    Description:   What do you do when your child keeps having the same behavior challenge, over and over again, and your regular methods aren't working?

    Join me if you'd like to try something new!

    In this 3-night fun and experiential class based on Jane Nelsen's Positive Discipline and Ross Greene's Collaborative Problem Solving Process, you'll learn the truth about consequences, and how extrinsic behavior motivators like rewards and punishments can end up teaching lessons you didn't intend.

    You'll then learn and practice alternatives, including a remarkably effective method for solving behavior challenges collaboratively with your child.

    The class ends with specific tactics to help your kids build resilience and problem solving skills.

    Past participants say:
    "I had a break-through with not one but two of my kids after the class!"

    "Exceptionally empowering!"
    "This class literally changed my relationship with my child."
    "Some of the best money I've ever spent."


    Cost: $120/person; $100/2nd caregiver; $105/person for groups 4+ (must register together; prior class participants always get the group rate)
