“We talk a lot more to our grandchild. The whole course was about the child and how we can interact with her. I still look back at the notes.”
“I have less stress in the house because I am using different words. It works for the whole family. I say ‘I see’ instead of being sarcastic. It works! Now my daughter does it – they notice!”

Foster carers quotes from Seminar Feedback:
"I have really benefited from the seminar. You provided such helpful information. I have been 'raving' about the training and keep telling everyone about the helpful information on child behaviour, what happens in-utero and increased depth of understanding of the child." I cannot wait to read the book! K.A.
