What is an Active Parenting Workshop?

The challenge of successfully parenting children has always been among parents’ hardest-won achievements.  You can create harmony and stability in your family while raising your children to be responsible, courageous, and prepared for independent life.  

Active Parenting is a three-day program, 2.5 hours each day.  In three sessions packed with activities, discussion, real-world examples, and feedback, you will learn a proven approach to parenting, plus indispensable techniques and insights for overcoming obstacles that will bring happiness and harmony into your home. 

The program is facilitated by Matthew Turner, a former school counselor of 18 years, former school administrator, and classroom teacher.  Mr. Turner has delivered the Active Parenting program to over 1500 additional resources, insights, and tools for parenting success.  

A breakdown of each day’s learning: 

Day 1:  

  • Styles of Parenting
  • Brain Development
  • Mutual Respect
  • Method of Choice

Day 2: 

  • Who Owns the Problem?
  • Active Communication
  • Feelings, Empathy, and Problem-Solving

Day 3: 

  • Effective Discipline
  • “I” Messages
  • Logical Consequences
  • Eliminating Power Struggles

Each day’s session builds on the previous session, so it is recommended to attend all three.
