Whether you’re the parent of a toddler or a teenager, you know that parenting can be challenging – even overwhelming at times. Unfortunately, children don’t come with an instruction manual. And, being a parent doesn’t always mean that you automatically or instinctively know what to do.


Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) can help you optimise your parenting skills.


P.E.T. is a unique and fun parenting course created by award-winning psychologist Dr Thomas Gordon, a three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee.


Our goal is to teach you very practical communication and conflict resolution skills to help you create more happy and satisfying relationships with your children.


How to talk to your children so that they will listen to you.

How to listen to your children so they feel genuinely understood.

How to resolve conflicts, sibling rivalry, and problems in your family so that no one loses and problems stay solved.

How to troubleshoot family problems and know which skills to use to solve them.

How to deal with value collisions.


Your children will learn self-discipline and an inner sense of personal responsibility.

You will learn how to work with each other instead of against each other.

You’ll experience fewer angry outbursts and more problem-solving.

Everyone van participate in rule-setting so all will feel motivated to comply with the rules.

There are many different parenting programmes out there in the world. How do you decide which one is right for you?  Here is a comparison of the most well-known programmes out there – we hope you find it helpful. 


If P.E.T. sounds like the right programme for you, then please drop me a message via our contact us form or send an email to and I will put you in touch with a certified instructor near you.
