Notably, parents reported using Conscious Discipline skills and strategies more consistently six to eight weeks after parenting classes than immediately after classes concluded. Parents reported feeling happier, less frustrated and more interested in connecting with their children. Both directors and parents noted a positive change in the school-home connection.
