From Kirk Martin's own words
I just want to thank you and all of your readers for amazing insight into their kids. It's impossible to choose one winner as all the entries were just phenomenal.
Any parent who has as much compassion and wisdom as your Moms is sure to have already received their reward: a great relationship with their kids.
My first choice was the following because the Mom hit the nail on the head: no matter what strategies we use, calm always begins with us first. That's the key. Every word of Kim's post is spot on.
Again, thank you to everyone. Some parents touched on the importance of diet, which is very important. Others mentioned sensory needs. We try to deal with all of these issues in our newsletters so I'm glad the Moms are in tune with us. More than anything, I hope all the parents feel even more empowered from sharing these insights with each other.
Thank you, everyone!
From Jenn: Thank you to all who participated in this contest. And of course, thank you Kirk for speaking to us on Can Mom Be Calm and for donating your CD set to the winner. Because we get to read each other's best advice, I feel like we all win, even those who didn't participate. Congratulations Kim. You are the calmest mom in town!
