Jane is a very effective presenter, bringing a unique combination of professional philosophies and personal experiences to her sessions with parents. Leaving her workshops, parents look forward to trying out the newly acquired strategies and perspectives. Very refreshing!

Thanks so much for your talk at the Firefly Grand Opening on getting kids to listen. It was a great thing for me to get re-energized about Love and Logic. I have the handout on the bulletin board in our kitchen and I'm constantly reading it, to help me keep on track. I've really been using L&L techniques over the last week and I can tell you that I see a difference in the way the kids act. Last Friday, you said that giving a consequence in anger will never have the affect you desire. Those words stuck with me and I've been trying to remember that when I want to yell and scream - "That's it - go to your room." Giving empathy has really helped when providing the consequences. Thanks so much:)

Can't say enough about both L & L techniques AND how fun and inspiring Jane was in teaching them! It provided the "basic foundation" for parenting that most people search for. With our four kids 13 - 7 years old, L&L provides me hope and direction on those days where everything seems to go haywire. . .and even on those days where all goes perfectly!

Jane, your class has provided us answers to many questions weâ??ve had regarding our approach to parenting. Not only are the L&L techniques effective, your instruction really helps us understand how to implement them in real everyday life. Our 3 year old was having difficulty adjusting to having a new baby in the house and would continuously misbehave. We reached a point where we didnâ??t know what to do. L&L was exactly what we needed. It will take time and effort for us to develop our skills, but our home is already much more peaceful with far less bickering. Thank you Jane, you do a super job!

Thank you so much....it is going well here in our house, taking lots of steps forward and only a few back every once and a while. I caught my 6 year old using L&L on our 4 year old yesterday, saying "Gracie if you don't use your manners Mommy is not going to pay attention!" Ha!

Just wanted to let you know...this morning, Jason chose to brush his teeth first and then pick out his clothes. When he finished brushing his teeth - without being reminded - he went into his room, picked out a shirt, pants, underwear and socks, and then came back into the bathroom (where I was getting ready) and proceeded to get dressed...without being told and hardly any dilly dallying! He got ready so quickly, we had time for pancakes for breakfast! HUGE improvement! Going to bed has been great too!! About a week and a half now of staying in bed! Yipee!!
I really learned a lot from the class and am feeling SO MUCH less stress!!! My two least favorite times of the day (morning and night) are so much better. Considering I work 4 days a week, some days those are the only times I get to spend with him - so the fact that they are now more enjoyable makes such a difference!!
We still have work to do, but we are well on our way. Thank you so much!

I thought Jane was exceptional. She has the perfect personality and disposition to make the class feel comfortable sharing challenges that we're not proud of and making it seem possible to be a Love and Logic parent eventually--even if it's just starting out with a few techniques at a time and building on them.

Even though the class felt like a lot at the end of long days, it was very engaging and extremely helpful. We just wished we took it five years ago! Jane was a great facilitator, made it feel do-able and gave very good real life examples at each session.

Thank you for finally providing the "book" I was looking for. For years all I heard was..."well there's no book for proper parenting". Now having gone through your program I feel like I know what am doing or what I should be doing. The techniques learned paid immediate dividends. My son is far more cooperative (and less aggresive)today than he was 2 months ago. I hope all parents take the opportunity to go through your class. You were a great facilitator who brought personal experience. Thanks again!

Thank you, Jane! You are providing such a wonderful service to parents like me. Family life has become more peaceful. My husband and I now have the means to elicit cooperation from our children.

L&L has changed how I parent. I now have effective techniques to fall back on. My children and I are happier!

As a preschool director, I have seen the Love and Logic techniques help parents and teachers alike deal with challenging behaviors calmly and consistently. Thanks Jane--I wish I had known about Love and Logic when I was raising my own children!

As a single woman adopting a 7 year old boy from the foster care system, I had no preparation in parenting so I needed a crash course. Jane introduced me to L&L and coached me through the early days and some severe behavioral issues. She gave me the skills and techniques to parent my new, very scared and fragile child in a secure, structured way that was EXACTLY what we needed to become a family. Jane is empathetic and nonjudgmental and teaches out of life experience and renowned training methods. I'm convinced that is precisely the reason my son and I have created a loving, trusting bond that he'll need to overcome past traumas. Jane, I'll never be able to repay you.

Children are just little people, learning some hard lessons in life, and parents want to be good role models and teach their children with patience, kindness and love. Sometimes it's hard being the "adult", and to do so calmly. Jane is a calm and caring individual who, through Love and Logic, provides parents with the techniques that work in every family. Parents won't feel like they have to repeat themselves or argue, and children learn responsibility and kindness, from the best role models they have, their parents. This, with a lot of love, makes for a very happy family. I would highly recommend this program.
