The Power of Questions For Small Groups


questions less arguing (3)

Why does everything have to be a fight?

It's exhausting, isn't it? From daily chores (taking out the garbage & feeding the dog) to bigger life-defining decisions (friend choice, drinking, school work) most parents dread engaging in power struggles with their children.

It leads to discontent, lack of respect, distanced relationships; and often more nagging from parents. The nagging isn't cultivating wisdom, is it? But how do you stop the constant arguing? 

In this course you will learn the art of asking questions that build internal wisdom and character in your kids, and create a culture of teamwork in your family.

You've got questions? We've got answers!

There are 4 sessions of 25 minutes each that are pre-recorded and available to you on your schedule! This means that you can take it day or night and go through the course at the speed that works for you.

The four sessions are streaming videos with reflection questions interspersed throughout. We highly encourage course participants to leave comments when taking the course but don’t require comments to move to the next session.


In session one, you’ll begin to learn the brain science of arguing that will help everyone during conflict. You will learn about a heart shift that enables you to ask questions that get below the surface of what is happening. 

In session two you’ll learn to grow wisdom for life with a long range view.

In session three you’ll learn a four step process to walk your kids through expectations and then hold them accountable in a kind and firm way.

By the time you’re done with all four sessions you’ll be able to ask a curious question and listen to understand your child. You will learn how to respond and when to say what you need to say. You will catch a vision and experience greater teamwork in your house.

Each household receives their own individual access to the course. Also included with your registration is:

If you would prefer to have workbooks mailed to you, we sell them in a pack of 5 bundle (which includes our Insights and Action Cards AND Questions Word Art).

No! Everything is included with your purchase. If you would prefer to purchase workbooks, in place of the complimentary downloadable workbook, you may do so. Our Power of Questions Welcome Packet includes a set of 5 workbooks, Action and Insight cards. 

While the material in this course is helpful for parents with kids of all ages, it is most beneficial to those with children elementary and above (ages 5 to 17).

Our course content is biblical but not so much so that it would be uncomfortable with someone who doesn't have a Christian faith background. We incorporate scripture throughout our material.

There IS homework, but more "try this at home and report back" rather than actual work/writing in a book.

Immediately! Once you have registered, you have instant access to the material. 

You’ll receive a customized coupon code for your group members to receive their access within 24 hours.

We have pre-made ads as well as a style guide (so you can make your own ads) here

If you need help customizing an ad for your group, just let us know and we'll work with you on that! 

We ask that you register as a group rather than use your individual login. This way you will get all of the extra benefits of a group complete with leader resources. Each family will receive their own access at no extra charge. 

10 households! Each household is one license. We can provide extra licenses (at no charge) if each household member wants their individual access.

Yes! Fill out the contact us form and let us know you are interested in reviewing the course before purchasing. Once you register for your trial, you’ll have access to the video content for 30 days.
