Practical Tools for You

That Make the Difference for Your Children

As evidenced in our research funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), our tools focus on four building blocks of effective parenting.

  1. Positive activities that you will do with your children
  2. Listening tools to get your children to share more
  3. Effective tools to decrease your children’s misbehaviors
  4. Practical tools to protect your children from conflict with your ex-partner
