Emotional intelligence is a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ!

Tuning in to Kids™ is a fantastic 6 week evidence based program developed by Melbourne University’s Mindful Centre by Sophie Havighurst and Ann Harley for parents of children between the ages of 3 and 10. It is Emotional Intelligence Parenting at its best. You can learn a great set of skills and strategies to empower your children and allow them to thrive!

Come to this exclusive six session group program for parents of 3 – 10 year olds and meet other parents and share ideas about raising kids.

“I love the immediate results I have been getting with my kids, and I feel so much more empowered as a parent. I feel I now have the tools to help coach and help my children not only grow into well balanced kids but to thrive as adults. Anne is a great teacher and I would highly recommend her.” Karen L, mother of 2.

Children with higher emotional intelligence:

  • have greater success with making and keeping friends
  • have better concentration at school
  • are more able to calm down when upset or angry
  • tend to have fewer childhood illnesses

Why do it with Anne?

Anne has run over 75 groups working with 100s of parents and has specialised skills in emotional intelligence trainings for 15 years. She is a parent herself with 3 vibrant children and uses the techniques daily. She adds extra EQ skills additional to the basic program.
