RCB Course Description
A Democratic Approach
In our fast-paced society, adults and children spend much of their time in separate environments. We all want to make the most of the time we have together, however, it can become difficult for us to give of ourselves or get what we want from our relationships.
You can have the kind of relationship with your children you have dreamed of, and you can help them develop skills to become loving, motivated and successful adults.
