What the Kids Are Saying

That dog was so fun!

This was awesome!

Can I do it again?

I wish I could have brought two pets on the adventure with me!

What the Parents Are Saying

Wow, I wish I had this when I was growing up!

TweenScreen would have really helped me when I couldn’t explain myself to my parents.

I thought that I knew what my kids were thinking, boy was I wrong.

TweenScreen really gave us the opportunity to open up new discussions in our house.

Tools for Elementary

One of my favorite young resources is Kimochis®. Feelings fuel behavior. Developing children have lots big, small and even unexpected feelings they need to learn to manage. Kimochis helps you give them an emotional vocabulary. They even have a Parenting Partner®.

Created through the collaboration of a clinical psychologist, educational director and Kimochis® co-founder, and tested by child therapists around the country here are some free resources for home, but we also suggest the Mixed Bag of Feelings.

Free Videos About Mental Health

Time seems to evaporate these days! We know you don’t have a lot. So rather than suggesting a lot of books we like these short videos from PsychHub™. Informative and helpful they are part of a bigger library your can find on the PsychHub™ site, but we scaled down some primary concerns for you.

Easy Videos on Types of Therapy

Reading books can take time and leave us feeling like we don’t do enough. We picked a few helpful videos from PsychHub to help you digest treatment options, however there are lots of good books and other resources as well.

Adverse (ACE) and Positive (PCE) Childhood Experiences

While we don’t want you to leave our site, sometimes it is better to let the experts lay out the details. The link provided here is an excellent way to learn about childhood experiences that impact a child forever. Both positive and negative.
