We all need to be nurtured - to receive understanding, respect, warmth, gentle touch, praise, security, limits and appropriate expectations; at Positive Nurturing we create a safe, fun and motivating atmosphere where people grow, thrive and learn these skills -not only for their children and families benefit - but "for their own special unique self".
