“I cannot say enough how doing the Hand in Hand Starter parenting class has changed my life. There is an overall change where people are commenting on how much more comfortable in her own skin and content my 5-year-old daughter is and how she has overcome her fears. Despite twice yearly visits to the coast my daughter was terrified of the sea. Through Special Time and Staylistening, she literally runs into the ocean and we spend hours playing in the waves.”

You’ll Experience:

  • Less parenting stress
  • A warm, supportive relationship with your instructor
  • An opportunity to transform your parenting and your family
  • Personal attention and time for your questions and issues to be addressed

“I took a 6-week Hand in Hand Starter class to improve my parenting. Little did I know just how much it would improve my life. Had anyone ever told me that a different approach to parenting would make being mom more fun and help me to stand up and take action in difficult situations confidently, securely and bravely, I would have thought them joking. But this has been my experience, in less than 6 months.”

“I’m usually tired after work, a long day, and my attention flags. I wondered whether I would make it through the 6 weeks, but I feel so energized. I feel a lot more confident being a parent now. My relationship with my children is so much better. I called my wife in Singapore to tell her how great I was doing with the kids while she was away, and she told me she was too tired to listen, but I told her “You have to hear this! I’m a Superdad! I have to tell you what’s been happening!”

You’ll have instant access to the parenting class videos, and you’ll have lifetime access to the booklets and the class manual. You will also join a 6 week live support call with a Certified instructor at no additional cost. For $297, you receive all of the above, in addition to six months of access to the videos for repeated viewing, instead of the standard eight weeks. Each video and support call will open the door to new insights and positive experiences for you and for your child.
