Inspirational quotes

I provide these inspirational quotes for parents dealing with bullying because sometimes the going gets tough and just the right words can make a difference.

As a Coach I will often times refer to an exceptional quote that indicates the author has been there and done that and we are not alone.

Please find an alhabetical listing of quotes I use while coaching and have been known to lean on myself. I hope they inspire and help you and your child.


Please visit this page often as I plan to update and add quotes as the website grows.
