Review for Hand in Hand Parenting, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hand in Hand has really supported me during my son's preTeen and Teen years. I found Hand in Hand when my son was 5 - 10 years ago. My consultation with Patty Wipfler, the founder, changed our bedtime, my relationship with my son and our lives. Puberty hit my son hard and he really started to struggle. Hand in Hand's support helped me to continue to see my son as good and to keep reaching for him during some hard times. Our relationship is stronger today than it ever was because of Hand in Hand.

Review for Hand in Hand Parenting, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was trying my best to be a 'compassionate' parent when my son was little, but I felt like I didn't know what to do in the moment. Then I discovered Hand in Hand Parenting and the 5 Listening Tools, which changed my relationship with my adopted son and our lives. Here was an approach that taught me how to get support for myself so that I could support my son and deepen our connection. I have since become a Certified Instructor and am continually amazed by the amount of resources Hand in Hand offers to parents for FREE and the commitment Hand in Hand has to reach under served communities all around the globe. It may seem idealistic, but I truly believe that if every parent had access to the kind of support that Hand in Hand provides, we could raise a world full of peacemakers.
