As a dad, I'm so glad I took Lily's class. It gave me a much better understanding of my kids, my own reactions to them, and how to build the relationship I want with them--not just now, but over the long-term. And by helping me appreciate that my shortcomings are natural, Lily gave me the tools to improve upon them and to be more accepting of myself.
