Are you ready to create a better world for your children?
Then you're in the right place...
With Grounded Little Minds, I’ve created a platform for children to finally be able to learn how to boost their emotional intelligence and grow their social-emotional wellbeing.
Parents are welcome to join their children in this learning!
Over the last couple of years I’ve taught thousands of children how to develop their most important superpower - emotional literacy!
In this online course, I teach your children these essential qualities through a mixture of verbal, visual, kinaesthetic and intra-personal approaches to learning. Each of these teachings is grounded in evidence based mindfulness techniques that help children understand their thoughts and feelings.
Many parents often say to me, “I wish I'd had this growing up!”
So, I decided to make this a family adventure! Parents can choose to learn with their children.
The ideal age is 7-11, however, if parents are watching with their children, no age is too young! It's all about planting seeds. The mindfulness activity in each lesson can be done with ease from around age 6, with a parent or carer's assistance.
