Positive Parenting

red squiggly bar

You love your kids.
So why's it sometimes so hard to love being a parent?

It's easy to feel like you should automatically know how to parent. Or that you should love every messy, stressful, exhausting second of raising a kid. But that's not reality. Your family's learning as you go, figuring out how to keep up, set rules and solve problems together. That's normal, but it isn't easy. Every day brings new challenges, and it can seem like you're always running low…on time, on sleep, on money or patience.

It's no wonder so many parents feel so overwhelmed. TalkReadPlay's FREE Positive Parenting offerings can help. Programs teach families how to spend less time battling misbehavior and more time building close relationships. You'll develop the positive parenting skills to manage stress and encourage healthy habits. And that can mean more good days for your family.

You have choices.

Positive Parenting offerings are for parents with children ages 0-12 years of age.

We don't tell anyone how to be a parent. Instead, we offer practical advice, backed by science and the successes seen by thousands of families. You'll find tips for a range of issues, from raising toddlers to learning how to cope with complex problems at home. With these offerings, you can find the right level of support, set your own priorities and goals, decide what works for your family, and tailor strategies you learn to meet your unique needs.
