A Message from the President and Founder
We have experienced a number of changes since our inception in 1996. Yet, the mission and the unshaken commitment to the children of America have not changed. My wife Barbara and I have spent much of our adult life sharing our vision of parenthood with countless groups of people across the United States

As a direct result of the generosity and vision of our son Drew Bledsoe the Parenting With Dignity™ curriculum, is available to every parent. The dream we share is that The Parenting With Dignity® program serve as an invaluable resource to all people who desire a world in which respect for others, and especially children, is a way of life.

I hope that you will become part of making this dream a reality. Please consider becoming an agent for change.  Order a set of videotapes, hold parenting classes in your community; and make a tax-deductible donation to our organization. Together we can change the world.

Who We Are

Parenting With Dignity®, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, was established in 1996 as a parent education organization that disseminates information on all aspects of raising children capable of making responsible decisions. Our mission is to improve the lives of children by promoting and teaching effective parenting skills.

Mac Bledsoe, founder and chief spokesman for Parenting With Dignity, lectures to parenting organizations, youth groups, and in schools and churches across America. Mr. Bledsoe and the Parenting With Dignity curriculum has been featured on the TODAY Show, ABC's 20/20 television show, and on numerous national and local radio and television programs.  Robyn Berndt of the Washington State Superior Court-Juvenile Court Division says,

"Mac (Bledsoe) has a way of connecting with people that makes them feel special and valued. He gives people, young and old alike, a sense of hope and confidence that they can improve their lives. His parenting curriculum is used in our schools, churches, detention centers, and even in private homes. It is one of the most valuable resources in my library here at Yakima County Juvenile Court. Our community owes a great deal of gratitude for the good work Mac has done and continues to do for our parents and young people."

The Parenting With Dignity curriculum presents effective techniques for raising responsible, independent children. PWD advocates permitting children make some of their own decisions, and to experience the consequences early on, so that they can act responsibly when alone, and become more independent when they grow older. PWD teaches parents and caregivers to rethink their approach to discipline, punishment and empowerment.  Fundamental to the Parenting With Dignity curriculum is a focus on developing parenting skills that help to address many of the child abuse causes perpetrated by inexperienced and unprepared parents.
