Hand-in-Hand Parenting

on December 5th, 2011 at 3:45:06 PM

This nonprofit organization helps parents learn how to build stronger emotional connections with their child. Stronger connections have positive effects on the child's challenging behaviors and other symptoms of distress. Hand-in-Hand now offers online classes as well as a blog,  with stories by parents about how they applied what they learned from Hand-in-Hand.

"Playlistening" is one of the most powerful ways parents can understand their children and strengthen emotional bonds, explains Hand-in-Hand founder Patty Wipfler. Visit their website for many great articles, some available in Spanish.
