Effective Parenting through Meltdowns and Tantrums

1 hour workshop

I just returned from your workshop and it was so helpful and informative that I felt compelled to write you the minute I walked in the door. I actually applied one of your techniques already and it worked! I honestly was not expecting such a wealth of support and guidance that could be used so practically and immediately. I found your workshop incredibly useful and my wife and I truly feel that this one short hour gave us many new tools to use in coping with and ending our child's tantrums. I will highly recommend your company to anyone in need and I cannot wait to attend another one of your workshops. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you -Craig and Jaime Delmarco

Turn your Picky Eater Into a Health One

1 hour workshop

We found the workshop to be informative and Juarline and Margarita to be very down-to-earth and approachable, we decided to sign up for a 6-week individualized session with them to assist with our picky-eater daughter. Because of their real-world advice and guidance and easy-to-implement weekly plans of action, our daughter is eating much better and our lives are no longer focused around her eating issues. She is much happier, because we are much happier, and Juarline and Margarita are the reasons. We highly recommend them! –Julie and Andrew O’Donnell

Parent Anger Management: Be the Calmer Parent You want to Be

2 hour workshop

My morning ran smoother by applying some of your techniques, rather than my usual ranting and raving, it put an end to the drama rather quickly...For the first time in forever I actually didn't have to scream to get out the door...Wow! I wish I found you guys sooner - Adrienne R.

High Functioning Family has proven to be a wonderful resource for families and our school!  Margarita Daskalakis and Juarline Stavrinos are easy to speak to and very personable.  They are extremely informative and well versed in Early Childhood.  High Functioning family hosted workshops at the Growing Tree that provided strategies and tips for everyday frustrating situations that occur with our children.  Parents were able to open up and share their own stories.  It was an enriching learning experience!”
