What People Are Saying:
This parenting course is a must! The videos are short, making them easy to fit into a busy schedule. The videos are clear, concise, and include practical strategies that apply to all ages.
As a mother of 4 and 9 year old daughters and an 8th grade teacher of 9 years, I've been able to practice these strategies in a wide variety of real life settings and situations. And they really work!
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. We need simple, practical ways to shape our children into problem-solvers who can effectively communicate their needs and navigate their emotions. This course does exactly that and will help our kids evolve into thriving, independent adults.
I found that these videos gave me the knowledge to translate the actions and reactions of my children into healthy responses which will, in turn, improve their emotional health and the health of our family unit. I am better able to anticipate my children's needs of me - a good listener, one to provide firm boundaries, a calm leader as they try to understand all the emotions running through them. These videos provide so many tools that can be applied immediately to start building a strong foundation for our children. These videos can provide relief to parents who are struggling to try to translate the actions and words of their children. These skills that we learn in the videos will help develop healthy relationships with our children that will lead to each child having healthy relationships with their siblings, friends, and as they grow into adults.
These videos are a breath of fresh air to a struggling parent. They provide peace of mind and hope!
We are so grateful for Mind & Child! My husband and I both found this video course to be full of practical advice and relatable examples, coming from two approachable, professional women we respect and trust. I especially love that the videos are short and easy to refer back to in a pinch. We’ve already tried out several of the action steps and seen noticeable progress in our family dynamic! Thank you!
As a parent of four young boys, getting advice and guidance on how to parent them successfully has become a bit of a hobby. My wife and I have worked through parenting books together in the past and have gotten some great things out of them. Lately, however, we’ve both found ourselves drawn to video and some of the social media parenting voices just because it is so much easier to get quick tips here and there without the time investment of working through the books.
While some of those tips have been nice, we needed more. With 4 little bodies (and 4 big personalities) all bumping into each other, we were both needing something deeper to help us navigate the daily realities and ensure our family’s ship is pointed to a healthy place.
Mind and Child’s Parenting 101 course was 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.
I loved their ARC approach and how they described it. Many times as they talked about common struggles (i.e. the “parenting pendulum”) I found myself going “Yup!” and nodding along, yet I always walked away from each topic feeling like “oh, ok, we can do this.” Each video is very practical, makes obvious sense, and is given in a way that is empowering, not judging.
One example is the “Consistency is Key” video. Like just about every parent, I already knew that was true. You have to do what you say. However, real-life is real, and I had to admit that I wasn’t perfect in executing that concept daily. I’d overreact to a situation (i.e. “fine, no electronics for 2 weeks!”) and then struggle to follow through consistently. In a 6 minute video, they were able to give me a ton of great tips to help avoid those situations, and I’ve already found myself applying them when working with my kids. I found every video to be the same way, a good strategy or idea communicated well, and then a bunch of practical tips on how to make that happen in the real world. The strategies are great, but those tips are gold!
The other thing that I was so impressed with is how much true depth there was to the course as a whole. My wife and I have both been turned off by what feels like parenting “fads” we see described in some books and especially on social media. We’ll get sucked in like everyone but, after looking into them, they really only cover specific situations and seem to only work if your family or situation fits in their box. The truth is, I can’t spend 45 minutes slowly channeling my inner Dali Lama to one kid while the other 3 are starting a bonfire on the sofa. I needed something that works in my real world.
Enter Drs. Mortimer and Avirett. These are two practicing phycologists who spent the time to build a true foundation in sound, proven, parenting principles and have worked with real parents, real kids, and real problems. That level of commitment comes through in what you see. And they manage to do all of that in a way that remains approachable and engaging.
Bottom line: Mind and Child’s Parenting 101 course is a great resource for any parent that wants proven, practical guidance from true experts in the field. You will get both the long-term strategies on creating a consistent and healthy environment for your kids AND tips on dealing with real-world situations that truly work. I cannot recommend this course highly enough!
