I just wanted to thank you both for offering your TeleSeminar on Raising Respectful Teens. I really enjoyed it! I found it to be informative and useful. Raising teens is definitely a hard job that requires an open mind and a sense of humor!
Your seminars help me to better understand my teens and where they are coming from. They also let me know that I am not alone on my journey as I try to raise my teens and face struggles and obstacles. It's during these hurdles that I tend to forget to give respect to my teens as a way of mirroring what I expect from them.
It's a hard job raising teens and I thank you both for all of your knowledge, insight, books and tele-seminars. They give me the added boost that I need to keep working on my relationship with my teens, to keep my communication open and to always look at ways of improving it.
Steve, I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed listening to the parent TeleSeminar on respect and teenagers last week (actually, I missed the call but I listened to the recording). You and your wife make a great team and it was nice to hear the stories and practical application. Also, I have read quite a few books on similar subjects, but it is really nice to hear it reinforced by people talking! I'll stay tuned in to your seminars and such.
—Best Regards, Lynn Worley
Steve and Patt Saso are exceptional speakers. Patt is the more "practical" speaker, highly intelligent, warm presenter. Steve is a wonderful, down to earth speaker with great humor and wonderful storytelling technique. They are often presenters at our annual Congress. We will have the evaluation results for the Saso's Congress 2009 presentations available next week. The Saso's presented at Congress in 2007 and here is how they did: Parenting Your Teen with TLC received a 3.6 out of 4.0, Raising an Emotionally Healthy Child received a 3.5 out of 4.0

Thank you, Patt and Steve, for sharing your knowledge of teenagers. I heard you speak recently at Lynbrook High School and at Miller Middle School, and I have your book 10 Best Gifts. Your information is helpful and it is comforting to know that my kid is not the only difficult one.
My son picked up your book recently and he couldn't put it down. I showed him the chapter on responsibility and explained that I would follow the advise in your book and not nag him in the morning.This morning I didn't yell at him to hurry and he actually got to school on time. So thank you very much. You've had a positive impact in our house.
As usual I totally enjoyed Steve's presentation. He has such a knack for laughing at all the parenting mistakes he perceives that he has made!! It was nice to see such a good turnout of parents.

I wanted to thank you for delivering a great seminar to our Miller community this evening. As expected, you were informative, relevant and entertaining. I observed several people taking lots of notes and paying close attention to your presentation. I am confident that many of the audience members have taken away ideas that they can immediately implement in their relationships with their teens. I know that I will! As we discussed, I actively engage the "3 questions only" practice with my two teenage sons (they give me "3" when I wish to ask them about school, the dance, etc.). It works! Again, thanks for a wonderful evening.
