“The class made me realize that my daughter has not developed mentally to the level that I have, so I will calm down before speaking to her, evaluate the punishment and stick to it, and let her know I still love her and appreciate her.”

“I attended along with my two granddaughters the “Teaching Your Child How to Save” event at Parrot Jungle Island. The organization and attention to the people there were excellent. The saving information was very important as well as informative. Thank you, Parent Academy for the opportunity to share with others as well as with my family.”
