Parenting is the most important job in the world and yet there are no mandated courses on how to do it!

Through our workshops, you will learn how you can best help your young child develop emotional competence on the way toward self-regulation, which research shows is critical to lifelong success, well-being and the growth of emotional intelligence.      

“Dr. Housman’s approach focuses on emotional intelligence. Teaching the children about their own feelings, how to deal with those feelings and how to communicate what those feelings mean helps to foster their self-confidence and social awareness. The benefit of my son learning about this is that is has changed the way he communicates at home. We no longer see childlike tantrums; we now hear from a boy who can articulate with his words.”

— Amy G, Parent
