Testimonials from Parents Enrolled in "Understanding Preschoolers"
“There's so much advice about parenting out there that it can feel completely overwhelming. This class cuts through the clutter and gives you the best, most up-to-date information in a way that's easy to digest and put into practice at home. I really like the combination of science-based information and practical advice. This class allowed me to become more proactive and less reactive when parenting. I feel more confident and have more tools to deal with difficult situations, which allows me to relax and actually enjoy parenting.”
“The class created an environment for self reflection that allowed me to get off the mommy treadmill of guilt that was making me doubt myself and kind of hate parenting. It just shifted my perspective, as you said, so I could just mellow out and enjoy it instead of fearing that every decision I was making was ruining my child.”
“It does not help me when my children are having a melt down and then I have a melt down because I have reached my limit and do not know what to do. This class has given me tools to use at home to redirect and connect with my children during these times. I have now been more often than not able to calm my children, which in return calms me and allows me to be a better parent in the end by not losing my cool.”
“Rachel was an incredibly thoughtful teacher who expressed wisdom while not making the rest of us feel like bad parents. I walked away from each class feeling ready to face the next challenge with my child and knowing that I had a few more tools in the toolbox to keep frustration low.”
“Rachel provides parents with a safe place to learn, discuss, rethink and retool for our daily parenting. The class was interesting and helpful and I'm glad I made the time for it.”
“This course was surprisingly helpful! Many things in life get in the way of taking the time to try and understand your children's behavior during difficult times and this class was able to shine light on what now seems very obvious, but in the heat of the moment is difficult to see. It has helped me feel more confident has a parent and more understand towards my children, which in return has made the connection between us (parent and child) much stronger. Which is truly an amazing feeling! :) We still have our difficulties and we always will (that's life), this class has just given me the tools to navigate through those times more smoothly.” t Supported.
