Systematic Training for Effective Parenting, STEP, began in 1976 when Don Dinkmeyer Sr. and Gary D. McKay expanded a successful book, Raising a Responsible Child, from a book study discussion group.

Since then, STEP has become the most recognized and used parent education materials in North America. With translations in Japanese, German, French and Spanish, it is also making a worldwide impact on parent education.

STEP books have reached more than 4,000,000 parents and counting!
