Kira is a wonderful teacher - I learned so much from her in the parent infant classes. She is very knowledgeable and her perspective is always enlightening and fair to the parent and the child. The RIE approach has helped me so much to better understand what my child needs and how to respond and having experts like Kira guide me further has allowed me to practice at a deeper level. Thank you Kira and for all the wonderful work you do!
Thank you for being here with me as exciting and nervous new parents. I feel a deep relaxation after our Sunday discussion, I think it is because of the clarity and confidence I have received. I am deeply grateful to have such wise resources and knowing I am supported. Over these discussions, I think parenting the child really starts with how to be a proper person myself. Or more I learned how to respect my child, I learned how to respect myself.
Kira is an amazing teacher and educator. She is very professional and compassionate. Her level of understanding children and relating to children is the highest I’ve seen. Kira has valuable advice in all aspects of parenting and kids’ behaviors. Kira is an invaluable resource and an amazing person.
I have come to Kira many times for guidance on how to approach challenging situations with my toddler. Kira always offers loving and patient advice. It is clear to me that she is thoughtful about the specifics of my child and doesn't just give blanket advice. Whenever we reset and use Kira's interventions we see results. Thank you Kira for helping me to be the best parent I can be!
Our family had a wonderful experience with Teacher Kira! We started attending her class when our daughter was 5 months old and once she graduated, at 2 years old, we asked Teacher Kira to keep meeting outdoors because we were extremely happy and did not want to end our class! Kira is a wonderful person and an amazing teacher, who listens, understands, and relates to parents' challenges without shaming or saying what you are supposed to do.
