Parent and Caregiver Support

family sitting at a table playing a gameSound Discipline offers parenting workshops in a relaxing, fun environment. All of our parenting workshops are currently offered online. You can choose to attend a 2-hour introduction class, or a 6-week series. Parents build community and participate in activities designed to help them understand themselves, deepen an understanding of their children, and bring more peace and joy into the home. We incorporate the latest brain science research and social emotional learning techniques, which are respectful and non-punitive. Our classes help parents strike an important balance between being kind and firm.

“I had already been implementing some positive parenting ideas in our home after doing some reading and research but this class really helped solidify what those strategies look like in practice and for our family individually. The things we discussed helped me to evaluate my own parenting style, find the places where I can improve and gave us practical advice for how to do better. I really enjoyed learning from the teachers and the other parents in a fun and low pressure setting and would definitely recommend this class to any other parent or caregiver. I am very grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to attend!”
