Learn More about Family ColorWorks
ColorWorks Circle presents a variety of skills that will teach you how to end tantrums, diffuse conflicts, stop repetitive negative behaviors, discipline effectively in every situation, and improve communication between you and your child. By becoming a member of ColorWorks Circle, you will learn how to utilize our unparalleled methods of parenting within your home. The ColorWorks membership program begins with you discovering your strengths and weaknesses based on your own unique Color type. By gaining insight into what stresses you out and learning how to acknowledge your own stress behaviors, you will immediately find that frustration levels lower in your family unit. ColorWorks members then learn how to identify their child’s unique Color type and begin to examine the differences between the 16 different personality types. This process emphasizes the importance of respecting one another’s individual qualities and motivators, which leads to open communication and harmony within the family. Next, members learn how to utilize our innovative ColorWorks Four Skills Approach: “ASK-BE-DO then FOLLOW THROUGH,” an individualized method of parenting that is geared toward your child’s unique Color combination. In the final modules, you will gain new discipline skills based on your child’s age and Color type that will help you discover the way your child naturally regulates their self-discipline. The goal of ColorWorks Circle is to teach you how to communicate effectively and to foster the development of four key principles within your child: compassion, accountability, gratitude, and responsibility. Our program advocates a “choices not chances” approach toward establishing self-discipline and we stress the importance of personal accountability within every child. We strive to empower families to become an effective team of communicators who facilitate the growth of a healthy and positive family atmosphere.

Your child’s personality type fully manifests during their teen years, however they do not possess strong coping mechanisms and therefor appear as a raw version of their Color type. Your teen is expected to maintain positive relationships, handle complex social situations, deal with peer pressure, do well in school, participate in sports or extracurriculars, and more on a daily basis. With all they have going on, it is not surprising that teens experience high levels of frustration and occasionally make poor choices. Because they have few coping mechanisms, your teen’s unique, Color-specific stress behaviors often appear as extreme versions of the same behaviors seen in adulthood. This is what causes your teen to seem overly dramatic, harsh, disrespectful, or completely aloof. ColorWorks Circle is here to help you manage those exaggerated behaviors in a positive and healthy way while teaching your teen how to handle their frustration with methods that are most effective for their personality type. We tell parents to imagine their teenager as a car with no steering wheel; they generally know what they want and can clearly express what they don’t want, but they lack the ability to “steer” their words and actions tactfully when trying to get their needs met. Our membership program encourages teens and parents to collaborate together while building the four key principles: gratitude, compassion, responsibility, and accountability. The parenting modules will allow you to help your teen construct an internal steering wheel. This provides them critical insight into what stress management techniques will work best for them based on their Color type and will offer them strategies for decisions making. As a program member, you will gain a deeper level of understanding about the inner workings of your teen’s mind that will allow you to help them discover what their innate strengths and weaknesses are. With this knowledge, your teen will be able to recognize what success looks like for them based on their Color type, which in turn will allow them to achieve the inner peace they are yearning for. Once your teen recognizes and is held accountable for their personality’s perks and pitfalls they will naturally begin to implement changes. Because teens are relatively self-focused and enjoy learning about who they are as an individual, joining ColorWorks Circle while you are raising a teen is the perfect opportunity to redirect and guide their personal growth. You can save your child years of painful trial and error by helping them to understand what their strengths and weaknesses are from an early age and can give them the opportunity to develop healthy coping mechanisms.

At ColorWorks, we coach parents to become effective communicators who foster the development of four key principles during their child’s formative years. However, building the four key principles of gratitude, compassion, responsibility, and accountability within our adult relationships is extremely important as well. By living out these principles in front of your child, you are demonstrating how to maintain appropriate boundaries within successful relationships. The journey through ColorWorks Circle begins with parents discovering their own strengths and weaknesses based on their Color type. This insight provides answers to “what makes us tick” and “what ticks us off” as an individual. Once you see your parenting partner as the unique individual they are hardwired to be, it becomes easier to extend them grace and understanding during challenging parenting moments. Later modules will help parents identify their child’s unique Color type. This process often illuminates if parents and children have opposing color combinations that contain inherent conflict. Possessing this information offers you, the parenting team, insight into why Color-based conflict arise. When a couple understands their unique perks and pitfalls as well as the innate differences they may have with one or more of their children, they can bring balance and harmony to their relationship by supporting each other’s shortcomings while amplifying one another’s strengths. You may feel you and your partner are complete opposites when it comes to parenting; maybe one of you is a firm disciplinarian while the other prefers to talk through misbehavior. Data has shown that we seek our opposite Color type when forming relationships. At ColorWorks, we show parents that their differences, no matter how extreme they may be, should not be viewed as hurdles to overcome; in fact, it’s a huge advantage! When all four Colors are represented in one parenting team, that team becomes what we refer to as “the complete parent.” This couple has the advantage of being able to identify with their child no matter what Color combination their child may be. Let us show you the advantages of your unique parenting dynamic and help you begin the journey towards understanding your parenting partner on an entirely new level.

This process is inspired! It works! Here's the best "how to parent" I've experienced. Best of all, this process will continue to work as our children age. This is a hands-on how-to that can be easily understood and applied. Our home was previously filled with raised voices and disparaging looks at particularly our son. Now, we're providing more information for him and divert much of his anger and rage. We have the words to use when he needs to be corrected. Best of all, we're enjoying each other's company and our relationship has improved vastly. I am amazed and extremely grateful.

I think having another tool in your parenting toolbox makes you prepared and ready for anything your children will need from you. Parenthood is emotional and messy and using colors to help simplify emotional needs and physical needs is brilliant! Family Color Works has created an approach to our son that is rewarding, relaxing, and fun for our family. We enjoy our son instead of reacting to our son. It has also helped our marriage relationship as well. We are team parents now!

I would highly recommend Shannon's Color Works class! It is fun, upbeat, very informative, and helps us understand ourselves, our family members, and our friends, and how we relate to them. Everything she teaches in the class works! Better communication and better understanding of each other. Blow ups have been defused and when there is a meltdown, it doesn't last very long. I feel like we are all happier because of what I have learned and implemented from this class!
