Hear what parents say

“I was astounded when my son got into the car after the first lesson and said he loved it.”

“I cannot imagine how young adults of today would ever learn the etiquette, grace and social interaction skills without the instruction you provide. There is a richness in your lessons that will make these young people into better adults.”

“Kids need to learn this from someone other than their parents.”

“I have told so many people what important work you and your team are doing and how you are changing our young people’s lives. Being the mother of a child with social skills challenges, this is beyond my wildest dreams.”

“You teach things that most kids do not learn anywhere else.”

“Thank you so much for your great work with our children this year. I saw a noticeable difference in my son's social skills -- especially his willingness to greet adults, shake hands, and make proper introductions when his grandparents were visiting. Very impressive.”
