What Parents are saying about
our parenting class:
I learned about how easily the things we do and say can negatively impact our children - things we don't even realize are harmful.
Mother- Deschutes County, OR
"I learned a lot about “I” statements, they really made me think. Also having the "What about the Children" reference is great, because I can refer to it with questions."
Father, Hamilton County, OH
"I was grateful for the additional resources made available when creating a parenting plan and helping my children through this challenging process."
Mother- Maricopa County, AZ
"This program has helped me understand how important it is to have better communication with the other party for the kids sake, although it has been nearly impossible. But I will continue to use the skills this program has taught me."
