Two Component Approach

It is now widely accepted that the healthy development of children is the bedrock required to build an improved future for everyone.   The bulk of the conversation to date, however, has centered around the supports children need outside the home.  Although improved policy and programs that support children and families are essential, it is parents, more than any other single factor, that influence the adults their children will become.  As a result, our two component approach has parents, and their relationships with their children, front and center. 

  1. Increase awareness of the indispensable role parents have in creating the adults of tomorrow
    through the interactions they have with their children today.

     

  2. Support parents in helping their children become happy, confident, capable adults
    able to contribute to the world around them. 

 

Helping to ensure our children develop into happy, confident adults able to and interested in contributing to the world around them doesn’t happen by accident.   It is time for us to move beyond the old adage “They sure don’t come with instructions.” Raising our children is worth the forethought and time we put into our work, retirement, or hobbies.

At Our Starting Point,
we are committed to supporting parents in their efforts to promote
their child's optimal cognitive, emotional, and social development.
To do so, we offer:
 
  1. Parent coaching that is tailored to you, your children, your family, and your desired results.
     
  2. Education programs targeted to developing key character traits.
