Your Online Better Parents Training Program Outline:
There are 10 modules for completion, which will be sent to you at appropriate intervals, at a pace determined by you, to guide you through the process of learning the skill of asking Better Questions. You complete these in your own time at a time that is convenient to you knowing that online support is only an email away.
The overview for each of the modules is outlined below:
Module One: WELCOME!
Watch our welcome video and then be introduced to the power of questions. We will also share some tips as to how to get the most out of this program and guide you through getting clear about your commitments. Then you will learn about the unconscious patterns we have in our roles as parents and start to recognise the limitations and issues with only having a limited range of response options with your kids. Finally, you will undertake our ‘telling vs asking’ survey to reveal your preferred response style – often with surprising results!
Module Two: THE INSTINCT TO TELL AND WHY IT CAN BE PROBLEMATIC
In this powerful module you are provided with great insight into why the more traditional style of parenting can create issues with our kids - particularly in the longer term. You will recognise habitual unconscious responses that you make and will be inspired to change your style to start having more effective communication with your kids.
Module Three: UNDERSTANDING TELLING VS ASKING and BE INSPIRED TO BE A ‘POTENTIALISER’
There is no doubt that as a Parent there are many times when you will and should tell. This module will clarify more about the options you have in your communication with an emphasis on inspiring you to be more of an asker and bring out the best in your children. We will also introduce you to the term ‘Potentialiser’ which will inspire you to think about broadening your parenting role.
Module Four: BEWARE CREATING THE VICTIM
In this module you will learn that many well intended Parents fall into the trap of ‘helping’ too much which in the long term creates children learning to become ‘victims’. We show you how to change your behaviour to avoid the trap as well as provide strategies to deal with it if it is already evident.
Module Five: QUALITIES OF THE ASKER
There are a number of essential skills and qualities that you need to be an effective questioner. In this module we provide practical insights and tips that enable you to be more effective and communicate more positively with your kids. Indeed the tips we share with you are fabulous life skills that have the potential to transform many of your relationships!
Module Six: LISTENING TECHNIQUES TO ‘POTENTIALISE’
If you are serious about developing the skill to ask Better Questions and create more resourcefulness in your kids you will need to be a better listener. In this module we share some insights, tips and practical strategies to become a better listener and really make your kids feel like they have been heard and understood.
Module Seven: THE POWER OF QUESTIONS
There are questions and there are questions! In this module we share with you the awareness to know what makes a question a Better Question as well as the ability to recognise what types of questions are appropriate in differing situations.
Module eight: ASKING POWERFUL QUESTIONS USING THE ‘IASKU’ MODEL
To help get you started we know that it is useful to have a structure and ideas of what questions to ask. In this module we share with you the Better Questions IASKU model of questioning that is simple and practical and you’ll be able to use immediately with great success! This model is very powerful in that it provides the structure for a questioning journey that is solution focused which creates change and gets results – sometimes which are life changing!

In this module we show you how to apply your learning in everyday practical settings and provide some suggested questions to use to build your confidence. It’s now time to bring all of your learning together and start practicing asking those Better Questions with your kids so we will ask you to commit to practice and share your insights with us. We also provide you with some real life case studies from people who are using the techniques we teach so that you get further inspiration to support you with your learning.

Feedback from Parents who have been trained in the Better Questions technique:

“I was pleasantly surprised at the resourcefulness that my kids showed” – Age: Under 10yrs
“I was calm and happy and my daughter was excited that her friend was coming over to stay and magically all the things that needed to get done were done so much more efficiently and quickly than ever before! A sleepover success story that was driven by Mum staying calm and asking a Better Question!” – Child Age: 8 yrs
“The conversation finished up with my daughter thanking me for my help and stating that she felt really clear and confident about what she now needed to do. I am delighted!”-Child Age 14yrs
