Lisa was 45 at the time of completing our Nurturing Programme. She grew up with an abusive mother, ran away from home at the age of 16 and went into a relationship that became abusive and went on for 12 years. She later married into a happy relationship and had two children, but still feared she would model her parenting on how she was brought up herself.
"The Nurturing Programme for the first time in my life has really made me realise that in order to nurture my children I needed to nurture myself. The Parenting Puzzle is so easy to read and follow. My self-esteem has increased because I am aware now of my own personal power. I have let go of guilt [from my past]. It is facing these feelings that [means] I feel even more confident to help the children with theirs.
