About Us

Kudos For Families

We are very happy you are here!  We have tons of resources to help you have the family you have always wanted.  We draw heavily on the work of parenting expert, James Jones and the parenting philosophies he taught in his “Let’s Fix the Kids!” program that has had a major impact on thousands of families.  We also draw the best from positive psychology, mindfulness, cognitive behavior therapy, and family systems theory. Results from what has been learned from thousands of families and scientific research are incorporated into the presented information.  As a private, non-profit organization, our goal is to help as many individuals and families as we can by providing them with the information and tools they need to have happy, flourishing families!

For Your Kids

Kudos for Kids and Kudos for Tots
Incentive programs for kids that are a wacky combination of a job chart, budgeting program, values teaching, love building and goal setting all wrapped up in a fun game. Kids absolutely LOVE Kudos for Kids and even ask for more work to do! Gotta love that!
You
A parent who knows what he or she is doing and can offer them the best environment and opportunity to grow, thrive and succeed in life as responsible, happy individuals.

We are people of faith and this program is based on Christian principles. We work under the belief that everyone knows basic right from wrong, such as that it is wrong to kill another human being or even that it is wrong to scream at your kids. When you study about or hear a correct principle, you will know it is right and it will feel good. We believe that no matter what a parent’s beliefs about God or the universe whether he or she is a person of faith or not, this program will be effective as it is based on sound principles that stand the test of time. The concepts in this program, when applied deliberately, consistently and with love will have a major impact on the lives of your family members.

Meet Our Team

James J. Jones

Founder and Owner of "Let's Fix the Kids!"

James is an honorary member of our team as we draw extensively upon his principles and teachings. James is the owner and president of the Familyhood Education Foundation, Family Impact, Parenting Solutions and “Let’s Fix the Kids!”. For over 30 years he traveled throughout the U.S. and Canada, taught at Brigham Young University's Education week for 25 years. Using humor and anecdotes, he taught parents ways to curtail their children’s rebellion, fighting, arguing, and whining and how to raise responsible, cooperative, hardworking, happy kids. He deeply impacted and helped save thousands of families. James has an M.S. in Marriage and Family Therapy.

In his words: “My wife, Lillie, and I raised four beautiful children who have excelled in sports, school, music, etc. Three of our kids made good choices in their lives and we thought we were the world’s best parents. Then, tragically, some older kids introduced our youngest son to drugs. As we waded through a hellish nightmare of police, jail, drug programs, counselors, and psychologists we wondered where we had gone wrong. Through hundreds of hours of individual, family and group counseling, I found that I knew very little about raising a family, and realized that good parenting didn't just happen; that parenting is a science based upon correct principles. I went back to school and earned a Masters degree in Marriage, Family and Child Therapy. With this knowledge, I was able to help our son. I then made it my life’s mission to help others. That experience, combined with the information and data from studies, along with the thousands of hours of individual and family counseling I have given, helped me in developing my incredibly powerful parenting program, ”Let’s Fix the Kids!”.
