As a new parent, you are constantly bombarded with opinions, parenting techniques, advice, do’s/dont’s, etc., etc., and knowing what to follow can be very overwhelming and exhausting. Luckily, I was introduced to Jennie and the RIE® method when my son was only 3 months and I can honestly say it’s the best thing that’s happened to me as a new mother. I feel very much in tune with my son, his development has been very organic and on his terms, and I see his confidence and independence truly blossoming. I wouldn’t have done it any other way.

Being a new mom, you want to do everything for your child, but RIE® taught me that sometimes, the best thing you can do is watch and listen. I learned so much from Jennie on how to observe my son and take his cues to understand his needs. RIE® made me a more confident mom and my son is definitely happier because of it!

My husband, daughter and I LOVED our class with Jennie! She is a nurturing teacher, with a calming presence to both the children and adults. I believe the parenting skills I learned in Jennie’s class when my daughter was a baby has helped me raise a confident, independent toddler, who actually listens!
