Do you already feel overwhelmed with your life but really want or NEED to teach your kids to be kind?
Do you feel guilty when you feel like you can't do enough?
This 4 week course presents 3 doable and maintainable strategies for busy parents to use when taking care of their family and teaching their kids to be kind. Using the science behind how we experience kindness and what our brain reacts to, Sheila shares how she has been able to be successful and mentor other families to success in teaching their kids to be kind without adding MORE and MORE to do into their schedules.
This isn't a course based on theory. This is a course based on the research of kindness, how it affects us, and the REAL LIFE experience of working with families for 4 years in raising kind kids.
At the end of this 4 Week E-course:
1. You have access to the best ideas to use in integrating kindness into your schedule, not on top of your schedule.
2. You see teaching kindness as more than completing acts of kindness or service projects. (you'll start losing the guilt here!)
3. You walk away a customized Family Kindness Plan outlining how you can make kindness a greater part of your life, your lifestyle, without feeling guilty or going crazy.
"I walked away feeling PUMPED that I can actually teach my kids about being kind
and helping others and I don't have to stress out about it." Charlotte

"I could sit in Sheila's class all day and not get bored. I don't care if she is talking about how to make toilet paper. She is creative, enthusiastic, and effective at what she does. What she teaches makes a difference!" Shelly, mom of 4
Sheila brings to life acts of kindness and service projects that kids can do. In her daily adventures of serving with her young boys, she has witnessed the awesome things that happen when kids serve others. She started serving daily with her kids in 2012, when they were 3 and 5 years old. What started as a way to teach her kids empathy has transitioned to a way of life and a connection with thousands of others.
She earned her Bachelor of Science in Special Education from The University of Texas at Austin and her Masters of Education in Learning and Teaching from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She has taught in a variety of settings, and, along each step of the way, she worked with parents and students to improve parenting and learning skills.
Known for her innovative teaching skills and ability to reach even the "hardest to reach" student, Sheila's professional background is rooted in applying best teaching practices while addressing the needs of the student.
As an educator and professional with 20 years of experience in working with children and parents, she truly believes that teaching kids to be kind results in a happier family. Sheila is also a Daily Point of Light Winner because of her contributions to family volunteerism and community service.
