What Makes Kerry's Classes So Special?

There are lots of parenting classes to choose from, so why choose Kerry’s?

For starters, Kerry has the credentials: a master’s degree, a post-graduate degree in marriage and family therapy, and certification from the Love and Logic Institute. Secondly, Kerry has tenure: she was certified by Love and Logic in 1999 and has been teaching ever since. Thirdly, Kerry is the mother/stepmother of six, including five adolescent males who are in high school and college. She is “living the dream,” sharing the bathroom and refrigerator with five young men, not to mention her husband and teenage stepdaughter. Talk about real-life experience with a lot of different real-life kids. Kerry understands being a married stay-at-home mom, a single, working and going-to-school mom, and a happily married mom and stepmom with a whole herd of children.

When you take classes from Kerry, you get a Love and Logic certified instructor PLUS the wisdom and insight that comes from years of workshops and working with families and parents. You get to learn about how to meet your child’s emotional needs, how to get on the same page with your partner, and how to adjust techniques to fit the temperament of your individual child using your individual values. You also get to know a professional who could end up being your private parenting coach or counselor, should the need arise.
