“Thank you so much for inviting me to attend your 2 most recent seminars (via Skype). I found them to be incredibly informative, interesting and inspirational.
I want to share my story with your followers… My 5 year old daughter was having a crisis of confidence with finding her voice in her class of year 1 and 2 students. I wanted her to feel comfortable and confident with her own voice. I took your advice and started looking at options ‘outside of the box’ that I could do to help my daughter. I had a chat to her teacher about the options you discussed in your seminar. A key one we focused on was me taking pictures of activities we had done during the weekend, sending them to the teacher and then the teacher sharing the digital pics with the class at news time (when it was my daughter’s turn). My daughter and I had discussed me doing this, so she had planning time. The teacher was very supportive. When sharing time came, my daughter confidently stood in front of the class and shared using a clear, concise voice. WOW, what a difference! We have continued this activity and each time her confidence is increasing. Her general class speaking (without preparation) has also improved considerably.
As discussed with Ara, I also researched other activities I could do with helping my daughter ‘find her voice’. This term I enrolled her in singing lessons. This has further helped her voice confidence. Thank you so much Ara, I now feel we are on a path to helping my daughter with a life skill, which I see as very important. Without your suggestions, I would not have implemented these solutions.. I look forward to your next seminar and highly recommend anyone, with the opportunity to attend, take this up. Ara has such a vast wealth of knowledge on how we can support our children with their education, development and beyond.”
“I attended a session to learn more about the brain. I wanted to be able to learn more about my child and how the brain can impact behaviour. It was a great lesson in physiology. It also made me reflect on my own ability to act in certain situations. Now to put some of this in place…..! thank you Ara.”
