Thank you

This has given me the right words and approach of how to talk about these tricky situations. Especially with young kids. And my heart warms each time they use clips from Sesame Street!

Parental perfection!

I’m loving this both as a mother and a therapist! Clear, concise, and practical with views from both real life parents as well as childhood development professionals.

Excellent research/expert based information in a small easy to understand package. Love the recap of the “take always” at the end!
