“Susan, I am so grateful! Your Mindful Parenting is THE answer. I works wonders with all seven of my children and even my three granddaughters! With some, it just takes more perseverance. Our crowded, cozy little home has never been as peaceful as it is today. I have never enjoyed my children more than since your course, which means a lot, as they each have always been the best thing that ever happened to me!” ~ Haya (Israel)

“It was very nice to meet you and to continue to learn new techniques when dealing with my twins. I enjoyed the seminar very much, and am happy to have my husband look through the items as well.” Deoona L. (WA)

“Mindful Robotics really kept me calm and got my kids cooperating today. Wow.” ~ Deborah

Our 9 year old twin girls were having difficulties focusing on their activities, and as a family, we spent a lot of time arguing and feeling unhappy. We spent a lot of time fighting and stressing over homework. When we spend time together as a family now, it does not involve fighting, raising voice or arguing. Instead, we have fun together as a family, we do things together and we enjoy spending time together. The kids are doing well in school academically and our homework became a breeze. Thank you for everything that you have done for us!” ~ Elena

“It was such a relief to not have to feel that horrible stress peak in the morning before getting my children off to school. I can just get them ready now, by talking without being emotionally engaged.  My oldest son said to me last night “ mom, you’ve been much nicer.”, and I answered  “so have you!” We all feel the difference.”
-Annica Torneryd (Sweden)
