I attended a Positive Discipline workshop and thought it was excellent! The information was easy to understand and the tips will be straightforward to apply.
Raquel Duhaney and Charmaine Miller were awesome - so professional and down-to-earth. They made us feel so comfortable and engaged.
Positive Discipline Participant
"Through these informative and sometimes emotional sessions, I have learned to; better communicate with my co-parent, focus on the positive aspects of giving my daughter the freedom to love both parents, speak words of life and hope to and around my daughter about her other parent, exercise emotional maturity and most importantly realizing that THE END ADULT MATTERS MOST."
"Having just completed the 6-week workshop entitled Fathers First, I feel I now have additional tools with which to carry out my important role as a father to three wonderful boys. It's not often that the opportunity is available for a small group of fathers to spend time working together to improve their parenting skills, and I am happy to have had the chance to participate. It was obvious from our sessions that none of us are unique in our challenges as fathers and parents, and it was interesting to hear about the parenting challenges of others and to be given tools by the presenters to address those challenges. I would highly recommend the workshop to any of my friends who are fathers. Rachael and Robert were excellent facilitators, and I thoroughly enjoyed learning through them."

"Our family dynamics have changed forever because of your influence and the strategies you taught us over the 8-week course. We never would have thought that our special needs son’s behavior could have changed for the better by simply applying the parenting techniques you presented and reading the books you suggested. We have become much better parents because of our involvement and can’t thank you enough for all the one-on-one counseling and sharing of your expertise with us...We thank you again for this incredible opportunity to be a part of your programme."
Family Skills Programme Graduate
" I have more understanding about my teen...alittle more knowledge as to why my teen is acting a certain way and steps I can take to talk with my teen and other children."
"This workshop gives me the tools I needed to work with my teens. I didn't know how to deal or cope before but after this workshop I am better able to understand."
"I especially liked learning about brain development of a teen. The Take 5 is particularly helpful for me too because I tend to be rather hyper and fly off the handle."
I really want to say thank you to all in the FRC-team for doing such an incredible job. Thank you for putting together this training. It’s been very informative and educational to participate. I feel like I have gained more knowledge about Domestic Violence. It’s also been very interesting and shocking to see the statistics and number of DV cases here on the Island. You have really challenged my thoughts and let me get a different perspective on different things. I think that this training is going to be very helpful for me as a private person but also for my future professional self.

My experience of receiving assistance through the FRC has been immensely effective. Not only was my parent coach amazing, but also attending the SNAP programme to assist me in utilising the tools and skills learnt in terms of parenting our child. The team are all extremely knowledgeable in their field and provide immense support in terms of assisting parents help their kids with their individual issues
"The Young Parent Services programme benefited me in a lot of ways. I got to bond with other girls that were dealing with similar situations, they provided us with employment preparation and on-site work experience. We did parenting workshops before and after birth and we had guess teaching us art therapy, budgeting, yoga, CPR and much more. When the programme came to an end, I was emotional because I was so grateful for the opportunity to be a part it. I wanted it to last forever!"
