my life as a parent of 3 amazing but difficult boys is so much better once i started utilizing some of the tools provided in the lessons in the total transformation. I feel more in control and there is such a better atmosphere in the home. We all comminicate more effectively and have respect for each other. I have a way to go but i am on my way.
Very Informative and Helpful

We have been impressed with the guidance available both through the discs and parental support line. Originally we ordered the teaching for help with teenage granddaughters. We had no idea our 9 year old grandson would end up being the primary recipient of the excellent guidance offered. Thanks so much for taking the time to offer help for these stressed out parents and grandparents.

Total transformation has improved our parenting skills and helped us identify clearly what needed to be changed in our home. Parenting is the most important job and oddly doesn't require a formal education or offer a handbook. Rather, the experience of friends and our parents. Now there is a comprehensive program to strengthen and sharpen our parenting skills.
We had little hope for our situation and this program gave us the courage to deal with my son. We saw within a week a glimmer if hope and what was to come if we were more effective. We now have peace in our home.
the helpful program.

Children do not come with instructions. This program is the closesed to instructions that I have ever seen.

I did this program with my 15 year old son who is diagnosed with ODD, Bi-polar disorder, and ADD. When we first started the program he resisted quite a bit, but as time went on he responded pretty well. I wish all of the disks were video, but other than than James helped me as the parent. I have a greater understanding of my child and what I need to do or not do to have him respond. I use his tips daily, and though we have some setbacks, for the most part the tips from the program have been set in stone with great outcome. Thank you so much for helping me and my family!

Turning My Adult Grandson Around

Review by : MimifromMissouri
I have not completed the Total Transformation program yet, but what I have seen so far is that this is the best thing I could have gotten my hands on.My Grandson who has lived with us for the past 8 yrs. turned into a bitter, angry, rebellious teen.Now that he's 18, I didn't know if we could ever or how we could turn him around. But after following some of the advise and suggestions that I have learned from this program, I'm beginning to see some changes. There's much, much less yelling and fighting. Our house is starting to feel more like home instead of a battleground. I only wish I had gotten hold of this program 8 yrs. ago.

Review by : Julie B.
I was feeling pretty powerless by the time I got my total transformation program. I figured that it sounded like just the thing I needed. The best part of the program (and to be honest, I haven't actually gone through the whole thing yet) is that it let me know that it is not my fault that my autistic son can be so horrible. Furthermore, it let me know how to have some power in this home again.

Before ordering this program my husband and I struggled on how to handle my young sons outbursts and temper. We have only had this program for a short time and we have seen some positive results. I was the parent who wanted to give my kids everything, but this ended up spoiling them and when I did say no well obviously it wasn't good. We still have a long way to go but I realize my whole household needs transforming not just my son.

My children both had ADHD and at the current ages of 34 and 30, our lives are still difficult.I purchased and reviewed this program because I am also a teacher,but mostly because I wanted TOOLS to assist me with my adult children and others in my life - it's never too late to improve daily life! I was extremely impressed with The Total Transformation. I incorporate the entire program into my life - with everyone - improving my own behavior and theirs. Early intervention with this program could have saved me many sleepness nights and non-productive years when my children were teenagers and young adults. Total Transformation teaches the parents how to take control every step of the way.
Happy Trails Ahead

Review by : Happy Papa
After going through somewhat of a nasty divorce, I felt like I was losing control of my two boys. One of my sons got into drugs and problems with the law and the younger boy was having problems at home and at school. I was at a break point, and I was told about The Total Transformation from a friend. I have been implementing the ideas and behaviors coached in the material for about 90 days now and I can feel some very positive changes in both my life and my kids life. There is still work to do but I feel like I have the tools to help me get through anything now. Thanks to The Total Transformation, I see a positive future ahead.

Review by : Michelle
I've only started using the program, and I have not used the Parental Support Line to date. I have found by using the techniques in the program that it is already less stressful (shouting and arguing)in our house. I'm hoping that as we go along, it will get better and I see it only getting better. The old saying "Never Look Back" is my new motive. We've been seeing a therapist and for the first time in years we are seeing results.

We found the information from the total transformation program very helpful to understanding why our children act out and provided the tools needs for us to be able to assist our child in his/her problem solving.

Review by : Anxious Mom
Although I never completed the program as my daughter turned 18 and moved out of the house, I thoroughly enjoyed the first 4 lessons. My daughter suffered from anxiety and seemed to defy me at every turn. I learned to stay calm and not attend every fight I was invited to. I stopped screaming and learned to walk away without an argument. It really lessened the fights. I also learned to make my daughter accountable for her 'entitled' behaviour. It also made me identify her problem behaviours and my parenting styles. These lessons and the fact that she moved out has given her some understanding of how bad things were. She has matured and is now becoming much more responsible and our time together is now enjoyable. I used to avoid contact or minimize our time together because of the inevitable fights.
A Complete Turnaround
, February 08, 2014
Review by : Pattie
I purchased the Total Transformation in a last resort attempt to control an already out of control situation. My son was diagnosed with Intermittent Explosive Disorder 3 years ago and was not responding to any medications. After the death of his father, he began to lose control and became increasingly violent, damaging property and injuring myself and his sister. The Total Transformation taught me that I needed to change how I reacted to his outbursts and how to deal with his situation. It also provided me with a better understanding of proper consequences. He has made a complete turnaround over the last 6 months and we are a much happier family not having to tip toe around situations that used to cause a lot of grief.

I absolutely loved this program and had been telling some friends about it. It is truly an amazing, eye-opening program. When I started writing the feedback, it was messy because I really put time into learning the concepts. I was writing in my workbook and taking notes on the feedback form. After about 3 lessons, I realized it was messy so I called customer service to get a blank feedback form. When I transferred all of my notes over to the new copy, I inadvertently forgot to copy one page. I sent it in on time and now I cannot get a refund. They won\'t let me send my messy sheet to replace the blank sheet. I think this is a technicality and I think this is the way they get their money back. I knew there was probably a catch---use people\'s mistakes against them--but the Dr. and his wife seem so nice and genuine it\'s hard for me to really believe. I spent hours working on that feedback form. Literally hours and hours. I am sorry that such a positive experience turned so negative, especially in my mind when I think about it. I also teach several business corporate training courses and business college courses. I\'ll be sure to use this as an example of bad customer service in every class I teach. I shouldn\'t have tried to make the feedback form nicer and easier to read.
Dear Debi Jack,
We are thrilled to hear that you loved the program and found it both eye-opening and amazing. Itís also great to hear you have been telling some of your friends about it. We sincerely appreciate the time and effort that you put into your Total Transformation Feedback Survey and are very sorry to hear that you did not qualify for a refund. Though we do provide the opportunity to correct an incomplete survey to qualify for a refund, corrections cannot be made once the postmark date has passed per the terms printed clearly on the survey. It is certainly not our intent to find technicalities to prevent consumers from getting a refund. We do have uniform policies that are applied to all consumers, which allow us to remain consistent and fair for all situations. We are saddened to hear that your positive experience with the program has become an overall negative experience for you.
We hope that even though you did not qualify for a refund for your survey, you have found and will continue to find, successes with your family in using the tools and techniques from The Total Transformation Program.

This program has made me more calm with dealing with my grandchild and even my 23 year old daughter, who has bipolar. I deal with behavior and try to disengage the emotions and be direct and simple. I've made clear the rules and what behavior I expect and the consequence for the breaking. The consequences are age appropriate and simple to understand for all parties. Been hard but I'm making head way in getting back the control I lost. It took time to loose the control and it will take time to get it back. I learned that I have to give respect to the positive they do and stand firm when they are negative. Most of all remain calm and unemotional as possible, which is very hard.
Ineefective outdated program for today's kids.

Review by : Shreekant
While the ideas are sound and would have worked in the 70s and may be in the 80s, todays kids live in a totally different world with expectations that are far reaching.
I spent countless hours listening to the program many many times and completing the survey as required. But it appears there seems to be some glitch in the print or scanning that deemed my survey incomplete and I am out of pocket on the refund promised.
While I was a good experience to reinforce my core belief system , which has not worked with my kid hence I was looking for an alternative, which this did not provide, and when it comes to helping our kids I guess a few hundred buck is not a big deal if it helps. This program did not meet that goal and frankly I feel taken for a very smooth ride.
We certainly appreciate the time and effort that you put into your Total Transformation Feedback Survey and are very sorry to hear that you did not qualify for a refund. Our records indicate that we received your survey, however there were some incomplete sections on two different pages. Though we do provide the opportunity for consumers to correct an incomplete survey to qualify for a refund, corrections cannot be made once the postmark date has passed per the terms printed clearly on the survey.
In regards to the content in The Total Transformation Program, our goal was to create the most effective program to help families who are struggling with their children’s behaviors. We understand that each family situation is unique and we’re quite confident that the program can work for most parents and most situations, however we also know that things can be discouraging when you are not seeing the results you had hoped for with the program. If you would like help working the tools in the program with your family, please contact our Parental Support Specialists. They’re trained extensively in The Total Transformation Program, and will be able to personally coach and support you in using the program with your family. Please don’t give up. You might still find success in using the program.
Very happy parent

Even though most people, including myself, may primarily think this program is for parents with children under 18, I found it very helpful in dealing with our adult daughter still living at home. We learned how to talk straight with her and take the emotion out of the conversation so that we could have a productive discussion. It's never too late to set boundaries in your own home with your own children, no matter what their age.

I purchased the program for my two granddaughters. I moved across the United States to live with my divorced son who has partial custody of his girls. Since I am the main caretaker during the week I was encountering disrespect, laziness and low self esteem in my granddaughters and wanted to instill some good life skills to deal with their future. I could not have done it without the support of the program and particularly the Parental Support Line. My son promised to work the program but almost 7 months later has yet to listen to a CD or make any effort to work the program. I do see a difference in my granddaughters and it is slow going but progress is still progress and I hope to make my granddaughters future brighter because of this program.

At first we were skeptical and then when we got the program and tried it! We love Total Transformation! It helped us to use our role as parents to help our children have more self control. It taught us a lot of self control and better ways to handle all kinds of situations on a daily basis,so that the situations had much better outcomes for us as well as our children. We gave our children tools to help them to control their tempers and life is better! And we got all our money back by doing it in a timely manor. We would highly recommend this program to any family!
Thank YOU, to Total Transformation

Whether you are or are not "The Mom", the Total Tranformation Program can and will change the obnoxious behaviors of the teens/kids in your life. It worked for us!! We followed the steps James guides you through, applied them. And were amazed and grateful for positive changes that transformed our stressful, chaotic family life into more loving relationships. This program proved itself many times over, a 5++; "thank you", and "thank you", James.

I have been using the Total Transformation Program with my sixteen year old son for about six weeks. It has not been easy, especially avoiding falling back into using ineffective parenting habits. I've come to realize that I must be "reprogrammed" before I can effect change in my son's behaviors. But it's working. Sure, I still expect my old son to emerge. And he does. But more and more infrequently. The cursing and damaging property ended during the second week. I will definitely continue with the Total Transformation Program. After ten and a half years, there is finally peace in my home!
