Amber taught me so much about myself and showed me my strengths and built my confidence. Amber’s encouragement made us all feel and believe that we could do anything we put our minds to. Amber went the extra mile to help each of us individually and genuinely cared about our future and wanted each and every one of us to be a success. I thank Amber for helping me discover my path in life and for having such a positive impact on my life and the life of many others I know. Amber is a caring, professional, energetic and genuine teacher. Amber is the definition of what an ideal "teacher" and "leader" should be; strong, intelligent, professional, helpful and determined. Thank you Amber for everything you have done for me, I greatly appreciate the role you had in helping me become the person and parent I am today.

“If you want to be a great parent that raises amazing children who turn into incredible adults, Amber’s book and coaching programs are a must. Parenting is easy when it’s easy, but when your child acts out or goes through a challenging time, then you need better strategies, like those you can learn from Parenting...With a Twist. I know, because Amber helped me with my 7 year old son when he was acting out and I didn't know how to help him. Amber got us through what could have been the beginning of a slippery slope."

"There are so many books about how to parent infants and toddlers. Everyone has advice for those just becoming parents but as our children get older and the challenges of parenting more complex, this advice and support dwindles. I have so many friends who come to me asking for advice on parenting school aged, pre-teen and teenagers. There hasn't been any website, blog, Facebook page or book that I felt confident to direct these parents to...until now! Laid out in an easy to read relatable style, Parenting...With A Twist addresses real life challenges we all face as parents.
