“I cannot say enough how doing the Building Emotional Understanding parenting class has changed my life. There is an overall change where people are commenting on how much more comfortable in her own skin and content my 5 year old daughter is and how she has overcome her fears. Despite twice yearly visits to the coast my daughter was terrified of the sea. Through Special Time and Staylistening, she literally runs into the ocean and we spend hours playing in the waves.”


Watch Hand in Hand founder, Patty Wipfler, discuss the instinct to connect.















Connection builds sound judgment


“The videos in this parenting class were richly informative, adding depth to the written materials and phone calls. I’d like to add that they were also calming – when I’d get irritated I found reviewing a video brought me back to a more centered place from which I could parent better.”

  • The six tools needed to raise a happy, well-rounded child

  • The common causes of crying and its benefits

  • Why your child throws tantrums and how you can respond to them

  • How your child’s emotions work

  • How to heal your child’s fears

  • How to help an angry child become playful and compassionate


“I took a Building Emotional Understanding parenting class to improve my parenting. Little did I know just how much it would improve my life. Had anyone ever told me that a different approach to parenting would make being mum more fun and help me to stand up and take action in difficult situations confidently, securely and bravely, I would have thought them joking This has been my experience, in less than 6 months.” – Tara McCay, Arizona

“I’m usually tired after work, a long day, and my attention flags. I wondered whether I would make it through the 6 weeks, but I feel so energized. I feel a lot more confident being a parent now. My relationship with my children is so much better. I called my wife in Singapore to tell her how great I was doing with the kids while she was away, and she told me she was too tired to listen, but I told her “You have to hear this! I’m a Superdad! I have to tell you what’s been happening!”
