Tuning into Kids

  • Category:Website information

'Tuning in to Kids is an evidence-based parenting program that focuses on the emotional connection between parents and children. In particular the program teaches parents skills in emotion coaching, which is to recognise, understand and respond to children's emotions in an accepting, supportive way. This approach helps the child to understand and manage their emotions.

Tuning in to Kids was developed by Dr Sophie Havighurst and Ann Harley in Melbourne, Australia, and has been evaluated in multiple randomised controlled trials that have shown the program leads to positive outcomes including improving parenting, parent-child relationships and children's emotional competence and behaviour. The program has been particularly effective with children with clinical-level emotional and behavioural difficulties.

The Tuning in to Kids parenting program is available throughout Australia and a number of other countries.' (Tuning into Kids website)
