High Functioning Family
Co-Founders: Margarita Daskalakis & Juarline Stavrinos
High Functioning Family helps families and educators gain the awareness and tools needed to create calm and peace in their homes and classrooms by stopping the yelling and the power struggles. Our clients have decreased frustration and increased patience. With structured routines that work, better communication and relationships with their children, our clients see an overall increase in happiness. They learn to effectively recognize the difference between a meltdown and a tantrum and use the strategies to help reduce and sometimes eliminate unwanted behaviors. They learn to distinguish between emotional struggles and inappropriate behavior. Parents and educators learn how to effectively set clear rules that can easily be followed. They stop punishing and start disciplining, leaving their children with long lasting positive effects. We help our clients to stop being stuck in a pattern that is not working. They learn how to teach their child emotional awareness and self-soothing strategies. We teach families and educator’s effective listening skills, how to discipline effectively and how to respond to a situation rather than react. With a mindset change and realization that what you focus on grows, parents and educators have a positive shift in all areas of their lives.
