A Sneak Peek at My 7 Year Old’s New Temper Tantrum Cure

I’ve been super short on time lately, but I want to drop in to share the amazing progress I have made with Katie and a new healing modality.

They’re also great gifts for friends and family who are happy to listen to the other ‘experts’ in favor of any advice you freely give.

I, of course, wouldn’t know anything about that. :cough cough:
