  • Emotional health is widely misunderstood.
  • When adults (parents, teachers, and professionals) learn the ideas and strategies of positive emotional health things get easier. (7 life-changing ideas shared)
  •  Cultivating a mindset of emotional health is key for long-term health.
  •  Explaining things to children – in age appropriate ways, helps them grasp how emotions work, and what they can do with them (especially the tough ones!).
  •  Emotional health is a precursor for happiness, and every adult (parent, teacher)wants their children to become happier.
  •  Complex topics covered such as: Technology addiction, college admissions pressure, social media, cyber-bullying, and fear of school shootings.

  • Becoming knowledgeable about today’s youth vocabulary (what they really say),and how to positively impact their choices, especially on “big” issues.
  • Complex topics include: Cheating, vaping (or other addictions), video games, peer pressure, anxiety, fear of school shooting, social media and technology.

  • Schools throughout the United States (and world) are refocusing their efforts on nurturing student well-being along with academic achievement.
  • Well-being centered schools do 5 things differently, which revealed a commitment to nurturing the “whole” child and has produced higher academic outcomes and measured pro-social behaviors.

Emotional Balance: The Whole Brain Approach

Emotional health is the skill of balance. Maureen inspires audiences by sharing how the whole brain approach facilitates emotional health, and intelligence in today’s children.

  • Children who learn to make decisions from a whole brain approach make better choices, especially regarding their emotional well-being.
  • Maureen shares how to help creative (right brain) children bring their logic (left brain) online sooner, and vice versa.
  • Boys and girls (and us adults too!) who can make integrated choices (right and left brain) can learn to find emotional balance, reset themselves, and make choices from a calmer place.
  • Understanding the science of emotional balance and learning new strategies to help your children develop those much-needed skills sets them up for positive life experiences.
