This is what some of our child coaching clients told us about their experience and the results they achieved from it:
Louis has done amazingly well this year. I find it hard to believe how life was before we came to see you.
The last 12 weeks of school he had no days off at all. I went to a meeting at school and they showed me that in the first three terms he missed out 72 days of school. Can you believe it? 72 days out of 150 days?
Well, in 12 weeks he participated in Sports Day & Walk for a change & went on his end of year movie day which all included going on the bus. I’m writing this to you and crying. I still remember the fights every day and him crying in the car refusing to go to school. He was miserable and so did we. Honestly Ronit, I didn’t think it will never end. After so many years of struggling with him and his schooling, I went back to work. I finally have me time. As you said , it was good for him, good for me, good for all of us.
His second semester report card has A, B’s & C’s on it. I couldn’t be more proud. His teachers said that if he continues like this, he will be able to finish high school. He has three more years to go and he is on the right track.
It was a very scary slow start to this year, but he has found his groove & genuinely loving life. That’s all I can ask for. He is taking care of himself very well. We all take care of ourselves better now. When I brought him to you, I didn’t think it will impact our family, but it did.
Thank you for believing in him. Thank you for helping Louis find his spark and helping us recognise it. Thank you for all your help & guidance. You have been our saviour. I can’t thank you enough.
I promise to keep you updated.
Louis says "Hi".
I hope all is well with you and your family.
I wanted to send you a quick update on Sophie's progress after our sessions last year.
A quick recap - Sophie came to you last year as a grade 2 student and was having difficulty socially and academically...
Well, as you encouraged, I went with my gut instinct and changed Peter and Sophie to a more appropriate school. I repeated Sophie, keeping her down a grade in the last term of last year.
It’s been a positive 6 months. As an example - Today was sports day, and what a change in confidence. So different to last year where, at her previous school, she was withdrawn, socially awkward and misunderstood. It was so difficult to see her that way...
Today - very confident! Children were calling her to come play, she has developed a social group around her crossing both grades and year levels. She engages socially on a much better level (still quirky - but that's her). We find she is better understood at her new school and fits in.
Yesterday the first lot of report cards came in and I was very happy with the results - Sophie's 'Class Effort’ are classified as ‘Very High Effort’ and achieving all targets with High achievements for 3 subjects - including Maths 🙂
A few weeks back she received a school certificate for Student of the Week for her positive ‘Have a go’ attitude to all tasks. It has been a much more enjoyable year. Sophie and Peter have taken up weekly Drumming lessons which has made noticeable changes. I attend weekly school activities with them and help where I can.
Luke and I are both very Happy with the progress Sophie is making and enjoying watching her grow into a wonderful and confident young lady we always knew her to be.
Thank you for being a part of her growth
All The Best to you and your family.

I am more understanding of who Jude is and appreciate who he is more. He is auditory and this presents a challenge for someone like me who is digital. I don’t understand why he always has to make noise but I can handle it most of the time now and I laugh a lot more knowing that is just who he is. I try to cater more to his needs and abilities now that I know more about who is. I believe he will grow up being more comfortable with who is because we support who is fully now whereas before we didn't quite understand why he could never shut up.
I am more satisfied with our relationship. I love him more, if that is possible.

Our son was having difficulty with friendships at school along with displaying poor in-class behaviour. We could see that lack of self confidence was part of his problem. My husband and I first met Ronit years ago when we reached out for some help with our relationship. We have both stayed in touch with Ronit since and I knew she was the right person for Isaac to talk to about school. Ronit listened to Isaac and quickly built a rapport with Isaac. Ronit supported us as parents as well, by being available to us to talk through issues as they arose and offering advice. After building up Isaac's confidence and belief in himself and his capabilities, Isaac returned to the "happy" person he deserves to be. We are very happy that he is back to his happy self. Thank you Ronit. Our whole family has benefited from knowing you.

I would not just recommend this "Happy Parents Raise Happy Kids" program to my friend but also tell all the parents on our Better Start Program. Everything we learned was useful. I liked how Ronit was a living, walking, talking example of what she is promoting. How authentic she was about her family and herself. The handouts were excellent. Ronit is a world class. I have a huge respect for her intellectual and emotional intelligence. We are lucky to have the privilege of her wonderful company and insight.

The workshop triggered emotional and issues which I realized I should I address because it effects me. I loved the communication styles and being positive, the focus feeding the right wolf. I liked the examples. I liked the theory and the research. I would tell my friends who lack positivity with family to go and do the program as soon as possible.

My daughter's spelling has improved out of sight. Every week, they are given 8 spelling words to learn, put into sentences and write them four times. On average she is getting 7/8.
She comes home with new homework each week and is straight into it instead of trying to avoid it. We have bought her 3 of the fairy books (chapter books) and she is doing her best to read them any spare time she gets. Thanks to you, my daughter is a totally different person. She is so full of confidence and so much happier.
As my oldest daughter has said, "I now smile" and seem to be so much more at ease. I have reduced my tablet intake ... by more than half. To me that is a huge thing. I am now spending a lot more time with both of the girls with their homework and just playing around.
My daughter's teacher requested a copy of your report to read so he could learn more about my daughter and how he was able to better help and support her.
Thank you so much for helping us all with my daughter!
