  • The course really helped me to look at things differently. Learning to be firm and fair with my kids has transformed our family interactions and our household is a happier place to be.

    Tracy, attended a Toolbox course

  • After the presentation, for some reason I walked out as a happier person. It changed my views about relationships and sex - for the better. It made me realise that there are more important values in a relationship that we should experience and cherish before the physical stuff happens.

    Student, saw an Attitude presentation

  • Great presentation and positive parenting tips. Thanks for making our whānau a safer and better place to be.

    Toni, attended a Parenting Show with Pio event

  • I am astounded with the change in our son. We've even had three different people say that they've seen a change in his behaviour, and we are so much happier! Can't speak highly enough about Parenting Place and the change in both mine and this tricky boy’s behaviour!
