"The Redirecting Children's Behavior course taught me how to parent.  Not how to love my child, but to illuminate and address the many other needs a little person has.  It beautifully marries two polar opposites-firm and kind-and teaches parents how to exhibit both in the very same moment.  The course has changed my life and continues to change those families who are reached by this material.  I see it every day...."

I took RCB several years ago, and all I can say is, "What a difference one course can make!"   It's amazing how well RCB techniques work, and how quickly they brought more peace and harmony into our home.  You'll walk away with an entire toolbox for "home improvement"!

From Kathy Barnett, RN, MSM, Clinical Nurse Specialist


“When I took the “Redirecting Children’s Behavior” (RCB) parenting course several years ago, I saw immediate results with my children.  It was almost magical how fights and power struggles gave way to cooperation and teamwork.  I got way more than my money’s worth on the parenting front alone, but as an emergency physician, I’ve had the added benefit of using RCB principles with children (and sometimes adults!) in the emergency center.  It is truly magical to take a hurt, sick, and frightened child and be able to engage them, encourage them, and turn what could be a traumatic experience into an empowering one”.

Lonnie Draper, M.D.
Vice President, Emergency Services

"I love teaching RCB because of the confidence I have that the understanding and application of the philosophy and specific redirections helps parents to effectively do the difficult job of parenting. As instructors, we help parents nurture their children and give them critical thinking skills and the emotional intelligence they will need to be successful as adults. It truly is about parenting with the long-term results in mind. I know that after taking RCB, parents feel more confident and embrace their parental responsibility with more joy. RCB is based in sound developmental and psychological theory." … Delene Cole, MFT, RCB Instructor, Florida

You can help our families

Stress, technology overload, violence in schools, single-parent homes, stepfamilies - these are the dynamics of our families and children. Today's families are searching for new ways to connect and influence their children. 

Consider the following statistics:

  • The average child in America spends only 12.5 minutes per day in communication with his or her parents.
  • Of those 12.5 minutes, parents spend 8.5 minutes correcting, criticizing or arguing.
  • This leaves only four minutes each day of instruction of values, morals, ethics, attitudes and affection.
  • In a study of children ages 1-12, the single most important determinant of self-esteem is the perception of how much they are valued by their parents.
  • On average, a child receives 400 negative comments compared to only 32 positive comments per day. 

How much is the training?
$1795 with a non-refundable (but transferable) deposit of $500. Early bird registration of $1595 if you register by February 17th. Special rates for two or more people from your group.
