Effort is one of the things that gives meaning to life. Effort means you care about something, that something is important to you and you are willing to work for it. ~ Daniel Pink

It’s my passion to help you gain understanding, clarity and practices to get back on the path of positive parenting.
I’m inviting you to spend seven 1.5 hour classes with me and a dynamic group of like minded parents. Together we’ll turn your parenting challenges into social and life skills for success – or at least take leaps and bounds in that direction!
The next series begins September 14th, via Zoom!
As you might guess, I’ve faced MANY parenting challenges myself. I don’t know any parent who hasn’t. Since I’ve started practicing Positive Discipline, my relationships with my children have grown and deepened. Read below what parent’s who’ve taken the class have to say:
My husband and I recently took Lisa’s class. We have 2 boys ages 2 and 5. Our goals going into the class were to get on the same page with our parenting and to yell less/be less frustrated. Recently, my mom remarked to me that we seem happier and the kids seem more well behaved!
I highly recommend Lisa’s classes for anyone that is struggling with parenting challenges and is craving a more loving and mutually respectful connection with their children.
I attended Lisa’s Positive Discipline Series to help me with my own children AND to enhance the work that I do with families. Lisa’s style is relaxed, collaborative, well thought out and she has the ability to dig deep with parents to discuss challenging topics in a compassionate way. I learned a tremendous amount in her class and I now have many new parenting strategies and tools. Personally, I feel more connected to my children and have a better understanding of how to navigate difficult situations when they inevitably come up. I highly recommend Lisa’s classes for anyone that is struggling with parenting challenges and is craving a more loving and mutually respectful connection with their children.

The class was the perfect tonic to get me back on the parenting path that I had wanted for myself since the beginning.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Lisa since her now-seventeen-year-old son was in my sixth grade humanities class in 2007. I was familiar with Positive Discipline from a teaching perspective, and when my twins were born in January 2009 I knew that I wanted to raise my kids with a positive discipline approach. By the time they turned three, I had moved on from teaching, and my positive discipline skills had lapsed. I was having a difficult time dealing with the behavior of two three year olds. I was often angry, I yelled a lot, and I had a hard time letting things go.
I contacted Lisa and signed up for her class right away. The class was the perfect tonic to get me back on the parenting path that I had wanted for myself since the beginning.
Reading the Positive Discipline book, participating in the class discussions, and learning from Lisa’s encouraging teaching style reminded me of what I had previously known (and since failed to apply on a regular basis) about positive discipline. The class also gave me many more techniques to use in my day-to-day interactions with my children.
Since taking the class, I have noticed that I don’t yell as much, I consider my actions and behaviors more carefully, and I am more connected with my kids. I now give more respect to them, instead of only demanding respect from them. We now work more as a team. I often think back to the role plays, the stories that other parents shared, and the patient and guiding way that Lisa addressed the difficulties of parenting that we all expressed throughout the seven weeks of the positive discipline class. It has all become an integral part of my day-day parenting.
I would recommend this class to any parent who knows that there are better ways to interact with your kids, but just aren’t sure what those ways are. If you go in with a willingness to learn, change, and apply the techniques over the long haul, I cannot recommend Lisa’s Positive Discipline class enough. It could literally change your life.
