What parents say about us...

You have been our saving grace. Three months ago I was stressed & yelling, and now have found love, enjoyment & empowerment. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I feel so much more confident as a parent, and understand what strategies I have to foster my relationship with my son, good behaviour and a way happier household.

This was an excellent & thought-provoking course. It's good to add new dimensions to the everyday thinking around how to parent teenagers.
I discovered that I'm not alone. The most valuable tools in this parenting toolkit include having a sense of humour and ability to step back, observe objectively & empathise.
Working with Real Parents has been extremely helpful and has given me the confidence in my parenting. I feel positive about the future of our children and family.
All of my initial goals for working with Real Parens have been met. This has made the world of difference for me and my kids.
Oh my gosh! Finally my husband and I are on the same page! Thanks Real Parents!
Our formerly emotionally-charged child is on a much calmer path and was awarded an end-of-year prize for 'effort' as a result. Such a big win for us all.
Things are so much calmer since working with Real Parents. Me, my kids, even the dog!
Learning to 'coach' our child has been a complete game changer. He can manage his emotions much more easily and is way less frustrated. Before working with Real Parents, we were a mess tbh. Now, we're not at all.
We had tried everything! But were so pleased to find Real Parents who gave us the support and empathy we needed to learn new things and reconnect with our kids. This has been the best investment ever.
