I have very much enjoyed working with you and partnering with you to serve university families. The Preschool Jump Start group received very good reviews. The parents were very pleased with the program. They said that the children were very happy, and they want to continue coming to the FRC. I am very grateful for your participation in our programming and thank you for sharing your talent with us.

Our David is doing better - his behavior in gym and music improved. We began practicing his songs from music class and we purchased weights for him to use for our Family Fitness Club - he has really enjoyed that. We are working on giving him more opportunities to connect with his friends by hosting more play dates and sleepovers.
He still struggles with transitions in the classroom, but we are working on getting him more rest in the evenings and helping him by talking through his schedule for the day.
We really appreciate your insights - it made everything so much clearer.

We benefited enormously as a family from the loving attention Katalin gave to Jonathan during his two nursery school years. She is incredibly observant and really picked up on subtleties in his behavior. She then reached out to us to discuss what she observed. One of the things we valued most was Katalin's ability to see our son from different perspectives and then to articulate those perspectives to us and work with us on appropriate actions/adjustments in our own interactions with him.

A one-hour meeting with Katalin was more fruitful than any one of the dozen parenting books that line my shelf. Using concrete examples from my family life, Katalin taught me how to move beyond preschool age defiance by first legitimizing my four-year-old's feelings, and then engaging her in the problem solving. Through her extensive training in psychology and education, Katalin is able to equip both parents and children with a toolkit of life skills, an approach that is both sustainable and empowering. I will continue to consult with Katalin throughout the different stages of my children's growth and development.
I made many notes after our meeting last summer to which I still often refer.
C.G., mother of a four-year-old girl.
We really don't know how we could possibly ever thank you enough for your advice. We have implemented several if not all your suggestions and our daughter is responding very, very well. My wife is having a tough time with this "healthy discipline" but we are coming along.
R. L. B., father of a toddler.
Thank you so much for your input. It is working extremely well for us. We can hold the line much better because we know, in the long run, it is what's best for Rosie.
Lisa and Carl, parents of a preschooler.
Thank you, Katalin! The info about teens' sexuality, and about how to approach my daughter, have been so helpful.
