You can't control what happens next.

But you can give your family tools to thrive no matter what.

Families are being challenged like never before. This is just the beginning. We know there will be more challenges to come but we can't know what they will be. When so much change happens so quickly, you discover pretty quickly which problem responses you have that can adapt to new challenges. The old tools for communication, problem and emotional management are put to the test, it makes sense this would happen. An increase in stress, uncertainty and in-home demands means every family can benefit from reviewing the problem responses that are working, and creating new ones. Problems of today can push families farther apart, or it can bring them closer together. But, what if you could change the direction? What if you could play the director and transform your family dynamic? What if your kids took on the role of partners in the problem solving process? What if together, you could embrace new challenges? What if everyone participated more in meeting family needs? What if you could use this time to develop resilience, strengths and leadership skills? How could it reduce stress and improve relationships? Would it increase the potential for success? Would it improve your family dynamic? Sure it would. We can help.

What is this exactly?

Family Fun with a Purpose. 

This is: a play based approach to building a family team - using  games, conversation starters and activities that can be used to address real-world problems.  This is an entire system, but the first set of tools is the family team training system. This  program is a simple set of 10 activities that can be completed within 2-3 hours total, over the course of a week or a more. These can help your family reframe problems into opportunities that bring families closer - to work together and support one another through the day-to day challenges. But, that is just the beginning of a full system to help children and families alike manage emotions, develop advanced problems-solving strategies and improve leadership skills. 

The challenges our children, our friends and communities  face are unprecedented.  Home can be a training ground or a battle ground. Creative tools for communication are  key to unlocking happy home. 

The more tools you have to work with, the more actively you can help your children navigate challenges- from the everyday issues to crisis situations. The more communication and tools you have, the more resources you have to know when problems are brewing. When kids have problems and they don't have the tools to talk or listen, the problem is sure to get worse. 

Well-meaning parents try to protect their children from having problems, or parents solve problems for them.  It's so much faster to just fix problems when they arise. Or, parents want their children to be happy, so they try to protect their children from having to face problem. This system helps you to support your child in developing a powerful system for facing problems and developing those skills that will give them and your whole family a strengthened sense of resilience. When your kids are managing more problems, you can focus on the bigger challenges of the day. 

This is not a system to manage behavior, or to 'fix your kids,' but it can help. This is not a system to fix every problem, but it is designed to lay a foundation that can adapt to your family's changing needs. Think of it like going to the gym. You get the benefit when you are doing it. Sometimes it is hard to get started, but it doesn't take long to feel stronger, healthier and happier. Yeah. this is like that.

This program is unlike any other. The majority of ‘parenting’ programs are designed to address discipline and behaviour challenges. We believe positive behaviour, self-esteem and success are a reflection of leadership-level problem-solving skills. 

This program puts a playful spin on every-day problems. It brings families closer together. Advanced team training for families transforms problems into opportunities, conflicts into stronger relationships.

This essential training series is delivered through easy-to-follow activities that can be done in 15-minutes or less.
