The Nurtured Heart Approach is a set of strategies that help adults guide children (any age) towards self-regulation while it transforms the way the child feels about themselves, the caregiver and the world around them. The child builds positive self-worth by being seen and acknowledged by the adult when things are not going wrong (NHA calls this Inner WealthTM ). The child learns to trust that they will receive energized recognition in response to their positive behavior. The set of strategies allows the adult to frame a child’s energetic behaviors as intensity and powerful fuel that can propel this child to amazing achievements while challenging behavior decreases. The adult uses this approach with relentless commitment, consistency and clarity.
Researchers found that even more than IQ, your emotional awareness and ability to handle your feelings will determine your success and happiness in all walks of life. Drs. John & Julie Gottman used their research to create Emotion Coaching: The Heart of Parenting. It is a 5 step method that builds emotional intelligence and creates positive, long lasting effects for children. It builds a child’s confidence and helps them grow socially, emotionally and intellectually. Being an Emotion Coach for your child allows you to attune with your child. Being emotionally connected to your child is a great way to listen to your child.
