The world has changed over the last 50 years, our models don’t work anymore
Changing technology, less shared values and time to think and talk about them with our families, and a greater emphasis on achievement and less on the quality of character has put our children in a world where cheating, nudity, promiscuity, and violence are more prevalent and acceptable than ever. Positive, respectful parenting is essential to raising children that will thrive.
Get new ideas
Linda Jessup, the founder of PEP, states that parents with frustration and very high stress are frequently, simply “out of ideas”. They are bankrupt. Coming to classes with other parents inspires and offers new perspectives and strategies that work.
Connect to other parents who are facing similar challenges
Parents experience validation that they are not alone in their quest to be the best parents they can be and find support and valuable information.
Classes allow for time to bring your specific scenarios in to ask what could be done differently.
Try new strategies
Behavior change doesn’t happen in an hour or two. It takes practice, feedback and continuous improvement. Experiential learning gives parents a chance to try a new strategy in the classroom, then go home and try it, and come back and report on how it went and what can be tweaked to improve. Classes with more than one session give continuity and a chance to improve over time.
Changes that last
Behavior change that occurs with small consistent shifts creates newer more effective habits that are more likely to last.
