Raising children in today's uncertain and dangerous world can be a daunting task. Children are susceptible to so many forces around them, and they can be lost in the chaos without a strong set of parents to guide them. Now is the time to start parent education: rely on Active Parenting Publishers to teach you with its state-of-the-art parenting courses and programs. Active Parenting's positive parenting program is a workshop of sorts, designed by an established psychologist, Dr. Michael H. Popkin, who uses sound Adlerian psychological principles in all of the programs. It's a value that can't be beat!

Improving your parenting can be as easy as enrolling in one of Active Parenting's online parent education programs, a six-session class that will teach you everything you need to know about being a superb parent for your children, including instilling confidence in your children, using nonviolent discipline techniques, and encouraging mutual respect.
