Some people think of the teen years as being like the Terrible Two's, filled with challenge and angst and rebellion! But really, these are exciting times, with amazing opportunities to be fascinated by our kids as we shepherd them toward successful young adulthood.

In these courses, you'll learn about important changes that are going on in kids’ brains throughout the tween/teen years.

You’ll also discover how those changes impact their ability to manage emotions and make good decisions in social situations. 

Best of all, you'll learn how to turn parenting challenges into teachable moments that result in more responsible, respectful, resilient teens!

Come on! Let's get started!

Your facilitator: Eva Dwight, MEd

Certified Positive Discipline Trainer

Do you believe the relationship between you and your kids doesn’t need to be difficult? I believe that parents and kids have an immense capacity for making changes in their lives, when they have the knowledge and tools.

During my 32 years in the field of education, first as a teacher then counselor, I’ve worked with hundreds of parents and kids. I helped them create success with Positive Discipline experiential learning techniques such as active role playing, practicing kind and firm responses, and a power-with versus power-over approach. From that experience, I’ve developed these online courses to equip you with the language and tools to teach your kids to be respectful, responsible and resilient.

Parenting is hard work...often frustrating work...and I want to reassure you: the struggle is real! AND you're NOT ALONE!

In addition to the video lessons and reflections to give you practice with the strategies, at the end of each module, I invite you to email me with questions, concerns, and SUCCESSES! I'm here to provide insight that might be helpful to you when you're struggling, and to celebrate with you when you're feeling proud of your progress!

I'll look forward to joining you on your parenting journey. See you soon!
