Kent Schmidt, Family Life Chaplain, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, OH
These skills empower my employees to solve their own problems, which makes them — and me — more productive. — Bryan Belden, President, Dayton Imaging Solutions, Inc.
Our agency sure enjoyed your presentation of The Parent's Toolshop®. Our foster parents said the information was very beneficial with their biological children, as well as with their foster children. We were particularly fond of the real life applications of the material, the detailed illustrations in the book, and the great use of diagrams and pictures you used to explain the skills involved. I feel that our staff and foster parents would greatly benefit from another training. — Thomas W. Tamplin, Coordinator of Community Relations, Youth Services Network of Southwest Ohio
It has been awhile since I have had protective service staff come back and be that excited by what they have learned, and to then hear how they implement it was even better” — Protective Service Caseworker Supervisor
Many parents told me how much they enjoyed your presentation. Many stated they went away with many useful ideas. They liked the way you did not talk "down to them," but talked "with them." I will recommend your presentation to other schools in our district. Your presentation would also be very appropriate for teachers and other school staff members. — Beth Shoaf, Principal, Buckeye Woods Elem. Sch., SouthWestern City Schools, Grove City, Ohio
Your conference presentation was enthusiastically received by all the parents and ECE professionals attending. Evaluations reflected an appreciation for y style and personal expertise. — Betsy Sadler, Texas Interagency Council on Early Childhood Intervention
What Our Partipants Say
“I have read numerous articles, magazines, and books which addressed parenting issues, attended lectures, and met with counselors in the past. Yet, I have never attended a class as thorough, well-organized and interesting as The Parent’s Toolshop®. I gained so much more than I ever expected when I signed up for this class. The most rewarding aspect was seeing positive results at home with my son, who is diagnosed with A.D.H.D. These techniques really work!!” — Rebecca Streeter
This parenting class in wonderful! The information is useful, timely, and practical. As I use the skills, I realize how great home life can be. My whole family benefits from this class. — Kay Lynch
"I have been a foster parent for 3 years and attend 10 hours of training each year. This is by far the most useful and helpful of all the seminars we have attended. It's the one that gives me practical techniques that I actually use every day." —Cathy Miller
This course was like winning the lottery, I quickly used the techniques and it worked immediately! — Susan Elias
This is by far the best workshop we have attended. Every week we learned things we could take home and apply immediately. In many areas it introduced a whole new way of thinking (and talking). — Cheryl A. Neff
“I would advise anyone who is a parent or who works with children to consider attending Toolshop® presentations. The advice is simple, yet specific and is presented in a very nonjudgmental, accepting way. As parents, teachers, and counselors, we need to know as many “tools of the trade” as we can. There’s so much at stake.” — Teresa D. Miller, M.S. Ed., High School Guidance Counselor
I enjoyed & benefited from tonight’s program. I'm the parent of 4 very different children, ages 9-16. I'm also a preschool teacher and learned new & different ideas! — Devona Muhammad
