what others are saying...

"Our school experienced a tragic loss of one of our students and a younger sibling, on Christmas Day ... This was an unspeakable trauma that no one ever anticipates having to go through. I am grateful to FamilySparks for their expertise, their compassion and their delicate handling of a complex situation."

Stuart Hall, Head of School, Christ Church Cathedral School

Dr. Roberts' way of introducing important but sometimes challenging topics in her books has really helped to frame constructive and productive conversations in our house. She strikes a wonderful balance between providing information and inviting curiosity and inquiry.

My own children have benefited from [Dr. Roberts'] gentle words and as well as students in the elementary school where I teach. I am so grateful to have this first step to give to the children in my life! Thank you FamilySparks!

Dr. Jillian Roberts books helped us during a difficult time by providing the perspective and framing that my daughters needed in order to understand our changing family constellation. Reading her books helped create opportunities to talk about these changes in a supportive, positive way.

I really enjoyed sharing the Facts of Life app with my kids. I discovered it just when my youngest was becoming curious about the subject. I appreciated its gentle, age-appropriate approach, while my kids loved the colourful, interactive presentation. It was a wonderful way to start an important, and ongoing, conversation.
