Power of Positive Parenting (PPP)

Parenting is demanding yet rewarding. Many people prepare and study for years to enter a chosen profession, but for parenting it is usually on-the-job training. At Elpizo, we believe that parents are doing the best that they can with the knowledge and tools that they have, but sometimes parents get frustrated, stressed out with the complexities of daily life, feel out of control with their children, and feel that they are alone in this profession. Do not lose hope! Help is at hand with a supportive network of likeminded parents and a parenting class. If this has been your experience and you would benefit from parenting classes then click here to register for a class.

Some examples of what you will get from our parenting classes:

  • A look at how you were parented
  • An understanding of the different parenting styles
  • An understanding your own parenting style
  • Positive communication
  • Disciplining in love
  • Setting healthy boundaries
  • Understanding and learning the language of a positive parent
  • Understanding the dynamics of co-parenting
  • Creating a co-parenting plan
  • Understanding the cyber world in which our kids live and how to manage it
