Is Connected Parenting for you?

All children and teens can be challenging at times, but some are different. They don't seem to respond as well to the sensible consequences and strategies that work with other kids. At Connected Parenting, you'll learn to use the tools that therapists use to help your child to develop the emotional and neurological hardware they need to deal with whatever life throws at them.

"Connected Parenting advises us not just how to parent, but—far more important—who to be as parents. The therapeutic methods suggested by Jennifer Kolari are based not on simple-minded behavioural solutions, but on building warm, nurturing relationships with our children, with insight and compassion not only for their little flaws, but also for our own larger ones."
—Gabor Maté, M.D.

"A must read for parents, educators, and any other adults who want to connect in a deeply caring and positive way with the children in their lives."
