What Families are Saying
Thanks to the guidance and support of Yasmin and the workshop she lead, my husband and I feel like we are back on track with our toddler. We couldn’t have done it without her!
Last night was so great...I did make sure to have that special connection time with both little kids - and it made my extraction to go to work SO much easier.
I really feel like you reframed so much of the struggle for me!
My partner and I both feel completely empowered and inspired.
Yasmin empowered us as parents and made us feel like we could guide our toddler through this phase without ripping our own hair out.
Toddlers suck. Yasmin makes it less sucky.
