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.
— I guess all us parents wonder if our kids will still value time with us when they become teenagers. I can't tell you how it blessed me to see my son calling me to the room with the candle each evening. Neither of us will ever forget the laughter, tears, and hugs that filled that room. Without any doubt, those evenings together has marked our relationship for the rest of our lives.

— For most parents, it is not a matter of sincerity but rather lack of information on how to communicate love effectively on an emotional level.
