The course was created by Nicky and Sila Lee who have worked with couples and families for over 20 years and speak regularly on parenting. They are co-authors of 'The Marriage Book' and “The Parenting Book” and also created The Marriage Course, The Marriage Preparation Course and The Parenting Teenagers Course. While the course is based on Christian principles, it is relevant and helpful for any parent with or without a Christian faith or church background.

Building strong foundations 
Love in action 
Setting boundaries
