What is an online class?

Online classes allow you to learn from home, on-the-go, or in your pajamas. Once you enroll in an online class, you get short videos and audio packed full of valuable information taught by experts in child and adolescent development, parenting guides and exercises that help you translate your learning into practical strategies you can use today, and online support via live Q and As and social communities. You get lifetime access to the course content so you can always review, revisit, and reengage when it works for you!


How does it work?

There are a couple of different ways that you can take Spark & Stitch online classes. As an individual, we open enrollment for people to join in the course periodically throughout the year and offer “live support” as you move through the content. This means that while you get access to the videos, audio, and downloads to work through on your own schedule, you also get access to Dr. Dave and/or Erin for live Q&As and support in an online community during the class.

We will be opening enrollment for the class CONNECTED on September 18th so be sure to check back and grab your seat!

You can also bring our classes as a “self study” to your community group, book club, corporation, or school. This means that your group can enjoy group discounts and move through the course on your own timeline. Learn more about group discounts. 

Who teaches your classes?

Dr. David Walsh and Erin Walsh teach Why Do They Act That Way together and Erin Walsh teaches CONNECTED: How to Show Up For Your Kids in the Digital Age. Learn more about their story and the work they do.

I've already read your books and love them and/or I've seen you speak. Should I take the classes too?

We think so! While the classes draw on some of the same information that we share in our books and/or presentations, we’ve carefully designed these classes to deliver the most valuable information in a succinct and memorable way and to immediately put that into action with new exercises, tips, and tools. You will also have access to an online community for support and have access to Dr. Dave and Erin for additional support.

I want to bring this class to my school, employer, church or community group. What do I do?

We are thrilled to offer group packages that allow you to bring support, insight, and strategies on parenting to your school, company or community organization. Learn more about group discounts and ways to take this class with your community!

“I have already recommended this course to several parents! It is fantastic, comprehensive and accessible. It also offered loads of reflection exercises (so much of parenting is an inside job, reflecting on our own family of origin and baggage) and actionable tools. So great.”

Sarah, Parent

“This is the teen ECFE class that I wished for, full of simply presented insight into the teen brain geared towards a better (and happier!) way to parent through connection. Dr. Walsh and Erin present real (not idealized) techniques. They recognize that there will be bumps and bruises along the way and offer guidelines to help identify when typical behaviors & emotions cross over into concerning ones. It is clear that they have a real passion for helping parents and a deep affection for teens.”

Naomi, Parent

“I have always looked forward to raising teenagers, albeit a little nervous also. But it’s different and scarier when it’s our own kiddos. Your reminders helped: She is doing exactly what she’s supposed to be doing, and right on time. It’s the process of letting go that is so gutting. She is becoming her own person – and we’re growing as much as she is. Your class is helping!!”
