Nicholeen and Spencer Peck parents of four and previous foster parents of many. They have been trained and certified in using the “Teaching Family Model”, which was developed at Boys Town and is used by the Utah Youth Village. The Pecks did foster care for very difficult teens. They taught children with ADHD, OCD, kleptomania, compulsive lying, anger control issues, etc. Nicholeen said, “I taught behaviors, not medication. They would come to us on many medications and usually leave not on any medications. Many children are misdiagnosed. They just need to learn cause and effect better.” Nicholeen has been teaching self government skills to people all over the world for 11 years and has published a book on this subject called "Parenting A House United." They have a new Implementation Program that Nicholeen calls, "...the greatest thing we have to offer families yet!"
