INTRODUCING CalmkinsEnneagram Type Animals – Best parenting tool!

  • If you want to get parenthood off to the best start, or if you want to make a change but don’t know how, Calmkins™ Enneagram Type Animals and Calmkins Stories help you understand and comfort your child.

  • Given the stress children and parents are experiencing, parents are searching for solutions to comfort their children and build their self-worth.

  • As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Linda Olson works with parents everyday, who (like she did) often worry that their kids won’t turn out the way they want to. And since we don’t get to choose our kids personalities, we often try to force them into one.
