Ron and Felicity Vignone

As an attorney I am logical and persuasive. I could not imagine what a parenting course could possibly provide but my wife convinced me to join her. We have 2 year old twins. The methods and insight I gained during this course have been invaluable. They have improved communication with respect to my work, our marriage and will no doubt pay off for a lifetime of raising our children. I encourage every parent to take this course.

Christopher Arvin, Esq

As two busy professionals my husband and I cannot thank Kim and Melanie enough for opening the time bank to maximize our enjoyment with our kids in the time we have available. I highly recommend this course.

Monique Lafia

RCB has revolutionized the art of parenting. The techniques really work. I now have the tools to get the results I always hoped for. Kim and Melanie are fabulous. Every Parent can benefit from this course!

Nan Summerfield

It is hard to believe how spending merely a few hours can produce such impressive results. Kim and Melanie provided a toolbox of skills in a fun and interactive way which have immensely enhanced my relationship with my toddlers. The value of this course is priceless.

Shari Evans

I signed up with a friend; after I completed the course I convinced my husband to sign up for the next course. The information is fantastic… this course is a must!
