Welcome to Sproutable's How to Grow Remarkable Kids, an introduction to Positive Discipline.
This course gives you the framework of Positive Discipline parenting: a guideline and a compass to direct your parenting plan. It reminds us to ask, am I connecting? Am I inviting capability? Am I teaching? How am I modeling? What do they need to learn?
It’s the bridge that gets you from the challenges now to the skills they need when they are 25 years old. If we want to raise remarkable humans, how do we do that? What does it look like?
We show you how to teach life skills, invite cooperation, build strong relationships and find the joy and humor in everyday moments. The result? Capable, confident and remarkable kids (and parents).
Unlike other online courses, we show you real parents and kids practicing the Positive Discipline tools, no actors needed. All videos are under 5 mins (because parents are busy) and you can access the entire thing from your phone (free app!), when you want. It’s self-paced, video-based, entertaining and highly educational.
Join the Sproutable community. Parenting is relentless and we are here for you. You don’t have to suffer alone. You have the power to make a change and embrace the potential your special family has. We’ll show you how.

How much time does this take?
Less than 5 minutes, per week. Wait - what?!? Yep, we know the insanity of running a family circus so we found the best way to deliver a lot of information quickly, VIDEO! We’re not just going to show you a talking head in front of a camera, nor are we going to bore you with a pre-recorded class or a PowerPoint presentation. We’re going to use high impact videos to show you real parents and children practicing the tools. Saving time + seeing it in action=win win.
Online. You can access the online series at anytime from your computer or mobile phone. Better yet, let the videos play while you do the dishes or fold a load of laundry.
Our videos show examples of real parents and children using the tools. These are NOT actors. We believe in these tools so much that we don't need actors to show you that it works.
Unlimited Q&A We believe in the power of community! Post questions and ideas to share with other participants. Comments sections are available on every topic page. Questions will be answered by the Sproutable expert team.
Downloads From checklists to readings to quick worksheets to help you kick it up a notch - we offer supplemental materials to help you dig deeper when you want.
Live Monthly Chats. Our very own Julietta Skoog will be coming to your phone/computer screen once a month for all enrolled. She will answer your questions live and give you a little inspiration and energy to help keep you grounded on even the hardest of days.
Science Tips! We've added short videos to each topic that highlight the science behind the parenting tools. How does the brain work when we have big emotions? How do children learn language? What is executive functioning? This is where we get super geeky - because we really love the science, and we know you learn better when you know the WHY.

Enjoys family time
Is part of a strong parenting team
Is savvy with each developmental stage
Sees mistakes as opportunities to learn
