John has been conducting small-group parent retreats around the USA (including Hawaii) for more than twenty years. Attendees have been unanimously positive, even effusive, in their ratings of this nearly one-on-one experience with John, saying things like “the best thing that ever happened to our family!” and “a week after we came to the retreat with you, long-standing discipline problems were cured!”
Until now, retreats have been held on Friday and Saturday, but John has decided to condense the retreat experience into one day only – Saturday – thus making it easier for working parents to attend. The Saturday-only schedule will also be more conducive to participants taking one or two additional days for a mini-vacation.
Each retreat begins at 9:00 AM and lasts until 5:00 PM with a working lunch served on site.
Those folks who are able to do so are invited to join John (and most likely his wife Willie) on Friday night for a group dinner (not included in retreat tuition) that will take place in the private room of a local top-rated restaurant (to-be-determined).
On Saturday, participants can expect three to four hours of teaching from John and then an equal amount of time for questions and discussion of individual parenting issues. John is accepting no more than 10 people (consisting of couples and single parents), ensuring that each parent or couple in attendance will receive plenty of individual attention.

Atlanta, GA - February 1, 2020 - SOLD OUT
New Bern, NC - July 30-August 1, 2020
"My husband and I absolutely loved the parenting seminar this past weekend and feel it is some of the best money we have ever spent on our marriage and kids. Gratefully, our children even presented us with immediate opportunities to practice our new skills and WOW, did they work!" -KG/Sacramento
"I just wanted to take the opportunity to tell you how much your wisdom and advice has helped already, just a day after the retreat! I don’t mean to suggest that there has been a magical behavioral turnaround, but I DO mean to suggest that there has been a magical MINDSET turnaround, simply because you offered the opinion that we needed to learn to tolerate some “flak” from our kids and not interpret their nonsense as actual “conflict” or “rivalry” for which a corrective strategy or technique is needed. Thank you SO MUCH for a wonderful, life-changing weekend!!!" – MW/Atlanta, GA
"God used your teaching to unlock a new parenting season for us. We are armed with the tools, but mostly the mindset, we need to conduct our home as one led by two capable, decisive, strong, loving, and calm parents, not a home led or run by our three young children!" -D & KC/Smyrna, GA
"My wife and I just finished up one of the most peaceful weeks of our lives since becoming parents with a parents-only Saturday morning coffee & conversation (in our own home). Not everything went perfectly this week, but it was a HUGE improvement, and trending in the right direction! Thanks for everything!" - B & KS/Charlotte, NC
