Current Status Quo
Lots of families struggle to connect and communicate with each other because they lack the tools to consistently know how to do it or think they don't have the time.
There are an overwhelming number of books, websites, and podcasts to choose from when you’re looking for parenting advice; posters, print outs, and charts to go with thousands of parenting methods.
A physical, interactive tool that helps the whole family thrive and lead meaningful lives.
The landscape lacks a parenting approach that is simple in concept so it's easy to implement, encourages growth and development, and is universal enough to work for all sorts of families.
Why families need a system
Life is hard. Parenting is hard. This system helps you do family better.
They say it takes a village right? All members of a family need to work together to build and maintain healthy relationships. Choose Intentionally is a physical tool that uses an Intention Board with Intention Cards to guide thoughts, actions and attitudes of the whole family.
Think of it this way, in a classroom, teachers make sure their students are surrounded with visual and interactive supports to help them thrive, learn, and make connections. An Intention Board in your home acts the same way. It allows adults to feel confident in their parenting and it allows children to see what's important and valued to your family.
Our system is based upon 3 Foundational Pillars: Communication, Connection, and Empowerment.
When you establish better communication streams, deeper connections form and family members become empowered. Choose Intentionally focuses on these 3 pillars with 18 Core Intentions. These Intentions have been tested and proven to help families strengthen these pillars.
What is an Intention?
An intention is the determination to feel and act in a certain way.
When families choose to start their day saying an intention out loud, practice how to navigate the day with that intention in mind, and then circle back with each other at the end of the day, it creates a cycle of communication. That structured and consistent communication is how this system coaches parents how to teach kids to solve their own problems and run their own lives, building connections and strengthening empowerment along the way.
