What Parents Say About Their Experience Working with Me

"Tara knows how kids think and how their brains work. She has served as an invaluable translator for me, helping me truly and deeply understand what is developmentally appropriate for my kids, what is motivating their behaviours, and what is the best way to help them be their best selves."

Being exposed to the Language of Kindness in context of the true meaning of children's resilience is an eye opener for us. As I grapple with giving space for my kids in developing emotional intelligence while also standing firm with boundaries, this program provides tactical strategies with theories that help me unpack the why's behind my children's behaviour.
