There are basic concepts to raising a child that every parent should understand, yet few actually do. This course captures these hidden basic concepts and teaches you how to think with them so you can build a very special relationship with your child.

If you don't understand these basics your influence with your child will decrease and the other influences in society become more prominent. Why do so many children end up having such troubled lives? Look around at the influences that will pull your child one way or another. You can show your child a better way to live by the quality of your relationship that you learn how to create in this course.

You will find this a life changing experience. Once you have mastered these basic concepts you will become a master artist of parenting. If you find this course doesn't change not only your life but the life of your children, simply ask for a full refund – no questions asked. There is probably nothing in your life more important than successfully raising your children to be the individuals you hope and dream they will become. Here is that special knowledge that you need to create that relationship?

Bernard Percy has flown over two million miles internationally delivering courses like this. He has authored or co-authored 8 books on parenting and education and he and his wife raised three daughters who are their masterpieces.

When you are done you will wonder how any parent can operate without this knowledge that opens the door to a better home and life for parents and their children. Normally this course is $199 for this internationally recognized parenting enlightener. For a limited time we have made it $29. This price changes on July 1 2015 at 3 PM PST.

Lesson 1 - Activities

It is our purpose in any activity that guides that activity and allows us to shape it to fill that purpose. Like a captain at sea if we have not defined clearly where we are going then we will undoubtedly be left adrift and likely crushed upon the rocks of a distant shore.

Lesson 2 - Your Purpose as a Parent

Lesson 2 - Activities

We treat children so differently that we can lose site of the fact that a child is a person and they react in the same way that an adult reacts is many ways. Here you will learn to think in terms of "how would I react if I were treated in the same way that I am treating my child".

Lesson 3 - Activities

Everyone has some personality that is unique to them. We all have talents and areas where we are not so talented. Some are adventurous, some like science and some prefer music. How do we find that person that is our child? How do we let them grow and be who they are because only by answering this will we find a way to bring that that special person that is truelly them.

Fundamental Basics to Create True Understanding Between Parent and Child
6 Lectures 41:48

True communication is not so easy to create but is the very glue that builds and holds together any relationship. Learn how to develop this with your child and with this communication you can only then be the influence in their lives that is needed to bring out the best in them.

Lesson 5 - Creating true communication with your child

Lesson 5 - Activities

It is true that we all will have times where we have to talk to our children about what they have done wrong, but what about when they have done something right. It is a fact that focusing on these right things and telling them when they are right will lead to more of the right and less of the wrong. Just as a plant needs fertilizer your children need to grow in the confidence and strength that comes from focusing on the right.

Lesson 6 - Focus on the right, not the wrong

Lesson 6 - Activities

Getting to truly know your child will become the foundation to a better life for your entire family. How does the world look to your child? Without understanding this you will never really have the best relationship possible between child and parent.

How to Create True Cooperation and Agreement With Your Child

Good control is not simply ordering the child around and having them comply because of threat of punishment. It is gaining a mutual agreement to do those things that you as a parent need to have happen. How do you communicate in such a way as to gain true agreement? That is good control.

Bernard Percy is an educator, author, international speaker on parenting and relationships and father of what he proudly says “Are the three best children on planet earth!" (and he hopes you disagree with him as you know you have the best children).

Bernard has been a teacher in the New York City and Los Angeles public school systems, the co-founder and editor in chief of a national award winning magazine on education, and has traveled to over 30 countries delivering seminars and consultations to thousands of children, parents and educators to help them understand how to bring out the best in your children.


The following comment from a parent in Australia is typical of the responses he receives from his presentations and consultations:

Bernard Percy is a revelation! A teacher, childhood educator and parent 'enlightener" he is a big man, with a very big heart. He does not speak about raising kids from some abstract academic point of view. You'll find ... heart warming stories from a man who is clearly loved and adored by his own children... you'll find yourself going “of course" again and again as you listen to him speak, for the answers he unveils to “common childhood problems" are so obvious, you wonder why you didn't think of them yourself. But when you are busy with work and family issues, it is easy to forget the fundamentals. Bernard brings them back to you with memorable ease. A few hours spent with him is worth a lifetime of experience. If you get a chance to see him, cancel everything and take it, you and your kids will not regret it!"
