Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Nurtured Heart Approach really different?

YES! The Nurtured Heart Approach is so different that one of the first things we discuss in the seminar or in counseling is how it is different and why traditional parenting and child management techniques can actually make things worse instead of better.

I’ve tried lots of techniques. Why should I try one more?

As a parent of a highly intense child, I had the same question about the Nurtured Heart Approach. My answer was in the results that I got when using this approach. Within hours (yes, hours!) my child’s behavior began to change. Since then, my own frustration and sadness about my child’s behavior have been transformed into pride and joy!

If it is so effective, is it hard to learn?

One of the most important aspects of a parenting approach, in my opinion, is whether or not it can be applied easily in nearly every situation. Of all the parenting techniques I have researched or studied, the Nurtured Heart Approach is one of the easiest to learn. After taking the first seminar I was able to use the Nurtured Heart Approach with success right away. After a few short weeks of practice, it became second nature to me.  

What about problems at school?

As part of the Nurtured Heart Approach training, parents will learn how to transfer the positive effects of the Nurtured Heart Approach to the school setting whether or not teachers learn this approach. Teachers who learn this approach report more on-task behavior, fewer disruptions and higher levels of achievement and attendance!

It sounds too good to be true.

Even though it sounded too good to be true, I had nothing to lose but my child’s difficult behavior so I took the chance and went to the first seminar. Since then I have been using it effectively in my own home and in my clinical practice I have seen hundreds of families transformed through use of the NHA techniques.

How do I get a copy of the book Transforming The Difficult Child, The Nurtured Heart Approach?

I will have them for sale at all seminars and office locations or you can go to to order the book.

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.

A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved -- I do not expect the house to fall -- but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.

I do the very best I can, I mean to keep going. If the end brings me out all right, then what is said against me won't matter. If I'm wrong, ten angels swearing I was right won't make a difference.

Our safety, our liberty, depends upon preserving the Constitution of the United States as our fathers made it inviolate. The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
