FREE Teleclasses

If you want to learn new parenting and teaching skills in a manner that is fast, fun, interactive, practical, and FREE, then Cindy's teleclasses are for you. They are conducted on a conference line which you dial into from wherever you happen to be at the specified time. You can even mute your line so you may start dinner or run a load of laundry while you listen. It couldn't be any easier or more convenient!

The topics are plucked from Cindy's live seminars are specially redesigned for the teleclass format. Select the class and time that works best for you, then follow the simple registration instructions. Feel free to invite friends and acquaintances who might also be interested in the topic. (They must register separately, however, in order to secure a reserved line.) Act fast, as teleclasses do fill up quickly.

NOTE: For those who have taken courses in the Love and Logic™ philosophy, these teleclasses will provide you with just the "shot in the arm" you need to skillfully implement the concepts you learned in your course work.

NOTE: Teleclasses are designed with parents and educators in mind, and they all run 30 minutes, followed by time for questions and feedback. Be sure to check back frequently as new teleclasses are added on a regular basis.
