Course Description

What age should children 'listen' to their caregivers? Is it possible to get teens talking? Can a preschooler do chores? Parenting is a job that requires ongoing professional development on children's capabilities and the latest neural-biological research to understand why and when children do what they do.

Parent Effectiveness Training (PET), is an evidence-based parent program presented within the framework of brain development information to enable parents of ages 2 - 25, to learn skills to enhance their parent-child relationship. Upon completion of the course, ongoing online parenting coaching is available.
