Tuning Into Kids

For Parents


This Program is Designed for Parents

Tuning in to Kids® is an emotion-focussed parenting program. It provides parents and carers with skills in emotion coaching, which is about recognising, understanding and managing their own and their children’s emotions. When children develop these emotional skills they are better able to negotiate the ups and downs of life.  Tuning into kids focuses on the emotional connection between parents / carers and their children, aged 4-10 years.

The evidence-based program has proven success in improving parenting, parent-child relationships, and children’s emotional resilience. Most importantly, it is an ‘evidence-based’ program which means that randomised controlled research trials have shown that it makes a difference to parents and children. To date over 100,000 parents have attended Tuning into Kids® programs in Australia alone.

Tuning in to Kids teaches parents how to help their child to develop emotional intelligence. Children with higher emotional intelligence:


  • Have greater success with making and keeping friends
  • Have better concentration at school
  • Are more able to calm down when upset or angry

Tuning into kids is an evidenced based, emotion coaching parenting program. This six week course is suitable for parents of children from pre-school age to ten years. Parents of older children may benefit from Tuning into Teens.

Tuning into Kids helps parents to:

  • Improve interactions with their child
  • Better understand their child
  • Help their child learn to manage their emotion
  • Help to prevent behaviour problems
  • Teach their child to deal with conflict

“I have gained so much insight and skills from the Tuning into Teens Course. It has given me a greater understanding into how teenagers think and communicate as well as how to parent and communicate more mindfully so as to foster strong relationships where my children can feel heard and free to express and explore their own emotions. My only regret is that I did not have the opportunity to do this course sooner. Phyllis is a caring and gifted presenter who has a genuine concern for those she coaches. I have learnt so much from her.”

“I took Phyllis’ course with my girls being 9 & 6 years old, and although its specific to teenagers, I have found it easy to implement with my kids from now. Phyllis was able to workshop and guide us on our personal communication styles, and it was great hearing other parent’s examples too. The course was very practical and a safe space to share, and I definitely had a couple of ‘aha’ moments!”


June 2020

“Our teens seem to have modified their behaviours for a more peaceful household which is a result of our new knowledge and skills.”


May 2019

“I learnt that we are not alone with the challenges and struggles of raising teens. I learnt that I have the ability to address issues with improved skills.“


March 2019

“Great to see that I am not the only one going through this. Great course and great handouts.”


November 2019

“Thank you for presenting this amazing course. It is one of the best things I’ve done. Can’t thank you enough. Phyllis, you are beautiful making this such a positive experience.”


September 2019

“Dear Phyllis, there are no words to thank you. I have learnt so much, not only about myself but why behaviours occur. It has been a teary (on occasion) but very positive experience. I really love your delivery and acceptance of all of us. Thank you so very much. “


June 2019

“The weekly exercises were terrific to do with my teens each week. It really helped us create a connection.”
