Serving military families from around the world

Military families sacrifice greatly for our country. These brave families endure stressful and hazardous work environments, frequent relocations (relocating 10 times more often than civilian families and often far away from family and support systems), deployments, and long / frequent separations. They sacrifice employment and career opportunities along with access to greater resources. Our support can truly make a difference in the strength and quality of their family life.

I wish I had taken this course sooner! My husband and I were able to complete the course together and I’m very grateful we did because we are able to offer each other support in those frustrating moments.

This course gives you the confidence to start positive parenting regardless of where you are right now and to keep it up in a time when everyone has an opinion.  We realized we don’t have to butt heads unless us as parents lose control of our feelings. In those tough moments, we are now better equipped to respond instead of overreacting or acting out of anger. You know that feeling when your kids listen and things runs smoothly? After taking this course, I’m feeling very confident that we will have more of those days now.


I just finished up the Foundations course and WOW where to begin!  My husband just returned from a deployment, so needless to say life has been a little hectic!  This was my first deployment with 2 young children and it was HARD. Without a doubt our biggest struggle has been bedtime with our 3.5 year old.  I am so thankful for the approach Wendy laid out. I was amazed that in a few short days of using some of Wendy’s suggestions bedtime was so much easier! It is refreshing to feel like you’re giving your kids the tools they need to think for themselves and make good decisions.  I see myself coming back to the lessons over and over again and I whole hardheartedly recommend this Positive Parenting course.


The Foundations Course has been a real blessing to find right after a huge transition – a new country, a new house, and a new school meant that our family was in “survival mode”.  I wanted to get back to making more conscious parenting decisions. I even talked to my son’s new teacher about these strategies to help him transition to (another!) new school. I love that the Foundations Course gave me better ways to connect with and appreciate my son, rather than ramp up the parental “control”, so we could both manage all the feelings that a move brings.  The Foundations Course was also easy to work through at short intervals, this is GREAT for unpredictable military schedules.

How do I qualify for a free Foundations Curriculum?

If you are an active or reserve duty military family, add your name to our FSF Gives waitlist and we will contact you as soon as we open enrollment. Once we contact you, you will need to provide a copy of your current military/dependant I.D.

What is FSF doing with my collected personal information through the application process?

We use an active military/dependant I.D sent to us via email to verify the status of military service for the free Foundations Course. Once military status is verified this information will be deleted and NEVER shared or used for any other purposes.

How long will I have access to the Foundations Course through FSF Gives?

For life! The foundations course is yours to keep forever, so you have lifetime access for every stage of parenting.
