The neuroscience in early behaviour  “Recent advances in neuroscience are highlighting connections between emotion, social functioning and decision making that have the potential to revolutionise our understanding of the role of affect in education. In particular, the neurobiological evidence suggests that the aspects of cognition that we recruit most heavily in schools, namely learning, attention, memory, decision making and social functioning, are both profoundly affected by and subsumed within the processes of emotion”.

Really impressed by the program and how much my child has learnt!! As working parents, life gets so busy – the program reminds us how to reconnect in such a fun and gentle way. The kids had a blast and looked forward to each session. Highly recommended, it helped support our child with managing big emotions. Really loved the book too – thanks Tenille we will definitely return for a second round 😀

Claudette, Mother
I am thrilled with the way Ryder has taken to the ELMA class. We have been listening to the Children’s Guided Frequency Meditation for a while and he asked for it after the first session for bedtime. The soulful singing from Tenille at the end of the class really inspired us.
Ryder interviewed all members of our house for there feeeloooo bubble during the week and wrote and drew it into one page and stuck it on our wall.
That’s after drawing his own energy ball beaming. I can’t wait for the next class. It has ripple effects on his little brother and father too, and gives us a basis to open greater communication and awareness about our emotions xxx
Amanda, Mother
Stop struggling, parents. Here is the key to relaxing into your family and into your parenting. Tenille Bentley is absolutely passionate about raising a happy and mindful generation. I want to share Tenille’s work to everyone I know who is a parent, a grandparent, a child, a grown-up child . . . everyone. It’s not only a primer for the kind of family life we all long for, it’s also a guide to being human—to living with more ease, more love, more joy.
Lili, Mother
I highly recommend the academy as it engages the children in a wonderful range of fun and easy to learn and understand activities that connect them back to themselves, helps them how to understand their feelings and the feelings of others that can get the whole family involved that continue on past the duration of the course. Uplifting, centred, happy, self-aware children and a beautiful reminder of how precious, priceless and needed real connection is in such a digital based world.
