1. Parents are Benefitting from the Classes


I am so glad we signed up for this class!  I read books, attended seminars before but this one I love so much because it is so applicable. Every session I walked away knowing exactly what to do.  We were doing it all wrong. The over explaining, making sure they are not frustrated, praising constantly, the inconsistencies with our approach. I can go on and on… Thank you again Michele and  Jim!

I just wanted to express my appreciation for Michele and Jim.  James and I did gain a lot from the parenting classes.  And I feel that we were able to learn some very important principles at a perfect time for

– Nikki and James

The parent leadership four-part sessions led by Michele and Jim Aspinall are invaluable as we breach a dawn of social change that encourages a lack of “leadership” in parenting; we tend to value nurturing to the extreme of coddling which does not benefit the developing child perspective of the adult world they are headed for.

We truly appreciate your commitment in the education of our children, and anything we can learn from your wisdom I am that much smarter and better able to deal with situations at home with the kids. Thanks!

2. Parents Appreciate the Aspinalls’ Approach


I wanted to send a quick note and let you know how much we appreciate Michele and Jim. The parenting class was fantastic and they do a wonderful job. Beyond that, we feel truly fortunate to have them helping us to raise our family.

Jim and Michele are the types of people you want to be around and who you want around your children. They are fun, friendly, and warm. They clearly love their jobs and are good at them. They care. They are dedicated and they go above and beyond.

With the Aspinall’s, and the people you have at CDS, we have the utmost confidence that our children will grow into adults we can be proud of. What a special place and a well run organization! Nicely done. Thank you.
