How can I be sure this will actually work for my family?

Over the course of 15+ years, we’ve helped thousands of parents who believed their family issues were “unfixable” or “too difficult”. Many parents struggled for years before they found our program. The feeling that “nothing is going to work” is very, very common.

We understand that you want to be sure about investing in this program — and WE want you to be sure, too. That’s why we offer a zero-risk, 30-day money-back guarantee. (You can also rest assured knowing we’ve helped transform over 75,000 families with a 99% satisfaction rate.)

If you don’t see dramatic, life-changing improvements in your kids’ behavior within 30 days, we’ll give you your money back, no questions asked. All you have to do email us your request within 30 days of enrolling and we’ll process your refund.

How does the PPS program produce such quick results?

Positive Parenting Solutions produces results so quickly because of its practical, tool-based structure. Most parenting courses are big on theory, but they don’t offer actual tactics you can use in the heat of the moment.

Every concept you learn in our program comes with battle-tested tools and word-for-word scripts. So you always know exactly what to say and when to say it, which prevents you from reacting emotionally or leaving things to chance. Our tools are specifically designed to help you identify, isolate and resolve the root causes of the misbehaviors as they happen, rather than putting band-aids on symptoms.

How much time will I need to devote to this?

Positive Parenting Solutions is structured to fit easily into the lives of busy parents who don’t have hours to spend slogging through long classes. Every lesson is bite-sized (no more than 15 minutes) and easy to tackle. Many of our most popular (and effective) tools require no more than 10 minutes a day to have a noticeable impact on your family life.

Best of all, the “Toolbox” section of the program is organized so that you can look up a specific parenting issue at any time and immediately pull up the exact solution you need. No need to pore over pages of reading material or re-watch hour-long videos just to find one exercise. Just login, look up the problem, and grab the solution!

How long do I get access to the program?

If you choose a Silver or Gold membership to Positive Parenting Solutions, you get LIFETIME access to all course materials, advanced modules included.

We offer lifetime access because parenting is a marathon, not a sprint, so you should be able to lean on our program whenever you need it, even if you need it five or 10 years from now.

Gold members also get one year’s worth of live “Ask Amy” group coaching sessions, as well as lifetime access to our amazingly supportive members-only Facebook group.

What if my partner isn’t on board? Will this course still work?

Have no fear: we see parents with completely different parenting styles all the time. If you and your partner aren’t on the same page, that’s OK. Positive Parenting Solutions will work for your family even if your partner isn’t involved.

As you start putting our tools to use, your child will begin responding differently to you. You’ll experience more cooperation and less attitude. The energy between you and your child will become lighter, more positive, and more fun …. and it won’t be long before your partner takes note!

After witnessing the effectiveness of the program with their own eyes, your partner will suddenly be more open to “seeing what this Positive Parenting Solutions stuff is all about.” And showing it to them will be easy, because our videos are all so short and simple. Often just asking your partner to “ watch this one quick video” on a given parenting challenge is enough. After one or two videos, they’re all in!

What if my partner doesn’t want to spend money on this?

If your partner is hesitant to pay for the course, here’s an easy script you can use to guide the conversation. It will help draw your partner’s attention to the enormous impact the course will have on both your lives, as well as the risk-free nature of purchasing the program, thanks to our 30-day happiness guarantee. (Moreover, it’ll help your partner see that $20 a month for 12 months is a pretty small price to pay to go to bed every night feeling like The Best Mom or Dad In The World.)

Will this course work for children with learning differences and/or special needs?

Yes! Rest assured, there are many parents in our program who have children with learning, attention, sensory and behavioral differences — including ADHD, ODD, and autism.

Positive Parenting Solutions gives you tools that will help you better connect with your children on a fundamental level, laying the groundwork for positive, healthy interactions. When you use our tools to bring out the best in your child’s behavior, it will make managing the other aspects of the diagnosis easier and much less stressful. From there, you may or may not want to layer additional therapies or interventions on top of this core foundation, depending on your child’s specific needs and circumstances.

Looking to connect with parents dealing with the same diagnosis as you?
Be sure to check out our Gold membership — Gold members get lifetime access to our Members-Only Private Facebook community, where you’ll be able to get support from parents who have been in your shoes and know exactly what you’re going through.

What age range is this program for?

Positive Parenting Solutions is designed for parents of children ages 2.5 through 16. This might seem like a wide range, but after watching thousands of families test our tools and scripts over the years, we can say with absolute confidence that the program is as effective and valuable for toddlers as it is for teens.

And while it’s never too late to commit to improving your parenting, the earlier you enroll, the more value you will get out of having lifetime access to the course. (Without question the #1 comment we hear from new members is: “I only wish I started this earlier!”)

My partner and I are divorced — will this still work?

Yes — many members in our program do their parenting apart. The good news is that even if your ex is not enrolled or interested in the course, the tools will still work for you. Your child will learn there are different rules, routines, and expectations at your house than at theirs, and it will help your children become more independent, responsible, and respectful.

Want tools & guidance specifically for divorced parents? Our Silver or Gold membership is the best option for you — they both include an ADVANCED training module for divorced and co-parenting situations..


What topics does the course cover?

The course teaches 37+ battle-tested tools with the exact scripts you can rely on, even
in the heat of high-stress tantrums and fights. You’ll know exactly what to say & when to
say it, no matter what life throws at you. See the Course Details Page for the full
curriculum, including the Advanced Modules included in Silver and Gold membership plans.

How do I know which plan is right for me?

If you want the maximum amount of support possible — from both Amy and our amazing member community — we recommend choosing our Gold membership.
