The Top Ten Unique Traits

of The Parents Toolshop

ย 

The Parents Toolshop: The Universal Blueprint for Building a Healthy Family book is:

ย 

  1. Comprehensive. Parents usually have to read dozens of books to find all the information they need for an effective parenting plan. The author of The Parents Toolshop has done all the research for parents, making it a one-stop resource that equals dozens of books combined. This saves parents years of research and hundreds of dollars on resources.

Of all the books and magazines I’ve devoured regarding parenting skills, this one put them all to shame. I learned more from this book than I could have learned from one hundred put together. โ€“ โ€“ Debbie Klein

  1. Accurate, instead of fostering myths or giving inaccurate information. The author spent over ten years researching parenting resources, pulling out only the best, most reliable advice. Parents learn the basics of effective parenting principles so they can recognize inaccurate advice in other resources and avoid falling into common pitfalls that undo our efforts or start new problems.(Sign up for a F*R*E*E e-course and get a BONUS REPORT called โ€œParenting Myths & Truthsโ€ go to: http://www.parentstoolshop.com/7ecourse/)

I’m really excited about sharing this information with other parents at my church. Your ideas are consistent with other resources I’m familiar with, but there are some things in their books I disagree with and I get so frustrated picking and choosing and screening them. It is so nice to finally find a resource that has done that for me. I can completely trust that it is comprehensive and accurate. โ€“ โ€“ Marla Hurst, parent, Adult Education teacher

  1. Organized, instead of randomly presenting helpful ideas. The Parentโ€™s Toolshopยฎ (and other Universal Blueprintโ„ข resources)teaches a logical step-by-step plan for choosing the most helpful response to any situation and presenting it effectively. This helps parents organize what theyโ€™ve learned into a useful format they can easily remember and use. When a crisis strikes, it can take just a matter of seconds for parents to respond effectively.

I especially like the Universal Blueprintโ„ข formula. It gives me a tangible, visual way to organize all that I learned and use the ‘tools’ to their full potential. My professional training uses similar teaching methods, so it’s great to learn about parenting using the same process. Parenting is never easy, but this book makes it easy to understand. โ€“ โ€“ Mike Lowery

  1. Universally applicable, instead of discussing only one topic, skill, developmental stage, or type of relationship. The Universal Blueprintโ„ข โ€œParenting-Success Formulaโ€ and its tools are useful in any relationship โ€” with children of any age and even in adult relationships. Parents report that the more they use the skills in all their relationships, the more their relationships improve, in every area of their lives!

I like The Parent’s Toolshop because it focuses more on the positive aspects of parent-child interaction as opposed to discipline and punishment; also because it is practical in its approach rather than theoretical. In addition, there are a lot of devices for remember the proper steps to take, so parents can really make the method “theirs.” โ€“ โ€“ Bryelle Broome, LSW, LPC, Parent Involvement Coordinator, DPS Head Start Program

โ€œIn the late 60’s, I taught P.E.T. for several years and then taught S.T.E.P. for another fifteen years. If The Parent’s Toolshop had been around back then, I would have definitely chosen it above those other curricula. I like the way the toolsets are put together and the whole process of putting it into categories. The logical sequence makes it so easy to use. I am so impressed with this program, I am requiring all of our therapists to take the training. I also want several of them to become certified Toolshop Tour Guides, so we can provide this valuable program. I plan to keep several copies of the book in the office, so we can provide them to the parents we serve.โ€ โ€“ โ€“ Millie McCarty, M.A., L.P.C., President & Executive Director, Lighthouse Counseling Inc.

Now that my son is almost eighteen and I see what a wonderful young man he is, I realize parenting is not all โ€œluck.โ€ I truly believe that 90% is because of the concepts I learned from you, when he was only three โ€” and I’ll be forever grateful to you for that. I had no role model for parenting to look back on. I learned healthy parenting from YOU, and it’s given me the most valuable thing in my life, a healthy, close relationship with my son. โ€“ โ€“ Eva Polichany
