What participants are saying:
“As a father I value any opportunity to learn more about my children as well as cherish learnings on how to support them at different stages as they navigate their lives. I searched for a while to find a program which would enhance an already close relationship with my kids and found that the program created by Val Swan called Let’s Grow together was perfect. Let’s Grow Together was personalized and provided a platform to engage in topics of mental and parenting enrichment. There is no playbook to parenting, but Let’s Grow Together provided a foundation of discussion and consideration that help bring our family even closer.” ~ Brian, age 46
“Let’s Grow Together was very valuable for many reasons. It allowed me to pause and think about my parents’ perspective in a busy world and engaged me to think about topics which helped me have a different understanding of the world we live in and supported real time navigation of events in my life. It also was amazing to learn more about my father and provided a platform for us to become even closer.” ~ Dylan, age 13
