  1. Hello, I saw your sister Kate’s comments about you and your success with children on FB. My husband, Dan Taylor and myself, Carrie Taylor are friends of Kate’s and also fellow artists.

    I am a a Mental Health Technician and am currently preparing to volunteer with a teacher at Longfellow. Jennifer Smith/Dayton Public Schools is a client of mine and has expressed a need in the schools to work with kids that have behavioral health issues.

    I anticipate volunteering with Longfellow in the near future, but would like to talk with you once I am established. Would love to bring you in for faculty, but haven’t begun there yet and would rather check out the climate first. My home phone is 937-687-4875 and cell is 937-974-2871.

    I am very interested in working with the schools to create a program for children that have image disorders and have been bullied. I did my final practicum with Youth Partial Hospitalization in Belmont and also worked the Psychiatric Unit with Grandview Hospital.

    Later this year, probably sometime in November, we are likely having a dance for Special Needs children. This would be the second event held at Hara Arena. We have 150 dresses donated, and donations of food, decorations etc are already in place from last years dance. I own a hair salon at The Greene and all hair and makeup are donated as well. Would love your input with that. Jennifer Smith Dayton Public sent out mailers to the families in August, but the dance was the night before school started so our turnout should be better this year with having the event later in the year.

    Take care. I think you’re doing terrific work. These children are so deserving and so under served.

    • Carrie,
      That dance event sounds awesome. I’d like to know more about it!

      I will call you in the next 48 hours. Sorry it’s taken me a while to repond to you! The new baby takes a bit of my time. They really can’t do ANYTHING for themselves :).

  2. Scott, One of my staff members and i attended your workshop last night in Piqua. Twenty two minutes into our school day this morning, my staff member excitedly exclaimed to me, “It works! It really works!” She was referring to your empathy technique and to your controlled choice technique. Clearly, she was already having success with the tips you gave us.

    My 4 year old daughter attempted to argue with me this morning on the way to preschool. I told her that i loved her to much to argue. She “locked up” as you would say. When she repeated her argument, i repeated the phrase. She was silent for a second and then said, “Stop saying that!” Five seconds later she asked what i packed her for lunch. It was the best ride to school ever! :) Thank you so much for introducing me to Love and Logic!

  3. Scott,
    My husband and I missed your presentation in Piqua in March. When and where are you having another presentation, I would love to hear what you have to say.
