I want to thank you for your presentation for the —Mothers Club. I am so grateful for the information you provided and the way in which you gave it.
So often, presenters of such difficult topics take a dramatic tone in an effort to call attention or importance to their words. For me, that style has an almost opposite effect. Your calm assurance left me feeling calmer and more capable. From my perspective, your calmness also helped keep the anxiety and worry where it belongs, with the parents, rather than taking it upon yourself to worry for them or attempt to chastise or blame.
It doubly impacted me because I was finishing reading the book “ScreamFree Parenting,” which should really be called “Living a Connected and Respectful Life.” So much of what you said mirrored the words and ideas in that book. Between that book and your workshop, I feel very different as a parent and a person. I feel like I’m on the verge of something great, something so different from the way I was raised. Already things are changing for the better. Sincerest Thanks
