In his 4-week online course, we focus on families of teenagers! While children aged 0 to 9 are focused on building life skills and home skills, when they are tweeners, or aged 9 to 13, they are focused on building their social skills. It is when they reach adolescence, aged 14 to 18, that they plug back into the family life and begin identifying values.
Holding weekly Family Meetings influences the family dynamic and atmosphere in a positive and lasting way. It is possible to solve multiple challenges (fighting, chores, tattling, arguing at the store) during one 15 – 20 minute meeting and remain calm, logical, and respectful while doing it. Within a few short weeks you will experience first-hand, the power of this parenting tool.

"We read Vicki's books and we took one of her parenting courses. We also took her four-week online course "Growing a Grownup" with her and recently did an hour-long coaching session. I have left every session with specific action items and plans that have made me a better parent. I take professional development seminars, clinics, and certification exams for my job. Why wouldn't I do the same for my parenting? And it's always good to find someone whose approach is fail-safe and grounded in research and experience. Need parenting help? Here's my advice: Find Vicki Hoefle." - Mark A.
