Feedback from previous Brisbane Circle of Security Parenting Weekend Workshop: 

"I found this exceptional. I feel empowered to know how to deal with those challenging situations that I had no idea how to handle before. Thank you."

"This course exceeded my expectations. I am really excited to embrace the next stage in our family life and really start enjoying being with our children"

"Thank you so much. You've truly opened my eyes. I think every parent should attend one."

"This course taught me more than I expected. It has really transformed the way I view my parenting. This has been so helpful - the best education I have accessed since becoming a parent."

"This is such a wonderful program that really takes the guesswork out of parenting. By learning how to respond to our children in the ways taught in this course, we can grow everconfident that we are raising our children to be well-balanced, loving and independent. And best of all, we can teach them how to pass on these qualities to future generations.”
