Comprehensive classes for parents of children from birth through age four.
To find out how to offer this course online using one of our convenient virtual options, call 800-825-0060 ext 2.
As with all the Active Parenting programs, you will have evidence-based tools you need to offer parenting classes in which parents are able to learn and laugh in a supportive environment.
Implement your parenting class in 3-4 sessions — or hold a 1-session parent engagement workshop. With so many different kinds of parents, why should there be only one kind of class? Active Parenting: First Five Years is designed to make it easy for you to offer:
SESSION I – You and Your Child: Styles of parenting, ages and stages of development, building a bond with your child, the method of choice
SESSION II – Preventing Problems: Your child’s beautiful brain, using nonviolent discipline, the “A-C-T” of parenting
SESSION III – Encouraging Positive Behavior: The power of encouragement, choices and consequences, caring for the caregiver
SESSION IV – Preparing for School Success: 6 smart things parents can do to help young children get ready for school
The material is offered in four handy formats: a video-and-discussion program, video library, online videos, and a “lunch & learn” kit.

Active Parenting: First Five Years—Video 1: You and Your Child (3½ stars out of 4) (2017) 23 min. DVD; $79.95. Active Parenting Publishers. PPR. ISBN: 978-1-59723345-3.
New parents often wonder about what’s going on in the minds of their babies—and how to respond in the best manner possible. Based on the concept of “active parenting” (which emphasizes bonding with children, encouragement, and non-violent discipline), You and Your Child—the first entry in the four-part Active Parenting: First Five Years series—helps parents understand why kids do some of the things they do at various ages. In an entertaining rap music segment, a teen girl and boy describe the normal behaviors and experiences of kids, including how infants explore their environment through touch (and put almost everything in their mouths), the tantrums of the terrible twos, the connection to parents through reading and story time, and more, as the tiny baby grows into a big kid. Acting out common situations, multicultural parents share their challenges and approaches. Topping the list, of course, is trying to figure out what a crying baby needs—quickly followed by learning how to function as a parent in the face of ongoing fatigue. Depicting various scenarios (including tough ones related to arguments and discipline), the program emphasizes that the challenges and triumphs in child-raising are similar for all. The other titles in the series are Preventing Problems, Encouraging Positive Behavior, and Preparing Your Child for School Success. Highly recommended. Aud: P. (C. Block)
