Guiding Principles for Highly Successful Parenting

Learn strategies to be a more calm and effective parent and to help your children be successful, not just now, but later in life.

Are you finding parenting to be stressful? Tired of yelling, repeating rules and feeling like your children aren’t listening? Learn strategies to be a more calm and effective parent and to help your children be successful, not just now, but later in life.

This five session series authored by Dr. Bob Sornson, focuses on key parenting strategies such as: creating family routines, developing emotional control in children, becoming calm and assertive parents, establishing consistent rules and relationships, helping children learn from their mistakes and developing empathy. 

A parent who attended a Guiding Principles series in Flint shared the following, "My daughter was just unruly and wouldn't listen to me, follow directions or even follow many rules within my household. Guiding Principles helped me develop small consistent routines that gave me ways to listen to her, give her some independence and feel a relationship with her again. Getting new routines down, and talking with a softer voice, has given us all a chance to be a close family. My daughter now regularly tells me that she loves me."

Support for Guiding Principles workshops in Flint, Michigan is funded by a grant from the USDA/NIFA Children, Youth and Families at Risk program under award No.
