This is what some of our parent coaching clients told us:
I wanted to write to share something with you.
I know I was mainly working on my mentoring for my work with my clients but I had big concerns about my daughter's ability to make decisions. Although her IQ is high, I have noticed she very rarely uses logic and reasoning in everyday life - to the point where I was concerned if she would ever be able to be safe and make good decisions out on her own.
I can't tell you how much this has changed. It seems like she has matured 3 years in 3 or 4 months! I see her going through 3 or 4 step processes/thinking to make decisions today and making amazingly smart and insightful decisions, where before she couldn't keep more than one thing in her mind at a time.
The only thing I changed was that I stopped giving commands, and started asking the right questions to instruct and motivate. I know this is what has caused the great results! So thank you for leading me to that.

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 So different to last year where, at her previous school, she was withdrawn, socially awkward and misunderstood.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.
Susan M., Queensland, Australia, June 2016
Thank you for last night. We both came out of our session feeling relaxed and strangely a little more at peace with our situation.
I am very surprised but happy to say the Derek had a positive reaction to the session and is looking forward to our next one in a fortnight.
Ronit thank you for your guidance and I am very much looking forward to feeling this burden that I have been carrying with me for so long eased and lifted. Admittedly I've noticed a change within myself, but my son Dale even said that I was a "little strange" today. Hopefully in a good way!
I put the rating technique into action straight away last night as Dale was awake when we got home complaining that he couldn't sleep because of a runny nose. His behaviour was escalating but I asked him to rate his frustration from 1 to 10. Just like you said he would, he said 73, but he did calm down! Yay!!!
He was home sick today, so I continued to use it for both positive and negative feelings and I have to say our home has been calmer today. Phew! My daughter, Livia has also responded well to it!!
I will definitely be using the NLP Trick you taught me.
Thank you again and see you in two weeks.
Take care and keep smiling!
Clearly presented, functional and easily understood. Don't change anything. Highly recommended!
Mark T, Father of 3, Parent coaching, 2014
Thank you Ronit for a wonderful and insightful session. I didn't realize how people (including myself), young and old, receive what is said and done differently. I do now.
Lisa M , Parent coaching , communication session, 2006, Brisbane, Australia
I'm happy to have learned that it is good to set rules and boundaries as I've always been worried about being too strict and so I became too soft. I feel so much more confident now after the parent coaching to set the rules at home.
Betty, Better Parenting Skills Program, 2007, Brisbane, Australia
Thank you very much! You have given me a lot to work on at home and much more positive outlook on improving.
Sheryl, Parnent coaching, 2005, Brisbane, Australia
I liked the consistency of the parenting program. It was clear, positive and easy to implement and above all, it works, thanks Ronit
Tony W., Better Parenting Skills Program, 2007, Brisbane, Australia
After 4 weeks of coaching, I have become less worried and stressed about things and if feels fantastic
Jo, parent coaching, 2007, Brisbane, Australia
Thank you Ronit for a very insightful workshop. I was very happy with your confidence and your quick response to every question
Lena, mother, 2006, Brisbane, Australia
I always thought it takes longer to make a change... I couldn't believe how fast the change at home happened
Claire B. Happy Parents Raise Happy Kids, Macgregor, 2007
This is my third workshop with Be Happy in LIFE. Every workshop was so different. Even when I thought I have learned everything in the previous workshop, I discover new things about myself. I love getting new ideas and seeing them work
Courtney, 2007, Brisbane, Australia
I loved doing the workshops with my partner. We improved the communication between us and we can already see it working on our children. Thank you!
Michelle H., Parent coaching, 2007
I love my kids very much and I spend a lot of money on them. Attending this workshop was the best investment I made
Allan, Parenting workshop, 2005, Brisbane, Macgregor, Australia
I was very surprised. It was not at all what I have expected. It gave me a new insight about a lot of things about my parenting style and new strategies and methods I didn't know. After two weeks, I already feel more confident in my parenting
Steve, Father, Macgregor state Primary School, 2006, Brisbane, Australia
I love it! I loved every part of this program. It was great realizing that if I change, I can affect others around me
Naomi A. Mother, Kimberley Park , Parenting Focus Program, 2005, Brisbane, Australia
Thank you Ronit for a wonderful and insightful workshop. I am happy I came with my husband as we both needed to be on the same level when working with our daughters. Your examples were so useful and put things in perspective

I first met Ronit about 6 or 7 years ago during a very difficult time in my life. I was at a crossroads in my life. I was feeling very unhappy. I was always confused as to why life was so hard & what was the meaning of it all. Big questions! This one particular day, I literally just googled "how to be happy". I thought that happy people must know something that I don't and I wanted some answers.
Ronit's website popped up. I did some reading & made the appointment. It was exactly what I needed. Ronit taught me all about the different personalities of people & how we all learn, behave & react differently to different things. This helped me to understand my partner better & ultimately save our marriage.
Over the years I have been able to use all of the techniques that Ronit has taught me. I set a goal & see myself achieving it. With this, I have ran a half marathon, built my dream home, set up a successful business, created a happy marriage & have two beautiful daughters.
Most recently, I was having trouble with my daughter's school teacher. She was being a bully to the kids & as it was my first experience with primary school for my kids, I wasn't sure what to do. I contacted Ronit who was able to see me. Ronit gave her time to me generously. She didn't rush me. We went over so many things in our time. Most importantly, I realised that the courage was within me to confront the school & ultimately have our daughter moved to a new class, where she has been extremely happy ever since.
Ronit has taught me to trust my inner compass. That the answers are within me if I just sit & listen. She will always tell me the truth & what is needed to be heard. Her perspective on things is a blessing. I would recommend her services to anyone who asks me.
I wish you well Ronit.
Thank you for everything.
Tiffany Smith, Gold Coast, QLD Australia
I recently attended one of your seminars in Hawthorne in February and i cannot stop thinking about how much I have learnt and about what I have read on your website about happy life and how to achieve happiness in marriage. It is all so true but hard to implement at times.
Thank you kindly for your time and for being so inspiring to me. You have started changing my life.
Laura, Good Sams workshop, February 2013 Howthorn
I enjoyed the informative and refreshing perspective and insight gained. Thank you! For everything!
David, parenting workshop, 2005, Brisbane, Australia
I enjoyed all the sessions. Practically how to be positive...
Margaret C. Happy Parents Raise Happy kids, 2006, Brisbane, Australia
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.
Dennis and Leanne Henry, Parents
I found Ronit very interesting. Her examples were very good. She was very approachable. I particularly liked the communication style and the pink elephants and how to keep giving the love I have been giving. I would tell any parent "Just do it!"
Robert Morris, Dad, Happy Parents Raise Happy Kids, November 2012
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.
Gillian Fleming, Parenting workshop, November 15th 2012
It was interesting and eye opening overview. I would recommend people to read the homework to get the most out of the educational material and then use the daily affirmations. It was a good reflection on what we wish for our children, I like the positive affirmation, the importance of touch and the communication style. Ronit was inclusive of all and highly skilled.
Good Sams Project, Ipswich
The course material was excellent. The coach had great sense of humour and she was very clear. The examples were great and I found he stories useful and interesting.
Deb, Parenting workshop, Australia, Good Sams Project
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.
Sajeda Singh, Ipswich Workshop, Good Sams Project, 15/11/12
It was practical, easily adopted to our busy life. I found the pink elephants and communication style most useful. I wish we had more time. Interacting with others and playing "fairy" games were fun and the examples were great. A lot was imported in a short time but overall enjoyable and easy to retain and easy to think about how to put it into practice. Ronit was very professional and well presented. She fully answered all questions. Her coaching style was free, open, friendly and very accepting. It is a program I believe I can do and continue and the goals are obtainable by our whole family.
Thank you so much!
Mother, Good Sams Project, Ipswich
This workshop is very worthwhile, not just for parenting your child. It reaffirmed some of my beliefs. Ronit was excellent, engaging and interesting. d. She was fun and personal and very patience. I give it 10 out of 10.
Gary Connell, Ipswich workshop, Good Sams project
I loved the white wolf, black wolf activity. The examples given were appropriate and thought provoking.
It was like open heart surgery. I am not the same person I was when I came this morning.
Derek Brady, Father of 2, Principal, Brisbane, Australia
I didn't realise how people (including myself) receive what is said and done differently. I do now.
Lisa, Better Parenting Skills Program, 2006, Brisbane, Australia
I loved the hugs and the social aspect... listening to other people's life situation. I think I need to attend more sessions.
Sal, Better Parenting Skills Program, 2007, Brisbane, Australia
I liked the time management session in particular... I wonder how I got to be 40 years old and not able to just 'get it'. I have a lot to learn. I'm looking forward for the next workshop.
Grace Yap, Better Parenting Skills Program, 2006, Brisbane, Australia

I love it! It was great realizing that if I change, I can affect others around me.
Naomi, Parent coaching, 2005, Brisbane, Australia
Just a quick feedback to you regarding the Parenting Workshop that concluded tonight.
I enjoyed myself throughout the sessions that I attended. Initially, I thought it might be one of those standard parenting courses I have attended before, but Ronit took us through perspectives that are refreshing and new.
The course covered aspects of emotional intelligence, communicative skills, beliefs and values, and other radical but practical approaches to familial situations. This course applies to self-improvement, besides parenting...
Grace Yap, in a letter to Macgregor State School principal after our parent coaching workshop
By implementing what I have learnt, I've seen changes within our family that have really contributed to happier and satisfying relationships.
