Your learning guide.
I'm Judith Pinto, an experienced child development & mental health specialist and parent educator. I help anxious parents care for anxious, angry, oppositional or emotionally dysregulated children. Parents who work with me feel empowered and confident in their ability to offer warmth and connection while providing clear, appropriate limits and structure. Parents who work with me experience a stronger, healthier relationship with their children, knowing that they truly "feel" loved and are able to accept their support. From this place of safe connection, children learn to regulate their attention, emotions, moods and behaviours. That means no more tantrums, meltdowns or arguments. Just healthy relationships!
Over the past 25 years, I have helped so many parents solve the most important problem in their home and family life - feeling disconnected as a family. My highly experiential educational offerings will give you the chance to really understand and apply new insights in neuroscience, attachment, sensory processing and anxiety in your daily interactions with your children. You'll FEEL confident because you'll BE so much more skilled. You'll know you've got this!
ALSO, in case you're interested, the business name, Kyokan (pronounced "Kee-oh-khan") is a Japanese word that means "empathetic". Kyokan Connections gives parents the chance to explore, practice and delve deeply into learning how to engage with empathic curiosity with their children. This is foundational to a healthy, loving, lifelong relationship.
