About Back to the Basics™ Program (BTTB)

The Back to the Basics Program (BTTB) & The Points Method® consist of research based strategies and interaction tools that enables teachers to improve classroom management, modify and redirect negative student behavior, adjust attitudes, and empower parents through the consistent use of best practices to help schools meet various mandated requirements.

The CEO & Founder Dr. Daron D. Barker of Parentpoints, Inc developed BTTB to address improving student behavior and academic performance through consistency. This program is formulated to break through the barriers that restrict clear communication and progress between students, their teachers and their parents. It guides adults in setting clear expectations for positive behavior and establishes clear consequences for negative behavior. It also establishes guidelines for managing this behavior in a consistent, balanced approach while utilizing life skills, classroom management, and parenting skills. This motivates children to act in a positive, responsible manner; thereby producing children who are intrinsically driven, well-adjusted and successful in life!

What is The Points Method®?

The Points Method® System is a methodical approach devised to improve the relationship between children and adults
through positive behavior and clearly defined best practices delivered in a consistent manner to get results. The 5 Steps to Success are acheived by consistently doing the following:

  • Step 1 - Reward and Praise
  • Step 2 - Reinforcement and Encouragement
  • Step 3 - Life Skills Lessons
  • Step 4 - Guidance and Compassion
  • Step 5 - Balanced Discipline

Consistency is driven by utilizing the points incentive tools. It drives the overall program and promotes the effective
use of the 5 Steps to Success. The ultimate objective of this program is to restore balance and/or maintain
The Generational Order

What is Generational Order™?

Generational Order is a term coined by Dr. Daron D. Barker to describe the natural law that exists on a primary level that regulates the continuous reoccurring cycles of procreation and manages the acquisition, circulation and preservation of knowledge for the sole purpose of maintaining balance in the natural processes that makes human life successful and progressively better with each generation. In short, when we work with nature, nature works with us, and when we work against nature, nature works against us.

“Parents have forgotten the basics, or they have simply been convinced [that] they are inadequate and incapable of getting the job done,” says Barker. “Hence, the responsibility of training and guiding the child becomes everybody else’s responsibility. That is why schools are suffering. Instead of teaching academics, they have to teach what used to be taught at home.”

Let’s face it. Our children don’t come with instruction booklets when they are born and we definitely don’t get a guide to good discipline as they get older. Nonetheless, the possibility of having to deal with bad behavior naturally comes along with being a parent. When it becomes a real problem, we do what we think is right to resolve it, but many times end up feeling frustrated and confused when nothing seems to work. You feel you’ve tried everything; you’ve read the books; you’ve taken the classes; you’ve even consulted with your pediatrician for advice. Dealing with this situation can be stressful for both you and the children and often begins a vicious cycle that causes a severe breakdown in the emotional bond you share. What other alternatives do you have?

This program addresses these issues at home and in the classroom and guarantees results through methodologies that both parents and teachers can implement easily and immediately. With over 10 years of research and development our program mirrors and supports the findings of many researchers as published in major medical journals and other related documentation published over the past 20 years. Dr. George Jones, a psychologist from Clemson University says “One should not overlook the potential of this training program for primary prevention of problems in social adjustment.” Learn more about research & results.
