Here are some testimonials about Jennifer Kolari’s various books and webiste:

Testimonials (taken from Jennifer’s book – “You’re Ruining My Life! Surviving the teenage years with Connected Parenting)

You’re Ruining My Life!…is an accessible and often entertaining guide to understanding the importance of communication in the parent-child relationship and how changes in the teen’s brain can make loving, supportive connection difficult to maintain.  Filled with practical steps and memorable stories, the insights of Kolari’s important book will help the parent both survive and thrive through these crucial and challenging times.”

– Daniel J. Siegel M.D., executive director, Mindsight Institute, clinical professor UCLA School of Medicine, co-author ofThe Whole-Brain Child and Parenting from the Inside Out and author of Mindsight and The Developing Mind

“Kolari helps parents understand complicated teen brain chemistry and offers practical parenting advice that is respectful and effective.”  – Alyson Schafer, auther of Honey, I Wrecked the Kids

Connected Parenting works!  This is more than a book on parenting, it is a blueprint for understanding healthy communications for all relationships.  These techniques have become a way of life for our family and have helped me both professionally and as a parent.  It will change your life for the better!” – Dr. Sue Ball, Ph.D., C. Psych.

Testimonials (taken from Jennifer’s book – Connected Parenting)
“A must read for parents, educators, and any other adults who want to connect in a deeply caring and positive way with the children in their lives.”  – Barbara Coloroso, bestselling author of kids are worth it!
“Kolari’s strategy works on the most wound up child….Parenting doesn’t come with a textbook – Connected Parenting[comes] close.” – Susan Ormiston, broadcaster, CBC
“How you respond to your child is how your child learns to respond to you.  Focus on control when the child is oppositional or upset and power struggles are likely to ensue.  Focus on empathy, however, as Jennifer Kolari advocates, and concern for the child will encourage cooperation from the child, enabling the possibilities of constructive change.” – Carl Pickhardt, Ph.D., author of Stop the Screaming: How to Turn Angry Conflict with Your Child 


Testimonials from Parents (taken from Jennifer Kolari’s website)

“Just when you think you’re the worst parent in the world bringing up hateful alien demons, the Connected Parenting techniques remind you that you are NOT-you’re raising children you love. I’ve learned how to truly put aside my own agenda and be in the moment with my child. Mistakes are accepted and even welcomed as an opportunity to repair.”

-Robin, Connected Parenting client

“We felt we had tried every parenting technique in the world and nothing seemed to make a difference in helping us and our son cope with the difficult behaviours he has because of ADHD. It felt like there was no light at the end of the tunnel. Then we found Connected Parenting. These strategies were crucial to rebuilding the bonds of trust and respect that the challenging behaviours had eroded.”

-Michael, Connected Parenting client
