What our mothers had to say

“The courses provide clarity on: your role as parent; understanding what it means to be a teen; getting to grips with the interplay of gender differences; communication; tackling their anger (and yours) and much more. From the UK to the US and South Africa, the response from participating parents is relief. Parents speak of restored confidence, a better understanding of their children, and real results.”

- Tim Jarvis, Michaelhouse Boys High School Psychologist

“Megan is truly a remarkable person … smart, passionate, relatable, humorous. Her approach in helping guide our group of parents with teenage girls brought such insight and perspective. I left feeling more empowered and eager to share my teen’s journey and maybe even learn more about myself along the way too ;)”

- Pam, San Francisco

“I have learned so much and already beginning to see the rewards of a different approach with my eldest son. Our entire family is benefiting. Life is just “lighter”; conversations are more fruitful and generally there is more intimacy and laughter.”

- Norma Yates, Bishops mother

“I consider this workshop a must, for all mothers.”

- Tsitsi Musasike, Jhbg. Mother

“If you have published a book about your parenting philosophies and tips, I would be very pleased to know so that I could order one.”

- UK mother
