Connected Parenting™ shares techniques that therapists use to help parents soothe their child as well as enhance the parent-child bond. It's based on the understanding that correcting and guiding behavior works best when it is preceded by and linked to empathy.

At the heart of this parenting model is the CALM Technique which helps parents accurately attune to children’s affect and experience.

What Industry Experts Say About Our Method:

"Jennifer Kolari provides us with a clear-minded view of how to create and continue an open, attuned relationship with our children as they move through the important and at times, tumultuous transition from childhood to adolescence.”
Dr. Daniel J. Siegel, Co-Author of The Whole-Brain Child and Parenting From The Inside Out
"'Connected Parenting' advises us not just how to parent, but far more important - who to be as parents. The therapeutic methods suggested by Jennifer Kolari are based not on simple-minded behavioral solutions, but on building warm, nurturing relationship with our children, with insight and compassion not only for their little flaws, but also for our own larger ones."
– Gabor Maté, M.D., Renowned speaker and bestselling author of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts
"Connected Parenting is the ultimate survival guide for families. Jennifer’s methods restore the trust, respect and affection that difficult behaviours can undermine, while helping to manage those same behaviours with original, fresh techniques. Parents will see how their relationships with their children can be repaired and strengthened in ways they may have thought were impossible."
– Michael Kearns, Senior Producer, CBC News: Sunday/Sunday Night
"Jennifer Kolari helped steer us toward more effective parenting of the challenging child, so we could focus on the joyful gifts rather than the problems... Parenting doesn’t come with a textbook—Connected Parenting is close to it."

– Susan Ormiston, Broadcaster, CBC, The National
"Kolari helps parents understand complicated teen brain chemistry and offers practical parenting advice that is respectful and effective."

– Alyson Schafer, Author of Honey I Wrecked the Kids

The 5 Shifts of Parenting

Parenting a strong-willed child or “gladiator child,” as I like to call them, can be so challenging. They are feisty, powerful children who are often built to be leaders, but have an intense counter-will and feelings that are way too big for their little bodies. Many of the practical, sensible parenting models that work beautifully with your other kids, backfire with your gladiator.

Join the Connected Parenting Seminar where Jennifer will share the 5-Shifts you must know to bring out the best in you and your child.
