Learn the FocusedKids Method
For Educators: The Calm & Connected Classroom
Are you feeling over-reactive and burnt out? Maybe you’re struggling to connect with your students in the way you want? FocusedKids online and in-person trainings help educators learn how to teach brain-based social emotional learning skills to students. Educators and students can then lean on these skills when things are feeling a little out of control.
For Parents: The Calm & Connected Home
Meltdowns, defiance, whining, and impulsive behavior. Sound familiar? The Calm and Connected Home brain-based parenting workshop empowers parents and caregivers. It does this by teaching them what’s going on in their children’s brains and how to intentionally respond when things aren’t going according to plan. Learn more about this life-changing workshop.

What People Are Saying
“FocusedKids gave my husband and me the space to work through some daily parenting struggles together and develop a common language and strategies that we both can employ. It allowed us the time to reflect on our parenting, and our children, in a mindful, therapeutic way. Amanda created a group atmosphere that felt supportive and offered realistic solutions to those tricky daily situations that we find ourselves in when we parent.”
“We really love Focused Kids. It has really made a positive difference in our classes. We have some high-energy children and it has really calmed down our class. Our children have learned to self-sooth by breathing when they have big feelings, they are able control their bodies, and they have learned all the parts of the brain and what they do. It has helped all of us in the classroom.”
I wouldn’t normally share this but in the interest of the amazing impact your program had on my daughter I want to show you that she was chosen for the excellence award at her whole elementary school! First preschooler to EVER RECEIVE THIS AWARD FROM THE PRINCIPAL! beyond thankful!!!
