Parent Testimonials: Summer 2017
By: a mother who participated in a community ICDP Parenting Learning Group
“There are many ways of expressing love. I have been practicing what I am learning here. My daughters are rebels; one is very expressive. I have changed my method of showing love. Before I acted as if I had the power. Now, I put myself on her level. I ask, ‘why are you screaming at me?’ I think ‘you are screaming because you learned it from me.’ One day, one of my daughters, while I was bathing her, screamed loudly at me. I changed my ways. I lowered my voice, I hugged her and she told me ‘sorry’ after I asked her not to scream at me.
It’s beautiful when you open your mind and when you are not living in that cycle –
of say, I am the mom and you will obey me.”

“This program helped me so much. It helped me with the worries I have with my family and now that I am alone but little by little with this program I am moving forward, I am finding a way to talk to my children more often with more love and affection so that they can be happy and that they feel more comfortable to come to me when they have problems and I can help them to keep going in their life. Love our children, listen to them and understand them so they don’t feel alone and this way
you can have a happy family.”
