    Positive Discipline offers great tools to help you connect to your child and to parent with love. Marcilie knows her stuff!  She is well prepared, uber-organized, and really entertaining. As a teacher of small children and a mom of two boys under six, I found my time in Marcilie's class to be truly life-changing. Every week, I left excited to try out the tools, tips, and tricks learned in class and looked forward to going back for more. Routine Charts transformed our mornings and Family Meetings increased the household love. Everyone could benefit from looking at their parenting and trying to improve. Marcilie gives parents the tools to improve and brings the Positive Parenting philosophy to life!  - Sara Hampton, Mother of 2 Redwood Day Children
