"We have invited Sylvia into our programs to discuss behaviour strategies, and have been extremely impressed. She is articulate, knowledgeable, and both the young children and parents instantly feel comfortable with her. Sylvia is the perfect mix between professional (punctual, prepared) and relatable (provides real-life examples). We are thrilled that she is in Ottawa and available to work with families who are wanting to improve the harmony in their homes. We are confident when we refer her, and can not wait to invite her into more programs and events we have."
Owner & Director, Mommy Connections Ottawa
“I invited Sylvia to come speak at Kids & Company because I knew she could help our parents who were dealing with potty training and toddler discipline challenges just to name a few. Sylvia has the ability to pull from her personal and professional experiences to offer helpful, supportive advice with a non-judgemental approach regardless of the issue. Also, she has the ability to make everyone in the room feel at ease and always looks at the positive side of the situation. We look forward to working with Sylvia again in the near future."
