"WHEN I WAS REQUIRED TO TAKE ANGER MANAGEMENT CLASSES, I FELT INSULTED BELITTLED AND HUMILIATED.
I told myself, I don’t need anger management classes. After completing the class, I realized something I had anger management issues.
At any time in your life when you get angry and you don’t know how to manage that anger you can cause yourself and others a great deal of emotional stress and regret. The anger management class taught me how too mentally prepare for unforeseen occurrences with human interaction. The course is designed to dig deep into your trigger points and help you adjust your thought process when your anger overtakes your sense of reasoning to help you gain your composure and self-control. I would recommend anger management classes to any and everyone. Even if you don’t think you have anger issues, I challenge you to take the class."
"The class offered an open space for participation and reflection on the subjects reviewed. The instructor provided material that was updated and related to today’s triggers and stressors. Ms. Thomas had a very organized agenda for the class and encouraged all attendees to participate and actively analyze one's involvement in conflict as well as to how to work on improving such interactions to effectively and respectfully communicate with others. There is so much more I would love to say but I think this captions the main advantages of her course. Thank you so much for all your help and dedication Ms. Thomas."
This course was offered through my child’s school, and I was wondering what it would be like. I decided to go ahead and take advantage and was surprised to see how much I was able to learn through this anger management course. The instructor is amazing, she teaches so well and listens carefully to what we share, she is attentive and caring to each person who takes on the course. I had one situation where I felt the need to speak one-on-one with her and decided to wait because, let me tell you, she doesn’t end the class until each person has left to give each person a chance in case you need to speak one-on-one with her. I waited and felt so grateful to speak to her about the issue that I was having. She gave me amazing advice and made me feel like so much weight was lifted off of my back. I felt extremely lucky to have taken this course because what I learned will forever stay with me as long as God grants me to live and give me the necessary tools to stay calm even in situations when I feel like I am getting upset to be able to calm down and go about the situation in a way that is healthier to me and the people I love and care about. I learned how to identify my triggers and how to work through tough situations. To someone who might be thinking to themselves, hey this is silly, I don't need this class you will be surprised with how much you could relate. I also learned that with encouraging myself to smile even on my hardest days that could make me feel so much better! You could choose to live a happy and healthier life by choosing to educate yourself. I've also learned that I could even change old unhealthy habits. You can unlearn things that make you unhappy by working on things that make you more relaxed and happier. I could go on-and-on, but just take a chance and see how beneficial this course is. Her parenting classes, OMG also amazing and she encourages each person to participate and has so much knowledge to share that you will feel like WOW, why didn't I look for these classes before? Point is, each class has so much for us to learn that you will be surprised and feel so accomplished to have taken the classes she has to offer. ❤️

Q. How do you parent?
A. Most of us learn to parent based on what we saw growing up, combined with watching our peers, reading books and our basic common sense and instinct.
Q. If I am a grandparent or other family member are these classes available to me?
A. Yes, because there are many important people in children's lives and you never know what impact you might have on a child.
Q. As an educator I would like to know can some of the strategies that you offer on children's early experiences in the home be implemented in the classroom?
A. Yes! Continuity from home to school is so important for a child's stability, and home/school communication will be greatly increased if you have some common understanding regarding the child.
Q. How will your company provide support in opening new facilities that are compliant with State and Local mandates and guidelines?
A. Consultants for Freeman-Thomas Early Education Consulting attend regular training and updates for compliance issues through various venus such as ACSA, community care licensing and other state and federal departments. As CEO, Regina Thomas has over 10 years experience in coordinating and supporting administrators in the successful opening of numerous preschool facilities.
