The most beneficial session for me was the stress session because I realized through the session that sometimes things can be going down outside of your home that causes stress on the inside of your home. We learned how to deal with those things that could better help you to calm yourself and realize what’s really going on so you don’t take it out on the wrong people which is your family, your kids, and your loved ones. ~Parents On Point graduate 2023
