- Cheri Jennett, MD -  "Dear Hilde, I attended the RCB seminar to help better parent my 2 and 5 year old daughter and my 17 year old step son. Even being a Pediatrician, I knew I had a lot to learn about parenting, especially with my 5 year old strong-willed daughter. The class revealed to my husband and I how our particular parenting styles might be altered to achieve more cooperation from our children and create more responsible future adults. Our lives became so much more pleasant with significantly less friction. The ideas from the RCB course really do work and make sense. I now feel that I have even better advise to give the families in my practice regarding various behavior problems and recommend the class to many of my families in my practice. Keep up the good work Hilde!"

- Jeff of the JEFF & JER Showgram, Star 100.7- "The RCB Seminar is like having someone handing you nuggets of gold. There are things in this class that have already changed our kids AND our family. Not 'someday' stuff, but things that made a difference after the first week."

- Tarah Pearlman & Larry Sadiropoulus, Attorney - "I will be forever indebted to Hilde Gross for giving me the tools, knowledge and guidance to completely transform my family. The basic premise behind her in-home coaching and seminars are a kinder, more gentle way of relating to your children. This has allowed me to be the type of mother that I had always envisioned I would be: patient, loving, understanding, yet able to establish and maintain clear boundaries. Working together with my children to set agreements that include clear expectations as well as predetermined consequences has virtually eliminated the need for power struggles, whining, arguing, and tantrums. Empowering our children to practice self calming techniques, employ a family team atmosphere, and conflict resolution techniques have instilled invaluable confidence in our children.
Not only has Hilde's program (in-home coaching) positively affected our relationship with our children, but it has also strengthened my bond with my husband. We have both learned to listen to each other—really listen!!! We have learned to validate each other’s feelings in a way that makes us both feel “heard and understood.” Once this has been accomplished, there is little need to continue belaboring our individual points and we can begin to work toward a solution.

I can not stop telling my friends and family about this course! I truly feel proud of the mother that I have become, and I am amazed by the patience, sensitivity and dedication that my husband displays toward our children."

- Sarah Knapp (16 years old, 2009)
Secrets to successful parenting is a very inaccurate business title, because throughout the work of Hilde Gross, secrets to successful loving is probably the closest to the truth! By opening passages of communication we did not know were there, she strengthened not only our relationship with each other,  but our relationship with ourselves and
pushed my family in the right direction towards pure communication of thoughts, feelings, and intention of actions. Hilde has a wonderful program that guides us all in way of emotional intelligence inside a family.

- Adrienne Prager, Attorney -  "Thank you, Hilde, for helping me reduce stress and get negative thinking out of my way. Not only have our phone coaching sessions reinforced what I had previously learned in Redirecting Children’s’ Behavior, but I have also experienced my own personal growth and awakening through what Hilde calls Human Software Engineering.  Through the use of her techniques, you really can reprogram your mind, soul and body for a more successful and fulfilling life, all over the phone.  And as these old behaviors and belief systems change, so does your relationship with your family, friends, kids and even yourself, for the better."

Hilde, I wanted to thank you for all the assistance you have given me lately. Before we met I was really living in fear. After just a few sessions and really after one session, the sun is shining again! The system you use is effective and quick; no more sitting around a therapist's office complaining session after session without positive results.

     We were very fortunate at University City High School to have Hilde Gross teach an 8- week course to our parents which she titled “Secrets to Successful Parenting: A Survival Course for Parents with Teens.”  As a counselor at the high school I have received such a great amount of positive feedback about Hilde’s workshop that I hope to offer the class again next year so more parents can benefit.  The workshop was held in the evenings once per week and was very well received by our community.  As the good news spread, more parents attended the workshop and have asked for follow up classes this coming school year.  After the workshop parents made comments to me that “Hilde’s class completely changed the way they approached parenting” and that “they could not before imagine having such a calm and peaceful environment in their home.” 

     “Secrets to Successful Parenting” is derived from the philosophies taught in the program Redirecting Children’s Behavior (RCB) and offers insightful strategies to help parents help their children to be self-motivated, responsible, cooperative young people.  Hilde teaches the program with the confidence and enthusiasm of someone who not only loves her job but who fully believes in the philosophy she is teaching.  It is clear she has seen RCB work time and time again, and she has numerous examples to share of how it has been successful in the past.  Watching Hilde teach is inspiring.  She is entertaining and funny, serious at times, and full of thoughtful answers to the complicated questions the parents bring to the table.  Our parents would leave each night feeling they had learned new techniques to take home, while having enjoyed themselves throughout the class. 

     It is with great confidence that I would recommend Hilde to teach the RCB curriculum to any age group.  While I was fortunate to witness her expertise as a teacher and professional speaker in her class for parents with teens at UC High, I was also a student in one of her classes when I worked as a middle school teacher just a few years ago.  At that time I took her class that was designed for teachers and have used the RCB philosophy in my daily practice ever since.  I believe any adult working closely with children whether in the classroom or in the home can benefit greatly from the teachings of RCB, and there is no better teacher than Hilde Gross to bring those teachings life!

Sempra Energy & Sempra Energy Utilities have had the fortunate opportunity to host Ms. Hilde Gross and her well-respected and intuitive approach in delivering "Redirecting Children's Behavior" to its employees. Hilde's delivery of teaching skills that create self-confident, responsible, cooperative, respectful and drug-free children has been well received and requested again and again. She has the ability to impact not only parents, but also employees without children in establishing efficient and useful communication styles that empower and achieve a "win-win" result for conflict resolution.

The Redirecting Children's Behavior Program has many benefits in the workplace and can ultimately lead to higher employee satisfaction and a more productive work environment. This is achieved through enhanced communication, teamwork and problem solving techniques that can strengthen a corporation as a whole.

Hilde's 10-week course was welcomed and received with open arms and had a following of eager-to-learn employees and parents alike. She has a wonderful way with people and explores teaching as an art form. Employees have expressed their gratitudes to the company for bringing practical, real-life, and meaningful seminars like Hilde's to the worksite. Her teachings are not just for temporary application, if internalized and applied correctly - these effective methods and techniques are everlasting.

I hope you will consider enriching your employees and your organization with the proven and effective benefits that Hilde's "Redirecting Children's Behavior" seminars and sessions offer.                                         - Nicole Galicia, Wellness Programs Analyst, SDG&E -

- Bob Hamm, Principal, SACRED HEART ACADEMY - "You can be assured you will walk away from Hilde's presentation with many effective, practical skills to use with your child or, for teachers, with your students. I liked her presentation so much that it has caused me to schedule her to train all of our teachers."

- Kristi Harrison, Mother - "I can honestly say that taking RCB affects my everyday life as a mom and person. With using the new RCB Parenting tools, I see my children becoming more cooperative, respectful, and loving. Understanding now that children communicate something when they misbehave I respond differently. I realize now there are ways I can help prevent misbehavior and have the tools to respond to it peacefully when inevitable misbehavior does occur. I really encourage you to try RCB. I can't imagine parenting without it. RCB is a great foundation, a paradigm for parenting. It has replaced the authoritarian style we grew up with and I feel better going to bed each night as I have treated my family with peace."

- Anne Hanneken, MD, THE SCRIPPS RESEARCH INSTITUTE - "Many thanks Hilde for a wonderful course on Redirecting Children's Behavior. My husband and I thought it was a great experience, one that every parents should have more than once. As you know I took the course previously and thought it was important enough to repeat the course in order to reinforce these important principals and approaches to raising happy and healthy children. You did a terrific job as an instructor. I will recommend your course to my collegues. Thanks again for all your advice."

- Michell Tirpak, Mother - "Dear Hilde, I took my first RCB workshop because my mom asked me to go with her and it was free. I didn't know what it was about, and as far as I knew, everything was okay with my kids - in fact, they're great! No problems to speak of. I went back for the 5-week course because I found I can be a much better parent just by spending a few hours learning why they do the things they do, and how to respond to them in a teaching, nurturing way. And the response from the kids is immediate! I definitely feel I am being a better parent to my kids after taking your wonderful RCB seminar. I recommend RCB to every parent!"

- Teresa Bruney, MD - "As an expert in child health, I felt sure that my knowledge of child development, temperament and parenting were top-notch. As a recent graduate of RCB, I am happy to report my attitude toward my child, spouse and patients has changes dramatically. RCB has given me the tools to guide my child with love without abandoning leadership. I recommend this course without reservation for parents, regardless of the age of their children."

- Tamara, Teacher & Jim Elgie, Space Engineer - "Thank you Hilde for doing a terrific job in guiding us towards a better family life. We truly feel inspired. We highly recommend RCB to anyone who has an open mind, an open heart, and a desire to improve their family communication and teach their children the skills they need to grow into responsible, caring, and self-respecting adults."

- Denise Freedman - "This class is a must for those who are striving to be effective managers and enlightened parents."

RCB for Kids Course

- Laura Perkins - "Hilde, Thank you so much for your wonderful leadership in the RCB for Kids Course. You did such an amazing job with our children. We appreciate your expertise in the program. The lessons were great. The children were able to tell me about all the wonderful hands-on activities, the specific lessons and have begun to put much of the program into action at home. It was great to have the handouts and the role plays that the children shared at the end of the class to reinforce their learning. And, somehow, you did it all with a smile and a lot of patience! Thanks again!"

- Mark Pearson, School of Business Leadership CASTLE PARK HIGH SCHOOL- "Hi Hilde: Thank you very much for taking good care of Brennan in the RCB for Kids Camp. I was impressed with how willing Brennan and the other kids were to present to the parents at the end of each camp day. The concepts and insights that Brennan received were tremendous. You were teaching him and the others such important social skills concepts. I want to continue my training in RCB and keep Brennan exposed to it also. Thanks so much."
