His motto is to ‘celebrate calm’ and he encourages parents to take a calmer and more mindful approach to raising their children.

Kirk has dedicated so much time to learning himself and then sharing with others how to discipline without escalating the situation. Also how to parent in difficult situations with hard-to-reach kids or kids who need to be reached a different way due to anxiety, Asperger’s symptoms, ADHD and SPD.

This podcast help teach our kids how to stay calm in difficult situations and to control and manage our emotions.

I never realized how important meditation was even for my children. It is a gentle way of implementing some great life lessons and learning the difference between expressing themselves and demanding to express themselves.

I think this is a pretty accurate recommendation but also found it is useful recommendations that could also be used for two and three-year-olds.
