Raising A Thinking Child  (RTC) is an evidence-based parenting program for parents and caregivers of children 4 to 7 years that was developed and researched by Dr. Myrna Shure. RTC has demonstrated effectiveness in developing interpersonal cognitive problem-solving skills in young children, improving parenting skills and parent-child communication, and in decreasing both impulsive and inhibited behaviors in young children.

RTC has been listed as a model evidence-based program on the Strengthening America’s Families  and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention  model programs websites.
