Leading Your Child to Success

Changing the Course of Your Family

We are all grateful for the children in our lives. We are hopeful their futures hold joy and success. But, how do we support them now to ensure they find that success in the future? Let Birth2Work show you how.

Leading Your Child to Success (LYCTS) is an engaging online course for everyone regularly involved in the life of a child. The principles and practices we establish are applicable whether you have very young children, teenagers, or grown children with kids of their own.

Who Should Take This Course:
  • Parents (expecting or those already with children any age, from infants to adults)
  • Grandparents, Aunts, and Uncles;
  • Teachers, counselors, or anyone in the service of children


Course Description:

From the comfort of your own home, and on your own time, take your virtual place at the table alongside eight diverse attendees of the Leading Your Child to Success course!

Organized in brief modules, the Birth2Work co-founders, Elane V. Scott and Rick Stephens, will lead you through a multi-step process for creating your own plan, with actionable steps, to confidently lead yourself and your family into the future.

Each module consists of a presentation of new ideas by Rick and Elane, supported by a thoughtful exercise for you to complete on your time. Most topics are then brought up in discussion around the table to learn how the group has interpreted the material and plans to implement the topic at home.

We’ve created a stunning handbook with over 150 pages of exercises and extended material, giving you exclusive access to 30+modules of course content, included free when you enroll. At the completion of the course, your handbook will contain your personalized plan for leading your family to success!
