What participents are saying

“I love working with the parents who take our Positive Discipline Workshop for Parents of Teenagers. The sessions are full of laughter, tears and a lot of sharing. By the end of our sessions, the parents consistently state that they have more skills, feel better about their parenting and know that they now have a group of people with whom they feel connected.
