Parent Effectiveness Training Book Club
Time & Location
Why a P.E.T Bookclub?
Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T) is an internationally run 24 hour course that teaches parents the skills to communicate and connect with their children.
The P.E.T. Book is a great introduction into the skills being taught, however as with most skills we need to practice them and try them on for size. The purpose of this Book Club is to support parents online with their parenting using P.E.T. principles, by creating a safe and open environment in which parents can share their trials and tribulations alongside each other.
