We are Dr. Erin Avirett and Dr. Jordana Mortimer
We're child psychologists with over 20 years of combined clinical experience. We have worked with thousands of families to guide them towards a happy and harmonious home.
We are also moms (Erin has 3 kids; Jordana has 2). We understand that you may not have the time or energy to "gentle parent" your child out of every hard moment.
That's why we have created easy-to-implement, straight-to-the-point parenting courses. In each of our courses, we give you tips and tricks you can start using immediately.
Plus, all of the information in our courses is based on decades of parenting research. This stuff works!
Each of our courses are based on decades of parenting research, our practical experiences working with thousands of struggling families, plus our knowledge gained from parenting our own kids over the past 13+ years.
There are two options for buying courses. You can purchase our flagship course, "Parenting 101" or our ultimate tantrum workshop, "How to Temper those Tantrums" individually. This gives you lifetime access to the course of your choice.

"I feel that after watching these videos (multiple times 😊), and implementing what is taught, that no matter what my kids encounter when they reach adulthood, they will be equipped to face any challenge - they will be mature, thoughtful, and intentional adults. I am so blessed by this program and what it has to offer."
"Mind and Child’s parenting courses have been exactly what we have been looking for. Short, engaging videos, written and taught by proven experts in the field, that describe a very comprehensive approach to parenting. Every piece of advice and strategy that Drs Avirett and Mortimer described was useful, easy to understand, and communicated very well. "
"These videos are a breath of fresh air to a struggling parent. They provide peace of mind and hope!"
"Mind and Child focuses on what all parents want - actual solutions that address the root of undesirable behaviors and have the big picture in mind, rather than quick fixes that are ineffective in the long run."
"Quick, practical lessons that gave me more tools to be a better father and teacher! I couldn't be happier with the new tools I have acquired and can't wait to see what else Mind and Child produces."
"These videos were short enough to keep my attention span, yet thorough enough to teach me some solid material. I like the back-and-forth format of Dr. Mortimer and Dr. Avirett as they dig into each lesson."
"Overall, I really enjoyed the course and felt encouraged and not overwhelmed after watching these videos. I know I will return to review some of these videos multiple times and likely pick up on new insights each time."
"I highly recommend Mind and Child for moms in any stage. I've read a lot of parenting books over the past twelve years and I found this course unique and extraordinarily useful!"
