Hold on to your kids?

Yes! And I can help you.

I am your East Kootenay connection to the courses of Dr. Gordon Neufeld, developmental psychologist and parenting authority. Dr. Neufeld founded the Neufeld Institute and co-wrote the bestselling book Hold On to Your Kids.

I facilitate courses in: Cranbrook, Fernie, Invermere, Kimberley and Creston.

Why is a facilitated video course most helpful?

It's 10 pm. Your kids are—finally!—asleep.

It's been a hard day and all you want to do is put your feet up and watch Grey's Anatomy.

But weren't you supposed to watch the next hour of Dr. Neufeld's Power to Parent tonight?

Oh, right. And there it sits. *Sigh.*

While it's perfectly fine to buy DVDs  of Dr. Neufeld's courses, (and I encourage it,) DVD ownership does not necessarily lead to understanding—or even viewing.

A facilitated course offers some very tangible benefits:

  • Rich discussions with other parents
  • A chance to learn the material without your children being present
  • The opportunity to have your questions answered directly by a trained facilitator
  • A deeper understanding—the material is broken down into digestible segments
  • Darn good snacks
  • A reason to stick with your intentions
  • Special rates for private groups

So. If you're considering buying a Neufeld DVD, by all means, do. And when you want to learn the material, understand it, and apply it to your life, contact me.

I can help you!!
