Class List

Class List

The following list is a detailed list of the various topics Debbie has researched.  For personal quotes on Debbie’s speaking please check quotes on Debbie’s events

All classes are two hours long and include a study manual.  Classes can be tailored for time constraints or demographics.  Classes can also be combined or designed to fit the needs of your event.  Debbie will also shorten any class, include humorous stories and design a 30 minute talk specifically for your group.

 * A practicum is a class that includes a certain amount of time to actually practice the skills that have been taught.

Designing a seminar is Easy.  To schedule a one time class, simply call or e-mail Ron (ron@themommydetective.com) Debbie’s husband and manager.  Debbie is available as a featured speaker or as faculty during a general seminar.  Debbie can relate to smaller groups as well as larger ones.  Prices will be determined by several criteria including traveling expenses.

To schedule a seminar that features any of the following classes, please  e-mail Ron with your choices.  Debbie will build your plan and call you with her ideas for an exciting event. 

For example, if your group consists of very young mothers and retired grandmothers; you may want to schedule a two-hour class that covers both interests.  You could combine Developmental stages of children with How to be a loving Grandparent.  One hour would be devoted to each subject.  Both ages will leave the class with  new  knowledge.

 If your group is small, such as a MOPs group, with  close demographics you can arrange for more information to be covered.  For example, if your group consists of mainly mothers with children of various ages, a two-hour class might include information from, Myth of the terrible two’s, Basic discipline, and Building your child’s self-esteem.  Since these topics are large and involved, combining more than three might be difficult.  When combining classes be aware that time constraints will cause a loss of some information. 

Debbie will work with you to make your seminar or class an exciting event for every participant.  We look  forward to working with you.
