The core classes are the heart of our parenting education program, providing step-by-step teaching of the essential concepts and skills for correcting misbehavior today and guiding your children to become self-disciplined, resilient and successful throughout their lives. Classes for parents of young children, school age children and teens encompass a results-based curriculum in a lively, interactive presentation.
Each core class offers 16 to 20 hours of class time in various formats such as 2 hours per week for 8 to 10 weeks, 4 weekend afternoons or 2 full weekend days. The curriculum includes:
- Multimedia lecture, discussion and experiential learning
- Supportive learning environment with trained leaders and parents who share similar goals and concerns
- Optimal class size (nine to 20) to promote full participation and sharing
- Opportunities for frequent, one-on-one leader feedback via written home “lab” assignments
- The full range of knowledge and practical skills parents need in order to raise children who can thrive in a complex and rapidly changing world.

Being a parent is hard. Our kids are the most important things we have and we want to our best, but we are not perfect. PEP is a great provider of tools that really work.
My house is so much calmer and more enjoyable since I took the PEP Parenting Preschoolers class. I feel like I am giving my daughter life skills in so many areas instead of just getting her to do what I want.
With PEP we've found a key that fits the lock we've been trying to spring for so long.
We've found both PEP I and PEP II to be the best things we have done for our family, far and away better than all the other parenting things we've read or done. It has helped our family become closer.
I feel I function better as a parent when I am taking classes: I'm more reasonable, more forgiving, much better able to look at a longer view. I'm so very grateful for your program.
I am so grateful to PEP as being a single parent is hard, so having more cooperative children really helps when there is just me to deal with all the issues. So once again I thank my instructor and PEP.
As a final evaluation of the class, I found it extremely useful. It has given me a number of wonderful insights and better methods on becoming a more encouraging parent.
The philosophy, techniques and skills had a profound impact on our day-to-day parenting. We finally had a road map. Attending the classes is an investment of time and money that has truly paid off big time.
I've taken three PEP classes so far. My relationship with my children has never been better and the classes even helped improve my relationship with my husband.
The leader was awesome. She really has the skills and competencies as well as proven know-how to provide us not only with an interesting theory but also to support it with real life examples and how-to-do ideas.
