(IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are interested in signing up for this class but this time doesn't work for you because of where you live on the planet (we've had interest from such places as India, Norway, and New Zealand) or you have a scheduling conflict, there are other dates and times being offered. Go back to the calendar page and see what else is being offered that may fit. And, if none of those fit, please drop me a line or send me an email, and let me know where you are on this beautiful planet so we can create a time that will work for you.)

The total cost for the six-week series is normally $120. However, in acknowledgement of Child Abuse Prevention month, I am offering a 10% discount for all classes in April. (A payment plan is available, please ask.)
(NOTE: Both parents are invited and encouraged to attend for no additional charge.)
Consider this: For the price of a few lattes per week, you could get started on the path to transform your whole relationship with your kids. Forever.
Space is limited, though, and reservations are a must. Reserve your place now:

How will the teleclass/workshop work? Here's how:
- All participants dial into a conference line at class time. We begin each session with a check-in, during which each participant (who wants to, of course) shares his or her successes, struggles, questions, or stumbles, and we discuss that. We then jump into the content for that week.
- Class size is limited to no more than 6 participants, because it is a highly interactive class, and this affords everyone the time to engage and be supported.
- At the end of each weekly session, there will be homework offered that is related to what we discussed during the session that will help deepen the participants' experience and learning.
- Each session is recorded and uploaded to a private password-protected page on the Peaceful Parent Whisperer website along with a transcript of the content and the homework for that session. The page is only accessible to the participants for confidentiality's sake. Participants can either download the recordings to listen to later and/or share with their parenting partner, or they can listen right there on the website. This is beneficial in case a participant has to miss a session or leave early or tend to their child during the class.
- During the 6-week program (and afterwards, too), I am available to whomever needs me, either by telephone, by email, or via a private Facebook group that will have been set up for the times in between session when folks may need a little more help or may want to support each other. This is a very critical part of what makes this program so effective!
- If you have any other questions about how this will work, or if you have any concerns or issues (like, you'd really like to participate but you're not sure how you'll manage money-wise), please reach out. We will figure out something. I have never turned anyone away because finances were tricky, and I'm not about to start now.
And, remember: If the scheduling is not workable for you, please be aware that we are always scheduling new sessions. We generally arrange the scheduling based on when the participants can make it (for instance, a recent session began at 10 pm to accommodate the participants' needs). Let us know what your scheduling needs are by sending an email or using the contact page.
The point is that if you want to take the class but feel that there is something holding you back, let's see if we can find a way around that obstacle.
