PEP’s certified parent educators are available to speak at PTA meetings, preschool parent nights, business lunches and other gatherings of parents, teachers and others who work with children.
As parents themselves, PEP parent educators share practical skills with warmth, humor and professionalism. They have helped thousands of people understand parenting issues and how to apply concepts and strategies to parenting challenges.
PEP offers two options to serve organizations hosting PEP programs: Introductory Talks and Parenting Solutions packages.
PEP Introductory Talks
PEP’s Introductory Talks provide parents with an overview of PEP’s parenting approach as well as new strategies that parents can try right away with their children.
We are able to offer PEP Introductory Talks to public schools and community-based nonprofits at the discounted fee of $275 (thanks to PEP donors!). The fee for for-profit businesses and large institutions is $750. Hosts may schedule up to 2 of these talks during a school calendar year. This is a great way to introduce PEP to parents at your school or organization and gauge their interest in further parenting programs.
Choose from the 4 topics listed below. These workshops provide an overview of positive parenting techniques and can be adapted to a broad range of ages, from preschoolers to teens.
Move away from punishment and toward using encouragement, consequences, limits and agreements, for an approach to discipline that stimulates cooperation and self-restraint.
Why Don’t My Kids Listen to Me?
Are you tired of saying the same things over and over and not getting results? Do you find yourself giving in to your kids’ demands and/or yelling at them? Get a taste of PEP’s approach to positive discipline, plus specific actions you can take to gain your children’s cooperation without nagging, bribing or yelling.
Power Tools for Power Struggles
Frequent power struggles, whether between adults or between parents and children, impact relationships. Learn what happens when a conflict develops and gain some insights into redirecting that energy in ways that tend to solve problems and bring people closer.
Raising “I Can” Kids
Tired of hearing the words ‘I can’t’? Looking for ways to empower your children with a positive ‘can-do’ attitude? Learn strategies to increase your child’s sense of feeling connected, capable, competent and courageous.
To arrange an Introductory Talk, please contact Alison Collins at Talks@PEPparent.org and send the following:
- the topic of your choice
- your organization and address
- a proposed date and time for your program (and an alternate possible date, if available).
PEP ‘Parenting Solutions’ Packages
For schools, organizations, companies and institutions that want to provide parents with solutions to key challenges that families face today, PEP now offers ‘Parenting Solutions’ Packages.
Our ‘Parenting Solutions’ Packages begin with understanding the fundamental tools of parenting followed by guidance for specific challenges as they arise, such as screen time or stress. It leads to a more effective change in parenting habits and less of a “Band-Aid” approach that may only work for a limited time.
We know that many of the challenges and concerns that lead parents and schools to PEP — taming anxiety and stress, building resilience, fostering cooperation and empathy — become less problematic when parents have the complete toolkit of approaches to foster their child’s independence, resilience, and cooperation.
Our ‘Parenting Solutions’ Packages address the following topics:
- Teens and Anxiety
- Success for Kids in School
- Essentials for Parenting Preschoolers
- Building Resiliency
- Tackling Screen Time
Each ‘Parenting Solutions’ Package includes:
- 2 to 6 in-person sessions of 60 to 90 minutes, each led by a PEP Certified Parent Educator.
- Take-home exercises and articles that allow participants to put the concepts they learned into practice.
- Access to PEP webinars (both recorded and live as appropriate) on the topics in the package for parents to view who were unable to attend the in-person program.
Prices start at $1200 per package. Please contact Colleen Reed at Colleen.Reed@pepparent.org or 301-929-8824 for more information.
