Parenting does not have to be complicated. It does, however, have to be consistent. Children are brilliant in their perception of inconsistency, "But Daddy said I could." and they will point out every inconsistent thought we present to them. This series is based on sound psychology presented in an easy to understand manner and featuring easy to use methods.  This program will help you create a positive change in your parenting style.  The material for this series is based on two of the most effective parenting models available today. The goal of this series is to create parenting experts out of each parent who attends these discussions.

See what others say about the class:

After one hour, just one class, I changed a few things and began to see an immediate improvement.  I addressed my son respectfully and he in turn responded differently.  He did what I wanted him to do.  What I have been nagging him to do for months.  I could not believe how easy it was to change the way things were going.  --Shirley S. 

Dr. Dobo is a life saver.  I was doing somethings wrong, things that would have had long term devasting effects for my kids.  I'm so grateful I stopped rescuing my kids.  They have become more independent because I started letting them handle their lives more and more.  They solve problems on their own.  It change my entire view on parenting.--Tom V.

My house is calm.  It use to be loud and crazy but now its calm and respectful.  I never would have believed it.  --Maggie L.

One thing I remember Dr. Dobo did with our group was to develop a parental mission statement.  I never thought about parenting as a mission. That group exercise stayed with me.  I would include our groups mission statement here, but then I'd ruin it for the next group. --Nikki C. - (772) 589-7680
