"The Parent Coach Plan is the most complete gathering of practical child behavior and discipline resources I've ever seen. Full of lists, tips, doable ideas, and valuable info, I highly recommend Chris Theisen's work as a fantastic tool for parents who want to build the best possible relationship with their child -- from toddlers all the way up through the teen years."

"Over my many years as a school social worker I have seen any number of parenting programs. By far I truly like this one above the others. It is visual, streamlined, and straightforward. I am very excited about putting it into use. "

"We had a tough time this summer with a death in the family and other situations - our son was getting out of control (6 years old). This program gave him accountability to make the choice of how he would act - and that would result in rewards or restrictions. We love that it has reduced 90% of the yelling that we did! Its so much more peaceful at our house as we have rules - he loses points, he loses "fun" - he earns points, he earns fun. Its all on him! What a relief for us as parents! Its just the structure we needed to create boundaries and a positive family environment. Ahh...thank you!"

"I am a newly single parent due to the sudden death of my husband 4 months ago. I have two boys ages 12 and 14 and through the pain of adjusting to this new way of life this couldn't have come at a better time. I need all the help and resources I can find and this has given me ALL, and then some, of the tools and tips needed to get through all of this. My mind is going a million miles a minute in a million different directions and this offers tips with care and compassion and in a perfect way to settle my mind and allow me to focus on what is important. And what is important is being the best mom, and the best person I can be and thanks to the Parent Coach Plan this has become a much easier task. Thank You from the bottom of my heart."

Thank you! We've been using your program for three weeks now. We are already seeing results. The ripple effect has been amazing too! I just had a meeting with my son's school. They wondered what had been switched in him because he's improving there too!!!! I can't thank you enough.

"The Parent Coach Plan is AWESOME! My son was being discharged from the hospital and we needed to put an action plan in place so we did not fall into the same inconsistent patterns that we now knew weren't working. When I found the website I was so excited because it mimicked the plan he was now used to at the hospital and had the tools to help us and gave us a place to start! Thank you!"

"This is a wonderful program, easy to understand and implement. Everyone with a difficult child with behavior problems will find everything so useful. I loved the coping skills, I've taught the self-soothing behaviors to my child and she seems better able to control her emotions now, screams at me less. I love this program."
