Why learn the Nurtured Heart Approach?

Many children possess an extra intensity of spirit that can manifest itself as defiance, behaviour escalations, and anxiety. Parents and educators are doing everything in their power to help these children be successful at home and in school. Yet, these children are often struggling to make connections and fit into their world.

The Nurtured Heart Approach® will provide you with a new and different set of tools to support your parenting and classroom management.  It is designed to change the way these children see and understand themselves and empower them to use their intensity in positive ways. 

Watch this video to hear about the powerful transformations that make us so passionate about bringing this approach to you.
