It's one of the most important jobs in our lives: raising children. Make it easier with Active Parenting's respected parenting classes and popular parenting books. Even if you don't have time to take a parenting class outside of your home, Active Parenting brings the lessons to you with these unique, video-based online parenting classes. Each class is based on sound Adlerian psychology and is filled with video, activities, and opportunities for discussion. A better-parenting certificate is available upon successful completion of the final class quiz.

Because it's an online parenting class, you can complete the lessons wherever and whenever you would like, and review past lessons as many times as you need during the enrollment period. The online parenting classes also allow you to connect virtually with other parents to hold discussions and complete activities. (Enrollment period differs depending on the class.)

Though you may be skeptical of how online parenting classes work or are structured, rest assured. You will receive quality instruction and parenting help from a certified Active Parenting Online Leader. These educators are screened, tested and evaluated by Active Parenting staff members before receiving additional training on facilitating an online parenting class. In short, we truly believe that you will be a more confident parent after reviewing our programs.

You will receive access to the online resources, course-work, and videos, plus a Parent's Guide, and the ability to discuss parenting with other adults around the country—all in one parenting class at the low cost of $79.95. It's a small price to pay for a priceless learning experience.

Note: This online parenting course requires Microsoft Internet Explorer or Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome. It is not currently available for mobile devices. Click to see technical requirements for details.

With online parenting classes, you name the time and place.
During your enrollment period, you'll have "24/7" access to all online activities, discussions and past lessons. You will have the ability to "click on and off" to complete the lesson.

Note to court-ordered parents or parents requiring certification:
Please check with the deciding authority about its requirements before registering for an Active Parenting Online Group. A certificate of completion is available to print at the end of the course (upon successful completion of the final quiz).

Note: Some families require more help than a parenting education class can provide. Active Parenting Publishers does not guarantee changes in children as a result of attending parenting classes. Our programs are educational in nature, not therapeutic. Throughout the program, parents are taught that change occurs when they (the parents) work to make the changes. If problems persist, please don't give up; seek the help of a social services or mental health professional.
