Our Mission

We act on the belief – that a child is the most precious of all human beings, and the
ability to withstand the emotional and social challenges as a teenager, clearly rests
upon a caring relationship between parent, teacher and child.

Our mission is to advance the social and emotional behavior of children of all ethnic
groups, through a series of interlocking parent, teacher and child programs supported by more than thirty years of clinically proven worldwide research.

Our goal is to deliver evidence-based programs and materials that develop positive parent-teacher-child relationships and assist in preventing and treating behavior problems and promoting social, emotional, and academic competence before a child becomes an adult.
