Dear Katherine,

Thank you for an incredible seminar! The handout was very helpful to have prior to the seminar; your energy was great - I like that your words are so positive for what can seem to me a rather daunting subject (changing my child's thought patterns). I'm VERY impressed with your knowledge and presented material. I know that I am very committed to sharing these skills with my child and myself! And I will be signing up for your next seminar.

Well done, Katherine. Your services will be a tremendous benefit to many, many families!

Katherine Larson is a parenting encyclopedia with a heart. Katherine has been the single most important individual in the growth, development and refinement of my parenting skills.

Katherine Larson is a woman of tremendous talents and abilities. Her keen intelligence, compassion and competence were immediately apparent when I first met her seven years ago. Katherine was a member of a parenting support group I joined and it was evident that she was a person who was held in very high esteem by the other parents.

Katherine's wisdom, kindness, knowledge and understanding has been of tremendous support to the parents in the group. She is diligent in her efforts to raise her children to be self-fulfilled, caring people and she inspires all of us who know her.

My tween daughter has enjoyed the benefits of participating in a girls' group moderated by Katherine. She found it empowering and what the girls learned has helped them successfully navigate through the rocky shoals of preadolescent social stresses.

I would dare to say that, besides my husband and partner, Katherine has been the single most influential person in my life as a parent.

She is beyond knowledgeable, a font of information -- no matter what the subject or problem.

Katherine's empathy and understanding of both me and my children throughout their lives as students in elementary school, through Junior High School, High School and beyond have been constant.

Katherine listens, considers, suggests, responds and recommends according to the issues at hand and the individual needs of both the kids and us as their parents.

I have been constantly encouraged, uplifted, benefited by Katherine's insights and knowledge of whatever confused or discouraged me along the way. I always leave Katherine feeling better about myself, able to laugh at life and its challenges --- knowing that my kids are going to all right.

Katherine Larson's extraordinary talents have been integral to my journey as a parent.

Dr. Larson has been a client, friend and confidant for more than a dozen years. Katherine's efforts have encouraged children to do more than they realized they could, and certainly more than their peers and leaders thought possible.

Katherine has the ability to light a spark in a child - a spark that resides within each of us, but which is often hidden from view. Her caring is obvious. Her results, as reported through her workplace and as seen in parents' eyes are clear.

I am thrilled to learn that Katherine is sharing her experience and expertise with parents through "Raise Inspired Kids." I met Katherine over ten years ago when we were members of a support group for internationally adopting parents. Later she became a leader of group of mothers working in the area of attachment which I joined.

I always find Katherine to be a wonderful mix of enthusiasm and common sense. She has a deep commitment to children and to helping parents to understand their needs. Because children cannot always tell us about their feelings, parents benefit from coaching and education delivered in a loving way.

I count Katherine as colleague as well as friend. For the past two years, I have been a child developmental therapist working with children on bonding issues. I recommend Katherine with confidence to any of the families I've worked with.

Katherine offers me really useful insights about a wide range of issues, such as navigating through peer pressure, how to help my child sustain important friendships, move on and learn from disappointments, be open to different approaches and opinions, and above all, take responsibility for creating his own life experience.

I believe that the message and tools that she brings to parents and families is so important! We are living in extraordinary times and we ALL - parents and children -need to feel inspired to be our best selves. Katherine's knowledge, support, and energy help us meet that challenge.

Katherine, thank you for your heart and your belief in these kids, that they can and do make a difference in the world! I have seen it in Room 14 and at recess and just think of how far the kindness of one classroom of children can reach! You came in each Friday and addressed issues that touch their own lives. You are such a positive influence at our school! Thank you!

I would like to share a personal story how one person can truly make a difference. Katherine came into my son's classroom as a parenting consultant/co-participant. Her topics were geared towards providing kids with compassionate tools when they find themselves in precarious situations. One particular day, she was teaching the kids not to take, grab, or demand - rather than having one child in a powerful position and the other feeling inferior, or violated, Katherine taught them just by saying "would you be willing?" before they take, grab, or demand. This puts the kids on an even standing; one of compassion and respect and mostly being heard. My son brought this tool home. In turn, we brought this tool to our family reunions on both sides. She truly does raise inspired kids!!

My mommy is a great mommy because she is brave, humorous, smart, awesome and observant. Someone I know caught a cricket and said he had good luck and I said I had enough luck in my subconscious mind that I will ever need! My mom taught me that! I help my Mommy with spelling! (She knows a little bit more spelling than me though).
