"Thank you for your passion and commitment to parents. I am more confident as a parent and, while people may judge me, and I won't be perfect, I'm doing my best which is the best I can do."  Rachel


​​"I learnt what listening to children really means and how important it is for parents to have the right support and tools so that they are able to listen." Muna


"I learnt how important it is to keep the connection with your child to build their emotional intelligence. I realised how differently children behave when they are connected, compared to when they are disconnected. This course teaches you what your children need - the love that you have to give them. It helps you to get rid of some stereotyped ideas that may limit your natural way of being a parent." Paolo


"Everything is so powerful and positive. I now see tantrums as a positive thing - a healing process. I see that my children acting out is a positive thing - they are trying in the best way they can to tell me that all is not well with them and that they are feeling hurt or overwhelmed - there is no such thing as 'throw away behaviour". It's wonderful to have the tools to help my children back to being themselves. With these tools and this information, I can be a powerful parent and a leader within my family, not a victim to my children's behaviour. When that gets hard, I know to try to get some support - especially a Listening Partnership." Bernie
