Relationship Based Discipline: Online Course | Thursday, 01. February 2018

Feeling like you can't get to your child? At your wits end with disruptive behaviour? Feel that your children don't listen to anything you say? Wondering if there is something more effective than yelling, time-outs, or physical discipline? Feeling overwhelmed as a parent and aren't sure what else to do? Or maybe you are just trying to look for ways to be the best parent you can be while honouring the relationship with your child.
