    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

    From participants of the series at Redwood Day last year:

    I really love all the positive reinforcement for positive parenting received from Marcilie! My family and home are happier places as a result! — Lana Tillis, Mother of 2 Children

    Well-paced! Engaging! Tools to keep engagement high, motivation high, and retention high were executed really well!

    Both content and facilitator were excellent.  I feel hopeful again after feeling frustrated, angry, and resigned for so long.

    The material was presented in an engaging, fun, organized manner.  I feel that I have tools for the day to day challenges parenting my 3 and 7 YO children.

    Marcilie, you offer a balance of strong boundaries of class expectations (ie., begin and end on time) and a non-judgmental acceptance (kind) of all thoughts, suggestions, and shares.

    Informative and fun lessons.  I loved it very much.

    Marcilie makes the material very approachable and gives lots of great examples of how to implement
