The Healing Group

It's Mental Health Awareness Week and I wanted to feature a fabulous company.

A few weeks ago my husband and I (and my sister and her hubby) participated in a class at The Healing Group called The Power of Positive Parenting. I'd heard such remarkable things about this technique that I knew I wanted to hear the more.

I'm all for things that promote healthy, strong relationships and this class (based on the book) had a lot of great ideas. It was created by Glenn Latham a professor at Utah State University (if I remember correctly) who, through research, states practical application of getting the behavior you want from your children. I believe this is the sorta thing that you can do over and over and still gather a lot of helpful information.

The Healing Group is planning on teaching these classes a few times a year so if you're interested, contact them to get on the list so they can notify you when the next class is offered.

That was a good class. We'll have to do a follow up post in 3 months to report if our positive parenting is effective!

I have that book, guess I need to get it out and look over it.
Sounds like the group was fun!

I don't know if a book or class could fix the problems with my children because the biggest problem is that they turned out like me. It definitely can't hurt though.
