JASON CORNELIUS
Division Leader

"The Parenting the Love and Logic Way course has been a fantastic refresher course for our seasoned teachers and an important introductory course for our teachers who are newer to the methods. The presenters have been highly effective and have generously worked with our teachers as resources, a network of support, and a valuable community resource. I recommend this course and the instructors who have been teaching this course to any school or community group hoping to improve parenting skills in their organization. We hope to continue to utilize this amazing community resource in the years to come!"

KIMBERLY J. ANDERSON

"They have been a great resource of information for our community. We make sure to schedule class series every year to have this pertinent information available to the community on a consistent basis. The presenters have been reliable, informed, and personable.

"Not only is the coordination simple and the class free to participate in, but it gives our employees a meaningful opportunity to grow in areas outside of the work realm. By offering this course, it has also given us an opportunity as a company to communicate that we care about our employees and their families."
