Who developed Life Skills 4 My Family?


These classes were developed by Dr. David Ricketts, in Calgary Alberta.

Life Skills 4 My Family began as two child group programs called Anger Busters and Confidence Builders that my partner and I developed and ran for 15 years in Calgary. Over 1000 Calgary children and their families participated in the programs. After 25 years of practice as a psychologist, I retired from active clinical practice in 2009. As a retirement project, I put together this in-home video based program so families could continue to benefit from learning these critical skills in a cost effective manner and without having to attend parent workshops and children’s groups.  Click for more information on my background.

Why should I trust some program listed on the internet?

You should be skeptical of anything you see on the internet! That’s why I only promote this program in Calgary. I live here and worked as a psychologist here for 25 years. Use the contact form and I will get back to you by phone or email. I encourage you to then call me for further information. You’ll be welcome to discuss your family’s needs and/or meet me in my home and inspect the program prior to buying.

I do not accept payments over the internet. Only cash or email money transfer at the time you pick up the program or order it over the phone or by email. If you buy but return the program within 30 days, I’ll give you a full refund (minus any mailing costs if I mailed you the program). The cost is extremely affordable for what you get – this is a retirement project for me, not the way I make a living.
