    Thanks again Yarrlydarb! We have a daughter moving to Ogden who we hope gets acquainted with you.
    In the meantime, keep up the good work! There may be no greater cause than keeping marriages and families together.

    Dear Linda and Richard,

    You're doing a great job! My wife and I thought so much of what your were doing clear back in 1989 and 90 that she conducted a Joy School in our home with the neighborhood kids of the same age. My son, who's name is Joseph, and whom we called Joey back then, was sure it was his own "Joey's school."

    Thanks for all you do to enlighten and motivate moms and dads, making them great parents!

    Thank you Yarrlydarb!
    Hats off to you who make a profession of helping marriages and parents!
    Our whole goal is to popularize parenting and to celebrate commitment and to give parents and marriage partners commendation for the effort they put forth and the good they do!
    (And along the way, to give some proven suggestions that we hope makes it all even more fun!

    More years ago than I like to count, I received my Ph.D in Marriage and Family Therapy. In more than three decades of private practice, specializing in helping parents become the best parents that can be, I can say without reservation that Linda and Richard Eyre are head and shoulders above all the world's "experts" that I have ever met during my professional life and practice.

    This is an article that, if all moms and dads would make an intregral part their parenting practice, would change not only families for the better, but society, the nation, and the world as a whole. They are correct principles that if adhered to would put me and all of us who practice the profession "out of business."

    Every good thing in this world, I firmly believe, starts in families, with loving, caring, kind, and EFFECTIVE parenting. It's something that deserves much more attention in our systems of educating our children; i.e., teaching them how to effectively live in the most basic "organization" that exists in the world: the family.
