Online Parenting Mastery FAQ

What can I expect for the schedule?

In order to complete the training and receive a certificate of completion, please plan to be present for the whole duration of the training. We will have brief breaks during the training and will break for lunchtime. Classes will start at 8 am China Standard Time and go until 3 pm China Standard Time.

Is it required that I bring a spouse?

No. However, if you are married the answer should be YES in your mind. We recognize that there are single parents or perhaps extreme circumstanes where it's just not possible for a spouse to come and we don't want to exclude your opportunity to become an excellent parent simply because of your personal circumstances. There is no discount for coming by yourself. Another member of your household may come in place of a spouse; however, this MUST be arranged in advance and it's important that they can sit through a full day of classes. For this online training we feel it is especially important that you have someone with you that you can practice skills with during the training as we will have times where everyone is asked to practice and it will be a much better experience for you if someone is with you.

Can I invite a friend over to watch with me?

This event will have a lot of expected participation. Everything coming from your computer should be specific to YOUR family. To have a friend in the room with you would actually distract from your own experience and would require additional focus for Nicholeen and the mentors who manage our breakout groups. So the answer is no unless that person knows they are specifically there to support YOU. It also wouldn't be honest for you to have to pay for a ticket and for your friend to not have to. If you are single or have no other family member who could possibly be your partner for this training then please reach out to us for approval as we do want everyone attending to have a partner if possible.

In special cases a group may want to meet together and participate as a large group remotely. Such cases should be approved on a case-by-case basis by contacting David.

Will the online training be as good as the face to face training?

There is always an advantage to live, face to face connection. In that way online will never be as good as attending a face to face event.  However, with the technology we have today we expect to be able to deliver an excellent experince online that mirriors what we do face to face. If you are unable to fly out to one of our face to face events this will still be a great option for you.

Will it be recorded so that I can watch later?

No! This only works as a live training as there are many parts where we will break out into groups and practice and discuss skills and principles. We will be recording internally for security reasons, but we have no plans to have recordings of this event distributed at any time.

How will I join on the day of the seminar?

You should receive a link in your email the day before the seminar. You will need to have the Zoom application installed, if you don't the link will prompt you to do so. When you join you will be placed into an online waiting room where we will verify your registration and check you in.

Will I be able to have one on one time with Nicholeen?

Nicholeen always takes time to answer questions during the Parenting Mastery training. We limit the number of attendees to ensure that that is possible. This will not be like a webinar. You will be able to speak up and ask questions. Nicholeen will watch for raised hands and call on people whenever possible. The goal with this event is to make it as close to an in person experience as possible. If anyone needs a 1 on 1 meeting with Nicholeen, she does plan on having time slots available that people can schedule during the event for an extra fee. Even at the face to face events Nicholeen isn't usually able to do 1 on 1 meetings with people without them being scheduled.

Will I get training materials?

As part of this training you will receive a workbook, cue cards, and a choices map. Those within the United States will receive those by mail, while those outside the United States will receive digital versions. If you live outside the United States and would like to receive printed copies, please contact us and we can calculate additional shipping costs necessary to get the materials sent to you in time. All materials should be received before the event unless you registered within 2 weeks of the event in which case you may only get a digital copy in time.
