Build Tools and Skills for Big Feelings in Fun & Effective Ways

 Emotional regulation is one of those things that may not feel super fun, but is essential. My goal in writing this book was to show children why learning tools is important BUT also how it can be super fun!!

Relying on my background in social emotional intelligence, experience as an educator/former preschool owner, and insights I gained as a parent I wanted to create something that made building skills easy, effective and fun.

If your family has the opportunity to work with Tara, please take it!! Tara’s experience and approach, her kindness philosophies and her openness have been truly life-changing for us as we raise a toddler and a preschooler.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Tara. Her genuinely caring nature and ability to assess the needs of a child as an individual is remarkable and I’m forever grateful for the impact she has had on our family.

Tara's gentle, systematic and non-judgmental approach to answering my many questions provided much needed support, especially as we welcomed our second child and helped our son transition to school age.

A little about my signature framework

I'm Tara, the Founder of Raising Resilient Children. A long time educator, former preschool owner and parent, I know that social emotional well-being and empathy are core components of developing resiliency for  long-term success with children.

The Language of Kindness is the system I created for fostering kindness, developing problem solving skills and navigating challenges with clear concise language. It is an approach for Raising Resilient Children that focusses on developing three important areas: kindness to self, kindness to others & kindness to the planet.

Parent Clues for Problem Solving will give you the tools you need to understand your child's behaviour and build skills.
