Parents Are The Prize

Did you know that you are the best reward you can give your child?  Your attention and energy truly are the prize your children desire. Every child’s heart longs for intense, positive connection with parents.  As a parent struggling with an intense child, deciding what type of help to seek can be very overwhelming and confusing. Remember this: when a child acts out, is defiant, or appears to shut you out, they are actually crying out for a connection with you. When you use the Nurtured Heart Approach, you hold the key to transforming your child’s behavior from the inside out by giving your children what they need the most – loving interaction with you.

Fort Collins Therapist Empowers Parents to use NHA to Transform Difficult Children

The success of the Approach in helping these children embody their "Greatness," has spurned a movement for "All Children Flourishing." The Approach has been implemented world-wide in schools, foster care systems, community health initiatives, and families with astounding results. &q
