 What Parents are saying

“Attended a presentation by CounterPunch last night held by Mercedas; in that brief introduction in to the teenage brain and development I had quite a few lightbulb moments that made more sense than anything I have heard before in trying to understand teenagers (of which I have two). There were also quite a few laughs, thanks Merc.  I intend to follow up this knowledge with the CounterPunch Parent workshop next month to help me be the best parent I can be, and of course I will still fail at times; but I know I can always be better and build and improve on my relationship with my children, to help them grow in to the best independent adults they can be”. Jacquie

“Just attended the presentation at Hahndorf Primary School about Counter Punch. Thanks Merc for sharing your experience and knowledge… in so many areas. I have never been one for parent workshops, or self-help books so it was a pleasant surprise to hear some fantastic information that I really think can help with some of the tricky parts of my parenting. It’s great to find ways forward with these kids we care about when we feel a bit lost. Really appreciate it. Looking forward to the workshop in Feb”.  Joy
