How To Help Your Child’s Emotional Development – WeParent Review

As a parent my main goal is life is to keep my children happy and healthy.  Good health to me means both positive physical and mental health for my children.  Mental health is especially important as it’s hard to have good physical health without first having good mental health.  I’ve read several books since the birth of my first child to better my understanding of child of children so was very happy to asked to review a new online service from

WeParent Review

WeParent is an online service designed to empower parents in aiding their child’s emotional development.  We all know parenting can be extremely frustrating at times, I have lost count of the number of times I have second guessed myself on what I should do for my child.  WeParent provides proven strategies known to work providing you with simple and fun way to teach your children all about their emotional development.  Best of all this is all done from the comfort of your own home.  The WeParent project is backed by Child Psychologists and our approach is based on over 40 years of clinical experience in their team.

Why is aiding your child’s emotional development important?

Between the ages and 4 and 8 is a crucial time for children’s emotional and social development. Many will be starting school and taking big steps to become more independent in life. This point in life is one of the best times to try to help your child develop many life skills as they become more self-regulated.

On a personal level as a child up I struggled with my sense of self-worth.  Because of this I suffered with feelings of what I now identify as depression from as early as Primary school.  I would hate for any of my children to experience this and have been actively seeking methods to ensure my children have a strong sense of self since I became a parent.

What can WeParent help with

WeParent is written by psychologists with a huge array of categories and modules available to aid your child’s development.  All of the content is designed for all children and is based on the psychological principles of early intervention, i.e. teaching children the skills to cope positively with life and prevent them suffering from mental health concerns later in life.  There is a really good range of categories which are further then split into modules.  The current categories on the website are;

  • Emotions
  • Friendship & Social Skills
  • Independence
  • Positive Sense of Self
  • Sibling Rivalry

How It Works

WeParent Review

Simply go to the category you wish to help your child with, pick a module and then follow the instructions.  You can either look for a solution to an issue you are trying to solve with your child or even if you don’t have any current issues read through some of the modules to get your self ahead in this crazy world of parenting!

My Experience With WeParent

I found the website very bright and cheerful as well as well laid out and easy to navigate.  The terminology used didn’t completely go over my head yet and what I consider to be fairly complex physiological processes have been broken down into simple easy to follow exercises.  I really liked the range of areas for development that the website covers.

WeParent Review

As mentioned before my main goal currently is to teach my children a strong sense of self.  My eldest child Chase lives with a severe form of disability, I see a positive sense of self a key point in his life to making sure he is happy.  Likewise having a disabled sibling provides many emotional difficulties and I feel this is important skill for all of my children.

The Positive sense of self is split into 4 modules

  • Developing Empathy
  • Learning Perspectives
  • Positive Sense Of Self
  • Consideration

Our Learning Journey

The modules I’ve looked at are a mix of quick and easy bite size chunks of information, observation of my child as well as fun activities.  The one thing I would like to see built-in to the current website is a control panel. A place to store the modules I was working on and a place to save notes would be super handy.  In the meantime I have a dedicated notebook that I am going to use for this.

I’m going to make my way through the sense of self modules with my children, likely Brooke my 4-year-old to begin with.  I shall be reporting back in a few months once we have all of our strategies in place to let you know how we have all grown as a result as putting these key techniques into place.

    Friendships and social skills, for sure…. my son will chat away to adults no problem, but when other kids approach him he just sort of looks at them like he’s not sure what they are and then moves away. I don’t think he means to be unfriendly coz he’s very affectionate and gentle, he just doesn’t seem to have relationships with his peers yet….

    Kids eh!
    Thanks for this post, I’d never heard of WeParent before x

    My son would benefit from friendship and social skills. He is quite shy and therefore misses out a lot in life.
