Once upon a time when I was a young mom and an elementary school teacher I felt pretty satisfied with my abilities and accomplishments. I was doing it all well. I was doing my best. But I was wrong. It was when I took a course to help students become more responsible that I realized how easy it was make things better. I was taught specific strategies that impacted the quality of my life in a huge way. I realized the importance of parent education and it was then that I started on this journey to make parent education more commonplace. In my experience, both personal and professional, moms and dads who are aware of parenting strategies enjoy more peaceful parenting and most importantly, raise children that are better adjusted, resilient and independent.
I recently became certified to teach a parenting program called SYSTEMATIC TRAINING FOR EFFECTIVE PARENTING or STEP. It is well respected and evidence based. The training I received reminded me of several strategies that I knew, but had forgotten. I have since employed some of those strategies with my current students and was very pleased with the results. Children became more cooperative and worked with greater motivation. It’s just a reminder that we all need refreshers. Elevating our parenting skills needs to be a high priority. I know you agree. STEP has renewed my passion to educate parents and I am thrilled to share this knowledge with you.
I will be hosting workshops on an ongoing basis. Exact dates and times will soon be announced and will be flexible to accommodate busy schedules.
Beginning workshops will meet in my living room so it will be an intimate setting. The cost is $250 for the entire 7 week program with a 30% discount for your parenting partner. The only additional cost is the parent handbook which can be purchased on Amazon or directly from STEP publishers http://www.steppublishers.com/.
Please let me know if you are interested in attending. We will then set a time that works for everyone. I promise you a most valuable experience.
