“I've been a Marriage & Family Therapist for over 28 years, and in that time I have watched parenting become a rapidly increasing challenge for parents. Especially with the explosion of the Internet and electronic devices, children are bombarded all day with messages that their parents are not aware of. But parents still have to raise children to be happy and responsible in a world that is powerfully distracting them from that path.

So what can parents do? The best program I've ever come across for parents trying their best to navigate the intricacies of these complicated times is the "Ridiculously Effective Parenting Training" by Greg Baer, M.D. You’ll begin with 45 hours of video training, followed by the most extensive follow-up I’ve ever seen. Your children are worth it. They need you to be on top of loving them and teaching them the essentials of a happy life. This is information that every parent needs—right now."

The Need for Real Love, and Living Without It

How We Behave without Real Love

  •  It is unavoidable that your children suffer as you parent without Real Love.
  • Your inability to parent with Real Love is NOT your fault.
  • But it is your responsibility to change what you do now with what you learn.
  • You can learn to understand the meaning of your children’s behavior, and as you see their pain, your impatience and anger transform into compassion.
  • Lack of love leads to pain, which demonstrates as emptiness and fear, and then follow all the Getting and Protecting Behaviors, which combine to explain all your children’s behaviors.
  • Children use Getting and Protecting Behaviors to find the Imitation Love that replaces Real Love. They MUST medicate their pain.
  • Whining and anger show the relationship between pain, Getting and Protecting Behaviors, and Imitation Love.
  • By finding Real Love, and changing the judgments in your life, you can eliminate the Getting and Protecting Behaviors that plague you and your children.
