No 1. in the world today   Parent Effectiveness Training P.E.T.

As rewarding as being a parent is, it can be equally challenging and frustrating.  P.E.T. is a communication program designed to assist parents in raising happy, resilient, and responsible children.

No more timeout, counting to 3, yelling, nagging, or bribing needed to get things done – just respectful, understanding, and clear communication. Yes, it is possible and achievable!

Developed by Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Dr Thomas Gordon, P.E.T. is about empowering children and parents with the tools for conflict resolution empathy and so much more.

’These are skills critical to all healthy relationships’. Steve Biddulph
