1. Reading the original The Parents Toolshop®: The Universal Blueprint for Building a Healthy Family book.
The pdf e-book is included. You can order a softcover print book, if you like. ($29.95 + S&H)
The Parent’s Toolshop® book is the only resource that teaches all 150+ practical tools and the advanced uses of the Universal Blueprint®. It is the most comprehensive, accurate, organized, practical, useful parenting resource you may ever read.
I feel like I’ve tumbled head first into a treasure chest of jewels. This is amazing! Here, finally, I feel like I’ve found a parenting book that supports my own perspective and approach, but doesn’t leave me just feeling good about my good intentions. You supply the mortar that holds all those concepts together. The dialogues alone make the book priceless. At first, I thought this “system” might prove overwhelming. But like any good learning aid, it leads you along effortlessly as you collect and put to use all that you find. Thanks for a tremendous resource. --- Susan Kendrick
2. Listening to the Lunch & Learn Audio Series. (A $147 value.) This 10-audio series offers an hour-long audio recording of each live Parents Toolshop® class presentation. It’s like being a fly on the wall in a live Parent’s Toolshop® class, where you can benefit from the class discussions and parents Q&A. Best of all, it highlights for you the most important tools in the Universal Blueprint® to know and use.
This Audio Series is a valuable companion to The Parent's Toolshop® book, both of which I turn to again and again as I work towards a balanced parenting style and effective communication with my family. I play the lectures while I walk, drive, cook, clean, or nurse -- anytime I need to review, reinforce, and clarify what I'm learning in the book. On difficult days, I take a little pressure off by listening to the talks. Then I can return, relaxed and confident, to my family. It's like a mini parenting retreat. For anyone new to The Parent's Toolshop®, these talks make a helpful introduction to the key concepts. I don't think I will ever finish listening to them, just like I won't finish the book, even though I may have read every word twice. I hear and read something different every time, depending on the challenges I'm facing at home. --- Andrea Bustos

The grad support group really helped us. My husband and I went together. We brought in our list of questions about specific problems we were having such as dawdling and we then went home and tried out what we learned. It was great. We hope to attend again. --- Patricia Schumm
