Ever wondered about that parent, the one who's child appears on the verge of a major meltdown. But a touch, a look, a short conversation and suddenly the child is back, happily playing again?

The next time you are struggling with your child you wonder:

What do they know that I don’t? Is there a secret?


Playful Wisdom offers real-world guidance to help you develop that inner know-how. So that you know what to do when you don’t know what to do.


What is Playful Wisdom Parenting?

Parenting can be playful. In fact, when parenting is playful, kids feel more connected. When kids feel more connected, they are less likely to melt down or shut down. When kids feel more connected, they are more likely to maintain their cool.

Let us show you how.

My B in all his glory

Playful Wisdom was developed by a collective of highly-trained child & family therapists. We are on the front lines of child mental health and have “seen it all.” Every day we see how empowered parents are the greatest resource for helping children overcome difficulties. We also recognized the lack of sound resources and guidance available for parents.

Playful Wisdom aims to fill that gap by empowering parents with education and access.


We offer in-person parent courses, online "wisdom" seminars, and education that combines the latest research in neuroscience with in-depth understanding of child development, family dynamics, mental wellness and practical know-how to guide parents through everyday situations and address concerns before they become bigger issues.


Too many lightly trained “parenting specialists” have not studied in-depth childhood issues and struggle to identify underlying dynamics. Our highly-trained team possesses in-depth understanding of child development, family dynamics, and child mental health issues. We have the know-how to give parents the tools they need to be their children’s first line of defense and primary resource as they face the challenges of the modern world. We identify when deeper issues such as family dynamics, trauma, mental health, sensory processing differences, or other issues require specific interventions or approaches.

We help empower parents through these difficulties.
