All parents need a little advise and directive occasionally. This is a course that covers the very basics of parenting and allows parents to come up with their own balance to parenting based on the concepts that are learned. This is an introductory course to parenting, which is instructed in a simple lecture format that average parents and newcomers to parenting can comprehend and cover in a short period of time.

The parenting styles that will be covered in this course are based on research by clinical and developmental psychologist, Diana Baumrind, currently at the Institute of Human Development, University of California, Berkeley. This course is also a good source for students interested in brushing up on the general parenting styles that she identified.

This is a self paced course that anyone can fit into their busy schedule (as parents often juggle a lot). The course materials contain 14 lectures, which include an introductory lecture, 6 lectures on the traditional parenting styles, lectures on effective parenting, fostering self esteem, positive discipline, and a conclusion.

Take this course to quickly identify parenting styles, including positive guidance techniques that help children develop positive self-concepts, self-management, and responsibility.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for parents with children of any age and anyone, including students, who wants to learn or brush up on basic parenting styles.

Educational Counselor & Personal Enrichment Coach

I have been rejuvenating minds and enriching lives for over a decade. I speak 5 different languages and having walked personally transformative world wonders such as the Great Wall of China and Mayan Pyramids, I am an enlightened world traveler of 22 countries thus far. My educational accomplishments include a BA in Psychology and BS in Social Relations followed by Masters in Marriage & Family Therapy from the University of Southern California.

I have 14 years of experience in educational counseling and mental health. My career started as a Social Worker providing directive to foster parents and coordinating treatment plans for children in foster homes and then in outpatient clinical services providing therapy. I have worked in such settings as the Child Life Unit of the Oncology Department at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital. Invigorating the minds of terminally ill children is truly a privileged opportunity. Having counseled children and teenagers in both school settings, outpatient therapy, and as part of Child Protective Services, guiding youth to become successful individuals was my calling and I continued as a counselor in the public school system for 10 years. Along with guidance and cognitive behavioral counseling services, I have implemented parent education programs, trainings, and behavioral intervention programs in the public schools. It is my belief that all students are able to learn given a positive learning environment that enhances exploration and student confidence.

About 2 years ago I started focusing more on quality of family life and working towards private practice and life enrichment coaching services. I believe in living authentically and a rich life. I'm passionate about helping others to find fulfillment, and just as I believe all students are able to succeed in a positive learning environment, I also believe that anyone can bring to life their wildest dreams. My mission is to offer my cultural experiences, trainings, introspection and innate qualities in entirety to help create mindfulness and ideal lifestyles.
