"Make every moment an opportunity to create success. See what the child is doing in each moment. Recognize them: Say it out loud…in detail."

- Howard Glasser
Bruce Perry MD, The 6 Core Strengths

"The human brain is a remarkable and complex organ. It is the organ that allows us to form and maintain relationships, read, write, dance and sing. There is not a single aspect of human life that doesn’t involve the brain."

- Bruce Perry MD, The 6 Core Strengths
Daniel Siegel MD, Brainstorm & Parenting From the Inside Out & The Whole Brain Child

"Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we have to make them feel worse?"

- Jane Nelson EdD, Positive Parenting
Mac Bledsoe, Parenting with Dignity

"Whether you believe it or not, your children will make ALL the important decisions in their lives on their own. The only thing you as parents can do is teach them how to make good decisions."

- Mac Bledsoe, Parenting with Dignity
The Nurtured Heart Approach

"With the right structure, kids can play life with the same zeal and accomplishment as they do in the video games. The structure helps them to thrive and flourish. "

- The Nurtured Heart Approach
Becky Bailey PhD, Becoming Brain Smart & Preventing Power Struggles
