You KNOW Today's World is Different Than When YOU Were a Child --- But are Children Different, too?
Parents Toolshop® can empower and equip you with a unique, reliable problem-solving system you can personalize to your needs, so you can prevent or respond effectively to any parenting challenge with any child, any age, any time --- in seconds!
Parents have been raising children for eons, without any books, classes, or "experts."
The science of parenting started around the 1940's, almost 80 years ago! Human beings don't biologically or psychologically change much in 80 years, even 800 years, so children have not changed much since then.
The first parenting education programs started in the 1960's, based on this research. More recent research has confirmed most of the initial findings, and explains more about why children are the way they are, based on recent brain science.
Parents Toolshop® was created in 1992, based on a 10-year literature study of hundreds of proven-effective research-based parenting programs to date, and is constantly updating, based on new research and current events. But you know what?
In the 30 years we've been teaching our core parenting skills training we've continued adding new programs based on current events that parents (and their children) are facing. Only one teaching had to change as new research emerged. Otherwise, everything The Parents Toolshoop® teaches has been confirmed by ongoing research!
So what does this mean?
YOU and other parents today are facing all the common challeges almost all parents have historically faced, including those we feature in our Done4U Solutions Resources: Getting Children to Bed, Asleep, and Staying there all Night --- Homework Hassles –-- Morning Madness --- Teaching Children how to Clean & do Chores --- Picky Eaters --- Sibling Squabbles --- Temper Tantrums --- Basic Bullying --- and many more.
PLUS you are facing NEW ISSUES & CHALLENGES in this new milleneum and global community that no other generation of parents (or children) have ever had to face! These are the topics we discuss on our live Parents Tool Talk® Show, we we interview experts and discuss topics like: social media --- access to technology 24/7 --- cyberbullying --- school shootings --- gun violence --- and more.
While you are in new territory, children are still human beings whose development hasn't fundamentally changed and current research still supports using the "proven-effective" skills parents have been advised to use for decades. So it's really only the ISSUES that are different, so parenting how you were parenting will no longer be enough for your children to get by on. So what does that mean?
Children need empowered and equipped with the skills, characteristics, and qualities they need to successfully navigate today's ever-changing world, with all its temptations and pitfalls. So YOU need to be empowered with a parenting system that equips YOU with the knowlege and mastery of parenting skills that can teach and guide your children --- each child, through each stage and situation, based on their individual needs and your family values.
