A Word from Kimball Lewis

Managing child behavior problems is a skill that can be learned. And the tools and resources available through EmpoweringParent.com and The Total Transformation® child behavior program ensure that you don’t have to learn through trial and error. Instead, you can learn from parents and professionals who know how to effectively manage disrespect, defiance, backtalk, lying, laziness, motivation, and other behaviors.
