Boy giving thumbs up

I feel now I have the ability to raise my kids in a way that won’t lead them down the path that some of my nephews and cousins have gone down – school suspensions, drugs, trouble with the law. I would recommend this program to any parent with a young child they are having problems with. Everything they taught me works and I am going to stick with it.

Parenting Program Participant

Spending time truly teaching kids how to understand themselves and how to work with other kids paid off. I was then able to actually teach the math, reading, science, and social studies that I needed to because the kids had the training they needed to be more effective in class.

Teacher Program Participant

Basically, I learned a whole new way to teach.

It’s never too late to gain skills, and as parents, we gained new skills that we will use for the rest of our lives.
