As an internationally-recognized parenting expert, publications like Parentsmagazine and rado/TV talk shows regularly quote her advice.

 

Research-Based Techniques, Tips, and Training You Can Trust

Parents Toolshop® is the culmination of decades of research, outcome evaluation testing, and real- world success.  The program underwent 10 years of extensive outcome evaluation tests involving over 3000 parents and professionals from diverse backgrounds.

  • In participant evaluations, 83% rated the program “excellent,” 100% rated it “good” or “excellent.” 96% said they learned new information and 100% said they would recommend the program to others 
  • Of the parents who had custody of their children, 100% said they successfully used the skills with their children and 92% said they had used the skills with other children, or to improve adult relationships

Nearly 1300 parents participated in an eight-week parenting class in the Dayton (Ohio) area. Almost 1000 of these parents completed an outcome-focused pre/post class parenting skill assessment to evaluate their knowledge and mastery of the 11 skill areas. Here are the results:

  • Nearly 825 parents successfully graduated from the parenting class (83% graduation rate)
  • Almost 100% (99.6%) showed improvement in their parenting skills
  • On a scale of 11 points, the average improvement in skills was 2.4 points, from below the midrange (5.41) to the “more skillful” range (7.81). Nearly 20% scored in the highest skill range!

I learned so much. It was outstanding. One of the few CEUs that I feel like I learned so much that I can use and pass on. The presenter Jody is so knowledgeable and created an environment that welcome questions, interaction and talking about mistakes. — Tina Rich

I have been a foster parent for 3 years and attend 10 hours of training each year. This is by far the most useful and helpful of all the seminars we have attended. It’s the one that gives me practical techniques that I actually use every day. — Cathy Miller

There’s so much about The Parent’s Toolshop® that I like. As a parent, it is so easy to react to problems. This offers so many healthy alternatives. As a counselor, I like the way I can apply the process to all relationships. There were so many things that even as a therapist, with all the training I’ve had, that I didn’t realize—like the myths about timeouts. I’ve been giving the same kind of advice lots of other professionals give—and assumed it must be right, because so many people believed it. This was a real eye-opener. — Ken Rogiers, Lighthouse Christian Counseling, Inc.

Testimonials

This is a fabulous program!! I am a parent, a grandparent, a therapist for children and adolescents and their families, and a former elementary school teacher and wish all parents would take this workshop. It is so effective, positive, and useful…and so “user-friendly.” I have recommended it to many families, including my own adult children. A million “thank-you’s” Jody, for this treasured gift! — Valerie K. Sorosiak, MS, PCC Jody’s approach is so refreshing!

A lot of parenting advice seems to consists of a lecture about what you are doing wrong and then instructions on how to do it “their” way. Jody’s method is different. She shares proven methods for achieving your parenting goals and provides concrete example of language and phrases that work with any parenting styles and give real results! She seems to understand what many other experts miss – that you shouldn’t ever have to choose between effective parenting and kind, respectful parenting. Thank you Jody for giving me tools that I can feel good about using! — Nicole Eatough

Your class has been a life changing and enlightening experience that has given me hope!  Thank you for teaching your course and empowering parents. — Mary Mancuso

Thank you for sharing your expertise and experiences with me during the class sessions. I have learned a tremendous amount. I have been able to incorporate many of the strategies into my household. I also find that my husband is willing to learn the techniques as well. The time and energy it takes to synthesize the research and design a tangible process that continues to grow must be enormous. Your passion, enthusiasm and commitment to excellence comes through in the way that you describe the process and use examples to reinforce the readings.  — Brenda Gaubie Currie

These skills can be used in all your relationships (personal & business). I was amazed at the simplicity of the techniques. All it takes is some practice! — Susan Vance

I’m not sure exactly how to thank you for teaching this class.It has literally changed the dynamics in my home from a battle (complete with swearing, orders, and foot stomping) to a mostly cooperative, sometimes chaotic, but overall LOVING atmosphere. I am enjoying my children more than I ever have, because I have learned what to reasonably expect of them and how to teach them my expectations. I am keeping myself calm (most of the time!) and focusing on what I want my children to do, what they can do, instead of constantly scolding, “no!” and putting them in time out. I don’t know if there’s a greater gift you can give a person than helping them better their relationship with their children. I am so, so grateful to you for teaching me how. What I’ve learned in this class will positively impact my family’s entire future. Thank you. All my best — Rose Lounsbury After learning the Cooperation Toolset, I put it to the test with my strong willed children. We didn’t have a single argument or power struggle the entire week! Isn’t that a small miracle? I even got my daughter to stop whining! — Lena Guilfoil
