Tuning in to Kids

About the program

Tuning in to Kids helps parents develop emotional competence in their children. It also encourages parents to understand the contribution of their own emotions to their parenting.

The program brings together parent education techniques and child clinical psychology.

Tuning in to Kids provides information, strategies, and resources for parents of children aged 3-6. The course helps parents improve their child’s capacity to understand their own emotions and appreciate the emotions of others.
