What parents are saying

I have a whole bookshelf full of never-read parenting books. It’s hard to find the time and mental energy to read them, much less to employ the practices. Here, I have dedicated a block of time to learning the theory behind this approach and to practicing the techniques. - Erica S.

The classes create a real sense of community within the parent group, where there is no judgement about our parenting mistakes, just a recognition that we all have the best of intentions, and we all have struggles along the way. - Mary P.

I really value the opportunity to talk about the ‘trial and error’ of parenting with other parents, and to learn from the shared experiences of the group. – Marta H.
