I believe we have been longing our whole lives to be real and authentic with ourselves and others - these programs teach us how. 1. P.E.T. Program It's rare to find a parent these days who isn't feeling stressed and tired from juggling life's demands. To benefit from P.E.T. you just need the desire to learn how to build warmer closer relationships with your children that will stand the test of teenagehood and beyond. P.E.T. is just the right balance of learning powerful and practical communication skills and a philosophy that will support you in creating harmony in your home. Parents graduate from their training feeling calmer and more confident and competent to handle their parenting and lifestyle challenges. 2. Be Your Best Program - a personal empowerment program for everyone: With all the skills of P.E.T. but with more emphasis on taking more control of your life and becoming way more assertive and getting more of your personal needs met! Great program for anyone who wants to be more effective and highly recommended for parents also. “I discovered ways to find peaceful resolutions to conflicts and how to break certain patterns within my life. I feel more skilled in how to maintain deep personal relationships through honest and authentic communication.” Kim Victoria, Dandenong Ranges. 3. Instructor Training: Becoming a BYB or P.E.T. instructor is one of the most rewarding things I have done. If you really want to become a Master Communicator, this is a great way to do it. I offer training in a variety of ways to allow flexibility to suit our busy lives. Please call to discuss. 4. Instructor Refreshers: A fun way for instructors to stay current and connected or to get coaching for re-entering teaching. These can be 1:1 or in a small group, either in person or via Zoom. Whatever your needs, I look forward to talking with you and exploring the possibilities these wonderful programs offer. Warm regards, Judith Please call me on M:0416036961

In our quest to parent effectively, to do the best by our children, ourselves and our family, we think carefully about the best way to discipline our child.
