Do you struggle to get your child to do the things you want them to do? Do you feel like a broken record asking your child to do the same things over and over? If you find yourself feeling frustrated and confused as to why your son or daughter behaves a certain way and are not sure how to handle it, then Parenting without Stress: Behavioral Strategies That Work is for you!


This training will provide simple tools you can immediately use that can increase your child’s compliance and decrease your child’s problem behaviors in the home.
