Tuning in to Kids is an evidence based parenting program developed by Dr. Sophie Havighurst and Ann Harley in Melbourne, Australia with research trials conducted through The University of Melbourne. The program provides a new way of working with families that focuses on the emotional connection between parents and children. The program teaches parents skills in emotion coaching, which is to recognise, understand and manage their own and their children’s emotions.
