What Experts Are Saying About Our Approach

"'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
"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 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
