Thank you! This talk was amazingly helpful & better than I imagined—not things I already ‘knew.’
— Workshop Participant, Habitot Children's Museum
Amazing workshop! Dr. Erica is very knowledgeable and uses real life scenarios relevant to the topic. I have new tools to help foster a loving/respectful relationship between myself and my stepdaughter. Thank you!
— Sandee, Oakland, CA
I really enjoyed your presentation at [our school] and wanted to let you know we have been using your tips ever since. Because of your tips, our son learned how to do some new things this weekend, like put on a record and flip a pancake, and had no time-outs.
— Anne O., Oakland, CA
Thank you so much for your presentations. We really noticed a difference in our behavior with our son (ours and his) over the past week. He is even now beginning to say Please (in his own 20 month old way) when he is asking for things! I really appreciate your clear tips and your contextual examples.
— Oakland Preschool Parents
I wish I would have know this stuff 50 years ago!
— Workshop participant and grandmother, UCSF Benioff / Children's Hospital
So clear and well presented. Brilliant! So much to think about and act on and share.
— Workshop participant, Habitot Children's Museum
Thank you! I found your presentation to be very insightful and helpful. My baby girl is just 9 months old and it’s great to learn these parenting approaches now.
— K., Berkeley Parent
I was one of the parents at the Habitot [Children’s Museum] workshop. I just wanted to say thank you so much for doing the class. I attended because the description sounded like what i had been pondering as a parenting philosophy and the class gave me practical ways to implement those thoughts. It seems like helping parents be good parents is really important to you, and we are blessed by that.
— Melissa L., Oakland Parent
