Want to Raise Emotionally Intelligent Children?
Join our 30-day practice program and gift your children the power of emotional intelligence to shape their future.
Children learn emotions by mimicking the people around them, so parents are their primary source of emotional learning.
If you want to help your child grow emotionally, the place to begin is developing your emotional intelligence. Most of us never had formal education in the domain of emotions, so we have learned them from our parents, families, and culture. Our method offers a simple, practical approach to enhance your relationships with emotions.
Many parents are not comfortable when children throw tantrums, talk back, or get upset. However, such behaviors are the impulses of one or more emotions such as frustration, anger, resentment, or sadness.
As you build your emotional knowledge, you will begin seeing emotions as a normal part of life, just like sleeping or breathing. You will be able to talk to your child and help them explore the emotions they are experiencing and how those emotions are trying to guide them.
This will create a more peaceful atmosphere in your family, and you will no longer have to resort to desperate parenting approaches like yelling or punishment.
Sometimes people say their child is “too emotional,” referring to aggressive behavior. On the other hand, a quiet child is sometimes thought to have fewer emotions.
The fact is that every child has emotions, and the difference is in the way they are expressed. Helping children to pause, listen to their feelings, and name those feelings is the place to develop emotional competency.
In our work, we use a palette of 250 emotions, and each of them has a story, impulse, and purpose. Decoding and learning emotions this way makes it possible for children to learn emotions, just like the periodic table or math.
30-DAY VIRTUAL COACHING
Strengthening emotions is like building muscles; daily practice is the path to positive impact. The good news about emotional learning is that you are always “in the laboratory.” Every moment of each day, you experience a steady flow of emotions. At any moment, you can stop to reflect on the emotion you are in or one you just experienced. You can think ahead to your next interaction and decide which emotion or emotions will be most helpful. You can observe your children and be curious about the connection between what they say, what they do, and the emotions they are experiencing. There is a never-ending supply of raw materials. This program will help you understand emotions, how they work, and how to use them as a parenting tool.
Address the Top 6 Parenting Challenges by Working With Your Own and Your Child's Emotions
All human beings have emotions, and they determine what we do in life, why do we do certain things, how do we do them, and if we ever do them. This driver allows parents to understand and work directly with the emotions behind their children’s behavior and actions.

My search for a practical learning program
As a parent, this program has put an end to my long search of a practical and experiential path to developing emotional intelligence.
A must for parents
Dan takes to the next level what Daniel Goleman started with emotional intelligence. A must for parents who want to tap into emotions as fuel for action.
Three Levels of Learning and Transformation
Level 1: Understanding Emotions
Helping your child develop emotionally begins with noticing, naming, and normalizing their emotions. In this program, you will gain a thorough understanding of emotions and how they work. You will learn to deconstruct 65 emotions and see their patterns in your interactions with your child. Upon completion, you will have the distinctions to identify your child's emotional barriers and be able to lead conversations to help them shift their emotions as necessary.
Level 2: Practicing Emotions
At this level, we will help you apply the concept of emotional intelligence to your parenting. We have designed a 30-day learning path with daily activities for reflection and practice. There are weekly goals, and you will share your progress with Dan and get his feedback. You will identify your strengths and areas for improvement. Our learning process follows the International Coach Federation's ethical practices.
Level 3: Mastering Emotions
Engaging in 1-ON-1 learning with Dan goes to the heart of who you are, which is what determines how you perform in your relationships. His coaching includes immersive learning to make the theories and models relevant to you individually to gain maximum learning in the shortest time. Dan will clarify your objective, explore all the possibilities imaginable, select a path, design the next steps that will lead to success.
Learn to Use the Principles of Coaching in Your Parenting
The most common methods parents use to guide their children are directing and advising. These work well in some situations but often have limited value. Coaching is a method of learning and a creative process that helps a person eliminate their blind spots and change the way they see the world. Today, coaching is recognized as a powerful method that can transform life. Coaching is a great addition to your parenting tools, and when combined with other methods, can help you empower your children to maximize their potential. Our Emotions-Centered Coaching Method lets you help your child use their emotions as a tool in shaping their own future.
How Emotions-Centered Coaching is Different From Traditional Parenting Approaches
Not relying on logic alone to influence your child
Both children and adults do things because they "make sense." Logic, together with emotions, is what adds up to something making sense. Logic alone won't do it, as you've experienced.
Not getting ‘caught’ in your child’s emotions
Because emotions are 'contagious,' parents often get caught up in their child's emotions rather than maintaining their own emotional center. This leads to conversations that don't end well.
Empowering your child to take responsibility for their actions
Our methods are based on the principles of coaching, which put the responsibility to choose actions on the child, which means they will be more committed than if they are told what to do.
Shifting from a carrot-and-stick approach
Both these approaches attempt to change your child's behavior from the outside. What is more powerful and sustainable is developing their inner resources to make commitments and stick to them.
We sincerely want you and your family to benefit from this program. We see it as our way of showing our commitment to creating a better world through our children’s emotional growth.
You can’t improve what you don’t measure, so we have included a self-assessment to show where you are now and track your progress at key milestones. You will follow a structured learning path comprised of multiple levels and progress toward deeper emotional literacy by unlocking the levels sequentially.
Building emotional intelligence is a continuous life-long process. However, we have designed the toolkit for you to fast-track your learning by practicing for just 30 days. This would be a great start for your learning, and you can choose to advance to the next level at your own pace. We will support you throughout your learning journey.
These interactive scenarios and simulations will walk you through the process of coaching children to help them eliminate their blind spots and take accountability for their behaviors and actions, rather than punishing or forcing them.
We just don't teach you emotions. We will coach you virtually and help you put EI into practice.
We have created a flexible learning path for you to start at an entry-level and progress toward mastery.

Hear What Sheila Pyne From Canada Says About This Program
"I find the more I can name and understand emotions and the way emotions serve us, the easier it is to teach emotional literacy to children. This method makes it easy to understand how to speak with children about emotions using simple explanations and examples of emotions. I appreciated how in the program Dan gives specific examples that are very relevant to home situations.
I cannot say enough for the ongoing learning and insights the emotional growth program has given me and how it has increased my ability to understand children, family, and friends. Every day I become more aware of my own emotions, where I feel them in my body, and increase my ability to name the emotions others are experiencing."
The program will be helpful for parents of newborns up to teenagers because the focus is on developing parents’ emotional literacy first and then helping their children grow emotionally. Children learn emotions by mimicking the people around them, so parents are their primary source of emotional
Yes, our method requires that parents begin first then impart the knowledge to their children. But you don’t have to know it all. It is highly effective and fun to have the entire family involved and learning together as a group. A child raised by emotionally literate parents will automatically develop this competency even without explicit instruction.
You may not be aware that you are always learning emotionally. If you weren’t, you would not have grown emotionally from your level as a baby to what you are today. It would be good to have some formal sessions, but once you begin, emotional learning will spread organically within your family.
Yes. All the distinctions you learn from this program can help you in your professional endeavors. Whether you are a teacher, doctor, lawyer, entrepreneur, pilot, or nurse, emotional literacy is a critical skill that can help you become a better leader and more satisfied human being.
Our Mission is to Make Emotions Common Sense in the World.
Just as children are learning to build linguistic skills through spelling, reading, and writing, they can build their emotional skills by understanding emotions, naming them, and using them advantageously. We offer emotional learning as a facet of educating children, parents, and teachers because they are intertwined, synergistic, and represent the future. The development of Emotional Literacy will allow children to be more successful in every area of their lives. Our programs will help you understand emotions in a new way and learn how to embrace them as a practical tool rather than seeing them as an adversary.
Let's together develop your child's emotional intelligence.
"Twenty years ago, when I started my coaching career, I was emotionally ignorant. One of the biggest Aha moments in my life was realizing how little I understood emotions, my own included. From then on, I started looking for ways to enhance my emotional skills. Failing to find a practical method, I committed myself to create one. My vision is a world where all humans are emotionally literate."
