What parents have said…

A step dad said that the input he had received the previous week from the course helped him keep his cool and brought a more favourable outcome with a 12 year old step daughter.

A single Mum made an appointment with her 15 year old son as we suggested and had had a far more favourable discussion with him than would previously have been the case.

  • An end to the arguing and yelling!
  • It saved our lives
  • Simple, sane, effective
