Would you love to take a Parents Toolshop® class,
but just don’t have the time to attend a class or read The Parent’s Toolshop® book?

Do you practically live in your car, commuting to work
or driving your children to and from school and their extra-curricular activities?

Well here’s some good news!
You can “attend” a full-length Parent’s Toolshop® class
wherever you are and whenever you have some time.

Just listen to one, more or all the sessions in the Lunch & Learn Audio Series.
Each one provides you with the core concepts and practical tools of
one “Toolset” in The Parent’s Toolshop®.
(A Toolshop® “Toolset” is a group of tools that serve a common purpose.)

You can use these audios to learn the basics of the entire
Universal Blueprint® Parenting Success Formula system
get all you need to prevent or respond helpfully to any parenting challenge!

Once you’ve learned these skills, whether through these audios or The Parent’s Toolshop® book,
you can replay these audios anytime you want a quick refresher,
to keep your skills sharp and remind you of key points that will keep your progress on track.
Listen to them over and over again, as your children grow, mature,
and reach new developmental stages, which present new challenges!

will work now, today, next week, next year, and years from now,
because they are timeless, universal parenting principles.

The Lunch and Learn Parenting Series is a valuable companion to The Parent’s Toolshop, 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. 

My mother told me that my eight-year-old has taught her how to use I-messages!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.
