Reviews for
Building Regulated Families

"This is a must have curriculum for any parent looking to improve their child's behavior while building a strong bond of connection with them at the same time. Kelly teaches not only what parents can do to raise healthy and responsible kids, but also why kids "misbehave" and how to see their misbehavior as a symptom of stress and not an act of rebellion."

"'Building Regulated Families' is an important course for parents, grandparents, and really anyone who spends  time tending to the developmental needs of children. Kelly beautifully unpacks the inner-life of  children and caregivers alike, re-framing behavior with grace and intentionality."
"Building Regulated Families was very user friendly. It was easy to navigate while I had Delilah clinging to my leg asking what I was doing. I enjoyed how informative Kelly was... very upbeat and engaging. I would definitely recommend this!"
