Cooperative Kids

Bill Corbett is the author of the award-winning book, “Love, Limits & Lessons: A Parent’s Guide to Raising Cooperative Kids.” He is also the founder and president of Cooperative Kids, LLC, an international educational organization designed to help parents and professionals raise confident and cooperative kids who will one day find their purpose in life and on schedule.

“I believe that children act out and misbehave, not because they or their parents are bad, but because they are either attempting to communicate a need or are demonstrating a learned behavior taught to them by the world that surrounds and guides them. My training for parents and professionals helps them read and translate a child’s behavior to first enable them to understand why the acting out is happening. I then fill their “discipline toolbox” with awesome alternative techniques that give them so many more options needed for raising cooperative children in today’s family. The basis for my training is knowing why parenting today is so much more challenging than when we ourselves were children, along with the philosophy of Dr. Rudolph Dreikurs and Alfred Adler. The discipline I teach becomes new daily habits for parents who want to help their children hear the inner voice within themselves that will guide them to find their true purpose in life.” – Bill Corbett

The methodology of Bill Corbett’s teaching was inspired by the studies of child psychologists Rudolph Dreikurs and Alfred Adler and is centered on the approach that effective discipline first requires a solid understanding of why children act out the way they do. “Misbehavior is communication,” Dreikurs wrote in his book, “Children The Challenge,” and this communication must be interpreted in order to use discipline effectively. His theory and methods are based on firm AND respectful discipline and walks closely with the teachings in the New Testament.
Bill’s workshops and classes help parents and professionals examine what is in their “Discipline Toolboxes” and evaluate the fact that many of these tools are outdated and no longer work effectively. Raising children in today’s world requires a different approach to discipline and an admission that parents and teachers today need different tools. Bill works closely with parents and professionals to help rebuild the “Discipline Toolbox” and make room for more effective tools and methods that truly work with today’s challenging child.
