About Sarah Wood:

I am a Certified Parenting Educator and former Elementary School teacher in San Diego. I have been happily married since 2004 and am the proud mother of 4 boys: Gavin, Benjamin, Dylan and Ryan. My passion for helping friends and family inspired me to become a RCB instructor. Through my courses and workshops, I have seen many parents achieve great success with the techniques that I have taught them.

I first took the Redirecting Children’s Behavior course from my aunt, Susie Walton, before I had my first child. I thought I would be the perfect parent with all of these tools under my belt. I soon found out that parenting was a lot harder than it looked! Every day was a new challenge with my family and I struggled with being the mother that I wanted to be. I often re-read Kathryn Kvols book, Redirecting Children’s Behavior, which reminded me of the simple tools to be a successful parent.

After the birth of my third son, I decided to become a RCB instructor. I wanted to spread the strategies that were working for me with friends, and also to keep the RCB techniques in the forefront of my mind. My kids are not perfect, nor am I, but having an arsenal of effective parenting tools has helped to make my journey of being a mother an amazing and positive experience.
