Raising a character-rich child is challenging, I know. I currently have two sons in college, a teenager, and a ten year old, and it has been my mission to raise them to know and love God, and embrace Godly character. It has not always been easy, but it has been worth all of the effort! Now I want you to have the same experience.
For nearly 10 years I have been sharing practical help and encouragement with families on my blog, MonicaSwanson.com. Last year I published Boy Mom: What Your Son Needs Most from You, and also launched the Boy Mom Podcast!
After all of these years, the topic of CHARACTER continues to come up more than any other with my readers and listeners. I love that parents desire to train their kids to embrace excellent character and I want to help! Considering everything I have learned and what I have found to be most important, I decided this course would be the best way to offer support and encouragement to parents who are eager to raise character-rich kids.
After months of hard word, everything is now in one place and we’re diving in deep: incredible resources, podcast-style interviews with experts, and more! CLICK HERE TO See the Course page and see a course overview.
Inside the course, we will discuss:

Module lessons include downloadable resources:

Better than Ever!
Over the summer, I opened the doors for 100 people to go through The Character Training Course before it officially launched. All 100 spots sold within 2 days, and after completing the course members offered valuable feedback.
Based on their suggestions, I have added several new resources to the course — including a module for parents with young kids and additional interviews about anger in parenting (with Wendy Speake, mom of three boys and author of Parenting Scripts and Triggers: Exchanging Parents’ Angry Reactions for Gentle, Biblical Responses) and parenting daughters (with Jonathan Pitts, father of four daughters, pastor, and co-author of She Is Yours and Emptied).
What Students Are Saying:
“This course is a must-have for parents and families. It is filled with valuable information, lessons and resources to help us navigate building character with our kids, no matter what age they are. Monica has such a light-hearted way of presenting information and so much knowledge to share. The resources are useful and can be used immediately. I thoroughly enjoyed taking this course!”
“The Character Training Course is packed full of priceless information, tips, encouraging quotes, relatable and resourceful information, fabulous interviews and thoughtful biblical verses that bring it all together. I will be revisiting this information again and again.”
“I cannot recommend Monica’s Character Training Course enough! As soon as I started it, I felt hopeful. She provides so much insight and wisdom. The interviews and bonus material are very helpful and encouraging. Monica is relatable and practical, but also wise and godly. Parenting is so important and I would not be a good steward if I just tried to figure it out on my own. My boys are worth this investment into their hearts and minds and lives.”
“This course is tremendously beneficial and every parent will gain so much confidence and encouragement after it is completed. Go for it, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!”
