The medical model trains us to think in terms of our kids' deficits. What really leads to success? Read on...

When our bright and quirky kids start to have challenges, most of us seek help from a doctor or counselor. Our child may get a diagnosis and a treatment plan. While that can be helpful, it gears us to think in terms of our kids' deficits. How do kids feel in this "find it, fix it" scenario? They often feel bad or broken, and needing to be fixed.

Bright & Quirky's strength-based approach is different. Think of your child's path like a sailboat. It's our job to help our kids put wind in their sails. How do we do that? By helping them to identify their strengths and interests and doing more of what they enjoy and what they're good at. We balance the boat with solid connection at home. Then, we lift the anchor by putting some specific supports in place to ease the struggle, so our kids can soar! You can learn more about Bright & Quirky's proven approach in the Gold upgrade option below.

Bright & Quirky’s framework works for families like Marla’s:

Headshots-Testimonials-MarlaLG

"Honestly Debbie, I would have paid whatever you charged me to be part of Bright & Quirky. I have three degrees, and I was Harvard undergrad, but I was at the point where I was like, "I need a lifeline." My 7 year old was diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety, depression, and rule outs of autism and a math disorder. He would say, “I’m just bad, Mommy, I’m just bad.” And it's like if I don't step in, this could go really badly for him, for his whole life. In the position that I was in, I was so desperate for help and information and support. Bright & Quirky gave me a toolkit and a safety net. I'm not alone, I'm not going on this journey against normal things by myself...I felt like my friends didn't get it, my in-laws didn't get it, my husband didn't get it. You feel like an island. Right? I'm just constantly inhaling information and processing it and trying to figure out like, "Okay, what's the next step? With Bright and Quirky I feel like I got a VIP pass backstage."

It’s also worked for families like Darlene’s:

Headshots-Testimonials-DarlenLG

“What I found to be true with Bright & Quirky, all of the resources are legit. They are the best in the world. Before finding BQ, I was doing all the research on my own. I've been doing that for years, and when you have to put yourself and your child through all of the bad people that you go through, you kind of just get to the point where you feel like there's nobody out there that can help you. And if you're working and you're not a reader and you don't have time to do all that research, and that's not your thing, you'd quit. I wanted to quit. Now, I'm so excited for [my son.] We’re thriving as a family. We're able to have deep, meaningful conversations without shut down. And we're well emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually. My husband, son and I feel confident, like we're on the right track. It’s great having the support to be able to do something different than what the world says is normal.”

Why Parents Continue to Learn with Us:

"My child is so much happier. The household is so much happier. The IdeaLab has been invaluable."

IdeaLab member Tereza shares, "I became a member of the IdeaLab and suddenly all kinds of light bulb moments happened...Being a member, I got the confidence to pull my child from public school. We found another school that was a goldmine."

"The IdeaLab helped us cut to the chase. I now know what I'm talking about in IEP meetings."

IdeaLab member Robin said, "I spent maybe a dozen years trying to figure out what to do with my kid. All we heard about were the challenges. What I realized since joining the IdeaLab is 'gifted' is a big thing. I wonder how life would be if I knew all this stuff 7-8 years ago. I've learned so much and my attitude has changed."

"I feel so lucky to be a part of this amazing group. I turned 180 degrees as a parent through the last year."

Marcy, one of the founding members of the IdeaLab, says, "People get it and they're there for me.  I want to give back more than I'm getting."

"This community has been a game changer for us!"

Tori, an IdeaLab member of almost a year, shared, "The monthly Q&A's and expert interviews are priceless and I loved the (quick-start) course! Having a different lens has really helped."
