Peaceful Parents, Co-operative Kids: From Chaos to Calm in 6 weeks!

This Parenting with Positive Discipline series will help you show up as the parent you want to be, and create a home where respectful cooperation is the norm. You’ll get tangible, practial tips and tools that are easy to implement and work right away.

Here are just some of the thing you’ll learn over the 6-week class:

In these workshops we’ll role-play, practice skills and have large and small group discussions, giving you the confidence and knowledge to pull out these tools when you need it.

Spouses receive a 50% discount (off the full price of $200), but we strongly advise that each spouse take a separate class to really maximize learning. Please contact us at so we can verify your family discount and provide you with the code.


I’m interested but don’t want to commit to a workshop right now. What can I do?

Take advantage of our introductory FREE 1-hour session that gives you a taste of Positive Discipline in action.

What if I’m only interested in one or two sessions?

The workshops are one unit, and we do not open them up for individual sessions. To really benefit from the teachings and lessons that we provide, it is important that you attend all six workshops.

Can my spouse and I register as one person?

If both of you would like to participate in the workshop (which we do highly recommend for the sake of unity between the parents/caregivers), it is much easier for everyone involved if you register separately. There are activities and homework involved in learning the lessons and applying them, and it becomes difficult for us to evaluate where you are in the process. Please reach out to us at admin@halalparenting for a discount code for the second parent. 

Will I receive any handouts or materials during the workshop?

You will receive digital handouts and materials as they pertain to your learning in the workshop and the lessons we teach. We also highly recommend that you purchase and read Positive Discipline as this forms the basis for our workshop lessons.  This also serves as a valuable reference for you going forward.

How and when will the workshops be conducted?

The workshops will be held via Zoom and will be led by Gulnaz Ahsan, a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator. Sessions will be held on Wednesdays at 6pm Pacific Standard Time and will take 90 minutes.

How many people will be in class?

For maximum effectiveness, we are limiting class size to 20 participants. Once classes reach capacity, you will be placed on a wait-list and will be prioritized for future workshops.

Can I raise my own parenting issues in the class?

In each session, we include time for problem solving for real issues that parents in the workshop have, and work together to apply the rules that we have learned so far to help each other. There are skills that you will learn that you can apply to many different situations that come up within your own family.

Please note that all personal information that is shared in these workshops are confidential and we stress privacy and respect of our members at all times.
