"I first met Valerie when I heard her give her engaging, thoughtful, and informative presentation, The Top 10 Myths about Positive Discipline, at The Mabin School. She’s funny, which is a big plus when we’re talking about the sometimes painful topic of the challenges we face with our children. I was so impressed that I invited her to speak to my own membership community of parents three times over the past 4 years. My community learned so much and enjoyed her talks. Any parent community would be fortunate to have Valerie as a speaker."

“My first experience with Valerie as a facilitator was in a Joyfull Parenting workshop organized by the Parent Council at my son’s school. It was full of humour and wisdom. Valerie shared her knowledge and expertise so candidly and with such humility. I wish that everyone could tap into these insights!"

“Working with Valerie is truly a pleasure. She listens closely and without judgment to your concerns, and then offers many different suggestions for you to consider. Her positive, can-do attitude is infectious. For any teacher thinking of using Positive Discipline in their classroom, I would highly recommend consulting with Valerie.”


Amanda Ritch

“Valerie’s humour, passion, love and authenticity makes her shine on so many beautiful levels. I’ve taught adults all around the world for years how to be teachers AND the way Valerie teaches is exactly my goal for them. She cares so deeply – it has a rippling effect on the world and impacts so many lives.
