Kids feel confused, and even emotionally unsafe, because they never know what to expect. And when their brains feel unsafe, they rarely learn what you want them to learn.

Who are the instructors?
Jim and Lynne Jackson, co-founders of Connected Families, have taught this easy-to-remember framework to thousands of parents in live workshops and private coaching since 1993.
This powerful framework focuses on four key messages and is taught throughout eight sessions.
When you’ve completed the course, you will join thousands of parents who have benefitted from the same transformational content.
Think back. Is this how you envisioned parenting?
Do you remember what you thought parenting would be like? Full of laughter, fun and cute memory-making moments? Cuddles? Deep biblical discussions?
And yet, here you are, struggling with disobedience, anger, frustrations, and disappointment.
This isn't how you envisioned Christian parenting or discipline.
Get unstuck. Connect to your child's heart during discipline.
God is after your child's heart, and God is using YOU to get there.
But so many parenting good intentions backfire. They lead to angry, frustrated, or discouraged kids.
Since God is using you to woo your child's heart, then connecting to that heart is at the center of all your parenting—including discipline.
