What Parents Say about the program

The program just was reinforcing all of the way… taking care of myself and my needs and compassion was really essential to my good parenting and getting my children and I through it.
I'm super happy and fortunate that I went through this program, because I feel like I'm on a better path that I have the tools that I can raise my children.
It was just getting through particularly very challenging, difficult times. So, learning that skillset was hugely helpful, because it did help me be the, become the best version of myself and that much better of a mom.
What this helped us do is that it created a really strong bond between both of us where now she feels that she can actually come to me and tell me what she’s feeling and get the support that she needs from me.
