I can't thank you enough for The Parents Toolshop®. It is one of the most wonderful books I've seen. It is logically clear and easy to memorize but also talks about feelings, psychology and family issues. It also shows your wonderful personality, too. My relationship with my son was suffering because I didn't know how to discipline him. Then, as I read your articles and book, I'd stop and say to myself, "Oh, this is so right! Thank you Jody!" Your approach gives real results, good feelings and confidence. It has healed our relationship and my son is starting to appreciate me. Sometimes he says that I am the best mother! --- Ester Notik, Israel, Graduate of the Independent Home Study

This program was excellent. It totally opened my eyes to parenting. It not only taught me about parenting my child, but also helped me realize things about my childhood and why I reacted to situations as I did. It made me look at parenting a whole new way. I would recommend this class to everyone. --- Tabitha Markley

Whether focusing on skill building or practical solutions to common parenting challenges and issues, each program is custom-designed to your needs and delivered by our highly trained parent educators. Connect with your local Parents Toolshop® representative or bring them to your community!

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.” One parent stated she respected what you had to say because she could tell that although you had a lot of knowledge about parenting, you recognized the fact that parenting is not an easy job and that you still make mistakes yourself. 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 interested in helping students develop positive self images. — Beth Shoaf, Principal, Buckeye Woods Elem. Sch., SouthWestern City Schools, OH
