Your Turnaround program had a life changing effect on our family, and we are grateful to you both. Our 11-year-old son had a panic attack in his bedroom one evening a few years ago, and soon after developed an aversion to his bedroom. We thought it would be a temporary arrangement, but 2 years later he was no closer to vacating his sister’s space and, in fact, his behavior we feared was becoming an entrenched pattern that would be impossible to overcome. No matter how inviting we made his bedroom, and despite counseling our son was not able to spend a night in his bedroom.
We began the Turnaround program this past summer. My son and I began a daily ritual of listening to your CD’s in the car. Sam loved the Chill character and we both loved Crank…way funny stuff and so easy to identify with the problems of the other kids in the CDs.. My son rebelled at the idea in the beginning, thinking it might be too “babyish” but the program really was very accessible to his age level and I think would extend to kids well into their teens as well. The “Take the Plunge” strategy was what in the end enabled my son to return to his bedroom. After completing the program just one time through, my son—with the help of the relaxation CD—moved back into his room for good. His sister was thrilled to have her own room back to herself, and my son’s confidence soared as he realized that he could conquer his fears and make changes to his life he didn’t believe possible. Thanks so much!!!!!!!!! McCarts
