We are enjoying the questions colleagues and members of our community are asking about how to improve children’s cognitive and self-regulation skills in everyday life. 

Here we answer a parent question, “How can I improve my child’s cognitive skills in everyday life?”

We chose the example of morning routines as they provide a great opportunity to practice planning, sequencing, inhibition and narrative language.

We develop research-based tools, activities, and strategies to improve children’s thinking, self-regulation, learning, and behavior by increasing their executive and social-emotional skill sets. Bloom (Kenney & Young, 2015) helps parents collaborate and calm their anxious, angry and over-the-top kids building better thinking, coping and relationship skills. 70 Play Activities (Kenney & Comizio, 2016) provides activities, worksheets, and strategies to teachers, school counselors, and school psychologists to help children learn new #EF and #SEL skills.

Our goal is to change the trajectory of children’s learning with joy, empowerment, and respect. Join our motivated community of over 10,000 educators, parents & clinicians and get the news about workshops, activities, and research here.
