We have received a huge amount of positive feedback from the sessions. We’ve included a small selection of comments here.
“The work you are doing is VITALLY important. I have been feeling so alone and isolated as a single parent. This has made me feel supported in just an hour and a half. ”
“This has been the best online service I have ever been on…thank you. Worth every minute of our time and yours.
“The session was amazing. It’s been so hard throughout the pandemic to support my three teenagers as there’s been so much uncertainty for them. There’s so little for parents and the world our teenagers are growing up in now is very different to the world that we did. These sessions are so needed to help us as parents, so thank you.”
“So informative and friendly jargon free information. Such a great idea. Thank you all.”
“It’s been very reassuring that I’m on the right track with my gorgeous children. I’m so grateful for everything you’re doing to help parents with teens.”
“Thank you for this informative session. It makes you realise you are not the only one navigating the teenage rollercoaster!!”
“Thank you sooooo much. You’ve really helped give me the strength to persevere with, and not give up on, my parenting efforts, as well as giving me some excellent tools.”
