Our Mission

Childrens Success FoundationThe mission of the Children’s Success Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization, is to advance the work of the Nurtured Heart Approach®, a dynamic relationship-focused methodology that builds Inner Wealth in children, empowering them to channel their intensity in productive ways, ensuring their successful future.

To nurture success, the Children’s Success Foundation trains and certifies parents, educators, treatment professionals, foster parents and communities in the Nurtured Heart Approach.

About the Nurtured Heart Approach
Nurtured Heart Approach®

The Nurtured Heart Approach® is a relationship-focused methodology – founded strategically on The 3 Stands – for helping children (and adults) build their Inner Wealth® and use their intensity in successful ways.

This approach was birthed by the need for transforming the most intense children – including those with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder and other behavioral diagnoses – by channeling their energies in inspiring ways. Now, NHA is widely acclaimed as a powerful way of helping all children to flourish while facilitating parenting and classroom success.

Children get so much more – more relationship, more intense relationship – when things are going wrong. This is the foundational error in conventional ways of parenting, school discipline and treatment. The Nurtured Heart Approach will bring you to understand how your best efforts may actually fuel the fire of challenging behavior – and how to make simple shifts that will change everything.

  • "My husband and I were desperate to find an approach that worked for our 'high energy' 6 year old boy. No form of discipline whatsoever would make him listen to us or follow rules. He had always been a handful but somehow things had gone from bad to worse. Nurtured Heart Approach transformed my son into a well behaved, considerate boy who LISTENS to his parents. I would consider that a miracle, and I am eternally grateful!"

    Anonymous Mother
  • Our son has always been intense, but as he approached 4 he was starting to act out in increasingly difficult and physical ways. Within 48 hours of [using NHA and] reinforcing his positive behaviors and de-energizing his negative behaviors he was a different child. 95% less hitting. 95% less screaming. 95% less defiance. 95% more solo playtime. 95% more patience. I fell in love with my son all over again, and my wife thinks he's a completely different child. Before you try medication or retreat behind a label, trust that both you and your child can grow together. Behavior, attention, and trust are qualities that can be developed through deliberate practice. It's worth it."
