We are a team of professionals and parents with a passion for helping families. Our program is patterned after home-based treatment, where a professional will visit the home in order to instruct children and parents about family development. Our site, smarterparenting.com, is an online adaptation of this extremely effective, evidence-based teaching approach.
The lessons that you'll find on the Smarter Parenting website are derived from the Teaching-Family Model, a program that's been proven to improve children's behavior and strengthen the family as a whole. Other programs and professionals subscribe to this same powerful model to improve family health around the world.
We hope that you'll use smarterparenting.com as a learning tool as well as a teaching resource. We've built the site around 9 Specific Issues Topics and 14 Parenting Lessons. Each of these free resources combines an instructional video with an easy-to-read bulleted article, so you can watch the video and follow along with the printed notes to create your own home lesson plan.
We hope you'll use and benefit from these resources. If you find these lessons effective in improving your child's behavior and strengthening your family, we invite you to follow the Donate Now link at the top of each page of the website. Please give only what you're comfortable giving — anything helps.
