In a nutshell
The WhenThen Kids program is a how-to series. You receive emails filled with cutting-edge scientific research & tips. You become an expert. You raise strong, confident, resilient kids.
You are busy. You have a lot going on, sometimes too much. But your child is incredibly important to you. We know how you can help your child succeed. And it will only take five minutes a day.
You commit less than five minutes per day.
How can five minutes a day make a difference?
Research shows that it is the quality of the time spent with children, not the amount, that makes the biggest difference. Our program follows this principle. We give you high-quality content, with no fluff.
If it relates to children’s confidence and resilience, we have it.
Helping your child master him or herself. Adults who master themselves perform better at work and in relationships.
Helping your child nurture and protect important relationships. Strong friendships are the most reliable indicator your child will have a long and healthy life.
Helping your child build habits to become healthy and independent. Being happy and successful takes work! But it’s easier with these habits.
A Meaningful Life
Helping your child live a happy life. Happiness leads to success (not the opposite way around).
So 16 topics?
Yes, there are 16 different topic areas. For each topic, there are a few different skills. For example, connecting with others means you are able to read facial expressions, body language, and verbalize what you see. Each of these skills is described in detail in a 6-part email series.
You get short emails, in a structured format. Over two weeks you receive 6 emails.
1. Research – why is this skill important? What does the research say?
2. Questions to get you thinking…maybe you are already teaching this skill!
3, 4, 5. Practical strategies & activities – because they are useful!
6. Resources – for those of you who like to dig deeper into the research
Never fall behind
We know you are busy. This is why each skill is covered over the two week period. You have time to catch up, should life get in the way. And hey, sometimes life does find a way of getting busy!
