🔑Week 28 of Doc Pop’s 52 Weeks of Active Parenting – Teach Your Child a Skill - One of the best ways to build self-esteem, courage, and your relationship with your child is by taking the time to teach her a skill—anything from practicing with her to improve a sports skill to introducing a brand new skill such as cooking a soufflé. Make sure that your child is interested in learning the skill and that it is age appropriate. Doc Pop explains seven tips to help teaching your child a skill pay off in multiple ways!

Nobel-prize winning economist, James Heckman has said – “It is imperative to change the way we look at education. We should invest in the foundation of school readiness from birth to age 5.” “Some kids win the lottery at birth; far too many don’t—and most people have a hard time catching up over the rest of their lives. Children raised in disadvantaged environments are not only much less likely to succeed in school or in society, but they are also much less likely to be healthy adults.”
Head Start(https://www.nhsa.org), and other early childhood programs that promote school readiness, are so vital.

🔑Week 27 of Doc Pop's 52 Weeks of Active Parenting - Handle Temper Tantrums with Grace - Parents, as we all know, aren’t the only ones in the family to sometimes blow their stack and mishandle anger. Kids have also been known to throw a wide variety of tantrums either out of frustration or to just get their own way. In this era of zero tolerance for violence in school, the wise parent (and even the wiseguy parent who doesn’t want his child to get expelled from preschool) will take the time to teach his child how to manage his temper. A few basic family rules enforced with some consistent logical consequences are a good start. Doc Pop explains in this week's video. #activeparenting, #parenting, #docpops52weeksofactiveparenting, #DocPop, #tempertantrum

🔑Doc Pop's 52 Weeks of Active Parenting - Week 26 - Your Temper: Use it, Don't Loose It - The more your child glares at you, the angrier you get. The more you act angry, the more defiant she gets. The more she digs her heels in, the more you feel you’re going to blow your top! Sound familiar? This is a classic power struggle. The way out is to remove yourself from the fight. The renowned psychiatrist Rudolf Dreikurs had an almost foolproof method. Just take a deep breath and say these magic words: “I’m going to the bathroom.” Then walk to the nearest bathroom and stay there until you both calm down. You might keep a copy of this book in there, too, so that you can reread the sections on discipline and figure out how to use your temper constructively when you come out.

Taking care of the caregiver is an important aspect of parenting. Breastcancer.org recommends breast self-exams once a month and the CDC shares things you can do to reduce the risk of breast cancer. They are:
• Keep a healthy weight and exercise regularly.
• Don’t drink alcohol, or limit the amount of alcohol you drink.
• If you are taking hormone replacement therapy or birth control pills, ask your doctor about the risks.
• Breastfeed your children, if possible.

🔑Week 25 of Doc Pop's 52 Weeks of Active Parenting - Use a Positive "I" Message to Encourage Positive Behavior - When people of any age become discouraged, their behavior becomes less productive or even downright negative, and they may give up altogether. One sure way for you to discourage your kids is to ignore their positive efforts to improve. Their perspective becomes “Why bother?

🔑Week 23 - Doc Pop's 52 Weeks of Active Parenting - Logical Consequences vs. Punishment - The difference between logical consequences and punishment is that they are logically connected to the misbehavior rather than arbitrary. After all, what does sitting in the corner have to do with coloring on the walls? When we connect the consequence logically to the misbehavior, kids not only are more likely to see the justice in our actions, but they learn to be responsible for the consequences of their actions. Doc Pop explains in this weeks video. This is another important aspect of discipline we teach in Active Parenting. #parentingleaders, #parentingeducation, #parenting, #parenteducator, #parents, #activeparenting, #discipline, #disciplinetechnique

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.

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!
