How To Know If P.E.T. Is Right For You?

So you've decided that you want to learn more about being a "better" parent. After all, it is widely considered to be the most important job you can ever take on. While that's true, you might also be realizing that you have no experience, skill or education on how to effectively raise a responsible and happy child. The stuff that you're trying now just isn't working and you feel terrible every time you yell at your kids. The future generation is in YOUR hands! Now what?

Well first of all, kudos to you for taking the first step in seeking knowledge about how to manage important duty.

You might ask yourself a few questions like:

  • Does punishment really work? 
  • Is compromise necessary? 
  • Should parents hold the power?
  • Are there other skills out there that you've never even heard of?

Since we know that you won't just go out and purchase the first parenting book that you come across (promise us you won't do that!), we've broken down and eight of the most common parent training programs out there and compared them with our Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.)

In the article, you will find P.E.T. compared with:

  1. Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.)
  2. Nonviolent Communication (N.V.C.)
  3. How to Talk so Kids Will Listen and Listen so Kids Will Talk
  4. Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (S.T.E.P.)
  5. Active Parenting
  6. Love and Logic
  7. Triple P (Positive Parenting Program)
  8. Dare to Discipline
