From time to time we receive emails from folks just like you who are discovering just how revolutionary our content can be. We love hearing this — not just because it validates our materials but because it means lives are being changed. Our whole idea is to help people stay cool enough to handle any moment in the moment. We know that if they can do that, they can find the momentum they need to create great relationships. Great relationships, change lives, which transform communities, which, in turn, heal the world. So, we want to share with you some of the stories we get to hear — stories of life change, stories of transformation. Today’s story comes from one mom who felt like she was failing at this whole parenting thing until she discovered ScreamFree.

I thank you for taking time to speak to parents in your busy schedule. I also wanted to thank you for sharing your beliefs through your book. I am not looking for a theory or practice that will make parenting easier. As it’s said, it is the hardest job anyone could ever have. After our time with you, my husband and I were walking to the parking lot holding hands with a sigh of relief and tears streaming down my face. What you said to me (and my husband) in not so many words is “it’s okay – you’re trying to do the best you can.” I so appreciate that and wanted to let you know. I am seeing a change in my relationship with my children to a more positive one. I don’t want them to have to wait 30 years to build a relationship with me as I have now done with my parents. I want them to fall down, pick themselves up, brush themselves off, and start all over again with me in the background waiting to hug them and let them know it’s okay because they are trying to do the best they can.
