"Best thing I've ever done for myself."
I learned so much about myself. It was the best thing I've ever done for myself and my family.
Maria Pilerio (Mom of 8 Kids)
How can I be sure I am raising a kind, respectful, responsible, and independent child?
I wish I could yell less, slow down, step back and BREATHE rather than jump into the middle of chaos.
I want to become more present and aware so that I can RESPOND to my child instead of reacting from fear and stress.
I want to stop being ruled by my inner critic and finally break the cycle of conflict and negativity in my home.
The truth is - YOU are the only expert on your child. Only you can decide what is best for your child in each moment - if you learn to listen to the right messages.
You'll spend more time connecting with your kids after you learn the SIX critical elements necessary for creating peaceful solutions to your family challenges.
If you are tired of using a million tricks (that never feel good) to get your kids to listen, this series will lay a solid foundation for you to increase your self-awareness and maintain an open heart as you learn tools for peaceful interaction. Change your relationships, not just with your kids, but with everyone in your life.
"Real-world steps that make life easier."
Thank goodness I found Lori Petro! She’s helped make me a better parent and person. I feel more connected to my 5-year-old son now. I now have the tools to have more empathy and understanding of my son. She gives specific, real-world steps and guidance that will make life easier. When I apply what I’ve learned, magically, the challenging behavior has changed. I’m eternally grateful to Lori and all she’s shared with me.

"Even though my son is now 16, it was so valuable."
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this programme, on two levels, as a scientist and a mum of a 16-year-old. I loved how Lori intertwines the science of the brain, of emotions with conscious parenting. To me even though my son is now 16, it was so valuable to listen to her knowledge on this topic, and most of all, how she really shares her heart with the listeners. Thank you, Lori. Your work is a precious gift to the world.

How to be less controlling without being permissive.
How to maintain a calm and consistent presence - even when your kids can't!
How to break free of painful patterns and old habits of reacting.
How to set healthy boundaries and create win-win situations for you and your child.
How to gain the cooperation you are looking for without nagging.
ONE TOOL that is way more effective than ANY "logical consequence" or 1-2-3 training technique.
"I absolutely loved this class!"
I absolutely loved this class. I learned so much just from the first session. It has already changed my life! Love you for all you do!

MODULE 1: Make the Shift
You know the Albert Einstein quote, "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." This couldn't be more true.
First, you'll look at long-held beliefs about children parenting, separate the myths from the facts (aka, all the noise from family, conflicting advice, and FB memes), and then take 2 steps.
1. Redefine how YOU want to show up as a parent.
2. Investigate what's holding you back and why.
Then, you'll move forward - goals in hand - with a perspective that brings you closer to your kids instead of pushing them away!
MODULE 2: Building Authentic Relationships
You already have a secret weapon in your pocket. You're struggling because you have no idea what it is or how to use it.
This lesson will get you out of your own way, so you can be a partner in helping your kids meet expectations.
You'll learn precisely what you need to handle behavior challenges and build influence with your kids.
MODULE 3: Understanding Child Development
It's so hard to be empathetic and build skills when you think your children are purposely defying you. Knowing what's happening in the brain is the solution to feeling helpless and at the mercy of the little people.
The benefits: Children raised in emotionally intelligent homes grow to be kind, empathetic, and responsible. That's not just good for families - that's good for everyone!
I want my kid to grow up with people like that! Don't you?
MODULE 4: Conscious Communication Strategies
Here is my personal favorite and the most transformative tool EVER! I'm sharing a breakthrough new way for you to change how you speak to your kids.
"I feel a hundred times better!"
Lori Petro, you are truly amazing! What a fabulous Q&A call. I feel a hundred times better and needed to hear every word you had to say. My heart thanks you for your compassion. I'm glad to be a part of this class and appreciate your work.
Lavanda Loncharich, Texas
MODULE 5: Managing Your Stress & Anger
If you're like many parents, there is ONE thing that you probably have struggled with - anger. But anger is a healthy emotion, and we don't want to eliminate our ability to feel and process anger!
I'll give you a checklist of tools that will show you how to recognize unhealthy emotional states, grow your skills, and expand your tolerance for stress and tension, so you can motivate your kids instead of relying on fear and threats.
MODULE 6: Listening with Your Heart
You might hear a lot of people advising you to "use empathy" to end the power struggles. If only it were that easy. I'll show you what needs to happen first (and the step that everyone overlooks)!
You will sigh in relief when you learn to communicate your requests and stop pushing against an inflexible child.
MODULE 7: Setting Limits with Compassion
Some people will try to convince you, "If you are just a little more firm with the consequences, then kids will listen."
Nope. But I've got a recipe for building real life-skills like self-regulation and self-awareness that is 100x more effective than any punishment or reward.
MODULE 8: Tools for Peaceful Conflict Resolutions
Everyone one of these modules develops YOUR skills as much as your children's, but this one is critical.
You'll finish this program with the insight, confidence, and knowledge to create massive shifts in negative behavior patterns - including your own!
However, if you have the tools to manage your emotions, you can protect yourself from unavoidable stress.
Learn to handle whatever comes your way - including your child's:
This benefits you, but the impact on your child is more than EXTRAORDINARY.
By ending the cycle of arguing, nagging, and changing the way you ASK for what you need to happen, you set your child up to WANT to listen and follow your lead.
You can dramatically impact the willingness of your child to complete tasks and contribute to others and reduce the level of negativity in your home - if you follow the framework I've laid out for you in this course.
The bonus for your children? You teach them the coping skills they need to navigate life.

"Thank you for your work. You are amazing"
I wanted to tell you that... I get it!! Lori, I get it now. I have the tools to help my son navigate negative moments with others and do it in such a way that makes sense to him and me - and the other child or adult without me feeling stupid. Thank you. Thank you for your work. You are amazing.

"We are all so much happier!"
Working with Lori Petro in person has been an absolute gift from God! The monthly member support calls are invaluable!

How do I take this course? Are there live classes to attend?
This course is completely self-paced and available on-demand for one year from the date of your purchase. We hold live monthly Q&A support sessions, and you can connect with us live in our private Facebook group and special live webinars held throughout the year.
How do I access the materials?
When you log into our virtual classroom, you can access all of your course recordings, workbooks, and any bonus materials from the dashboard of your student panel.
The beauty of this program is that you can review the recorded lessons at your convenience. The system will track your progress to keep you on-track.
What if I don’t have time to complete the course?
With the convenience of recorded lessons and one full year of access, you have the ability to "take this course home with you" and move through it at your own pace.
And, when you look at the amount of time that you spend arguing, nagging, threatening and bargaining with your kids, you have to decide if that is a pattern that you want to – or should – continue.
Family peace is not outside your reach and a being part of a community like this is a game-changer for many families.They see dramatic changes in the level of cooperation and connection that they feel with their kids after implementing what they learn.
If you're unsure if this program is right for you, ask yourself three questions –
Am I relying on short-term, punitive discipline? Is it worth the risk to my relationship/influence? Is my family worth the time and investment of learning a new way?
If you answer YES! to any of the above, you're in the right place!
Will I have access to Lori to ask questions?
I am very active in our private Facebook Group (for clients only) and if you attend one of my Q&A's, you'll find me hosting often. While I can't respond personally to emailed questions, I try to answer most if not all on our calls. You'll also get to connect with our passionate and caring parent educators who also host and are active in our online groups.
"Worth every penny you will spend."
Lori is a wealth of knowledge and a true professional in her field. She is worth every penny you will spend on this series. If you are willing to be open and put into practice the things she teaches, you will, without a doubt, have no regrets.
Suzanne Teter, Pennsylvania
Is this class only for parents? What about educators, therapists, nannies, and grandparents?
While the format speaks to "parents" the series is also helpful for educators, therapists, child-care workers and anyone who works with children. It has been used to train daycare staff, and in professional development presentations for therapists and educators. Regardless of whether you are a parent or provider, if you want to reduce anger, build your tolerance, let go of old patterns and false beliefs, and communicate compassionately and consciously - this class is your ticket to learn how. If you want to train your team or are looking for group rates and licensing, please email me.
Is the course for young children or will it apply to teens?
The course content serves as a framework you can use to build more peace and cooperation in your home no matter what ages your children are.
This class uses examples and stories of parents with kids of all ages and it is not geared to any specific age group.
Our relationship has the most influence over our children's behavior and it's never too early or too late to implement changes in the way you communicate with your kids.
We do not discuss baby routines, of focus on specific parent duties such as sleep or feeding, but the communication tools and self-growth you will learn in the classes apply to family life situations. They are appropriate for parents of toddlers to teens because the process of building relationships and speaking compassionately is the same – no matter what age we are.
Is this another parenting course that gives me a bunch of theory but doesn't really tell me how to apply it to my situation?
This program takes you through 40-Days of Daily Exercises and it is full of concrete tools, and exercises. There is a lot of practice but not a lot of fluff. You need tools, and we're all short on time, which is why each daily class is only 15-20 min. This series is for the parent or caregiver who needs an overhaul in their thinking and behaving. If you’re concerned about not understanding how to apply the strategies that you’ll learn in the course, then be sure to attend our monthly Q&A Support calls.
What is the difference between the Conscious Communication Course and the Peaceful Solutions Course?
The main difference is that Conscious Communication is a 3 lesson course on how to change the way we speak. It specifically focuses on how to implement conscious communication with every day parenting routines.
Peaceful Solutions is an 8-lesson, 40-Day, comprehensive program, which covers the conscious parenting transformation from the beginning and talks about your past, breaking with your family expectations, child development, setting boundaries, empathy and building emotional intelligence.
Here is a comparison chart.
"The audios are brilliant."
Wow, the mp3s are really gifts that keep on giving. They are brilliant. Yesterday really blew my mind. Understanding the science behind it makes me able to feel even more compassion for where children are. It is such a relief to find your work and this whole approach. I really resonate with it and deeply want to build a solid relationship of good communication with my daughter. I am ecstatic to find this now. Mahalo a nui loa.
Hina Knebuhl, Hawaii
"I have enjoyed the classes so much."
I have enjoyed the classes so much. Yesterday I was triggered and caught myself and began to investigate, found the needs and instead of beating myself up for them - my heart broke open and sobbing commenced. I have some hardened ideas beginning to soften. Thank you!
