Gain Skills to Make Everyday Easier

New Program Now Enrolling

The Yes Brain Learning Circle!

“The Yes Brain” Learning Circle is designed to make it easy for you to support your children to develop the resilience, courage, resourcefulness, and composure you want them to have for life. Plus, what you learn will make everyday interactions — even the toughest ones — easier to get through in ways that work for everyone involved.

Give toddlers to teens the tools to build resilience, curiosity, empathy, and calm

  • Expand your abilities as a conscious parent — have research-backed ways to nurture your child’s strong brain development
  • Gain effectiveness at managing the roughest moments — learn what you actually need to help your child calm big upsets AND learn from them in positive, lasting ways
  • Build skills that will empower your children for life — effectively teach your children the social, emotional, and self-management skills that will help them smoothly ride life’s many waves

Easy for you to learn and use!

  • Save yourself time — I give you all the critical info from The Yes Brain so you don’t have to read it yourself
  • Make the learning stick — Each week I guide you with specific exercises and experiments to build your real-life skills
  • Avoid overwhelm — At the end of the course, I answer participant’s key questions questions so you’re not left wondering what to do

What’s Included

“The Yes Brain” Learning Circle is designed to make it easy for you to learn and implement the skills and principles described in The Yes Brain. Your registration in the six-week-long program includes these features:


Weekly chapter reviews

Each week you’ll receive a detailed summary of the contents of the chapter in printable format (yours to keep and use with your family forever). You’re welcome to read the book yourself, yet this saves you precious reading time so you can focus on implementing what you learn.


Homework guides

In addition to the complete chapter reviews, you’ll receive specific homework to immediately begin incorporating the materials into family life. Without guidance, many parents just end up overwhelmed with more information (and more worries about what to do). I give you specific activities to put the chapter’s principles into action.

Question & Answer session

You get personal input from Shonnie. At the end of the program, each participant will be able to submit up to two questions for Shonnie to address on a live teleconference. The call recording will be yours to keep as well whether you attend the live call or not.

Build your knowledge and practice your skills. Starts March 30.
