Description


Say YES with joy!

"If you know you are ultimately going to drive your child to the mall, let your daughter have a 3-person sleepover or allow your son an extra cookie after dinner - just go straight to a happy YES! When you offer up an awesome gesture as if you are doing your kids a big favor, it takes the fun out of it. It is so easy to add joy to your delivery with "Sure!" or "I'd be happy to!" or "Let's do that!" Your enthusiasm will make your child feel even better about your YES, but best of all, it will make you feel great."(Parenting Golden Rule #1)

“To call Sue a miracle worker is an understatement. Sue has coached me through it all—communicating better with my rambunctious toddler, establishing healthier relationships with our support system (family and external), and teaching me various tools and prompts to stay firm on the important things and let the little things go. She’s a light in our family’s life. –Hitha Palepu, author and entrepreneur
