Professional Parenting

Non-Punitive Parenting and Education Resources

We are Canada's only non-punitive parenting help resource center. You can certainly parent without using time-outs, consequences, and bribery. We are here to help you build bonds with your children.

Professional Parenting is non-punitive, relationship parenting; not paid in currency, but in kisses from your toddler, hugs from your preschooler, kind words from your young child, conversations from your teenager and fun with your emerging adult.

Unschooling To University Book Project on Kickstarter

In this age of learning everywhere, it is time to launch this book! Unschooling To University

Unschooling To University Book

Do you have a child that is unmotivated in school? (It's not your child or the teacher's fault!)

Are you worried that the school curriculum is not relevant in today's society? (We still do not have mandatory coding lessons)

Do you think your child would thrive if you pulled them out, but don't wish to homeschool? (Not everybody wants to!)

Now there is an alternative. Learners can and do lead their learning! Follow the paths of 25 kids who unschooled and directed their own learning and still entered universities and colleges, with over half in the STEM fields.

Help us get the word out! We are promoting the concept, research and implementation of SELF-DIRECTED EDUCATION (both in and out of school). We've launched a project on Kickstarter! For as little as $10, (in which you get a copy of the e-book), you can support the costs of launching the book titled Unschooling To University: How to impassion your disengaged learner. Just go to, register as a guest (anonymous), and search for Unschooling To University or Judy Arnall. Thanks!
