The Art of Positive Parenting (TAPP)


HOME > For Parents


The Art of Positive Parenting program (TAPP) focuses on helping parents create a healthy, mutually respectful family environment. Founded in 1978, TAPP has helped tens of thousands of parents learn how to use positive communication skills with their children, resulting in a strong foundation for building children’s self esteem and parent-child relationships that grow stronger through the years. Children with high self esteem do better in all facets of life. Families who practice positive communication skills find greater enjoyment and more successful ways of navigating the difficult times. It’s never too late to learn more about The Art of Positive Parenting.
