...it was the first time I had co-facilitated and I found it to be very helpful to have another person to share the load, as I had preciously been on my own in offering courses.  The other facilitator and I both agreed that it had been a helpful experience, particularly as I had not been involved with B.Y.B. before, so I was learning ‘on the job!!’

My first course had just one participant. I was disappointed until I started teaching and then felt very grateful as I could give that person more time and not have to focus on anyone else. I developed my confidence in the course and speaking to an audience.

I have maintained that if one person in each workshop takes something away that they can use to be a better version of themselves and more respectful in their interactions with their children and partner, it was a successful session.

Approach your first course with an attitude of fun and curiosity. It is OK if you are still learning along the way. There is no point at which we stop learning or know it all! So jump on in and have a go. The course content is so fabulous that you can’t go wrong.
