Memorable Moments:

“Everything that seemed ‘traditional’ didn’t work for us and didn’t do anything for us, so it just became the time that we said, ‘Let’s try something more non-traditional.'” 

“The cost of your program – which seemed like a lot upfront – was less than every other thing combined that didn’t work.” 

“It doesn’t really matter the cost. I’m trying to help my son be a better version of himself.” 

“If we medicate this child, we might gain something, but what are we going to lose?…It works sometimes, but other times it causes more problems than it solves.” 

“I looked at this girl every day and saw the struggle she was having. To me, there was no price on trying to figure that out. It was just that simple.” 

“I didn’t want her to feel different because of something we were trying to do to help her.” 

“One of the things people are going to be worried about going in to this is that their kids are going to feel deprived. I can tell you 99% of the time, our daughter does not feel deprived.” 

“We had a lot of stuff to pull out of her diet, but it’s worked. We’ve managed it. After a while, it didn’t seem scary. It was just the everyday routine.” 

“Like any other thing you are doing as you’re raising a child, if you’re doing it as a team, it’s probably going to turn out better.” 

“Don’t say to your husband, ‘Do this for me.’ Do it for the child. And if there’s anything you wouldn’t do for the well-being of your child, then shame on you. You definitely got in the wrong business of being a parent.”
