Doc Pop’s 52 Weeks of Active Parenting – Week 42 – Support Your School’s Discipline Efforts -
It is important for parents to get to know and support their school’s discipline plan. Many schools have one in writing these days, so ask for it. If you have a problem with part of the plan, make an appointment to talk with the principal, but do not criticize the plan in front of your kids.

🔑Doc Pop’s 52 Weeks of Active Parenting – Week 35 – Character Talk: Alcohol and Other Drugs
About 90% of kids today experiment with alcohol and other drugs. A lot of these kids eventually get addicted, killed, or just into a lot of trouble from this “pursuit of happiness.” Most parents who try to keep their kids away from these influences do so by threatening massive amounts of punishments if their kids become users or get caught experimenting. The trouble with this approach is that it wears off at about age 18 when the child leaves home. That’s one reason we see so many 18- to 24-year-olds going wild. A better approach is to use some discipline coupled with some persuasive talking. Doc Pop explains in this week’s video. #activeparenting, #charactertalk, #alcoholandotherdrugs, #parentstalktoteens,

Our Story

The goal in Dr. Michael H Popkin founding Active Parenting Publishers(APP) was to apply state-of-the-art educational technology to the field of parenting education. The APP model is largely based upon the theories of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs as it relates to an “authoritative approach” to parenting as opposed to an “autocratic or permissive” approach.

The first three years of the company were devoted to research and development, as Dr. Popkin’s vision of integrating video and group discussion into advanced education programs evolved. In June 1983, APP incorporated and introduced the Active Parenting Discussion Program (APDP), the world’s first video-based parenting education program. Delivered in just six 2-hour sessions, the program was highly successful.

Following the success of APDP, APP went on to produce numerous video-based parenting curriculums, including those for families with young children, teens, and stepchildren, among others, in both English and Spanish language versions. In 2000, APP continued its pioneering tradition by launching the world’s first video-based online parenting class. This program combines video, reading, and group discussion—all administered online.

APP products are distributed throughout the US as well as worldwide, including Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, and Sweden. APP also conducts Leader Training Workshops (https://www.activeparenting.com/for-leaders/research-studies-tools-and-tests/leader-training-workshops/) and Trainings of Trainers (https://www.activeparenting.com/for-leaders/research-studies-tools-and-tests/training-of-trainers/) throughout the country to teach professionals and volunteers how to lead a group using the APP programs. Leader training is available all over the world via live classes, live webinars, and online leader training workshops. Today, APP continues to operate out of Marietta, Georgia, a town just northwest of Atlanta, providing quality education programs for parents, children, and teachers to schools, hospitals, social services organizations, churches, and the corporate market.

Parenting classes are a wonderful way to increase your confidence, acquire new skills and strategies, learn more about your child's development, and improve your relationship with your child and partner. Hope Haven Children's Advocacy Center offers a parenting class to fit the need of every family. Active Parenting Publishers know that being a “successful parent” means more than providing food, clothing, and shelter. It requires taking an active role in a child’s growth and development, and an active approach to parenting. For more information please call 228-466-6395 or Email: Debra Foster [email protected]

Parenting Key by Active Parenting Publishers ❤️
As a parent, have you ever noticed that bedtime can be a challenge? 😴 Dr. Michael Popkin with Active Parenting Publishers shared in his recent blog helpful tips on how to help our little ones go to bed. #Bedtime #ParentingTips #ActiveParenting
This past weekend three of our coalition volunteers were able to be trained on Active Parenting of Teens by Active Parenting Publishers to better serve the parents of Maryvale.
I just learned about your program. When I Googled "Dr. Michael Popkin" this is the unfortunate result. I know this is the wrong state, and not even the same type of doctor, but busy parents might not pay attention to details. Not sure what can be done to avoid the wrong impression here. Something for the SEO team to figure out?
Our company is having major concerns regarding the Active Parenting Program we recently purchased. We have tried to make contact multiple times via email and have not gotten a response. We recently called the 1800 number which directed us to an online survey for a free cruise. We plan to use the Active Parenting program with our court mandated parenting class component we offer. So far we are waiting (and are concerned) about their level of post purchase support.
Excellent program!!!
I am a Parent Educator and have been using your materials since 1986 with much success!
