There are a ton of parenting programs out there, but most focus on target behaviors or particular methods. This parenting approach is different. We focus on the heart of your child! We take time to understand the personality, emotional needs, sensory needs, and issues of your unique child. That’s why we say we focus on the heart work, not just the hard work, of parenting.
In this program, we will discuss parent and child personalities, why they are a short-cut to relating in a deeper and more meaningful way, and how this connection can benefit your whole family. We break down each of the four personalities (Playful, Powerful, Proper, and Peaceful) and talk specifically about visual and verbal cues, strengths, struggles, and emotional needs of each.
You will learn the iHeart approach to handling your child’s needs and emotions. If you have a highly sensitive, highly emotional, or intense child, you will benefit from learning this six-step approach that helps you consistently and confidently approach even the most challenging behaviors, emotions, and issues.
In this program, you will also gain an understanding for the sensory and mental health needs your child may have that contribute to their intense emotions or challenging behavior. You will learn some specific tips to handling those meltdowns or severe tantrums like a pro. When you and your child know the process, you will begin to grow in trust and connection. Again, focusing on the heart allows us to work toward the connection you desire, despite the high sensitivity, intensity, and emotion.
