About the show


For over 30 years, Hand in Hand Parenting has been helping parents understand their children's emotions and the impact they have on a child's behavior. Using five science-backed tools, this approach helps parents support their children so that behaviors transform, without timeouts, punishments or yelling. It's a nurturing approach that feels good for parents ands their children, and it builds co-operation, co-regulation and compassion. 

In these bite-sized podcasts, you’ll find  intimate peeks into how you can use the tools in your family – and one small thing you can try every week, so you can meet any challenging behavior with confidence.
