Deborah invites us to imagine what it's like to be a child - a whole person with an innate drive to grow, explore and learn. She is uplifting, and I found that this feeling spilled over into my home with my son and with my husband. I am a happier, braver, more trusting, and more confident mother. It changed me forever and I will be eternally grateful to Deborah for bringing RIE to my family.

Studying with Deborah has had a huge impact on my life, made our home life and communication much less stressful, and equipped us with tools, knowledge, and the ability to set realistic expectations. Above all, it has shown me a new way to view parenting. It was truly life-changing and has brought so much joy and perhaps most importantly, confidence to me as a parent.

It’s amazing how I feel more confident, more peaceful and more hopeful. I got a real paradigm shift, a real mindset shift, a real change of vision of what respectful parenting could be. I know what it sounds like, what it feels like, what it looks like and I have a clearer understanding of what it can be. I truly owe it to Deborah to parent in this way. Studying with Deborah transformed my relationship with my child.
