Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) is an intensive 8-week group parenting workshop for parents of children all ages. You will learn practical communication skills that help you become compassionate without being permissive and assertive without resorting to punishment and reward. 

We offer P.E.T. workshops in Cape Town and Stellenbosch. 


What You Will Learn

  • Practical Tools to help you parent with more Confidence
  • How to Listen Better so that you create Strong Relationships with your children and keep an open line of communication into their teen years.
  • How to Be Clear about Behaviors of your children that are not okay with you so that you as a Parent Get Your Needs met.
  • How to help your children develop into Strong, Self-Sufficient, Responsible Adults.
  • How to Problem Solve in a much better way without resorting to power to Reduce Stress & Resentment within your family (Please see a letter about spanking our children attached!)

We Don’t Blame, We Train!


  • P.E.T. workshops are judgment free.
  • We don’t blame, we don’t shame, and we don’t mess with your values.
  • We are simply here to help you acquire very practical communication and conflict resolution skills so you can feel more confident as a parent, instill responsibility and create a nurturing family environment in which your child can thrive.
  • Some have said P.E.T. is life-changing, but there is no magic to it. It’s like learning how to drive a car, it takes time and practice.
  • We work with any skill level, with parents of children all ages.
  • We encourage you to make mistakes and have fun while learning.
