“We have watched the course and we loved it so much so that we even re-watched some of the videos and have changed our entire parenting style.
We are now using the Oreo approach with our daughter, who will be turning 4 in April, and we have seen an improvement. You opened our eyes in many ways. We are undermining each other less (bad habits are hard to break). We never even knew we were doing it. Our parents did it so we thought it was natural.
Not only has our relationship improved, but the ones with our children have gotten better. The way we were raised impacts the way we are raising our children, in both good and bad ways. I do tend to over compensate, and he can go from 0 to 60 in a flash, so your advice hit right at home. I find myself yelling less and the kids are listening more. I cannot thank you enough.”
-Cindy, Mom of two
"I immensely enjoyed the Creative ways to get kids to Listen because my 5yo and 3yo are probably stuck in a rut and need some new ways to listen better.
I found the sessions just the right length and they included the perfect amount of information, not too much and not too little. It was also so good to have you demonstrate the example situations and what you have done with your own children because often times we as parents think 'Oh my kids don't do that!' Being able to relate to another person (and not a book or cd) was great.
We do our best as parents to make sure we're on the same page, but I have to agree with some of your parent session statements. We don't always wait till our kids are not around to talk about a situation or at times our children will go from one parent to another to try to get what they want. The parent session was great to reinforce what really needs to be done between the two parents in the home to ensure that children are receiving the same message."
-Kathleen, Mom to a 3 and 5 year old
"The best thing about your course is that it got Hubs and I more on the same page. He understands now why I am constantly rephrasing her words. We were both humbled by lesson 2 where you discuss undermining each other. We loved your suggestion for a gesture or word to signal disagreement instead of pulling the rug out from under each other.
We both appreciated your positive attitude and non-judgmental tone. We did not feel like anything we have been doing made us horrible parents or that we should have known better. We are now on a mission to be a calm consistent parenting team. We loved your quirky out of the box section and actually practiced rephrasing some saying yes scenarios.
Overall this was the perfect little course for us to sort of regroup and work toward change. I've never had such a positive response from Hubs. He said it was much better than when I ask him to read an article or book and is totally open to hearing more from you. This mom is thrilled!"

My name is Natasha Daniels and I am a Child Therapist, Anxiety & OCD specialist and mother to three vibrant, challenging and insightful children who keep me on my toes! I have spent the last fourteen years working with children and families in my private practice Hill Child Counseling.
I have three kids with anxiety and OCD. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I have suffered from social anxiety for as long as I can remember. It wasn't until I wrote my first book and had to frequently go out of my comfort zone, that I realized the level of debilitation my social anxiety was causing. With the tools I taught others in my practice, I worked hard to crush my own anxiety.
