What is PARENTING POWER?
This is an educational and experiential parenting program that addresses every aspect of parenting and leadership. (It’s important to note that this program benefits EVERY adult because it covers such a wide range of topics which we note in more detail below!) Through this program, you can learn critical knowledge and understanding of the human body as God intended it to work and function, and why and how environmental factors and cultural behaviors, some of which most of us are completely unaware of, can negatively impact the overall health and wellness of each of us. Just having the knowledge and understanding provided through this program can help you become a better YOU, in everything you do and in every relationship you have with others.
We believe this program is as close as you are going to get to having just that! It’s a one stop shop to learn critical skills and knowledge that will better equip you and your family to avoid problems or change directions before life with your child(ren), or others, gets out of control. Some of our clients are in the very beginning stages of raising a family and want to gain guidance and insight that will help them have a better grasp on the reality of parenthood, especially in today’s culture and society. For many parents, they are learning as they go, trying to be as good, or maybe even better, than their parents were for them. Unfortunately, the majority of our families that come into this program often come from desperation due to roadblocks in addressing physical/mental inabilities, physical/mental abuse or trauma, or an array of other behavioral issues. In our Parenting Power program, parents gain a fresh perspective, new insights to parenting do’s and dont’s, knowledge they need to find balance, and tools they need to create peace. Parents learn that they can restore the natural order within a family dynamic (no matter your child’s age)!
Whatever your reason for stopping by to learn more about our program, know that you are not alone in your parenting journey.

As you continue your parenting journey, also know that we are praying for you and your family, whatever the circumstance, and we hope that we can be a part of your parenting journey!
Parenting Power – Adult Education
The adult portion of this program is applicable to anyone, and while we do provide parenting education and support, we also provide education on personal health and well-being, which applies to every adult. In this 16-week program adults learn about the following:
Extensive resources are available, such as a nutrition program, and the availability of an experienced sociologist who has worked with child behavior extensively, and written, implemented, and taught college courses about all of the subjects addressed in the program. Most of this program is a structured self-paced series that you will take mostly online. As you progress through the various sections of the online program, individual one-on-one sessions will be scheduled in person or through virtual web meetings to address specific needs, questions and concerns.
Khamrada’s Kids Power(Note: Parents wishing to register their child(ren) in this part of the program, must also register & participate themselves or another parent of the child in The Parenting Power Program: Package 1 above)
Khamrada’s Kids Power is an additional service we provide which compliments the Parenting Power Program. In this program, your individual child or children will receive a full in-depth growth assessment. This assessment will identify stages of your child’s physical and mental development, address specific concerns, and give you a better understanding of your child. We start from the ground up with foundational understanding, such as identifying learning styles, causes of specific behaviors, and healthy natural boundaries, respect and so much more. In this program, we schedule additional individual training sessions for you and your child. These are a series of in-person and web-based sessions. The in-person sessions involves interaction with horses, learning how to do exercises on the horses and at home, riding horses, caring for the horses, and several other non-horse related activities that are shown in research to promote emotional intelligence, health, and well-being. While participating in this program, your child(ren) will learn the proper techniques for important developmental exercises and other activities that will help them become balanced both mentally and physically, which in turn will help them in their natural development. The Kids Power program compliments the Parenting Power program because it provides individual assessments and training for your specific child’s needs.
There is science in the methods we use! ‘In a study published in February 2017, researchers were able to prove that riding horses improves the cognitive ability of children (or any person), making it a workout for the brain as well. To sum up their results, it was found that the vibrations produced by the horses while riding can activate the sympathetic nervous system, which enhances learning in children. This brain boost in cognitive ability relates to the brain-based skills of improved learning, memory, and problem-solving.’ (https://www.blueridgeoutdoors.com/go-outside/horse-riding-proven-improve-cognitive-ability-children/)
What we do in the Power Programs goes beyond just riding a horse! Through experiential exercises, we teach you and your children methods that stimulate and trigger natural healing, learning, and growth as our bodies were designed to do.
If you want to participate in this program, but live too far away to participate in the in-person sessions, we offer the entire package virtually. While riding horses is the ideal method for producing optimal results, there are several other ways to receive the same scientific results using other resources. In the application process, we will review resources that are available in your area, and develop an individual plan to ensure you have the tools you need to still gain all the same benefits.
We are working very hard to package both the Parent Power and Kids Power Programs for other leaders to use and implement at their own facilities. Whether you work with families, adults, or children, the knowledge gained in this program can be applied to every situation. Our hope is to provide an individual training package that is tailored specifically for your facility and group. As a group leader, you will receive individual training that will help you facilitate the program to your entire team. As you and your team progress through the training program, specific virtual training sessions are scheduled to address specific issues and develop procedures and methods molded just for you!
Do you sometimes find yourself questioning your parenting skills and abilities? Do you wonder if there is more you can do to help yourself, your child(ren), and your family? Does your child’s behavior negatively impact you and your family’s ability to have joy on a regular basis? If the answer to any of this is yes, then please take a moment to watch this short video testimonial from parents that have participated in the program with their children.
