“I attended your seminar at the Camarillo library last week and thought the material
was excellent in content, research, and presentation. You have so many practical and non-alienating suggestions–such as let your child know ahead of time you will be checking the phone for activity.
I am a grandmother of five and both our daughters have taken your seminar and are implementing your suggestions. Thank you so much for helping us all be better parents and grandparents.”

Blessings on you and your work,

Suzanne S.
