Marianne Deeks gets it! The daily work she does with real kids in the real world gives her material a depth of authenticity that rings true at every level. She approaches the topic with a practical common sense that makes it useable immediately, but has taken the time to research and document her sources in a way that gives listeners and readers a confidence that what she is presenting is credible and trustworthy. There's not a single squeamish bone in Marianne's body - she takes on subjects that many would find awkward with a matter-of-fact attitude that could only come from talking to kids about this stuff for years. I recommend Marianne without reservation as a woman of wisdom, integrity and insight and as a presenter who is well prepared, engaging and thorough.
