WELCOME TO POSITIVE PARENTING!
Peace Begins At Home
Positive Parenting is an idea based on the assumption that all children are born good, are altruistic and desire to do the right thing. Knowing that, we can teach and discipline them without breaking their spirit. Once you understand the logic behind your child’s misbehavior you can then correct their mistaken belief about how to feel loved, powerful and valued in the world. Positive Parenting teaches discipline that builds your child’s self-esteem, while at the same time correcting their misbehavior. With a relationship built on trust and mutual respect, you will retain a positive influence with your child through their teen years and into adulthood.
Where do I start?
Try one of my mini workshops to get started! Positive Parenting is a lifestyle. My full parenting workshop covers all aspects of your child's growth and development (not to mention your own). I'm offering these recordings of live workshops along with handouts designed to tackle specific issues and give you real word examples of Positive Parenting. I guarantee that after listening to one of these classes and putting in a little effort to follow the instruction you will see the results you are looking for.
A great introduction to Positive Parenting, my teaching style and the benefits of healthy communication with your child.

First class information on a crucial topic. Very helpful for parenting little or older kids...
I was able to start using this knowledge as soon as my son came home from preschool and we had the best night we've had in a long time.
Very helpful... new points of view... I think about our relationships with my son... I learned a lot about preventing power struggles... thank you so much!
Dial-A-Discipline will help you know how to respond when your child doesn’t listen, defies you, is hurtful or hateful, or whines and complains.
Do you find yourself saying...
“Just a minute” or “Don’t interrupt”
“How many times do I have to tell you to…”
“You do it right now!”
“Don’t talk back to me”
Hi, I’m Debbie –
Mother, Grandma, Certified Parent Educator, Author
I am a certified Parent Educator, bringing over 24 years of expertise in the parenting education field to the classes and workshops I provide. I teach the Redirecting Children’s Behavior parenting class and the Redirecting for a Cooperative Classroom training in schools and community centers around the world.
Parents LOVE my workshops because they are practical and provide tools they can go home and use immediately with their kids. I am known for bringing compassion and humor into my teachings.
My current focus project is my Positive Parenting Teleclass. After years of teaching and traveling, I have been able to compile my complete eight week workshop into a program that can be taken at home while still providing the group interactions that parents want and thrive on.
I currently split my time and teaching between New York, California, Virginia and Kentucky and I joyfully travel to new destinations when a community invites me to speak.
