Who this IS



There are so many things I love about Cards for Connection. They’re so practical. You can use them as a good conversation starter and they are age specific. They help me build a closer connection with my families!

Build A Closer Connection

I use them with my teenagers who are not doing well, not connecting with their families, and not doing good in school. I now feel like I have ways to talk to them. To bring them out a little bit more. I love the tools of reflection with the babies and that’s an easy and fun win for families that will start that talk early on. 

 I love the tools

Dr. Amy’s prior participants in her Cards for Connection training have referred to this as “the most important medicine” and I think that burnout really comes from not finding meaning in our work. This is the antidote for that. This is making our work far more meaningful and our families are loving when we do the interventions.

This is the antidote
