Parents will learn proven skills, such as how to set limits while maintaining goodwill, cope with their child’s negative feelings, express anger without hurting, engage their child’s willing cooperation, and help their child become caring and responsible. Parents will also learn how to resolve conflicts peacefully and create a family atmosphere of love and respect.

“Parents are on the firing line seven days a week. Yet few of them have had any training for this demanding job. No wonder even the most well-intentioned parents often find themselves feeling frustrated, bewildered, guilty or alone,” said Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish, award-winning authors of the book and the program. “The How to Talk So Kids Will Listen workshop gives parents a chance to learn practical new skills and exchange ideas and experiences with each other,” notes Samantha Wendling, ABA.

Hundreds of thousands of parents and professionals have benefited from The How to Talk So Kids Will Listen workshop. In studies, one in Wisconsin, and the other in Colorado and North Dakota, researchers found that attending parents developed skills that significantly – and lastingly – improved the quality of their family life. They also found that these new-found skills worked equally well with children of all ages.
