What Parents are Saying

What do past participants of Understanding Kids courses think?

I thoroughly recommend Lindsay's sessions. I strive for evidence based information which is exactly what we got. It certainly helped us to better understand our son and therefore parent accordingly. It gave my husband a big confidence boost and as a result has meant he could gently help him to settle to sleep.”



A fantastic course full of practical advice and information based on evidence-based research, taught in an imaginative and accessible way. I felt very lucky to be able to meet and discuss issues with other parents with a similar outlook in a friendly atmosphere.
