Jealousy over a new baby is not uncommon. The older child can go from having all of your time to being forced to share it with a baby which gets lots of love and attention. They learn quickly that smacking is unacceptable, particularly when you refrain from smacking yourself, and instead speak honestly and firmly to your child.

How valuable is this information?

What we are not told when our babies arrive is that the greater part of our child’s learning is done unconsciously as a small child, and most of it up to the age of seven, called the imprint period. Information at an extensive rate of 5 billion synaptic connections per day is downloaded into a small child’s unconscious mind.
As parents we are the primary source of a child’s conscious and unconscious learnings and it is this fact which makes it all the more important in how we interact with our children during these formative years.

Why should I invest in this course?

This course is definitely worth the investment of a relatively small amount of money and time. Think of it in this way:

  • What price would you put on having fun with your kids, being less stressed and having better quality time with the entire family?
  • What price would you put on having a more loving, intelligent relationship with your children?
  • What price would you put on ending temper tantrums, family feuds and cheeky back-chat?
  • What price would you put on getting kids to listen to you without you having to resort to constant repeating and eventual yelling?
  • What price would you put on producing self-empowered children who are open, honest and express themselves congruently?
  • How much money have you invested in training yourself to be a better parent?

So much money is spent on all sorts of things for our children from sports kits and activities and music lessons to the very latest electronic games, etc. We tend to spend a lot of money on them in the material sense, but how much do you spend on their psychological well-being?

Being a good parent is the most important job we will ever have to do. It’s a huge responsibility and we only get one shot at producing happy, self-sufficient adults.

Not only is this course unique, no one but you needs to know you’re doing it and you can work through the course in the comfort of your home.

Furthermore, Parenting Skills Online is closely linked with various children’s charities and you have the choice to donate part of the fee to one of our charity partners. In additional, we provide full support during and after you undertake the course.

Is this course aimed at making me a perfect parent?

Perfect parenting probably does not exist, but being better at the roles you play is always achievable. This course aims to enable you to be a much better parent, both from your own point of view and, remarkably, from your children’s point of view also.

When they say you are the best mum or dad in the world, you just might be after you take this course!

Which ages of children does the course focus on?

Parenting Skills Online is designed for parents of children of all ages but it is most useful before your child learns to talk. Broadly speaking then, it caters for children between the ages of one and 18, at which age they are termed an adult and therefore responsible for their own lives.

Realistically, however, the principles contained in the course can be applied to everyone, young and old! Listening skills (beginning in Book 5, ‘Being a Helper’, can be learned and used with anyone; your child, best friend, mother, grandfather or partner.

All of the e-books give examples of how to apply the skills to youngsters of all ages and this is why, as you learn the material, you will adapt the techniques to your growing children.

Will I see results if just one parent goes through the material?

Yes,  even if only one parent goes through the course, the results will be evident.

What tends to happen is when one parent changes the way they deal with various issues and uses his or her new skills, the other parent can see improvement, and they tend to copy the techniques. Also as the other parent sees the results, they may be more inclined to participate on the course too.

Obviously, if both parents do the course together, they will be working from the same page on the various training issues. This offers the child a level of consistency and congruency, which prevents playing one parent against the other; they learn to appreciate that both parents say what they mean and mean what they say!

Why download this material and review it in privacy?

Being a successful parent in today’s world is a very challenging, yet rewarding task. Being able to review this material in the privacy of your own home, at free moments when you are able to do so, will allow you the time and opportunity to really get to grips with the subtle skills reviewed throughout the course. Everyone’s schedules vary, so you pick the times to review the material that fit in with your lifestyle.

Also, a lot of parents don’t like asking for help and in some cases, don’t like admitting they need help. Some parents may just be a little bit curious to see if there’s anything that might assist in a particular situation with their child. Then there are parents who simply cannot leave the home for one of many reasons to attend a course. In each of these cases, Parenting Skills Online is the perfect answer to learning a few tips and techniques without having to tell or ask anyone. And, if you still have a query after doing the course, Supernanny will attempt to steer you in the right direction.

We do emphasise that practising the exercises, ‘Building Bridges’, included in each e-book, will make a big difference and speed up the learning process, particularly if you have a friend or partner with whom to practise.

Should I not just know how to be a parent?

Although we expect it to be, parenting is not as natural a process as we would like. This is largely due to the way we ourselves were parented. One of the jobs as a parent is to be a model for your child, ie, little girls learn how to be a mother from watching their own mother but this is all learnt on an unconscious level. If your own parent had shortcomings through their own upbringing, they may not know of a better way of being a good example to you.

We all want the very best for our children and while you may well be doing a pretty good job, it’s like everything else, you can always learn a few additional skills, which can make a huge difference to both you and your child. This course provides you with the tips and techniques to enhance your skills and to apply the information in real life situations, and all without moving outside the door!

Do I have to take the course all at once?

No, you do not have to download all the e-books and take the course all at once. You can download the e-books one at a time and go through these in your own time and at your own pace.

How soon can I start the program?

You can download the course right away, start reading the e-books and doing the exercises. There’s no time like the present!

I am a single parent, is this course useful to me and my ex-partner?

Despite beginning with a sense of joy and commitment, about 50% of marriages in the western world, end in divorce. Even without a formal marriage, former partners who have children together can drift apart and end up living separate lives.

Couples who are no longer together, may well wish to continue being good parents and to remain involved in their children’s developing lives. Remaining in contact with an ex-partner can be difficult without having a sound basis in good co-parenting skills, and developing a new way to communicate without further hurt and denial of love to the children involved.

Going through divorce can be a crisis and a major loss for the adults and children involved. Upon separating, each parent has a dual task; to make the adjustment to being a single person as well as to being a single parent. At the same time, they are not exactly single parents if they intend to work out a co-parenting arrangement to remain passionately involved in their children’s lives.

People who separate but continue to work cooperatively as parents have a very positive effect on their children’s development and adjustment to living in two separate households. This course, if shared between all the parties involved, will offer some great practical support in challenging times.

One of the most useful skills a parent can learn; reflective listening is a mixture of skills which includes silence and good attention. Book 7 also introduces paraphrasing, reflecting feelings and reflecting hidden meanings.
We train children to think clearly whilst at the same time teaching them not to express their feelings. However, with children, the ‘surface’ problem is rarely the same as the underlying one.

Reflective listening helps you check with the speaker to make sure you’ve really heard and understood what they meant. It also gives them a feeling of safety in being understood and allows them to continue speaking to explore the problem further.

People in the counselling professions are taught to look beneath what is called the ‘presenting problem’ and reflective listening allows the speaker to open up and trust that their disclosures will not be judged in anyway. Book 7 is the first of two books which teaches you to become an expert listener and is extremely useful, not just with your children but with friends and family too.
