Are you at your wits end trying to deal with your child’s behavior? Then keep reading and I will share my thoughts with you about a program called Positive Parenting Solutions.
But, I need to be honest with you, I am not a paying member of this program. I did watch the free webinar and spent quiet some time of the Positive Parenting Solutions website. So these are my opinions, based on my own research as well as talking to other parents who have participated in the program.
I have not purchased this program because my background is in child development which includes behavior management strategies for children. My children are now 6.5 and 8 and we have things under control regarding their behavior (for the most part). However, if things change when they get older and I ever feel like I could use some help, I will be purchasing this program. Unless I decide to write and publish my own first…

Amy McCready – Founder of Positive Parenting Solutions
Amy McCready founded Positive Parenting Solutions over 10 years ago. Amy is a mother and parenting educator who realized that she was a parent who was always yelling and battling with her kids. Amy decided that she did not want to parent this way. Therefore, she took several parenting courses focusing on Adlerian Psychology and positive discipline. These courses helped her develop her own program which evolved to become Positive Parenting Solutions.
What Is Taught In The Program?
The whole premise of the program is to parent with positivity and respect. Instead of yelling and constantly battling with your child, Amy teaches parents how to change their own attitudes and behavior. This program is aimed at parents whose children are between the ages of 2 to teens. It is a large age range, but the tips and tricks that are taught are valuable for a child anywhere in this age group. Each strategy can be tweaked to be appropriate for the age of your child.
The classes are offered online at your convenience. You simply log into your account and watch whichever lesson you would like, access is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Amy also offers members Question and Answer sessions during the week and on weekends. In addition there is a members only Facebook page as well as live webinars.

How Much Does Positive Parenting Solutions Cost?
There are 3 levels to Positive Parenting Solutions (Gold, Silver, Bronze). Each level contains the following:
I highly recommend that you watch the Positive Parenting Solutions FREE webinar. Amy provides some great advice that you can put into action right away! You will also learn information such as the fact that it is best to only use “consequences” with your child in 10-15% off all “misbehaving” situations. I know that for many parents “consequences” are the go to form of punishment when their child is misbehaving. Therefore, this technique is probably used much more than only 10-15% of the time.
Final Thoughts About Positive Parenting Solutions.
In addition to the free webinar, there is also a comprehensive blog on the website with very valuable information that can help you get started on the track of positive parenting. Make sure to look at it! From my research and speaking with others, I strongly believe that this program can be of help to many families.
