Course Summary 
Are you tired of yelling, nagging, bribing and threatening your child? Do you want more cooperation, fun, and effective communication going on in your household?  Our school has several certified instructors of the transformational parent course Redirecting Children’s Behavior which was developed by Kathryn Kvols, the founder of the International Network for Children and Families and author of Redirecting Children’s Behavior.  Become a more calm, confident parent!

Our course not only stops misbehavior, but in addition we will teach you how to give your children essential life skills that your child will use as an adult.
