Honestly your work has been great for me when it came to my children. Before, my relationship with my daughter (like I am sure it is with most parents), was rocky, and now it’s just wonderful now. I’ve made incredible progress with my son too, who keeps asking “When are we going to do our mom/son trip?” He is 12. Seriously can’t thank you enough for helping me become closer with my kids– without your coaching I am sure I would still be lost.

I know that talking about sex and relationships is the challenge of a lifetime.

It can be so SO difficult!  Most of the parents I talk to haven’t had great role models or we all feel equally unqualified to teach this topic well, but my question to you is: who else is going to do it for us?

That’s why I believe that just by being here, you’re exceptional. You understand that our kids need us to be brave and awkward and to be courageous enough to try communicating life’s most valuable lessons on what it means to have happy, healthy, and prosperous relationships.
