Feedback from new ‘Nurture Your Children’s Heart to Greatness’ Workshop – April 2014

AMAZING – WOW – FANTASTIC… Best, most worthwhile workshop. This workshop not only helped me as a teacher and parent but also helped me in myself. Now I know it needs to start with me and unconditional love. This workshop is a HAVE TO! This workshop has to go places, especially in early childhood education. This is a message that more teachers HAVE to hear.

This workshop is a MUST! This needs to be implemented in day care centres, early childhood facilities and schools. What do we need to do to get this to happen?

The workshop provided me with worthwhile tips, strategies and direction. Lillian’s ability to connect and decipher great information and share her experiences enabled us to reconsider what we have been doing as parents and reprogram ourselves and learn to love ourselves first! If you want to improve your experiences with your kids and yourself you need to attend.

I would highly recommend this program and workshop to any parent, grandparent, carer or educator who wants to create a closer relationship and positive outcome when relating to children of any age. The Nurtured Heart Approach and the techniques it provides for calming and empowering children is very unique and not used widely from what I have experienced. The principles are simple yet very effective and easily implemented into a family, classroom or individually and can be used for adults as well. If people want closer connection I believe there is no better approach that I could recommend. The workshop provided strategies that empower youth and children from a completely different perspective by praising their greatness in comparison to controlling their behaviour.

This workshop is definitely beneficial for both in the classroom environment and with my own four children. I really enjoyed it and found it was a very worthwhile workshop. You will leave feeling empowered and liberated. It is an excellent workshop for Kindy’s. Thank you! Both you and Paul are very passionate about what you do and it is contagious! I do have to admit that it has left me wanting more information and possibly some assistance on really getting to grips with the Nurtured Heart Approach. As an educator and a mum, I am very aware of the importance of positive interactions with children but have found that since the workshop it has been so in the forefront of my mind when dealing with the little people in my classroom as well as my own teenagers at home. A benefit to all! Hope to learn more about your approach in the near future. Many thanks, once again!

This workshop was an open forum to discuss thoughts, feelings and experiences. It was a place to learn from others and well as the presenters. It was a place to hear and reinforce good aspects of our relationships and the strategies that we already use but at the same time learn/hear new ways of being the best we can.

General Feedback for Lillian Reekie

Thank you Lillian for a wonderful inspiring day, we are already seeing the results from what we learnt. We both thank you; no one else of many who we have sought help with Alyssa has delivered such positive results. We are so grateful we have found you and Nathan. We now have light at the end of the tunnel towards a happy family.

My husband and I attended the Parenting Workshop and found it to be enlightening and inspiring. We took away some gems that we are incorporating in our family such as the ‘Switch It Game’ and ‘Using Words as Gifts’. Thank you Lillian for sharing your insights and providing some effective parenting tools.

We have implemented the gratitude discussion, every night at the dinner table. Our 5 yr old (with ADHD) in particular will say 3 or 4 things that are really positive which is great. Trent, my husband has a new philosophy that he shared with the boys “be smarter not louder” instead of yelling think first of how they can impact others. Small things but it’s working! There is also a noticeable difference with Trent. Both my mum and his parents have been impressed with his reactions. He has been calm, firm but fair. There’s been no need for yelling.

I also loved the course for the interactions with other parents, just knowing we’re not the only ones out there going through this. Sharing tips and tricks was great! We’re all moving forward in a positive, happy & loving family way. Thank you so much Lillian.

Your Parenting Seminar was so informative, entertaining, eye opening but yet so easy to follow. Your amazing one day workshop enabled parents to go to a whole new level of implementing these practical and easy to understand strategies into our homes. I personally have had a lot of fun reminding our family to use the switch it game and have become so much more aware of the language we are using every day. Horsham and the wider region were so privileged to have you come to our school community and share and impart your invaluable knowledge. We can’t wait for you to return so that we can encourage even more parents to attend your awesome seminars and workshops.

Some time back, I attended one of your sessions at Nerang Council building. My daughter was also very interested – having been a chronic eczema sufferer – and now she is the mum of a 11 year old ADHD / Aspergers / Autistic son – well, lets say that’s the diagnosis doctors gave for him. He has excelled this year, going from doing year 2 school work to now currently doing year 6 work AND class captain. This is predominantly through lifestyle changes, and we treasure what we’ve learned from you, your passion for change, and improving the lives of people. Thank you.
