Previously hosted live class. Access the recording and handouts by clicking on the Course Lesson below.
Parent stress has dramatically increased since the start of the pandemic, but children’s essential needs haven’t really changed.
Parents are less stressed when they recognize myths that may cause family conflict and understand what’s most important to help raise thriving, cooperative children. And, good news, kids are more cooperative when they feel positively connected with their parents.
This live online class will help you understand and apply:
- Communication skills that build strong parent-child connections
- Parent behaviors that help kids cope with stress and develop self-control
- Effective discipline approaches that reduce misbehavior and increase cooperation.
You will have a chance to ask questions and get expert solutions on the spot. You will also receive helpful cheat sheets to guide you when trying new approaches.

Parenting is a demanding job that takes lots of physical and emotional energy. If you are stressed or exhausted it is difficult to be the parent that you want to be – regardless of how much parenting education you seek! Well-being includes your emotional, social, mental and physical health. It depends on feeling like you can cope with daily stressors, having a sense of purpose and generally enjoying life. Parents with a strong sense of wellbeing can manage difficult emotions, make time for supportive relationships and for doing things they enjoy. The purpose of this library is to help you achieve wellbeing by reflecting on your own needs and considering how your personal history may be affecting your parent-child relationships. This series will help you:
- Recognize symptoms of distress that you may be ignoring and would benefit from attention
- Consider beliefs and ideas that may be getting in the way of wellbeing and positive parenting
- Address specific challenges such as getting on the same page with your co-parent and handling stepparenting relationships
