours!
