Welcome to Parenting with Joy. For the past 25 years, Barbara Joy has been offering education, encouragement and tools and tips galore to thousands of parents.

Barbara often says, “Parenting is most likely the hardest thing you will ever do in your lifetime.  It is also the most important and rewarding thing, you will ever do.”

Barbara’s Positive Parenting Coaching has helped many families acquire the parenting tools that they are desperately searching for and have not found in a parenting book.  Parents from all over the United States are finding that as they make some positive changes in their parenting style, they soon see positive changes in their children’s behavior.

Barbara coaches families in person who live in northern California.  She also coaches many by phone and computer. It has proven to work quite well.  Many parents say that, with their busy lives, phone coaching works very well for them. They know that they have an hour scheduled to focus on the parenting challenges on a regular basis.

Barbara also offers classes and workshops as requested. Browse through this website to get an idea of what she is currently offering as well as possible topics for your school or organization.
