Are You At Your Wits End With Your Child’s Behavior? Read This!

What you need to know about positive parenting solutions

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…

What You Need To Know About Positive Parenting Solutions

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.

To summarize, this program will help you with parenting issues such as:

  • Learn why children really misbehave and how your parenting style may contribute
  • Reduce family stress and keep things organized – how to be a happy, healthy and respectful family
  • Get tools to help deal with whining, helplessness and bad attitude
  • Master how to parent without nagging, yelling and constantly reminding your child(ren)
  • Teach your kids how to resolve sibling rivalry on their own
  • How to get kids to do chores around the house, as well as the do’s and don’t around allowance
  • Find out how to hold your kids accountable through appropriate consequences
  • Gain insight into tools to stop power struggles including tantrums, backtalk, negotiating and being disrespecful

Amy also offers 1:1 coaching calls via phone or video chat.  These are at an additional cost.   For more info click here.

About Positive Parenting Solutions

Free Webinar

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.

Are You Sick Of Screaming, Nagging,And Threatening Your Child? Here is some help!

    I will definitely have to look into this further. My husband and I have four kids, his two are teens and mine are 8 and 11. There is always some drama going on and it is wearing. We are always looking for tools to make things run smoother. Both of us work full time and we are always running here and there…the point mentioned of “reduce family stress” would likely be a big one for us!

      Hi Ilyssa,

      Make sure you take advantage of the free webinar. There are some useful tips in there that might be of help. What I like about the Positive Parenting Solutions Program is that it is great for families with young children as well as those with older children including teenagers.

      You must be really busy with 4 kids! I am sure anything thing would reduce family stress will be a good for everyone!

    Thanks for sharing. Parenting really can be so very difficult especially in today’s society. My first thought is that there are so many outside influences on our children nowadays that it can be hard to combat the negative influencers. I agree that yelling and nagging children constantly just doesn’t work long-term and it seems to actually cause some aggressive behavior after a while. Positive parenting solutions looks like a great program, I will definitely be looking into this. Do you have any resources on co-parenting with an ex? I would definitely love more information on that =)


    1. Tanya (Post author)

      I totally agree Jess, parenting seems to be getting more and more difficult. There are so many outside influences that makes parenting and raising kind, well rounded kids a challenge. Make sure you check out the free webinar for positive parenting solutions. The tips Amy shares are great!

      Unfortunately I don’t have any resources on co-parenting with an ex. That bring a whole other challenge to parenting. This is especially true if your parenting styles differ from one another.

      Sorry I can’t be of more help.

    Hi Tanya,

    Thanks for the information on your post. As a first-time-mom to a VERY rambunctious 18 month old, I sometimes feel like I’m yelling all the time! I’ll definitely be checking out the free positive parenting solutions webinar – thanks for the link!


    P.S. I LOVE the name for your site 🙂

      Hi Celia,

      I remember those days. It is very hard to reason with a toddler. Keep in mind that the positive parenting solutions program is designed for children over the age of 2. But I am sure you will still gain some valuable tips from the webinar.

      Please come back after you watched it (its not too long) to let me know what you thought.

    Hey there, I was just researching homeschooling activities and stumbled onto your page. And glad I did because we also incorporate play into our learning activities which makes the actual learning process much more effective. It is much easier learning about something interesting, and we use this philosophy with our routines and it has worked well. I am glad to see there are other like-minded parents out there. I will be back again, hopefully you will be putting up some homeschooling info for older children? I would love to get your take on that topic as well. Thank you

    1. Tanya (Post author)

      Hi Will,

      Thanks for checking out the site. I am glad that you found it informative. At this point I don’t have any plans on adding homeschooling information for older children as I am not an “expert” in this area. Feel free to contact me if you have any other ideas you would like me to write about. I can’t promise that I will but I enjoy getting suggestions from readers.

    Hello and good day, I have taken the time to read and explore your web site. I found the topics to be exceptional and I can definitely relate to having kids as I have a few of my own. I also have a shy kid or at least he was until he hit 13. At first my wife and I wondered if he would ever grow out of it. Anyway, I am impressed with the set up of your web site. It looks very professional, yet it has a feel of real comfort and you can tell by your writing that you are very educated in your field and really seem to enjoy working with children. As a reader I found myself trusting the information laying out before me. Your About Me page is really well written I felt like I was making a true connection with you.

    I have a niece who will be needing some good advice as she has one newborn and one who is turning 1.5 years of age and I will be passing this web site onto her.

    Thank you for creating this web site I see a wealth of knowledge and help with in it.

      Hi Mike,

      Thanks so much for your comment. It makes me very happy to hear that you have found the site helpful. I take great pride in it! Please pass the information on to your niece. She is more than welcome to leave a comment if she has any questions.
