**HAVE MORE TIME AND ENERGY…ACTUALLY TEACH AND ENJOY YOUR JOB, AGAIN**
Tired of sitting through useless professional development (PD)?
Tired of staring at the cell phone and wishing you were
in the classroom working on lesson plans and organizing materials?
It’s time to TAKE CONTROL of your own professional development!
I realize that it will be mandated that some of your PD time this year, as always, be used to “educate” you about the meaningless, time-consuming hoops you will have to jump through this year that will be gone by next year. BUT, if your school has any more professional development time left, might I suggest doing some PD that WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER rather than harder. Every skill, routine, and procedure that I show you through systematic and explicit instruction will give you MORE TIME and MORE ENERGY that you can use to ACTUALLY TEACH and ENJOY YOUR JOB!!!! I offer a money back guarantee that during my first session with your school I can show you how to NEVER ARGUE WITH A STUDENT EVER AGAIN. What would your school be like if there were never arguments between adults and students? Might it be worth it to find out? Right now, today, sign up to get information about how I can come to your school, live and in person, to show you how to take control of your profession, your classroom and your life!
Principals and Superintendents: Give this gift to your teachers and to yourselves. I can show your teachers how to teach without needing to utilize an administrator for discipline issues. You can find out what it’s like to preside over a district where every teacher is seen as the ultimate disciplinary figure in their own classroom. I can show you how to use minimal time and energy when dealing with discipline on the RARE occasion that you have to involve yourself with it! Sign up today to change the lives of all stakeholders in your district forever.
Parents: Tired of working too hard to set limits with your kids? Sign up today to invite me to work with your PTO, PTA or other parent organization. This can be done in tandem with educator training at your school.
I can’t wait to get started! Let’s do it!

Feel free to look around to learn more about the site and about me, The Kid Whisperer™!
I started this blog for one reason: to help adults to more effectively deal with kids. This blog is for teachers, parents, principals, school nurses, teacher’s aides, lunch ladies, lunch mannies, school custodians – basically anyone who interacts with children. By answering your questions about the particular issues you are having, I will be able to show you simple skills you can use to increase self-confidence while making the children in your care compliant and respectful.
Stop laughing. I’m serious! You don’t believe me? Try me. Simply ask a question via Facebook. Please keep your questions brief, as I have a short attention span. I will be selecting one to three questions per week to answer here on my blog or on facebook. If I don’t get to your question right away- please be patient! I am a 3rd grade teacher, college instructor, small business owner, and behavioral consultant.
The other reason is this: I developed this site because there is absolutely no other place on the whole wide internet that can give you real, skill-based, usable advice about how to effectively set and enforce limits with children in a calm and loving way. Other websites, or pre-electrical paper-based single format websites, also known as “books,” often give us lots of theory or tips about how to manage kids, but never offer any skills that we can actually use! They either give us a useless theory about kids created by a guy who never actually dealt with a single kid in his entire life, or they give us a cute little tip about what to do with a kid in one specific situation that is only helpful in that exact situation. These systems are designed to keep you coming back for more advice, not to teach you practical skills you can use in real life where no two situations are the same.
Using Love and Logic® techniques, combined with Kid Whisperer™ methods, I have dealt with thousands of kids and helped hundreds of adults to be the most strict and most loving adults they can be. These methods give adults tools that result in thoughtful, self confident, respectful children. Children with parents or teachers using these skills simply end up making better choices! It is my hope that I am able to continue to facilitate this through my blog, one question at a time.
So this is for you: whether you are in education or knee-deep into parenting, I want this blog to be where you can come to get skills you can use in any situation with even the most challenging kids.
Feel free to “like” me on Facebook. Tell people about the blog on Facebook or at the supermarket. If you think this could be helpful for you, subscribe to my rss blog feed so that you will be alerted to any answers to questions here on askthekidwhisperer.com!
So ask me a question already!
