Become a Certified Parenting Educator

Do you believe that bribing, nagging, threatening, or punishing don’t work? Do you believe peace begins at home? Do you crave doing work that you love?


Our vision is to train passionate, parenting experts to transform the way we live at home. We use the Redirecting Children’s Behavior (RCB) material which gives them tools to teach frustrated parents, teachers, grandparents and other professionals. RCB is a researched based parenting course with no boring lectures. Instead it is packed with new skills and  powerful role plays. Going through these scenarios help parents not only get the information but feel it at such deep level that they don’t want to go back to their old ways. Keep reading more to see if teaching the course will give you the skills you need for teaching parenting freedom.

We do too.

Father with his Son

I hate to admit this but, there was time when I didn’t even like my kid. You have brought joy back into our relationship.

Couple in a Kitchen

You not only changed my child’s behavior but you also saved our marriage.


This one still brings tears to my eyes. It was from a 9 year old boy, 'Thank you for teaching my Dad not to spank. I was really getting worried about my little sister.'

What’s included in the training?

Michelle Gambs Rohen, MA, LMHC
Holding Hands

The RCB course taught me how to parent. Not only how to love my child, but to illuminate and address the many needs a little person has. It beautifully marries two polar opposites - kind and firm at the same moment. The course has changed my life and continues to change families everyday in my practice.

Why RCB Really Works >

Lynne Apple, BA, IBCLC

International Board Certified Lactation Consultant

RCB has become a key piece in our hospital’s programs for parents. I have a drawerful of enthusiastic evaluations from over 1000 parents, teachers and childcare workers who have taken RCB. The entire community, including pediatricians and family physicians help get the work out about the course. Our Community Foundation now helps us with scholarships. We all consider RCB a gift we give our community.
