Here’s how I can help you…

By focusing on academic research by experts and experience based solutions, I will help you reconnect with your children and students so we can recognize and honor their “wild” nature.

By adapting our understanding and environments, we can create a loving, caring and uplifting relationship in which emotional needs are fulfilled continuously.

By first recognizing that our children have a dominant nature, guiding system and love languages, we can adapt our parenting and teaching to understand, encourage and inspire by having clarity and being present in all situations.

“Your children need your presence more than your presents.” – Jesse Jackson

I will break the solutions down for you, so you can implement them today. I have a willingness to help you, so you can live a more uplifting and joyous life, free from confusion and disconnect with your children.

I believe, if you want your children and students to succeed in the fast paced society and overcrowded classes that are currently in place, you must master influencing and principle based techniques.

This Is What Some Of Our Parents Had To Say About Aaron Pickup And The Student Serenity Project…

“My daughter had come from a school where she was not integrated with her peers and constantly picked on and teased. She was far behind her peers in her learning and frequently stated she was dumb and stupid.

Aaron spent time with me to go over and understand my daughter’s learning, social and emotional needs. He set a plan in place and I started to see changes in my daughter. She started to enjoy school. She was eager to go every morning and let Mr. Pickup know what she had learned. Aaron instinctively got her on a level that no other teacher had. In altering her education plan and school days of constant positive reinforcement Sarah blossomed. Her language changed as well. Words like dumb, stupid and ugly changed to I can do it, I am smart, I just did my best.

He gave her so much and she has kept it all. She is confident and able to express herself. She is able to work independently and feel good about the work she has done. Her language about herself and others is positive, caring and loving.

In summary, Aaron’s language of love has become my daughter’s language and mine as well. What a beautiful soul fulfilling language it is!”

– Natalie D.

“We can unreservedly recommend that every school and parent get involved in Mr. Pickup’s Student Serenity Project. We have every confidence that it will create amazing children, parents and educators. The Serenity Project is a valuable asset for any organization.

Mr. Pickup’s class continuously stood out as a very capable group of students who were self assured and also began learning how to be accountable for their decisions and actions at such a young age. This was and is due to having such a positive and engaged teacher.

Our daughter began believing in herself, her abilities both personally and academically. She began dealing with people on a better level. She learned how to explain her frustrations rather than lashing out or raising her voice.”

– Karen and Keith Harron
