The Challenge

Parents face many challenges.

A common challenge is adapting their parenting style to each of their unique children. This disconnect can create unnecessary tension, stress, and frustration across the child-caregiver relationship. It may even lead to parental burnout.

When parents, guardians, or caregivers understand that their children have unique learning and communication styles, they can more effectively raise them. Understanding their children’s unique needs is critical to developing a cooperative and harmonious family unit where every member can thrive. But how?

When each member of a household may learn and communicate in different ways, it can feel overwhelming to try and make sense of it all — especially with all the emotions involved between family members.

True Colors knows good parenting can be learned. We’re eager to help families and those who support them.

How True Colors Can Help

True Colors helps caregivers better understand themselves and each member of their household. We reveal why individuals behave and react the way they do, then highlight the unique differences and contributions every family member makes.

The True Parenting Training dives into practical strategies to parent children more effectively. We help caregivers know how to raise each child in a way that speaks to that child’s true personality while building the trust needed for healthy growth and development. We also teach how each child and family member influences the behaviors of one another in the home.

Our True Parenting solution fosters child development and harmonious homes by promoting shared experiences, increased self-awareness, a common language to discuss differences and elevated empathy for others.

Every parent, guardian, or caregiver — as well as those who work with children, parents, or family units in any capacity — will greatly benefit from understanding the principles of True Parenting.

Our Evidence-Based Approach

The True Colors proprietary methodology distills complex temperament theory into practical tools and actionable programs. We use colors — Orange, Gold, Green, and Blue — to differentiate the four primary personality types and illuminate how these types best interact with each other.

By helping individuals better understand themselves and others, our evidence-based approach reveals the “why” behind difficult family dynamics.

As a result, True Colors helps improve communication and trust with every child and family member within a household.
