The Parent Talk System is a style of communicating with children that creates emotionally healthy family relationships. It is a skill-based program that teaches parents a series of verbal skills and language patterns to help them achieve their desired objective of raising responsible, respectful children while reducing stress, strain, and family conflict.

There is an undeniable link between the words parents speak and the attitudes and outcomes that children create in their lives. Your choice of words, and your communication style, are critical to the self-esteem, emotional health, and personal empowerment of your children. By intentionally selecting words and language patterns that build autonomy and responsibility, you can empower your children and enhance their effectiveness as capable, caring human beings.

​Parenting can be one of the most rewarding, joyful, and at the very same time, the most challenging and frustrating experiences of our lives. It is probably the most important job we will ever hold and yet one for which we have very little training. If you are feeling that you could use a boost in your parenting skills and want to discover more respectful ways to guide and teach your children, Practical Parent Talk is here to help!

Through your involvement with Practical Parent Talk, whether you attend an adult only group class, a combination preschool and parent class, a staff development workshop or private in-home or video conference classes you will:

  • Learn how to speak in words that nurture, uplift              and inspire.

  • Learn how to hold children accountable for their actions without attacking their spirit or personality.

  • Learn how to set appropriate limits and make 'controlled choice' work for you.

  • Learn to praise in ways that truly help children develop a strong internal sense of self-esteem.

  • Learn language that promotes independence while reducing 'learned helplessness'.


  • Add to your tool box of parenting skills so that you and your child can become  response-able. 


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