Famous at Home (linked) Create a Family of Connection, Celebration, and Purpose. At Famous at Home, we don’t believe you have to leave your profession to serve your family well. Quite the contrary, if it’s your purpose. Instead, since your biggest fans already live under your roof, we believe it’s about changing who we prioritize being famous for and putting a plan in place doing just that.

Your Family Purpose series (linked) Our online family series is a step-by-step plan to help you create a family of connection, celebration, and purpose.

Kids EQ Academy (linked) On-demand courses to help your child manage big feelings in a little body. Each course in KidsEQAcademy teaches your kids the life skills they need to develop emotional intelligence.

Child Mind Institute (linked) The Child Mind Institute is an independent, national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. Our teams work every day to deliver the highest standards of care, advance the science of the developing brain and empower parents, professionals, and policymakers to support children when and where they need it most.

Resources for families (linked)  When a child is struggling, the whole family is affected. At the Child Mind Institute, we want to help you make good decisions for your kids and navigate the challenges of parenting. We explore the concerns and challenges we hear about most from parents and provide expert guidance on how to respond in the most effective way. And if you have a child who needs support, we offer resources that can help you get the best care for that child and the best outcome for your family.

Resources for educators (linked) The Child Mind Institute is committed to helping educators identify and respond effectively to children with signs of a mental health or learning disorder. And since behavioral issues can disrupt learning for the whole class, we offer actionable strategies that have been shown to help kids behave successfully — making the learning environment better for everyone.
