Our mission is to provide all children with a sense of success in handling whatever problems come their way. We know that in life, success is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them.
We help kids (and the big people who care about them) deal with behavioral and emotional issues before they get larger than life. Our signature products help to build social-emotional skills in children, which we know is the best predictor of happiness in life. Kidlutions™ brings a new dimension to parenting, teaching and caregiving.
Each Kidlutions™ product has been developed and tested by a mom who is also an award-winning child and family therapist. Wendy Young, LMSW, BCD, founder of Kidlutions™, graduated Summa Cum Laude from Michigan State University's Clinical Social Work program and is a Board Certified Diplomate. Her children are ages 13, 16 and 18. She is the Behavioral Health Expert for Momtourage.com, which is affiliated with NBC Studios. She maintains a private practice in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and consults to various programs.
