The #1 Skills-Building Parent Education Program in the World

Built on Dr. Jayne A. Major's Ph.D. research at UCLA on how to teach parents real skills, as opposed to just "tips" or "knowledge" (i.e. knowing how to ride a bicycle, without having actually done it :O).


Many agencies have been enrolling new employees in our very comprehensive professional training programs continuously for more than 20 years, letting them earn the nationally and internationally recognized CBPI (Certified Breakthrough Parenting® Instructor) credentials. 


Why would they do that? Because they saw that their Graduates were ready to teach parents in this program that teaches all age levels of both parents and children
at a high professional level immediately after Graduation.

why work with us?

Used across the U.S., Canada, and 23 more countries!

More than 30,000 hours of development and testing

This program is designed for continuous enrollment. This means that you can have a few parents in your first class, have them be amazed and tell their neighbors and friends, who will  then call you to ask when they can start.


With Breakthrough Parenting, you can just tell them to come to your next weekly session and the following nine, because you continue with Lesson 1 immediately after Lesson 10, and the program is designed to allow parents to start anytime. This is a major enrollment booster.

Most comprehensive parenting program

We put more than 30,000 hours of work into making this program crystal clear, which has been much appreciated by students in the program (most enrollees come by referral from previous graduates!). 

 

Many graduates have described this program as “life changing” and “the clearest program they had ever seen.”

 

The program is completely self-standing, so no particular credentials are required to enroll in this program. Over the last 20 years of teaching instructors, we have had graduates with MFT, LCSW, PsyD, EdD, MD, RN, MA, BA, AA backgrounds, school teachers of all levels, and more.


The only thing we cannot teach you is how to feel comfortable in front of a group of people. If you can handle that, we will give you everything else you need to be successful.

Works with parents of all educational levels

Our focus has always been on teaching instructors how to give parents real skills that work also when the parents are stressed out or tired

 

This is very different from just giving parents hundreds or thousands of tips to memorize (the “numerous tips” tend to be forgotten when they are most needed, or the parent remembers the tips but is unable to connect them with their unique situation).

 

With “skills” instead, you are able to help them actually do in class what they will then be able to do at home (because they have “already done it” so it is like “muscle memory” that doesn’t rely on the parent being rested, ready and stress free).

about us

Help parents move their families from ​everyday
struggle to cooperation

Many parents told us why they decided to take a Breakthrough Parenting class after they had already gone through other comprehensive parenting programs.

 

The reason they did this? They were desperate to learn methods that work with today’s children.  

 

When they tried the techniques they learned in other parenting programs, their children said, Mom! Dad! Now you’re doing that parenting thing again!,” and laughed at them. 

 

That will never happen with what is taught in Breakthrough Parenting, because no manipulative methods are used.

 

Manipulative methods worked well in the 1970s, but today’s children become “street smart” at a younger age from seeing a lot of manipulation on TV and in movies. 

 

We instead teach methods that make the children want to take responsibility for what they do, with appreciation for their parents’ guidance(!)

We have had great satisfaction from past graduates of this professional training program for 15 years. Many agencies have even been continuously enrolling new staff in this program for 10+ years, after seeing how their staff was able to provide parenting classes at a professional level immediately after graduation.

testimonials

Check what our clients say about us

The essence and quality of your program were far more advanced than all the courses I had either in psychology or counseling. It looked as if you put all the theories of counseling, therapy, parenting, humanities and philosophy in an easy to understand formula for different levels of comprehension.

Jilla O. Fahimian, LCSW

DCFS, Los Angeles County

Breakthrough Parenting is the most powerful personal development course I have ever worked with. It opened numerous doors to healing for our clients.

Mary Case, LCSW

ANTELOPE VALLEY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE COUNCIL, CA

I highly recommend the Breakthrough Parenting program. It is there that parents learn to create a blueprint for raising emotionally healthy children. Most parents only know how to raise children by what was done in their own families. Much more is now known about how to promote psychologically healthy children, and parents need to learn these advanced methods.
