"I love all the Care Courses I have taken. I am in the process of taking  [Toilet Learning]  your courses and find them extremely helpful. Also I have shared some of the suggestions regarding potty training with one of my families. Their little one although 3 years old has had no interest in potty training and they were a bit worried when they were seeing no results at all. I wanted to be a support to them but felt he was not ready for toilet training yet and did not want the little one to get frustrated. After reading some of the information I suggested, they realized that he is just not ready for toilet training at this time. They have decided to be patient and wait a couple of months before trying again. WHEW!! Thank you for some great info." - Westminster, Colorado
"This course [Abuse and Neglect: a Caregiver's Guide to Child Abuse] was so interesting. I truly enjoyed it. Thank you for being there for us. Looking forward to the next one." - Colorado Springs, Colorado
