Maggie has a way in finding humor in the most challenging, frustrating of parenting situations. Her practical and easy to implement strategies make it easy for parents to incorporate small changes in their parenting which will yield huge results. She is also validating to parents of the wonderful things they are already doing…Her flexibility, positive attitude and perception of where the group was at made her adaptable to make any changes “on the fly”. She was “in the moment” all day and it was obvious that her presentation was meaningful. Anita Fagnan, Seeds to Sunshine Parent Conference, Westlock AB

Turning on the Light
Turning on the Light…is about discovering the special gifts, talents and abilities within each and every child we live and work with.

Realizing and using one’s full potential has never been more important than it is in today’s world.

The Windermere Valley Early Childhood Development Team was thrilled when Maggie Reigh agreed to come to our rural community to present her parenting workshop. Since the workshop, participants have seen each other throughout town and their chance meetings have turned into mini refresher courses. Maggie’s words of wisdom have become conversations on the playground, at the grocery store, and anywhere else that participants find themselves together. Thank-you, Maggie, for providing our community with this legacy. Nicole Pawlak, WV ECD Team Coordinator

I discovered the magic of Maggie Reigh and the ‘9 Ways to Bring out the Best in you and Your Child’ program while attending a Parent Link Conference a number of years ago I immediately purchased the program and supporting materials and, with Maggie’s help, started introducing the material to our families. This program caught on and soon participants were telling their friends about it, agencies heard about it and referrals to the program began flooding in. Toady we have 10 facilitators trained in the Grande Prairie area and many are presenting the program in a variety of forms with their clients and other associates. The 9 Ways program has been very successful in Grande Prairie. We continue to get very positive feedback from the presentations that we do 5-6 times per year and still we have a three page waiting list as I write this! We receive referrals from a variety of areas that indicate to us that the program will continue to be in high demand for some time to come. Tanice Jones, Parent Link Center, Grande Prairie, AB
