Parent Effectiveness Training is the world’s No.1 parenting program 

based on the work of Dr Thomas Gordon, a psychologist who received two Nobel Peace Prize Nominations for his program. We all want to be able to raise happy, resilient, responsible and successful children, and sometimes, that feels like a very difficult challenge.

Our children don’t come with an instruction manual but help is on it’s way…

 P.E.T. is an opportunity to explore your needs and role as a parent; learn how to deal with children’s challenging behaviour,  avoid the twelve most common communication errors with your children, overcome stress and learn how to influence your children and create the relationships you truly want.

“This program is an empowering journey to the Heart of your Parenting, a program where everyone wins.”

“I commend Parent Effectiveness for empowering parents to improve their relationships with their children, so that they can be the loving parents they always wanted to be, so their children can flourish, and their warm connection to each other can endure through life.”  Dr Louise Porter, Child Psychologist/Parenting Author
