  • Are you getting worn down by morning mayhem, bedtime battles, sibling scuffles, dawdling and defiance?

  • Do you try to avoid using threats, bribes and punishments, but find yourself using them anyway, just to survive the day?

  • Would you like to learn practical and effective methods that will make life with little kids easier and more satisfying?

“How To Talk” is an experiential, effective and highly engaging program for parents and caregivers of children ages two to ten, based on the best selling book by Joanna Faber and Julie King.  Each week you will leave the session with practical strategies that you can implement immediately to improve communication and discipline and enhance your relationships at home.

This online workshop meets using Zoom.us. Participants must have internet access with a camera and microphone. Space is limited to give all participants the opportunity to practice and ask questions. 

“This workshop was WONDERFUL! It was so helpful to talk to Julie and hear her wise and experienced take on so many of the struggles that we go through as parents to little children every day. She has such a graceful way to help us see the impact of our words on our children and how we can shift our thinking and way we speak to really help them be problem solvers and want to cooperate. I highly recommend it!”

Many workshop graduates say they wish there were a way to follow up after the workshop has ended. Now there is! The Refresher and Reunion workshops are open to graduates of any one or more workshops by Julie King or readers of any How To Talk book. We will address your issues and challenges from home (or the park, or school, or…).

  • Do you try to avoid using threats, bribes and punishments, but find yourself using them anyway, just to survive the day?
  • Would you like to learn practical and effective methods that will make life with little kids easier and more satisfying?

In a supportive environment, you will reflect on your goals and values, practice specific skills in role-plays and exercises, and learn how to communicate clearly and consistently with your children in the face of normal, everyday challenges. You’ll leave with practical strategies that you can implement immediately to improve communication and discipline and enhance your relationships at home.

SUNDAY INTENSIVE FORMAT: For busy parents who simply cannot fit a weekly series into your schedule, this workshop presents the same tools and strategies of the How To Talk approach in one day!

“I just attended a workshop with Julie King. It is LIFE-CHANGING. Truly, these methods are novel and they feel a little weird sometimes but I cannot BELIEVE how well they work. It is almost like I came home to different kids!…

“Anyway, if any of you parents out there need some new approaches, I highly recommend Julie and her book, and if you can swing it, one of her trainings. It’s different being in a group discussion than just reading a book when you are about to go to sleep.”

— Heather Ruben
