I have found family support from Kaz to be very helpful since the start. Particularly with the phase my son is going through. The recommended solutions are very much life saving at times. Having spoken to her or knowing that I can discuss our present situation with an understanding person is a big relief and has lowered our distress levels.
I find Tani's communication clear and efficient. I find her efficiency refreshing and very reassuring
Kaz has supported us with our children’s behaviour when we have struggled with strategies of support and modelling different ways to do this. She has been a consistent figure of support through our journey of parenting and supporting with our Childs changing behaviours. Lovely lady thank you
Tani is brilliant, and so organised, she knows her work and what she is talking about. It makes it so much easier for us
I was struggling to get my first child to sleep when he was 8 months old and was going through a bad phase when Kaz gave me advice and support and printed relevant material. With her encouragement I managed to sleep train my child and he now sleeps through the night! I cannot tell you how grateful I am to her for this.
