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.
— Me and my father have a background of tension around each other. These meetings that we have had for the past 30 days have allowed us to be totally open with each other and not worry about the responses coming from the other. A little weary to start, we ended with confidence and our relationship with each other has grown and we have become much closer. It is easier to open up to him now and I am happy that we did this. To anybody who wants to improve their relationship with their dad, I recommend it. It helps a lot.
