“I am better aware of my triggers and have learned to self-regulate my emotions.” CJ

This is by far the best parenting class I have taken. I’m thankful for the opportunity I’ve learned so much more about myself as a parent and how to handle situations instead of just basic parenting skills. I’ve learned to stand up for myself and make better decisions for my children.  I’ve been so encouraged by this program it truly is a blessing.” ~ M. Babb
