What Others are Saying

I liked the support and adult time. Also, I have been held more accountable for my own actions and it has made her (2 year old daughter) become more patient with me as I am more patient with her.
I like everything about the class it was fun and very helpful.
It got me thinking of what to expect as my 9 year old becomes a teenager. This early preparation is a HUGE help and resource.
It was a good and fun experience.
It really made me step back and examine a lot of different things in my own parenting.
Attending the group as one of the best things I've ever done and I enjoyed it. I wish it wasn't over already.
I use the skills I learned in group to help me when it gets hard.
The way class was taught "I understood"
I liked hearing the different views of other parents.
The environment was always positive.
I liked getting different experiences from other people and using the concepts in my everyday life.
I liked the toolbox and I liked thinking about what I want for my children down the road.
