From our Total Transformation reviews we found it is a popular family help program from James Lehman. According to his web site, James Lehman is a child therapist with 30 years of experience working with troubled youth. His approach is about teaching parents techniques to help their kids deal with their problems. He also focuses on short term consequences to help teens see immediate results for their actions. The Total Transformation approach involves all members of the family. It teaches parenting skills that seem like common sense to some parents, but may be very helpful to others. It aims to give parents responses to common problems with teens.

The Total Transformation program promises a lot. It focuses on teens who are argumentative and defiant, and on stopping fights between family members and other negative teen behavior, including lying and stealing. It also claims to help with substance abuse and poor motivation at school. The program’s web site claims that changes can start the first day of using the program, but it notes that results vary by family.

The Total Transformation program also offers a customer support hotline to give parents extra guidance. This hotline costs parents an extra monthly fee if they wish to use it. Currently the hotline is available from 8 AM to 10 PM on weekdays and 10 AM to 6 PM on weekends.

The big question for parents is if the Total Transformation program will work for them. The program’s web site notes that results will vary. The program is very popular, and parents who do some research and ask around will find that it gets a full range of responses. Some Total Transformation reveiws indicate that parents and families seem to get great results from the program, while others get no results or feel that it makes the problems worse. Parents should talk to others about the program, especially those with similar problems and family dynamics, and find out what they liked or didn’t like about it.

Some things for parents to consider about The Total Transformation program:

  • It requires patience. Some ads may promise a quick fix, but the whole program is meant to take 7 weeks.
  • It may not the best solution for very troubled teens. The program’s web site states that the program is not intended for children with some serious disabilities.
  • Some critics think that the methods are outdated, and may cause some teens to feel disrespected and to rebel more.
  • Some parents say it just doesn’t work for them, or that it is too time intensive.

The Total Transformation program costs about $300 new, and includes CDs, DVDs, and a workbook. There is a 30-day return policy, so parents can try the program out and return it if they don’t like it. Many parents have complained, however, that it was hard to get their refund. The program may take longer than 30 days to decide if it’s working, but the company is pretty strict about returns needing to occur within 30 days. If they do decide to try the product and return it, the customer should be aware that they will have to pay for shipping both ways.
