This class was very informative and I learned some very useful information that I can begin using at home immediately. It also gave me some insight into my toddler's way of learning and coping. It was super helpful and I look forward to what the next offering might be. I think I will likely visit the Peace At Home site on my own as well.

- Jennifer B,
I watched one of the recorded classes and it helped tremendously with my boys tonight. I’m usually yelling while my oldest has a tantrum. I stayed calm and ignored his negative behaviors and acknowledged when my boys did something positive. First night I didn’t lose my cool and I just wanted to say thank you. I followed the checklist for success and it worked :)
