We sought your counsel as our son needed a gentle push to focus and apply himself to various tasks. By utilising the recommendations, the positive reinforcement such as acknowledgement for completing a task, and having him feel he is working as part of a team in the morning, we have experienced positive results! Furthermore, he asks to read your book School’s Coming as he is visual learner and connects with the characters, being your two children. I highly recommend the use of your positive feedback / team work methodology and your book as a visual reinforcement. Well done and thank you!

Getting my son out the door for kindy has involved a lot of bribing and mostly me dressing him and doing everything just to get out the door on time. Decided this has to stop for school next year but wasn't sure how effective I would be. Using the School's Coming cards has provided me the framework to start this routine. Getting my son's involvement in sorting the order he wants to do things was a fun and positive experience. Now with a reference point we can both work from, I'm sure by the time he starts school we will have the routine down pat and a much less stressful morning period.

My son is starting school next year and reading School’s Coming in bed at night has certainly helped him step up his level of responsibility when getting ready each morning. I find since having read the book a few times he is more eager to dress himself, pack his bag and be a real team player. We hi-5 every accomplishment in the morning which motivates him to do it better and faster next time. Thank you for sharing this book with us. It’s really helped in so many ways.
