“Kim speaks with authentic warmth and clarity about the realities of parenting in today’s world with humor and compassion. Parents felt strengthened in our dedication to simplify our lives. Kim is an inspiring counselor, heartfelt and humorous speaker.”
Suzie Baum, Parent Association Chair
“If I could say this [presentation] was mandatory I would, because this is working directly with the foundations from which we are seeking to guide our children.”
Elyce Perico, Class and Special Education Teacher
“It has been a transformative experience to see social difficulties as a modern form of how children come to define themselves if we ‘elder’ them in an insightful way. I can now bring hope and inspiration back to a place that often seem hopeless and burdensome.”
Stuart Brown, Elementary School Principal.
“As a parent I think I was prepared for the teenage years but no one told me much about the ups and downs of parenting a tween and how this would have implications on the teen years. This talk was helpful, humorous and left me feeling much more confident about what I was doing.”
Suzanna Holt, Parent
“So often I feel helpless when I see what is going on. Hearing this presentation not only gave me hope but it gave me a point to begin.”
Misha Kemp, Parent and Medical Doctor
“Doing this simple, quiet inner exercise a minute of two a day has had such a positive and profound effect in my family and classroom. I have freed myself from old reactive patterns of responding to challenging behavior that come from a “soul fevered” child.”
Dianne Heathe, Parent and High School Teacher
“After this talk I went right home and put these tools into practice with my son. It is so empowering to
know there is something I can do to help my child socially. The teasing has stopped and more than
that, he is beginning to make some good friends.”
Anita Gonzales, Parent
“I feel so relieved. This presentation confirmed my gut instinct that our 11 year old did not need to be given access to all the teen stuff but at the same time was no longer a baby. I now have a bag of practical tools to use when I need to step in that my son is already responding to so well.”
Jonathan Pittman, Parent
“You just never think your young child can do something so stunningly antisocial. I was so relieved to get clear what was normal and what was not without going into parental panic and guilt. Kim has obviously parented young children but has looked very deeply into how to sort out their intentions from their actions. If this guy comes to town don’t miss this talk.”
Leslie Min, Parent
”I haven’t laughed so much at my own mistakes in a long time. After this talk I don’t feel I need to go drumming the
the wilderness or read a bunch of books, I guess I would call it practical intelligence about raising boys, stuff I can
do right away.”
Steve Gladstone, Parent
