    • Thanks, Amy. The links should show up in your browser’s “shared links” folder…likely near where your bookmarks are stored.

  1. Hello,

    I am a new middle school counselor and I have learned that the person in this role before used your resources and would send out a weekly letter to parents. I like this idea and I am wondering if you have weekly information on the link or how it works?

    Thanks for any help!

  2. Brilliant read. Very rare nowadays as most people just write a quick article just to get more views. This one is different! Both informative and helpful. Thank you!

  3. I want to use eparenting material with parents in my counseling clinic
    and learn enough about it to help parents do the same.
    It’s not apparent to me how to start learning and downloading the material.
    Can I do this out of state, and not go to the 2-hour workshop in Wisconsin?

    • Hi Chris,
      We’re not currently training on the eParenting materials out of state. However, you are welcome to reference our online, public materials in your work with parents.
