What Parents Say
About Teleseminars classes
“... what a brilliant idea!. It would be impossible for me to attend classes with 3 young children [under 3 years] and this was so convenient, quick and effective.
The ability to ask questions and dialogue made the experience feel like the best of a [live] class and a counselling session in one.
I would love to participate on a regular basis.”
Melissa Hylton. April 24, 2004.
“Thank you so much for arranging the teleclass. I felt like the most capable Mom that I can be after the teleclass.
You empowered me to think before I act/react, observe my non verbal behaviour and remember to separate the deed from the doer. I look forward to the next teleclass.”
Lesley Shepard. May 10, 2004.
About Audio CDs
“Thank you for the CD. It is absolutely jam-packed full of W.O.W ("Words Of Wisdom") I will listen to it again, and probably again after that!”
Irma Connell. April 2007.
About Leadership Training
“Thanks for giving this course and allowing me the opportunity to continue my growth and skills as a PARENT.
Your particular teaching style is totally enlightening and it's a pleasure to listen to you.
Your encouragement and humor reminds me there is light at the end of the tunnel on those disastrous days.”
Deena Sussman. April 24, 2004.
About Parenting courses
“Beverley, for all of the books gathering dust on my parenting shelf, thereís nothing to compare to the interactive learning and corrections of your dynamic group classes!!!
Your wonderful advice and guidance is SO incredibly helpful for us all. Hearing the other parents and their issues is very powerful too. It has helped me immensely as of late and provided confidence and reassurance that Iím not alone!”
“I want to thank you for passing on your wisdom and experience. I just finished the advanced parenting course and I am so grateful for everything I learned.
I feel much more effective and empowered as a mother and I think my children are feeling empowered as well!
It is so great! We are going through a bit of a bumpy patch right now with some changes but I feel like we are all managing it well. Thank you so much. Hopefully I will see you or speak with you again soon as I plan on taking some of the other courses offered this spring.
P.S. Our family meetings are a continuued success! My son Ben who is 6 years old loves them and asks every other day if we can have another family meeting!”
Tricia Kindree. March 12, 2007.
“... Wow has my relationship with my daughter changed!
really loves me now. She hugs me. Asks for me. Kisses me. Jokes with me. We now have a real loving relationship. I have to thank Beverley for making this happen.
Yes it took a lot of work, focus and attention to put Beverley's basic principles to work. What better investment of time could there be?
Before the Parenting Network, for years my daughter did not know I existed except when she would yell and scream at me. Thankyou Beverley for your wisdom. I will be back for more of it soon.”
Brian Prosserman. 2006.
“I just loved our weekly class. I miss them! You are like my chiropracter – I need to see you each week to help put things back in place.”
“Thanks so much for the great session the other day. You have truly found your calling – you are wonderful at what you do and some day I'm sure my children will give you an honorable mention when they receive the Nobel Peace prize!”
Nona Morrow. Oct 2005.
“I wanted to express my appreciation for the help and insight you provided over the last seven weeks.
I am definitely becoming a more skilled parent.
As the result of the class, our family is working really well together for the most part.”
Leslie Jones. June 2, 2004.
“This course changed our lives. When we came to see Beverley we were at our wits end.
Within a few weeks of taking her course, and changing our approach, we gained a tremendous degree of family harmony.”
Mary and Doug Penny.
“I highly recommend this parenting course.
The parenting tools are practical, effective and could well be applied to relationships beyond parenting.”
Dr. Diane Meshino.
“A+ courses! I learned to focus on creating a more positive and close relationship with each of my children.
Parenting is now much more enjoyable.
I feel confident this will help us through the teenage years and beyond.”
“Beverley reminds us that the struggle between parent and child can be resolved without leaving both angry and deflated.
As well, her witty and warm approach made for a fun class!”
“Beverley’s courses are inspirational!
Not only does she guide you to an understanding of the dynamics of your relationships, she also provides you with practical ideas on how to enhance those relationship.”
“Everytime I get together with you I learn something very significant.
I am always inspired by you and your approach. ... I still haven’t seen or experienced anyone who can match your ability - your knowledge and humour... you inspire hope in me.”
“I wanted to thank you for a wonderful course that gave me many useful tools for approaching parenting with a refreshed outlook.
... I found every session to be an invaluable use of my time.
I found your program to be effective, professional and encouraging in all aspects of parenting.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the class and am looking forward to starting again next week.
I have read many, many books on parenting but without the back-up of conversation and the support of a group for feedback they just don't have the same impact.
I wish I had been able to do these courses (had I known about them) years ago but am grateful to have the opportunity to participate now. Thank you!”
“I learned so much from taking your class. It provided me with a totally different way to approach my kids.
You taught me to look at situations from their point of view and how to problem-solve when things weren’t working.
Our actions and words as parents have such long term consequences. I learned important steps to take to make positive changes.”
“I found the course very beneficial. I enjoyed meeting other moms from the school. I loved thinking about my role as a parent today and in the future which I often lose sight of. It provided me with some insight on other dilemmas people have, and that I’m not the only one.
Most importantly the course provided me with some tools to correct and continue a positive growth in our family.
I personally liked the 2 week session as it is all the time I could afford to give to this matter at this time.”
“I really enjoyed your course.
It was helpful not only in strengthening my relationship with my children but also in understanding how my upbringing impacts my parenting.
Our three boys are doing really well, I’m so glad we discovered you and your style as early in their lives as we did.”
About Open Family Forum
“Thank you for such a great experience last night. I would highly recommend it to any family. The girls loved being "teachers" to all those grown ups and were consciously reversing roles when they got home.
I asked them to put their dirty clothes in the hamper when they got undressed. Emma refused, then Sasha said "no, I won’t" (with a big grin on her face) and then Emma (right on cue it would appear) said "yes, I will" and picked up her stuff and threw it in the hamper.
I was amazed and said, "OK Sasha you can put the clothes away in the morning".
Sasha then proceeded to decline brushing her teeth but thought better of it and stomped off to down the hall to do so.
As she returned to bed she said to me, "usually teachers tell kids that they should obey, but I had a teacher tell me not to obey!" She was clearly tickled by this and I said, "bet you feel like the luckiest kid in the world right now".
After I tucked them in I couldn't help but reflect on what a great gift Sasha was given that night and how my own life as a pleaser might have been different if an adult had given me permission to say no (and I had parents who understood the significance of that permission). Thank you for that insight, Marion; I certainly got a great deal more out of the session last night than I could have ever anticipated.
Oh, and Emma did turn off the TV at 8:15 this morning. It was the most relaxing morning we've had in a long time! Thank you for everything”.
