Why a Webinar?

Watch a Webinar Sample: Parenting Styles

It's Convenient! Sessions can be scheduled for a live class experience or recorded so you can watch anytime.

It's Fast! No time to read a parenting book? Get the information you need quickly and concisely through our lectures, videos, diagrams, and powerpoint slides on each webinar. Our webinars are stand-alone training and content heavy. They are NOT advertising vehicles to upsell you to future sessions, books, or seminars.

It's Private! Every webinar includes a free, 15 minute, personal, private, scheduled online question and answer session for each registrant. For scheduled live classes, they are kept small so you have individual attention. You will not be on webcam! Only your voice can be heard by other participants.

It's Economical! For the price of a weeks worth of take-away coffee, you can invest in one of the most important relationships for your happiness. We offer discounts for organizations.

It's Easy! We use the best software so it's as easy as clicking a link to get in for scheduled sessions. All you need is a telephone and computer or just a computer (if you have built in mic and speakers). If you prefer a recording, you will receive it by email immediately for your convenience.

It's Credible! Information provided is based on best parenting practices and research from the Canadian Paediatric Society, Health Canada, Alberta Health Services, and the Public Health Agency of Canada. Webinars are conducted by a Certified Canadian Family Life Educator C.C.F.E. All information is based on the philosophy of mutual respect between parent and child and non-punitive parenting practices.

"I like the idea of a parenting topic via webinars. I can stay home for a lecture on parenting and still able to ask questions. So convenient!" - Sydney L.

"I think your webinars/recordings are such a fantastic idea. I contemplated taking a class, but the times for the classes through any of the organizations in Calgary seemed difficult to manage on top of everything else. A webinar format that I can access at any time is very convenient. Thanks for offering the Terrific Toddlers course in this way." - M.V.

"I wanted to start by saying that your Webinar was very informative. Thank you so much for making me feel not so alone on this journey, for enlightening me about my little girl, and for supporting and reinforcing my parenting style." Heidi M.
