The Issue

The Most Overlooked Skill?

Isn't it strange? We send our children through years of schooling, and yet no one teaches them how to manage their emotions?

They are left to "figure this out" on their own.

Unfortunately, not every child figures this out.

Children absorb how to respond to the world directly from their environment.

Sadly, not all lessons they pick up are helpful or healthy.

Without the right guidance, children often mimic what they see and hear, no matter if it's positive or negative.

As a result, they may adopt maladaptive behaviours as their go-to responses.

They act out in undesirable ways. Often, the only way they know how.

Ways like emotional outburst, inattention, anger, hyperactivity, anxiety, low confidence and many more.

This isn't a choice, but a default, due to a lack of alternatives to process complex emotions.

You see these in adults too, like angry fights over road rage. People seeking belonging in “gangs”. Adults struggling with alcohol to deal with stress.

These are all symptoms of emotional coping strategies that missed the mark, often rooted in childhood.

But what if, we could help them out early on?

a common thread

Emotional Resilience = Emotional Maturity

At MindfulBear, we've identified a common thread in children's challenging behaviours: a lack of emotional resilience.

Emotional resilience is the inner strength that enables your child to bounce back from setbacks and challenges.

Emotional resilience is the ability to navigate the ups and downs of life. Responding to stress in healthy ways. Facing challenges with confidence and ease.

An emotionally resilient child basically means an emotionally mature child.

  • Stress comes their way and instead of meltdowns, they act with calmness and control.
  • A distraction comes their way and instead of getting distracted, they are focus and concentrated on the current task at hand.
  • Time to say “good bye” for school and instead of separation anxiety, they run to their friends with confidence, forming healthy social bonds.

Isn’t this what emotional maturity looks like?

A Learnable Skill

At MindfulBear, we view challenging behaviours as not fixed traits but gaps where skills can be developed.

Our Self Regulation Program is designed to target these gaps.

We believe, and evidence supports, that emotional resilience is a teachable skill.

Drawing from over a decade of experience in child therapy, our flagship program has already helped thousands of children develop greater emotional maturity.

Rooted in our proven 4A methodology and in just 8 focused therapy sessions, it is the most efficient learning pathway towards emotional resilience.

What Others Say


Chance upon Mindful Bear, and that was a wise choice made. At the end of each session, we noticed the progression and changes in my child. It was such a blessing for us. My child looked forward to the session with her therapist. It was such a bittersweet feeling when she completed her last session.

Yue Ting



My daughter used to get panic attacks for months and after a few sessions, I saw a huge improvement for my daughter. My son is suffering from intense OCD, we tried several therapists but none of them were able to build a rapport with my son. Now, after just a few sessions we are already seeing significant improvement for our son.

Saima Jawad



Therapist is a truly compassionate and committed. Able to connect and form a trusting relationship with my child. His ability to see beyond spoken words and engage has also offered very insightful observations and support that have benefited my child greatly.

Sapphire Ong



My daughter always tells me that she shares many secrets with therapist which she does not share with us, thus clearly a very strong connection and safe environment was created for her. I have seen improvements in my daughter's bursts of anger after the sessions.
