Raising a responsible, cooperative, self-confident and productive child is at once both the most important and the most difficult task you will encounter. Yet parents are left to undertake this task with absolutely no training whatsoever! The problem is only then compounded when parents find themselves inundated with contradictory ideas, myths, and theories on child rearing.
At RCTC, we bring over five (5) decades of experience as educators, researchers, child/adolescent & family counselors, and university professors to providing parents with the knowledge and skills necessary for raising responsible, capable and resilient kids! Our work is based solidly in the most up to date research on children, families and schools.
Most parent/child difficulties stem not from mysterious disorders, disabilities or dysfunctions, but rather from misinformation or insufficient knowledge and skills for addressing the typical conflicts, stressors and issues of raising children and adolescents.
