Parenting Education:

“We are obliged to train our children in courage and strength to face life.” — Rudolf Dreikurs.

Raising children can be a joy as well as a challenge. Recent sociopolitical changes have resulted in an overly permissive culture, and have left many parents confused about their roles as parents.

Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP) is an educational program for parents developed by Don Dinkmeyer, Ph.D. and Gary McKay, Ph.D. It is based on the Adlerian principles of democratic parenting. STEP takes the confusion out of parenting by teaching parents

-new skills for communicating and resolving conflicts with their children
-how to use encouragement and logical consequences to change├é┬átheir children’s behaviors
– how to raise responsible and cooperative children
– how to restore harmony in the home

Dr. Polson is a trained leader in Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP).
