Child Psychology; Neuroscience and Development for Parents

Discover how an understanding of child & developmental psychology can make you an even better parent.

Created by Ermin Dedic - All Things Data.


Students: 927, Price: $99.99

Students: 927, Price:  Paid


It is not possible to have a true understanding of children and their behavior without understanding child development and neuroscience. Development is simply the understanding that we go through different stages after we are born, and each of these stages influences how we perceive the world, learn, encode things in memory, and so forth. Neuroscience focuses on studying the brain from the functional organization of cerebral systems and understanding neuro-chemical processes in the brain. I discuss memory, perception, learning, the prefrontal cortex, dopamine, and other neuroscience concepts that helps you understand why children behave the way they do.

The goal of the course is to cover the most important concepts, themes, and theories in psychology, and show how an understanding of neuroscience and the understanding of development, informs us about behavior. The course is useful for anyone interested in child development and how neuroscience influences behavior but also for parents who want to have a better relationship with their child, as understanding the factors that influence behavior is helpful as a starting point for conversation and relationship building.

Each lesson leaves you with an overall message, tips, advice, so you can utilize the concept/theme/theory covered. You will appreciate how culture, hormones, developmental stage, parenting styles, reinforcement, and other factors impact your child's development and behavior.

I have also added a Child Development Cheatsheet that addresses important cognitive and psycho-social milestones by age range. It gives you a good idea of what to focus on and why to focus on specific areas.


Note: If you have any doubts about your mental health, please see a psychiatrist or psychologist in your local community where you can get an in-depth assessment. This course is meant for informational purposes only. Do not attempt to diagnose yourself or your child based on the content here.

Ermin is a former Graduate student in Educational Psychology. Educational Psychology is a clinical specialization in psychology that attempts to apply psychological principles to answer education related questions (ie does my child have a learning disability?) and addresses mental health concerns in an educational context. (ie addressing anxiety, when it originates/impacts school). Ermin also has some clinical experience, and has taken a combined 50+ psychology courses at the undergrad and graduate level in Psychology.

Meet Your Trainer:

Sebastian has been transforming lives of young people, their parents and teachers for over 20 years now.

As a teenager he struggled with lack of confidence, low self-esteem and anxiety. All these was happening despite the fact, that Sebastian lived with loving parents and siblings, and was surrounded by relatives and family friends, who were very supportive. However, no one spotted the signs of his deep discomfort and violent emotions which were tearing him apart. “I decided to hide my true feelings as I was ashamed of them. I thought I was not predestined to happiness.”

Teenage time struggle had a huge impact on Sebastian’s adult life. He re-thought how parents, teachers and teenagers could be supported to build mutual understand, communicate better with each other and transform their lives for the better. Sebastian believes that everyone deserves and has the right to be happy and live in harmony with self and others.

Sebastian has been methodically gaining experience and qualifications in the vast area of Education (qualified teacher in two European countries), Psychology (Counselling course). Training (Train the Trainer Certificate) and Life Coaching.

His most recent initiatives include Harmonious Parenting of Teens©, Top Professionals Access© and the book “…And Carry On”.

Harmonious Parenting of Teens© aim to transform relationships between parents and their teenage children.

Top Professionals Access© was funded to support educational settings by providing them with highly qualified and experienced experts who make changes in all areas of education.

“…And Carry On” is the first book published by Sebastian. This is a set of seven stories about seven extraordinary children, who found happiness despite difficulties, who some would call ‘unbearable burden’.

                                                Parenting Skill (10 Positive Things to Say to Your Children)

The course is lecture-based on power point slides, but questions and discussion are encouraged. I recommend that you complete assigned textbook readings prior to lecture. For further in-depth discussion of content, I recommend attending weekly Supplemental Instruction or Tutoring sessions. Many students have found it beneficial to read through the assigned reading both prior to and following lecture. Weekly assignments will also be assigned to help gauge your understanding of class content. Every effort will be made to keep to the schedule presented in the syllabus, although unforeseen emergencies may require changes. Any such changes will be announced and will be effective at the earliest reasonable opportunity.

I would like tell you something more about the course

1. It is prepared on power point slides

2. It is just like a text book which is shifted on slides

3. And the instructor made the voice over in Asian accents

4. Short course having textbook like contents

You have to dig out the points from each video and run each video by stopping again and again. You have to focus on slides and focus on the voice over. You will read the each slide and collect the main points that you want to learn.

Why I have described the above points? Because I don't want to sell the things that are not matched with your interest. Everything should be clear before enrolling in this course.


It is not like that I have wasted the time anywhere in the course. I am giving you the genuine course contents presentations. So I promise you that you will not waste your money. Also Udemy has 30 day money back guarantee and if you feel that the course is not like that you were looking, then you can take your money back.

Parenting Science for Busy Parents

Straight to the point parenting solutions combining findings from research in neuroscience and child's psychology

Created by Laura Croitoru - neurosmindfulness and parenting coach


Students: 1, Price: $24.99

Students: 1, Price:  Paid

This learning program was designed with busy parents in mind by a certified Neuroscience, Mindfulness, and Parenting Coach and contains talking scripts for real-life situations. The bite-sized videos are sharing science-based advice and information, designed to tackle most parenting challenges (negative behaviors, refusals, tantrums, and lack of cooperation) and create a happy family life.

"Parenting science for Busy Parents" is a solution-based program, easy and simple that will transform your parenting life, by getting you from drama, power struggles, yelling, punishments, and unacceptable behaviors to cooperation, listening with respect, and a strong and connected parent-child relationship. You will learn science-based tools, easy-to-understand parenting information, and simple strategies to use on a daily basis that will lay down the foundation for a new life with kids and which will help you become the best parent you can be.   

The course covers 7 different modules: 

  1. Solutions for preventing negative behaviors;

  2. Solutions for managing negative behaviors;

  3. Solutions for preventing and managing tantrums;

  4. Solutions for challenging behaviors;

  5. Solutions for getting kids cooperation;

  6. Solutions for dealing with kids refusals;

  7. Solutions for using discipline.

In our days, you can find parenting advice everywhere. But which ones you should trust or listen to? Many parents rely on the experience of previous generations and embrace traditional parenting approaches. There is a general perception that once you have kids, parenting will come naturally, without having to learn and build any new skills. However, in our days, psychologists and scientists know more about child and brain development than ever before.

Think about this: before having kids we don’t learn anything about parenting and after we have kids we don’t have the time to learn anything about parenting. How ironic is that? Basically, we become responsible for the physical and emotional wellbeing of a human being and we sign up for arguably the most difficult, yet most rewarding job of our lives - with little or no prior training but with the best intentions in the world. Most parents don’t have the time to invest dozens of hours in learning about parenting. So I decided to do something about this, to support ALL BUSY PARENTS OUTHERE who want straight-to-the-point solutions to deal with their parenting challenges.

Parenting is not about a one-size-fits-all approach or about knowing all the answers. It’s about being open to learning. So, the goal of this course is to support you to upgrade your parenting skills so you can EDUCATE, MOTIVATE, INSPIRE and support your children bloom into the best version of themselves.
