Parenting School Age Children

PEP teaches practical, proven methods for correcting problem behaviors and creating a plan to guide your children toward long-term responsibility, self-sufficiency and resilience. These methods will enable you to transform your family relationships from conflict-ridden and chaotic to cooperative and happy.

Do you struggle to get your kids out the door in the morning, then struggle to get them through their homework and into bed at night? Does it seem like everything is a battle of wills? Are you constantly refereeing sibling fights? Still dealing with tantrums?

Learn the science and art of positive parenting in classes ranging from the comprehensive, multi-week PEP I: Parenting 5 to 12 Years Olds and the advanced-level PEP II: Next Steps for Parenting 5 to 12 Year Olds to single-session, topical workshops on specific problems, including these:

  • Power tools for power struggles
  • Stopping whining and backtalk
  • Consequences—effective discipline without punishment
  • When parents disagree about parenting issues
  • Extra-challenging children
  • Chores, responsibilities and allowances
  • Parenting in the digital age
  • Sibling conflict
  • Motivating your kids to succeed
