Welcome to the Smarter Parenting Free Lessons page. Along with our Parenting Lesson videos, we've included a short guide to help you follow along and study. Also, it's important that you watch the videos in order so you can pick up the most important skills first — the first skills will help you complete the later lessons.

These are core skills used in treatment by professionals that parents could implement in the home. Using these skills with a child who may need therapeutic treatment will support them and help them improve much more quickly.

  1. Observe & Describe

    A base for everything we teach — this skill will help you improve communication in your home and strengthen family relationships

  2. Following Instructions

    This is a skill that will be useful throughout your child's life, so teach it as soon as you can. As they practice, they will get better at following simple instructions with a positive attitude

  3. Your child can make good decisions

    We teach you the steps to clearly, effectively communicate with your child. This is an important skill for several of our other lessons, as well

  4. Correcting your child's behaviors effectively

    We teach you to stay calm and correct your child's behaviors in a positive way. Learn to talk through the behavior of which you disapprove and set realistic consequences

  5. Preventive Teaching

    Teach your children what you want them to do instead of what you don't want them to do by focusing on the good things that your child is doing and staying positive
