"I was a bit dubious about a parenting course and was worried it would either be very prescriptive or would be some kind of cult! I really went along to support (my wife) but from the first few minutes... I realised this was going to help us big time.  Everybody with kids of all ages seemed to be in the same boat, without the answers and you gusys gave us great practical examples from your varied experiences ... which are startign to bare fruit in our home.  You guys have a great rapport and `9as a full-time academic), I can see how hard you work to keep up to date and presevent evidence based tips.  Keep up the great work..." Father, Physiotehrapist & Lecturer
