"Since doing Staylistening, we've noticed that my daughter is a lot happier and easier...she will accept ‘negotiations’ or alternatives if what she wants is not possible in the moment, whereas before, not getting exactly what she wanted prompted a full meltdown. We have done Staylistening at least 10 times since my consultation with Kristen. Last night my daughter only off-loaded emotions for 15 minutes before finishing. It seems the crying is decreasing in length. Everyone in the household is much happier!"  -- Cheryl Ruyle
