Official Bio.

Dr. Joanette is the founder of Emotional Social Parenting™ with a neuroscience perspective.  She is an assistant professor of clinical medicine and has spent more than 30 years as an Emergency Medicine doctor.  For thirteen of those years, she worked in a large urban hospital as a pediatric ER doctor caring for kids experiencing medical and emotional trauma and crisis.  She had numerous opportunities to observe how the different parenting styles affect a child’s ability to tolerate difficult emotions.

Her work in the Pediatric ER inspired her to want to understand better the neuroscience of emotions, feelings, and the social development of kids.  This desire inspired her to delve deep into the neuroscience of our children’s developing brains and bodies.  This study led to the development of a neuroscience-based model for parenting and helping parents be cycle-breakers.  This method is Emotional Social Parenting™ or ESP.

She is a grandmother of five grandchildren, a mother of four children, and the international best-selling author of the Giggles in my Heart children’s book series about big emotions and feelings.
