    Self-Reg Parenting is an online course that shows parents how to apply Shanker Self-Reg® in their day-to-day parenting.

    The ten-module, video-based Self-Reg Parenting Course is designed to help parents apply Shanker Self-Reg® in their day-to-day parenting.

    The Self-Reg Parenting Program, delivered through TMC’s e-School, explains the principles of Shanker Self-Reg®, and practical ways parents can use Self-Reg to:

    • gain a whole new understanding of their child’s behaviour and how to respond to it
    • learn the impacts of excess stress on children’s behaviour and mood
    • come to grips with their own stress and how it affects their parenting
    • identify and address the subtle and hidden stressors that affect children in ways that parents might not realize
    • find out how other parents use Self-Reg strategies to deal with real-life parenting situations and problems

    The course material consists of videos which parents can watch at their convenience, and rewatch as often as they like over a 6 month period.

    • Vicki Parnell, administrator of the Self-Reg Parenting Facebook Group

    Dr. Shanker and Susan Hopkins provide the core information on Self-Reg and the five-step Shanker Method®. The course will also show parents how to apply Self-Reg strategies in their day-to-day parenting through videos with Vicki Parnell. It includes videos in which parents share their experiences and “aha moments” of using Self-Reg strategies in a variety of practical real-life settings.
