Testimonials

“Janine’s compassion for parents, youth and children in challenging circumstances is strong and unwavering.  Her encouragement, modelling and respect have given the parents she works with the forum to connect with each other, to find empowerment within themselves, and to find renewed hope for their relationship with their families and their children.” –  Program Director, Volunteer Parent Group
“After talking with Janine, I had a better understanding of my 8 and 11-year-old boys and why they did the things they did.  I had several questions and she helped me to answer them myself giving me clarity in my parenting style.  I realize what I say and do has a big impact on my children and I stopped getting angry with them and looked at what I was doing to create that reaction.  Thanks Janine!” – Kevin G.
“I thought I would lose my mind and that I tried everything.  Talking with Janine put things into perspective that I didn’t consider and now I enjoy an easier time with my children.” – Marilyn P.
“I found Janine to be understanding. She really listened to me and I feel I am a much better parent now.  I highly recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or separation.” – Anita B.
“Without family support raising children on your own is very difficult.  So many things I didn’t know how to handle or what to say to my children.  Janine helped me to stop and picture myself as the child and what would I want to hear and how to communicate that way.  Such a blessing!” – Jacqueline R.
 “I really needed some help with my teenage kids and Janine was there.  I wish I had met her a long time ago!” – Kim L
“Janine is full of wisdom and insights that I never thought of.  Thank you for helping me change into a better parent!” – Jennifer J.
“I recently married and my kids and my husband’s kids didn’t get on well.  Age difference is what I thought it was all about and that it would work itself out.  I am so glad I didn’t wait for that to happen.   My friend told me about Janine so I called her and let’s say it did take some work but we are now moving toward a much happier family.  Thank you so much!” – Lindsay D.
“Thank you again for your help!  You are so good at what you do!” – Cheryl L.
“I didn’t know how to approach the topic of divorce with my children and I wasn’t comfortable talking to my family or friends.  I like that talking to Janine was confidential and easy.  Things were more complicated as there is a divorce happening now too.  It was hard for me to ask for help but it is also the best advice I can give another father.” – Barry A.
