The 30 Days Experience
Can 10 minutes a day for 30 days really make a difference? When it comes to building relationships between students and their parents, sometimes 30 days may be the best way to start.
Developed by Richard Ross and Gus Reyes, this remarkable resource is designed to re-open the lines of communication and help families rebuild and even deepen their relationships.
Starting with just ten minutes each evening, parents and teens find a quiet place and, by candlelight, open and alternately read five cards, each designed to build heart connections. One mother called it "an incredible experience; eye-opening, tear-jerking, and heart-warming all at the same time."
To create 30 Days, Richard and Gus drew on both their extensive professional experience and on their personal desires to better relate with their own teenage children.
— My 20 year old daughter and I are five days into our 30 Days. Lately things have been tense between us because she is becoming her own woman and getting ready to move out on her own. After only five days we have re-ignited the deep emotional connection we have and our daily conversations about the regular things in life are relaxed and productive.

— Crowded lives produce fatigue, fatigue produces irritability, and irritability produces indifference. Indifference can be interpreted by the child as a lack of genuine affection and personal esteem.
