What You’ll Learn

Ever felt like you’re wingin‘ it as a parent? If so, your child has probably sensed this and has virtually taken over control of the household. If this sounds familiar, this course is for you. We help parents build positive, constructive relationships with their children. You’ll discover that when you become more purposeful with your interactions, it gives you the calmness and confidence to develop and deploy your parenting skills.

In this module, you’ll meet Mike and get the overview and encouragement you need to get yourself in the right mindset for the remainder of the course.

In this critical module, you’ll learn the three behavioral concepts that serve as the foundation for all the insights and strategies you’ll receive in the remainder of the course.

It’s time to get “hands on” in this module. Together we’ll have some fun with purposeful ways to foster positive behaviors and learn what to do when inappropriate behaviors occur.

As well as what to do, the effective parent knows what not to do. In this module, you’ll learn practical and simple things you should avoid doing when your child behaves both inappropriately and appropriately.

In this module, you’ll learn five practical strategies that support cooperation, positive interactions, social skill development, and independence – qualities every parent wants for their children.

Congratulations, you’re almost there! We take time in the final module and give you the tools and encouragement you need to maintain consistency, including ways to develop support networks for yourself as a parent.

You’ll appreciate these parent-and-child-proven strategies that we present in these special bonus sections.

Meet Your Instructor

Thanks for taking a few moments to review our online parenting course.

I am Mike Wallach, Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and founder of Starfish Parenting. I love working with children and helping them reach their potential through positive reinforcement and I’ve been blessed to be able to pursue my passion professionally for more than 15 years.

I grew up in a small town in Indiana. After college, I joined the AmeriCorps volunteer program, City Year, and worked with children in a school setting.

After two years of AmeriCorps service, I went on to earn my master’s degree in education from the University of Notre Dame. Through my master’s program, I taught third grade at San Xavier Mission School on the Tohono O’odham Reservation in Tucson, Arizona.

I was introduced to Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) through a friend in 2010 and received a Graduate Certificate from Northern Arizona University in Positive Behavior Support and became a BCBA in early 2014.

I live in Edmonds, Washington with my wife Rachel and our three beautiful daughters. We love traveling and introducing our daughters to new things.

FAQ

You bet! This course is for parents of young children ages 1-6. The concepts and strategies taught are applicable to the worst kid you can imagine as well as a perfect angel child.

We’ve seen families enjoy positive results within the first week! With most of the strategies, your kid will pick them up right away, but only with consistency will both your behavior and your child’s behavior change. We suggest you keep a journal throughout our sessions and well after the course to track your own progress along with your child’s increased positive behavior.

Mike’s teachings come primarily from the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. He discovered that the same strategies he was using with children with special needs at work also helped him navigate his own challenges with his kids at home. This inspired Mike to develop a workshop for parents to learn these highly effective and positive techniques to use with their own children.

First, this course is designed to provide you with a foundational understanding of your child and what’s currently going on in your relationship. It will open your eyes to things you may unknowingly do that are fraying your relationship with your child. Second, the course gives you specific and practical tools to better meet your child’s needs. The strategies are introduced with examples and rationale to show how they can be used in many different situations. The foundational understanding alone may cause changes in your own behavior, but when this information is paired with our positive strategies, you then have the tools necessary to build a stronger relationship with your children while developing their independence, social skills, cooperativeness, etc.
