Yet under the tremendous pressure and influence of peers and media today, children are being conditioned to follow the American Happiness Formula: Look Good + Perform Well + Get Approval = Happiness. Rather than offering fulfillment and confidence, this outwardly based quest is causing alarming rates of childhood stress, anxiety, and depression. Life Ki-do Parenting provides the antidote, giving you the techniques to help your child find true confidence and happiness from within instead of looking to others for their validation and self-worth.Life Ki-do Parenting

The beauty of the  Life Ki-do system is that while you are teaching the tools to your child, you will find that they are equally valuable to you as an adult. While the language is kid-friendly, the concepts are universal and you will find them easy to apply in your own life. So not only will you and your child grow as individuals but with a shared vocabulary and life skill system, your family as a whole will be more unified, peaceful and fulfilled.

“A beautiful synthesis of ancient wisdom, modern psychology and mindfulness practice, skillfully adapted to children and parents. These simple strategies will help families build better connections and will help children train their brains to become more focused, calm, and socially attuned to others.” – Mark Robert Waldman, Executive MBA Faculty, Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, author of Words Can Change Your Brain
