helping parents and teachers

raise your child's social & emotional life skills

We give parents and teachers the tools and personal connection they need to raise kids who are responsible, empathetic, understand and manage their emotions, set set and achieve goals and know how to have positive relationships.

Children thrive. Schools win. Workplaces benefit. Society strengthens.  All due to social-emotional learning.


Mobile devices are changing how we interact with one another, esp. our kids.

Research shows that when a parent is highly absorbed on her cell phone, she

talks less to her child,
responds slower (or not at all)
to her child's bids for attention and often
overreacts to her child's behavior.

The more parents are digitally connected...
The more disconnected they are with their kids...
And the less social-emotional learning is taking place.

Research has shown that kids with healthy social-emotional skills are more likely to succeed in school, work and life.

And because parents are the most influential people in a child's life...they're the BEST teachers!

Maybe it's time we step back and look at our relationship with our devices.

ask yourself

  • Am I using my phone as a stress reliever vs. taking a walk or deep breaths?
  • Do I use my phone as a way to withdraw from difficult family interactions?
  • What aspects of screen time stress me out the most or trigger insecurities?
  • What types of relationships with devices am I modeling to my kids?
  • Am I teaching them it’s okay to text & drive, or stare at phones while people try to talk to us?

3 important phrases you should say daily to your child

we value people

"What I got from Marissa is the confidence that I could really do it and it wasn’t as daunting as I had made it out to be in my head. I’m eternally grateful to Marissa for lighting my path with her expertise and I hope you’ll allow her to do the same for you." - Julie Enstall
"Marissa has been an absolute encouragement and incredible support to me. She truly wants you to succeed and will do everything she can to renew your confidence. And if you're considering homeschooling or have been doing it for awhile, Marissa will transform the way you do school at home. I highly recommend her program to everyone I know." - Melissa Kossack
"I can't imagine not having Marissa's help when I first started homeschooling. I would have wasted a lot of time feeling frustrated and may have just given up. Marissa's my angel." - Michelle Cuerquis
One of the biggest blessings is how Marissa helped me align both my schedule and my goals so that I'm accomplishing what I want to accomplish. Marissa has so much wisdom and identifies with how you feel since she's been through it. If you're looking to succeed as a parent, Marissa will make sure you do." - Melanie Vaughan

"Marissa and Bill (Founders) are two of the most passionate people I know when it comes to helping others.
You just have to look at their two kids as prime examples of what they are all about.
Their integrity and know-how are second to none."
