Results Graduates Created After Taking the Class:
"My daughter made it clear that she no longer needs to nap, but I was not ready to lose the only time I have to work most days. Using the tools I learned in class, we figured out a routine where she plays quietly and it's been working out great for everyone! We are all honoring our needs together. We found the solution that makes us all feel powerful and in harmony."
"Last week was the first full week of preschool for my oldest. I didn't realize how moving from 2days last year to 4 days this year was going to affect him. On Monday when we picked him up he was very angry, upset, feeling left out from the time mommy and little brother had etc. He began throwing things at his little brother and kicking him in the car. Well long story short... after a week of naming it to tame it, getting down on his level, and getting to the root of our feelings we were controlling our triggers a little better and no longer taking them out on little brother! We still have our moments but at the end of the week big brother was sharing his favorite blankets and stuffed animals with his younger brother snuggling on the couch and reading books together! This was a first! I was completely shocked! Thanks Suzanne for the seeds of peace!"
"I really needed to do dishes (and a million other things) but with school starting, I feel like I've had less and less time with the kids and they've been a little fussy. I totally took 15 minutes and just cuddled them while waiting for Dad instead of being "productive." It was great for both of us (me and kids). Dishes will just never be done anyway!!!"
