Introducing the Institute of Child Psychology

Who We are . . .


We Believe…

  • Children are inherently good
  • Secure attachments are the cornerstone of all healthy relationships: a connected child is a happy child
  • Connection not separation is the key to affective discipline 
  • Play is a child’s language and should be an integral part of their life
  • Simplifying your family’s life will strengthen your connection to one another
  • Awareness of a parent’s own childhood wounds is a critical step to becoming a mindful parent
  • Parents should matter more than peers
  • Discipline should take into account the neurological development of the child
  • There is a difference between what a child wants and what they need
  • You cannot spoil a child with love
  • Children need warmth, connection, consistency, and predictability
