"The Positive Discipline class taught me so many great skills on ways to make interacting with my children a positive experience for all of us. It gave me many solutions to the battles that seemed to reoccur. Our household has become more calm and collected and we all have a mutual respect for one another. I highly recommend this course!" - Dawnelle Smith

I took the Positive Discipline class with Susanna with the hopes that I would have better skills and more patience with my kids. I walked away with tools and so much more. Susanna's emphasis on empathy and desired outcome, coupled with "the rules" we grew up with, has made an incredible impact on not only my family, but myself. I recognized that some of my old childhood hurts were not fully healed, and I was carrying them forward with my children. Through exploring what I wanted for and from my children, I have also been able to heal myself. I highly recommend this class to anyone who is curious about parenting techniques that help you feel more centered and connected with your children.  -Katie Johnson, Renton, WA, parent to "kids" ages 21, 16, and 8

My son struggles with negative thoughts and perfectionism, and Susanna was exactly what we needed! She has taught him so many skills to overcome many of his challenges and he has really listened and applied them. We are so grateful for the Thrive Hive. - Breanna Morris,  mother to James, age 7
