We are learning more and more about the importance of positive relationships for our health and life expectancy, and notably the depth of connection within such relationships. Our family relationships are often at the heart of this. How can we teach our children to grow up with kindness & compassion? How can we understand our emotions better and recognise the emotions of our loved ones with more clarity? How can we create an environment for happy children?
Meaningful paths can help new parents and offers parenting advice for an entire range of family wellbeing, from the upbringing of healthy and happy children all the way to teenage well-being. In addition to our fun courses for the upbringing of healthy and happy children, we also have a wide range of courses and a membership for parents happiness and personal growth.

Kaitlyn Kelly is the 18 year-old co-founder of PositiviTeens® Workshops. As a young teen in 2018, Kaitlyn was personally impacted by a high school shooting in her childhood hometown of Parkland, FL. That day, she witnessed, through live social media feeds, the unfolding violence upon friends and former neighbors while she sat in her school one town over. The secondary trauma of bearing witness to violence via unfiltered social media, as well as the developmental cost of violence depicted in consumer-entertainment platforms, inspired her to take action.
Addressing the psychosocial impact of violence, depersonalization, bullying and negativity that permeates social media on today’s youth was in response to the Parkland tragedy. Kaitlyn and her mother, a Clinical Psychologist (Dr. Sherry Skyler Kelly), developed an empowering program of Positive Psychology and Cognitive-Behavioral strategies to not only support and educate students, teachers and parents, but to also provide evidence based interventions to promote greater emotional resilience. The effects of digital technology on teen culture, communication, and relationships is one of the timely topics covered in the PositiviTeens® workshops and webinars. Kaitlyn’s unique perspective as a teen, and as a student of Positive Psychology, provides a foundation upon which enacting change for growth is relevant to young audiences. Kaitlyn has co-presented PositiviTeens® webinars to audiences in the USA and China. Learn more at PositiviTeens®.com
