"I feared the two and a half hour Setting up for the holidays workshop would not be long enough to get into details; I was wrong. Heather and Panda used that brief time to demonstrate how powerful this process can be. I was blown away with how much information flowed with passion, humour and enthusiasm. The process was enlightening." 
Dad of 7
"What I have really loved is the input from other participants on the course; women and men who are accomplished in their professional fields who want to do as good a job of parenting as they have in their careers. All have boys and girls at different ages and stages and so contribute a rich range of experiences to the discussion, those to which our new found skills can be applied. " 
Mum of 1
"This workshop was useful in helping me to understand what our son will be going through, how that will affect him and how we can positively help him navigate his way through his teens."
Dad of 1
"Very positive with lovely humorous touches. I liked the fact it sought to give practical strategies – very helpful."
