“After attending 1-2-3 Magic, Love & Logic and various other classes, there has been a night and day difference at home.

My son and I are able to resolve conflicts with little to no issue at all; transitions from one activity to the next, bedtime routines, etc. I am very pleased with the instruction and the results and have recommended these classes to friends and family with young children or who are expecting. Attending these workshops has been one of the greatest investments I’ve made which will last a lifetime. Thank you!”
