At Nurturing Life Concepts, LLC we teach The Nurtured Heart Approach, a parenting philosophy and social curriculum developed by Howard Glasser which will dramatically change the way you engage with children and teens. Glasser’s tried-and-true secular approach matches up scripturally, so you can feel confident that you are following God’s plan for raising your children.
In a nutshell, the Nurtured Heart Approach throws a spotlight on the best way to establish a healthy relationship with children, teens and in all other relationships. Parents, teachers, therapists and anyone else who regularly encounters children or teens and wants to foster inner wealth and greatness in them will find the strategies life-changing. By following the structure and strategies of the Nurtured Heart Approach, we will teach you how to engage in positive relationship with your children and teens while providing them with clear and structured boundaries that keep them safe and God-honoring.
It is our belief (and experience) that children and teens who receive the right balance of positive energy in their relationships and appropriate boundaries become more adept at discerning what is in their best interest, so they make better choices. They develop a better sense of whom they are as human beings, and of where they want to go in life, along with a clear understanding of how incorruptible core values can guide them to their destiny.
Children and teens whom are parented, counseled or taught through the Nurtured Heart Approach develop “inner wealth”. This storehouse of intrinsic personal value builds the child up on the inside so that outside influences and poor choices become much less desirable. Children are taught about positive personal interactions, causing them to focus their drive and intensity like a laser beam: to grow into the success story you and they know they can be! As children develop a true sense of inner wealth, alarming, destructive and inappropriate behaviors quickly disappear!
