“Because of you guys I was able to learn how to talk to my 12 year old and get him to finally open up and speak about some important issues in his life, and now he is finally ready to talk not just to me, but someone who can help him in ways I cannot. So I thank you. And I recommend that class to any parent of a teen.” – Tanya A.
