HI, I’M TENILLE BENTLEY.
I’m the founder of The Emotional Literacy & Mindfulness Academy for Kids, Author and Award Winning
Community Leader with a passion for supporting our next generation with the tools I wish I could have had access to as a child.
As a child I suffered severe anxiety and emotional traumas as well as bullying which left me feeling isolated, and unable to understand why I was feeling the way I did.However, emotional literacy wasn’t in the narrative in my generation. Today, we have evolved, science has caught up and we now understand the important role emotional intelligence plays in our every day lives.
I didn’t know how to express my emotions, or why I felt so sad as a young child, I couldn’t socialise properly and found myself carrying a lot of self hatred, blaming myself for trauma’s that occurred around me that were out of my control which resulted in my early adult years making decisions in life that weren’t healthy because I couldn’t cope with the huge amount of emotions that I couldn’t understand.
Like you, I have seen so many parents have anxiety and stress over how to support the emotional growth of our children in the hope that we can equip them with the tools to make better decisions in life and healthy ones.
I have seen so many exhausted parents stress over what they can do to manage the big emotions that their children face, and not feeling like they have tools to help support and create a balanced home life.
It wasn’t until I discovered these powerful tools that helped me as an adult and I saw that they also supported children. And I finally understood how hard it is for kids of today to find peace, calm and understand their emotions and more importantly what to do with them. So this is where the emotional intelligence and mindfulness classes for kids was born.
What I learned and what I teach in these emotional intelligence and mindfulness classes for kids completely transformed my perspective and the families I’ve helped, and Im sure it will for you too!

Pretty much all parents can relate to watching your child’s emotions go from zero to a hundred within seconds. But no one told you what to do with this or that there could be a better way.
You never thought you would spend days feeling guilty because you ended up screaming at your kids or the household would feel a bit out of control. Parenting during these challenging times can feel isolating.
You might feel like you have tried everything, read all the books and watched all the videos.

Ysaa is like her dad. She has a really high IQ. Her father got into law school but his parents couldn’t afford his education. So instead of being a lawyer he is now a security guard working 12 hours a day 7 days a week for $200AUD a month.
We believe with our community support we can change this story for Ysaa, her sister KD and her family, with education.
