So let's get real for a second. Every school morning you wake up hoping "this is going to be a good day." Your morning is wrecked when your kid wakes up and doesn't want to go to school. These are the mornings you fear. Parents of school refusal kids know what I am talking about. Your day depends on how your kid wakes up. If your kid is good, you're good. If your kid is bad, you're stuck. What do you do? Do you try forcing your kid in the car, take away his/her iPad "forever," go to work and leave him/her at home..... School Refusal parents, you need help!
Join us for School Refusal as we help you step back, determine the reasons for your child's school refusal behaviors, and start to develop a step-by-step parenting plan to encourage your child to go to school stay all day, everyday.

We know family life can be very, very, busy. So....we've made it easy for you to join this class. This class is held Live Online. No need to get a baby sitter! You'll join from the convenience of your computer. When you join online, you'll see the Instructor and his/her screen. You'll not be seen or heard, but will be able to engage in conversation and ask questions through the chat platform. So....put your comfortable clothes on, sit back, and enjoy.
Convenience. We know life can be busy and you may need to squeeze learning CBT skills in with doing laundry, watching your child at soccer practice, making dinner, and everything else in your over scheduled life. You can take many of our classes LIVE online (like a webinar) anywhere life takes you.
Access to the Class Web Page. Each class has a dedicated web page you have unlimited access during and after the class. The class web page is where you’ll find the class notes and audio/video recording of the class. So, if you missed the LIVE portion of the class, just head to the class web page for everything you missed.
Interactive. While the class won’t meet in person, you still get the interactive experience of an in person class during the LIVE portion of the class. Each class has a text based chat room for all your questions and discussions.
Get To Wear Your Comfy Clothes. Since you won't be seen or heard during the class, you can wear your pajamas, comfy clothes, and even pick your nose (we don’t suggest, but hey you do you ;) while participating in the class.
Participate Anywhere in the World. Since our classes are online, you can participate if you live in Minnesota, New York, on the beach, in the mountains, or anywhere else in the world.
Learn the Basic CBT Skills Taught in Individual Therapy. This is HUGE as you can still learn the skills we teach in Individual Therapy if you don’t live in Johnson County, Kansas or Individual Therapy is not a good fit for you.
One Fee Pays For Everyone. As many people as you can get huddled around your phone, computer, or projector are the amount of people who can participate in the class with you. We don’t charge for each person who participates. One fee pays for everyone ;)
