"Just a quick e-mail before I go to bed to say what an inspiration tonights workshop was. It reminded me of where I was when I first came to the Parent Practice course last year and what a huge difference in our family life between then and now. I just thought you were really fantastic in your ability to bring the presentation to life and making it fun which is so crucial in making sure that people don't forget the key points. I absolutely love the teachings of the Parent Practice and will be going through my folder again to remind myself of those things that I am not incorporating into everyday family life."
