Parents Testimonials

Parent I Understand Better

I am more patient with my daughter, I can diffuse potentially difficult situations more easily, and listen more.

A Father Enlightened!

Since doing the course I don’t feel like I’ve ever kind of hit the panic button as I use to … I just didn’t know what was going on. I feel I’m very much in tune with him now, and I really enjoy that … I feel I’m more sensitive. I know now he likes to be close and touchy. And it’s just brilliant. I can pick up on that now.

Parent All has changed!

My daughter is a lot better at talking to me and we have a better relationship – everything has changed

Parent Much happier!

I have a much calmer, tender approach to parenting. I feel much, much happier and am enjoying parenthood more than I thought possible.

A Mother No 1 single way to parenting

I have learned that there’s not just one way of parenting, there isn’t a right way, as long as it’s good enough. It really has taught me and given me the confidence to be able to become a better mum

Parent This group is the best thing!

This group is the best thing that has happened to me and I would gladly come back to learn more

Parent Life Changing!

I think this course is brilliant, I want to use the word life-changing as so much has changed in such a short time.

Parent 'Eureka' moments!

This course has been an absolutely invaluable gift to me. It has and will change so many aspects of my life. I am undoubtedly a better parent and more rounded and fulfilled person as a result. Some aspects have literally been like ‘Eureka’ moments to me! I WISH I’d known all this years ago, but I am glad to have learnt it now at a crucial stage in my young children’s lives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
