Testimonials:

format_quote I would definitely recommend this workshop to other parents, “kind&firm” proves to be a great formula; next step - signing up my husband to the workshop :-)

format_quote This training is a good way to stop feeling guilty in my parent role and it offers useful tools to use in my daily life.

format_quote So useful to have the group of parents to share with; much more powerful than to read the book on my own!

format_quote I am not a big fan of role play but I have to say that they were very useful. It helped me to feel, understand and be able to apply the tools with my children in real life after the workshop.
