Thanks you for your generosity! Our times together are always invaluable. Finding you and learning from your incredible expertise has lightened the load of my special child. If you ever doubt your significance on this planet, just remember you’ve helped a family create a wonderful life with a stack of odds against them.
Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge, wisdom, experience, and humor with us! Your work with parents is very important and I appreciate your working with us as a school. We are much better for it!
Thanks for the information you shared on sibling differences and friendships. I learned many valuable tips I am eager to put into good use!
I recently attended you workshop Misbehavior Is Important Work for Children for the second time, and this time brought my husband. Your comments on how parents a generation ago did not have the information on child development that we do today really helped him put his memories of how he was treated as a child into perspective. Now rather than thinking of his parents as mean-spirited adults, he is able to see them as less informed. The difference in his approach with our children now is simply amazing. ‘Thank you’ seems a trivial phrase for the paradigm shift you have provided to us as a family. Please keep up your wonderful work.
Thanks for meeting with us for a consultation on sleep. In just two days, we have seen bedtime become transformed, just as you said it could! Our son is sleeping through the night in his own bed, and he loves the Calm Down Box! My husband didn’t believe we would ever have couple time again, and now for the first time in 5 years, we have had two nights in a row! Your Bedtime Success From A to Zzzzz book will be our baby gift of choice from now on!
Several years ago I attended a workshop series you did at our church. Recently, I attended The Spirited Child workshop, and reminded again how much you have touched the lives of families in Austin. Your suggestions are practical and positive, and they work! Your message of seeing things from a child’s point of view reminds adults what is is like to be little.
Your respect for parents making mistakes and your kindness is like a warm snuggly blanket that helps us feel safe and secure. We can do this! I’m proud to tell my friends that my family is a For Kids’ Sake family.
Last night my husband and I attended You Are NOT the Boss of Me workshop. We laughed, we cried, it was better than a movie! I can’t wait to read the book, and try more of your suggestions. And thanks for helping me realize that my child was not always the one starting those power struggles.
At the beginning of the school year, my fifth grader came home with an assignment to bring in his favorite book from when he a small child. He took in Saving B Bear, which he has read repeatedly since it came out last summer. He told me, ‘I don’t think she’ll notice that this book is only a year old, do you?
