Reviews from Parents & Participants

I would love to continue this course… Reviewing and going deeper into all the topics makes me a better mother. Thank you so much!

It has been amazing, opened up my mind and my heart. I would love to take more classes.

These are the kinds of tools that are so helpful.

This has been a great experience and the shared tools are extremely valuable for this day to day journey. Thanks!

Being a parent is hard. Our kids are the most important things we have and we want to be our best, but we are not perfect. This program provides great tools that really work. Attending a course is far more enduring than just reading a book, because you get to share with other parents and have time to think things over and over.

Great class. Marjie is truly a gifted facilitator. Thank you!

The leader was awesome. She really has the skills and competencies as well as proven know-how to provide us not only with an interesting theory but then supported it with real life examples and how-to ideas. I would definitely enjoy receiving further training on related topics.

Love it! This helped a great deal discovering more ways to be a better parent.
