This course is a parenting course with practical guidance to equip parents raise their kids to take responsibility for their actions, attitudes, and emotions. Many parents attempt to raise their children to be good by not letting them do bad things, and they use anger as their tool. But children must learn to make wise choices from the consequences thereof. And that can only be accomplished by providing boundaries that have consequences.

What You'll Learn

  • Define appropriate boundaries and consequences for kids

  • Set limits and still be a loving parent

  • Help them lead balanced, productive and fulfilling lives

  • Bring balance to an out-of-control family life

  • Apply the ten laws of boundaries to parenting

  • Understand the six steps to implementing boundaries in the home
