Even though we had read books and been to conferences, coaching was helpful because we could ask questions and get suggestions specific to our situation. Now there's less anxiety and more peace in our home. As a bonus, our son has a higher tolerance for things that don't go exactly his way and his reactions are more appropriate.

I reached out to Melissa when one of our children started displaying scary behaviors that were outside of the tools we had. I had run out of ideas and felt like I was failing. I knew what I was doing wasn't working, but I didn't know what else to do. The behaviors haven't completely gone away, but I don't live in fear anymore. I feel in control of myself and confident about my parenting. The transformation is like night and day. Thanks to Melissa, we feel like we have our family back again.
