Frequently Asked Questions

How is it different from other parenting courses?
Most parenting courses offering strategies for particular parenting challenges. The problem is that the issues change all the time. Partnership Parenting offers a 3 stage framework which gets to the root behind challenges and can be applied to any situation. More

What age do my children need to be?
The approach works from pre-verbal infancy all the way through to adulthood. Parents with children of all ages come on the course, though historically most have children under 10, probably because of the way it has been marketed. More

How long does it take to make a difference?
Most people start to notice changes which last as they use tools from the first few weeks of a course. Deeper transformation in family patterns happens over a longer period. More
