If you’re lucky...Read More »

Does your relationship need a reboot? If you’re like me, you may have found that keeping the “sexy” in your relationship with your spouse or partner can be quite a challenge. Men can be just as challenging as raising a 2-year-old. I think there’s a good reason why the writer of “The Jungle Book” refers to the human baby boy as a “Man Child.” I think it’s because men never seem to grow up.

When we were first referred to Mrs. Cathy Dick at One Degree Forward, my first question was, “Is she a doctor?” If the answer had been yes I think I would have refused. Instead the answer was like a breath of fresh air.

I feel fortunate enough to have participated in one of Cathy’s Teleclasses and purchased her ADD Parental Strategies program. I really needed my husband to understand more about ADD so we could help our son better. The program dove into who we are as people and showed us the importance of communication between us in order to communicate more effectively with our son. I’d recommend this program to everyone, whether they have ADD kids or not. It’s a real eye opener! Thanks.
