This program is absolutely Amazing. Worth every penny... I think it has made a greater impact than my daughter's therapist. I wish there was another kit to buy in addition to this. My 8 year old daughter listens to the stories every night before going to bed. It has helped her understand her anxieties and to know that she is not alone. I feel it has empowered her. There is nothing more effective than having the children in these stories share their experiences with anxiety, instead of an adult talking to her. The music, sound effects, children actors, writing, are brilliant. We want more...please come out with more cd's.M. Burnett Amazon Review
Hi! I am 10 years old and just finished listening to turnaround! It helped me a whole lot! It felt like I was with all the kids! I always felt all worried and scared but after i finished listening its almost gone.
I think I still have a ways to go but i am very very close! You guys have helped me a whole lot!! I am from Canada but I moved to Africa because my dad got a job offer!! I listen to the Chill CD every single night, and me and my family do stuff like puzzles and draw before bed to relax me! I have learned how to control my fear as soon as I get it and that helps a whole lot! thank you soooo much for helping me be free from my fears!Hi, I’m 10 South Africa
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thanks again for giving my daughter back her childhood! As a teacher for 14 years, I am usually very skeptical/critical of many programs. In this case though, I was utterly amazed! This program presents the material in a way that is engaging, easy to understand, and easy to apply. When I ordered your program, I really didn't expect to see the results that I saw. However, because of the anxiety issues my daughter had developed, I was willing to try anything. After listening to the program together, my daughter was able to identify what was happening to her, why it was happening, and how to stop it. Her anxiety had progressed to the point that she didn't even want to go to school. Her grades had dropped, and her social life was non-existent. Now, she is happy, smiling, and and able to attend birthday parties! I tell everyone I know, that has a child which exhibits anxiety symptoms, about this program. I would even suggest it for adults. I sure did learn a lot! I believe in this program 100%. If your child suffers from anxiety, please don't "put off" ordering this program. You WILL NOT be disappointed! We could not have done it without your program. We are so grateful! Thanks would never be enough!!!!Tonya Teacher, Ohio, USA
Where do we start? The success our child has had with your program is beyond words at this point. The first 3 weeks of school this year were of the greatest stress that my wife and I have ever experienced. The feeling of helplessness when trying to help your child with something you have no idea how to overcome was beyond stressful. We both work in the Film and Television business and thought our little worlds provided enough stress, but a child with anxiety proved that what we go through is nothing compared to what she was going through.Marten and Caroline Florida
After the first run through Turnaround, our daughter found herself beginning to see that tools were available for her to use to begin to overcome her fear and anxiety. After the 2nd and into the 3rd time through, and with every night listening before bed, she actually began to use the tools and amazing things started to happen. She is in 2nd grade, and considered at the top level of gifted students in her school. Because of her anxiety attacks on a daily basis in the car line, simply getting her to school each day almost eliminated her participation in the gifted program. The idea that she would have to exit the school after the first class and get on a bus to go to a different school for the gifted program was thought by the school and us as well, too much to put her through. I made 4x6 cards with quotes from the program as a "CHILL" package and she carried them with her in her bag. Her Teacher shared that as anxiety began to present itself, she would grab her cards and suddenly start to smile as Chill began to take over and she would stop an attack in its tracks.
She now gets out of the car line each and every morning with a smile on and says, "Good morning," to the guidance counselor, who has been simply fantastic in patiently dealing with her. Every Wednesday, she is the first one in line to catch the bus to the gifted program and cannot talk enough about how much she loves being in the program.
She is simply amazing, so many things in her life may have been eliminated or avoided had we not come across your program. We continued with another treatment for a while, once we spent the first $2,100 we simply lost confidence in the program and wanted to see how she did with Turnaround. She has excelled!
Thank you for all you have done as we are so blessed to have come across the Turnaround program.
Thank you, thank you, thank you guys for putting this program together and making it available. Our schools system had just cut out councilors due to budget cuts and, frankly, the psychologists available in this area are not very good. Most spent time trying to sugar coat school and/or threaten my child to try to make him go to school. One young councilor even said he was just spoiled and throwing tantrums and we just needed to put our foot down. We really didn't know where to turn. We knew nothing about anxiety disorders, nor how to deal with them.
Our son enjoyed the lessons and even more, the fact that someone was actually explaining in detail just what was going on inside of him that was making him feel this way. It really did give him the power to face the real problems and stare them down. It was in baby steps but at this point he actually looks forward to going to school most every day again. Not only did this get us through the anxiety attacks but it also gave him (and us) tools to use for a lifetime of challenges ahead.
I was amazed at how many people came up to me sharing stories of their anxious child (or their anxious childhood) after seeing me pushing my crying kid into school every morning. I'll never forget how hard that was as a father to have to hand him off to the principal or teacher when he wouldn't let go and there was no end in site until we found Turnaround. Initially the Turnaround program was, at least, a small dot of light at the end of the tunnel. In the next few weeks, that dot grew to being out of the tunnel completely. I can't thank you enough for providing such a critical tool for helping us through that desperate time.
I have recommended your program to others and will continue to do so. I would also like to see our school system work out some sort of deal with you for a license to use your software for other anxious children in the future. Please keep up the great work. You're efforts are filling a void and are truly appreciated!The Dix Family Canada

My daughters progress with her anxiety has been phenomenal, so we are not having to tackle these issues on a daily basis anymore! I AM THANKFUL! Ever since the day she realized she COULD suffer a little, and still come out on the otherside of panic without giving into a fix.... she hasn't had an attack, complains much more infrequently, and is just much more pleasant to be with!
I am thankful to the Doctors that created the TURNAROUND PROGRAM- THANK YOU! I see such a difference in my daughter's ability to cope and a more general happiness! For other Parents- I hope you check out the program even if you don't think your child is struggling, because they may be and you just don't know it. EVERYONE HAS FEARS AND EXPERIENCES ANXIETY ON SOME LEVEL... this program is very ENLIGHTENING!Molly Blogger Mom, www.thegiftofgirls.blogspot.com
Turnaround has been amazing! I had reached my breaking point from exhaustion at having to deal with my daughters extreme anxiety on a daily basis for 6 weeks when I found your programme. Her symptoms got even worse as we started the programme but we decided to persevere with it and from Day 5 there was a sudden decrease in her symptoms and our lives began to return to normal. The Parent CD was really helpful for me as it reassured me that it was okay and `normal` to feel scared when you had to watch your child struggling to breathe or being paralysed and I needed to hear that! The programme is the best money I have ever spent and I cannot recommend it highly enough to others with anxious children. Thank you so much.Stephanie Great Britain
First I would like to say thank-you for your amazing program and fantastic resource! Our two children had huge problems with anxiety and sabotaging behaviors. They have been able to individually, successfully identify their own triggers and anxious behavior and the fears and doubts that prevent them from enjoying school and life in general. They have gone from scared and anxious children to happy, confident, and empowered little people.
As a parent it is difficult to watch your child go through so much sadness and trauma, not knowing how to really support them through it. I realized that while I was learning about this material to support our daughters, I was uncovering my own hidden anxiety that I had suffered with all my life from a child. As a result I have found a new freedom that I have never known. Boy are we glad we purchased Turnaround!Mom from Queensland Australia
