  21. 21. T<br />TESTIMONIAL<br />This program has really helped me. It has given me understanding of:<br />The difference of parents… from what a mother gives, to what a father gives, in different ways to the child. <br />How it takes forgiveness of self and others to recondition self.<br />Helps me understand the mother, the woman and how they work as a person.<br />Has taught me how to take and react to certain situations with my children.<br />Taught me some of the different outcomes, of positive and negative ways that your child could suffer from when a situation isn’t handled properly.<br />Thank you so very much.<br />NFL Graduate Chuck Smith <br />4/12/08<br />
