Create a Strong Family Culture Rooted in Positive Values

A letter from the Founder...

Hello Fellow Parent,

My name is Dr. Michael Redivo.

As a child, adolescent, and family psychologist for over 20 years, I have had the privilege of personally helping thousands of parents and kids cultivate healthy and solid families fueled by solid values, trust and positive intimacy.

I’ve also served as the executive director of a school for children with behavioral and emotional problems. Our work focused on helping students grow up academically and behaviorally. The Values Grounded Framework was adopted by various school districts due to its focus on cultivating and reinforcing a healthy classroom and school culture where students felt safe to learn, grow, and thrive.

My most gratifying experience in life has been raising healthy, joyful and values grounded kids.

The secret?

A framework that helps parents create a strong family culture guided by a positive vision and anchored with solid values. 

What I’ve found through my research and experience is that most parents do not establish a clear vision for their family. They haven’t been given the tools to unpack the positive values they’d like their household to embody…and in the process, they lose sight of their purpose as a parent.

This means a family that can easily get off track or not know what the “right” steps are.

I invite you to join the movement for Values Grounded Parenting, where parents from all walks of life share a single goal; to raise happy, hearty, healthy and well-adjusted children while creating a family environment that is refreshing, calming and extremely positive.
