A little over a week ago I had to go on bed rest for early contractions with my pregnancy (and this never happened with my other three pregnancies). This has really put these skills we are learning to a test and I'm happy to say that because of these skills that we are learning as parents and teaching to our children this has gone so much smoother than it would have otherwise. I can't get up and... Read Full Testimonial
Thank-you so much for developing the Self-government implementation course. After reading Nicholeen's book I was so excited to try it on my kids but I lacked the skills and the experience to implement the steps. Everytime I listen to Nicholeen I learn so much. Listening to her tone and advice has transformed our family!
I just wanted to thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience! It has made such a huge difference in our family life!
I was enthralled with your presentation and then...your implementation course!!...Thank you for living your life mission!!! It is so powerful... you have already blessed my life and empowered it! Thank you.
My 4 year old loves your first two books, can't wait for the next one! He makes me read them to him all the time.
I just know that all your hard work is blessing the lives of thousands of people- including mine.
A hearty thank you to you! You have inspired me in such a profound way. I have accomplished many things that are good.
Dear Nicholeen... You put ideas in such a clear, no nonsense way that they will be easier to use with a probable degree of success. Thank you again.
We have employed many of the principles and practices she discusses therein, including the 4 Basic Skills. This has made a huge impact in our home. Our children are ages 4 and 5. They know how to follow instructions, how to speak respectfully, how to accept a no answer and how to disagree appropriately.
I feel so blessed to know you and to have been taught and mentored by you through your seminars (on CD), presentations, blog, and your fabulous book. You have changed our family for good and we are so happy!
The greatest part about it, is that it is so easy to apply to your life. Because of teaching self government, I have found myself saying in my mind "be calm" and then turning to my kids and calmly explaining the situation to them, telling them why it was not appropriate, and instructing them how they could have done things different. This has been invaluable in my life... Read Full Testimonial
Thank you sooo much. I can't tell you how amazing and inspiring your classes were.
God’s answer came through finding, reading and implementing this book, A House United, by Nicholeen Peck. I also participated in several mentoring phone calls with Nicholeen since we had some unusual circumstances. She has taught me the things I needed to do to heal our families’ relationships. I am sometimes frightened when I think about where we were at a few months ago and how... Read Full Testimonial
We spoke on the Implementation Course Conference call last friday about my 3 1/2 year old. He has only been out of instructional control one time!! And to be honest, it was after a 14 hour day right at bedtime.. I think I would have been out of instructional control too!! lol.What an amazing program you have developed!!! I will be forever in debt to you! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
We sure appreiciate all you do to bless all of God's children. You are an answer to so many of our prayers as I'm sure you are to others as well.
We've read your book, and listened to a talk! My husband and I have started implementing some of your techniques, and our house has been so different! ...my oldest son told me yesterday that he wishes I would stop listening to THAT lady, because he's sick of being calm! I asked him if he would rather have yelling in the house, and he agreed that this was much better!... Read Full Testimonial
I am not sure how you do it But when I feel like I am really struggling with a problem or behavior from my children, it seems like you address it. Thank you for your insights and solutions. They have helped my family so much. And I hope they will continue to help.
I have never met Nicholeen Peck personally but I feel like I know her well. I am so grateful for the influence she has been in my life and in my family! Before I heard about Teaching Self-Government I tried very hard to be a good parent but used reactive methods much of the time -- scolding / yelling, spanking, silent treatment, etc. My motive was a very deep love for my children, but I could...

I've read my fair share of parenting books over the years. After my first child was born, I thought one highly-acclaimed author was clueless. It wasn't until my second child came along that I realized the "clueless" author only had experience with a baby like my second. I have collections of parenting books--some to help with one child, some to help with another, etc. I am so impressed with... Read Full Testimonial

My toddler enjoys consequences so much more than the time outs we used to give. I think he feels more empowered and in control of his behavior. He's such a good boy anyway, but your methods have made correction much more of a positive thing. Thanks so much!
Yesterday I was sharing the BBC version of Pride & Prejudice with my kids. At the point where Lydia is in hysterics and pouting because her father says she can't go to Brighton, my five year old daughter turned to me and said, 'Mom, she needs to learn how to accept a No Answer appropriately.' Of course I agreed, and then laughed so hard inside! :) Thanks for teaching my whole family!!! ... Read Full Testimonial
