Dear Wendy,
My wife and I get all your e-mails, and we have learned a lot of things from them. We look forward to applying it to our children. We have four children and it is really tough sometimes disciplining them. Thank for taking time to send us newsletters. God bless you and your family!

Using the G.O.L.D. Standard, Your Family Can Be A Success!
  • Gratitude
  • Obedience
  • Love / Respect
  • Discipline
  • Service

“There comes a time when you’ve got to put away the Game Boys, turn off the television set, put away the iPod, and get your kids down to work.” –

Thomas L. Friedman, The World is Flat, Parenting, pg 303

I just wanted to write and thank you!   We are already looking on in amazement as our children eagerly try to earn tickets and not lose them! What can I say, but WOW! Most importantly we haven't had to yell, and this is quite important when trying to save the nerves and stay calm!

Dear Reader:

A few years ago Rick and I realized that something needed to be done to increase the love and harmony in our home!  We were tired of listening to constant complaining, whining, arguing, and yelling amongst our children!  We were sick of having to ask our children five times to do something and we were tired of nagging, cajoling, bribing, yelling, and giving time-outs!

This is when we started formulating a parenting program called “The G.O.L.D. Standard.”  When we started this program, it was as if a transformation had taken place in our home!   Our children started becoming accountable for their own actions and became more cooperative and willing to work.  The amount of whining and arguing decreased dramatically! 

We have been revising and improving the program ever since that time. We started to have many friends and family members ask us how they could start this program in their own homes.  The response was so positive that we decided to put together a book and website so that we could share the G.O.L.D. Standard with others!  We hope this program is as beneficial to you as it has been to us! 



Rick and Wendy Jensen

I am grateful for the sound and practical advice based on godly, biblical principles set out in your GOLD standard and am very eager to advice parents accordingly. I work as a psychologist in a practice where we deal a lot with children and their parents.  I am excited to use your practical ideas in guiding parents to strategies of positive parenting, built on a foundation of love and respect!

Blessings to you and your family.

Just recently my mom introduced me to the G.O.L.D. Standard and let me tell you this is awesome!

No, I have no affiliation with this website or the creators of this program, I'm just an excited parent that has read through the book offered on the site and applied it in my family and, oh boy, this really works!

In one weekend we had far fewer tantrums and far more willingness to be helpful around the house.  It's great to have a neutral system in place that my children don't feel that we, the parents, are directly threatening their "fun time" and or privileges.

I can't thank you enough for starting this, and making it available for other people to apply into their own families!

Hi Wendy,

I wanted to share with you that I've initiated your G.O.L.D. program with my 3 children and WOW, what results!!!  My 11 yr old, who was VERY motivated did so many things to earn his tickets.  I gave all the kids 5 tickets to start out with and made them each a folder so they can keep track of how they earn and lose tickets.  My son was so excited to get started with this program - more so than me!!!

He earned his first prize, which were army men, and was so happy - and I was thrilled!!!!  I am so excited how well this is working and giving them the responsibility and ownership of helping out with the family.  I really want to thank you and Rick so much for opening up a HUGE door for my family personally to happiness, love and gratitude.  I am just so floored with what this program has my kids doing and mostly that they are happy about it – no whining, complaining or any of that, just like you said!!!

Hi Wendy,

I don't make much time for the Internet. However when I take the time to read a message from First Rate Family, I know I need to make the time and learn and appreciate parenting as it is only this day today and no longer.
