Free Parenting Webinar!

I’m so excited to tell you that I’ll be hosting another parenting Webinar with well-known parenting expert Amy McCready.

Amy is a regular on The Today Show and has appeared on Rachael Ray, CNN, MSNBC, in The New York Times and more. I’ve found her ideas and tools so ridiculously practical that I’ve tried to host a webinar with her each semester. I love interacting with you all (via text chat) while Amy teaches you (live via video feed) and answers your questions.

This parenting Webinar is 100% free. She’ll take just about 5 minutes in her presentation to mention her online classes (and you’ll get a coupon code then, if you’re interested) but the other 55 minutes will be solid teaching and Q&A.

The topic will be “Getting Kids to Listen Without Nagging, Reminding or Yelling.”

Sounds great doesn’t it?!

Since past webinars we’ve hosted have filled up VERY quickly (there are only 100 spots now 400 spots (!) available for each webinar), this time we’re hosting two:

Wednesday, October 5th at 2pm EST

Wednesday, October 5th at 9pm EST

If you’d like to join us for the webinar, just register here.

Hope to see you on the 5th!

(I want to make a clarification from the outset that Amy’s parenting classes are not a Bible based curriculum. They’re based on science, psychology and experience. That being said, I’ve learned a lot from her and I’m confident you will too.)

Comments

  1. LOVE her!! thanks for this opportunity – I’m signed up for some of her practical non-bible based insight-smile!

    BLessings!

  2. This parenting webinar seems so good because it’s free and I haven’t tried joining this before. This is really an opportunity to be able to know more about the parenting aspects. I know that this will really give insights for nurturing our kids. Thank you so much!

  3. is there going to be a transcript or a recap available? I live in an area where we have limited internet, and I wouldn’t be able to view the whole seminar.

  4. I invited some friends over to watch – I’ve got a group of @5 that are going to enjoy it together – thanks, Kat. I am looking forward to the evening :)

  5. Awesome! I hope I can catch this today! (Wed’s are busy days)

    Thanks for doing this! It’s so needed by so many parents! (myself included!)

  6. I’m pretty sure I already registered, how do I “get in” the webinar?

    • If you registered for the 2pm one, you should have gotten an email with the registration link. If you registered for the evening one, you should get an email in a couple of hours. You might double check your email to make sure you got your original confirmation message.

    I signed up for the 2pm one and have not gotten any emails with the registration link. Help! I even tried to re-register, and it said it would re-send the link, but I got nothing.
    Shaunna :)

  8. Shaunna Upgren says:

    Still didn’t get it, but registered with a different email address, and got it. :) So, never mind the above comment.

  9. Stink. I didn’t ever get my email. Oh well. My kids are pretty good, but it is always good to learn. :)

    Hi, Kat! My husband and I just got off the webinar… while my MIL was downstairs trying (not very successfully) to put three kids to bed…! Concrete evidence that we need this information! We found it very informative and useful. We are thinking that there are specific ways that we can start addressing the issues we have. Thank you so much for hosting this! I was wondering – are you a member of PPS online? $180 is a pretty big chunk of money for us to put down all at once. I hate to pass up a good deal but I also have a hard time making quick decisions. Any opinion you have is appreciated!

    • I am wondering about spending the money too..I didn’t quite undertand about the ‘upgrade’ to the next level. Can someone explain?

    • Lisa,
      It definitely is a big chunk of change. Amy gave me a complimentary membership last year, but my year is now almost up and even though I’m sure I could ask her for another year, I plan to buy it because it’s been THAT helpful.

      I have about 10 half read parenting books. At $15 each, that’s just about how much the course costs. For me, the format is SO much easier for me to work through than a regular parenting book. Sometimes, after a hard day with the kids, I just like to listen to one of the sessions to give my focus for the next day. I’m much more inspired by instruction that I see, hear AND read than by a book.

      If either of you is like me in that sense, it’s absolutely worth it. She also has a free 14 day trial (I think) so that you can see if the format works for you all. http://www.positiveparentingsolutions.com/

      So, in short, for me – it’s definitely been worth it. If it sounds good to you, you might try the 14 day Session 1 trial and then if you do buy the course, you always have 30 days for a refund if it’s not what you’d thought it would be.

      I hope that helps! I know it’s a tough choice to make.

  11. I have a question about the webinar too. IT was very good…obviously not biblical…maybe? Do you think by following these principles (ideas) we are still training our kids biblically…just asking! They sure made sense, it is just a little confusing to other things I have read…anyone else have a comment?

    • Julie,
      No, it’s not Bible based. I’ve found most of the concepts to blend quite nicely with raising my kids Biblically. There are some things we do differently than Amy recommends, but it’s almost like these tools *allow* me to invest more time in teaching them about God’s Word and investing in them spiritually because I’m not so caught up in how to deal with the little misbehaviors along the way.

      As with any parenting training, we need to filter it through prayer, “keep the meat and spit out the bones.” :)

      • Thanks Kat! So do you think her distinction between consequences and punishment is something Christians should follow? I really LOVED her ideas!

  12. Sorry to write AGAIN about my thoughts. I woke up this morning with ‘thinking I heard’ someone either say in the chat last night or Amy say…”You do know what it says in Hebrews about discipline correct?” After thinking about it, I am wondering if it was the Holy Spirit speaking to me. Do you recall any discussion about the book of Hebrews last night?
    Anyways.. I did a search this morning “Hebrews and discipline”. Hebrews 12:11 popped up: “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”
    Of course I have read this verse before, could this apply to the ‘positive parenting’ methods? I mean, the consequences she is suggesting seem very productive and definately positive. Am I just being overly sensitive…and analyzing too much or does this method overlook and perhaps ignore what Christian parents need to be teaching their kids?

  13. Please don’t be offended by my questions. I thank you for hosting this event, I am just wanting to dialog with someone about this!!
    Ultimately, I am bringing this to the Father, but am interested in hearing others thoughts! :)

  14. For the record, we don’t spank our kids (have only maybe 3 times total) for repeated offences. We do time outs however…

    I ‘suppose’ even consequences that are ‘discussed ahead of time’ and follow the 5 ‘r’s are ‘unpleasant’ but they are still fair right?

    • Julie,
      Sorry for the late reply! Sick hubby and hosting a baby shower meant little computer time this weekend.

      I don’t remember anyone mentioning Hebrews, but the chat went so quickly, I could very well have just missed it. That being said I don’t think that either consequences or punishment are very pleasant. I think the ultimate difference between the two is the heart behind it. Are we trying to punish for wrongdoing just for the sake of punishing (which is what Amy steers parents away from) or are we trying to truly train them to do right.

      Sometimes they typical methods of punishment are used a lot simply because they’re easier. I’m totally guilty of that. But I think our kids can learn more from the experience if we really use it as a training opportunity.

      Does that make sense? Help at all? I’m happy to chat about it with you and next time I’ll reply a lot faster! :)

  15. Hi again Kat,

    Thanks for your response! I actually just ordered her book. Do you have her book? I am looking for some practical ideas. I actually told myself awhile ago that I wouldn’t buy any more parenting books!! But I think her ideas are good! What other parenting books do you like? It is refreshing to connect with other Moms who don’t believe parenting is a one side fit! Are you a homeschooler by any chance?
