Is your bright child struggling with big emotions or challenging behaviors?

Ease the challenges of resistance, avoidance, aggression, oppositional, or defiant behaviors in ways that work with the wiring of bright and quirky minds, in the Emotional Regulation & Challenging Behavior Roadmap, happening this month in the Bright & Quirky IdeaLab.


The Emotional Regulation & Challenging Behavior Roadmap is right for you if your bright child:

  • Escalates seemingly from 0 to 100 in anger and lashes out

  • Resists going with the flow or following through, pushing back when requests are made

  • Presents like a little lawyer, negotiating their case

  • Gets stressed about sensory input like lighting, tags and textures, or noise

  • Goes quiet or shuts into their “turtle shell” when things get overwhelming

  • Has parents walking on eggshells to avoid a meltdown

Why Parents Continue to Learn with Us:

“I am so grateful, it was meant to be that I found you guys that day!”

IdeaLab member Sarah shares, “Things have changed a lot…I was really thinking about where we were and how much we’ve learned as a family from the beginning of discovering [IdeaLab] until now, it’s pretty profound….I feel empowered.”

“Trust what Bright & Quirky is saying when they tell you what they can accomplish.”

IdeaLab member Dan shares, “Can it get better? Absolutely, unequivocally. Yes, and I’m witness to some of the parents who were just pulling their hair out and in tears, some of whom I've seen in community, in the Facebook group and in conversations much like this. Night and day difference.”

"[IdeaLab] changed everything!"

IdeaLab member Emon shares, "Before we started Bright & Quirky, I had no idea where my now 17-year-old was going to land. But now he is a senior and he is doing dual enrollment. He’s about to start Junior College… he’s ready. And we didn’t see that before.”

“I see my child very happy, his eyes are bright again.”

IdeaLab member Veronica shares, “We were able to lower his anxiety meds. I see that he is actually learning at school, not just surviving school. A treasure about Bright & Quirky is being able to have a community that you can relate to, it can be a very lonely path…we share a common language and understand each other and what we are going through.”
