What Others are Saying

Easy schedules and easy conversations and activities.
I added more things for togetherness in bedtime routine. We talk about how great or not great or day was.
I now pay more attention to my children and when they talk. They see I am more interested in them.
I liked understanding what my goals are for me and my child. I liked learning different strategies with the toolbox. I have become more positive and I'm really trying to understand my daughter.
I liked everything; from acting out role plays to talking with others. It impacted my daughter a lot, now she is playing and learning a lot.
I liked hearing the different views of other parents.
The instructors very knowledgeable and put information in a fashion that was familiar and personable.
I liked the toolbox and I liked thinking about what I want for my children down the road.
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 now take more time to care for myself so I can be less stressed and figure out motives behind certain behaviors.
The way class was taught "I understood"
It was a good and fun experience.
