For 5 years I ran a 9 week course for parents called P.E.T parent effectiveness training. I no longer run it as a 9 week course but I design the knowledge and content of the course to individual family needs. unfortunately not all parents or caregivers can spare three hours per week.
Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) is a parenting course that is suitable for Parents, Grandparents and Caregivers. It provides support and positive parenting tools that can be applied in real life. And it has been designed to assist all kinds of families, including separated and blended families.
Created by the award-winning psychologist and three-time Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Dr. Thomas Gordon in 1962, this pioneering parenting course has already helped millions of parents around the world. It is run by qualified instructors, and uses a non-punitive approach—no naughty corner, no threats or use of power, no punishment and no praise—as a way of positive parenting.
Whether you’re a parent, grandparent or caregiver of a teenager or toddler, you will have experienced how challenging—and even overwhelming—parenting can be. There is no instruction manual for children. And as a parent, knowing what to do is not always automatic or instinctive.
Learn effective communication skills
Parenting Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) teaches communication skills to parents that are proven to work. And any parent, grandparent or caregiver can learn these communication and conflict-resolution skills with Dr. Gordon’s P.E.T. program, taught by a certified P.E.T. Instructor.
When you use these skills, you’ll be amazed at the dramatic improvement in your family relationships, as well as the other relationships in your life.
