What is WellRoo?

WellRoo offers online self-guided parenting strategies for common behavior concerns in minutes a day. 100% of our app-based modules are written by child psychologists for busy parents looking for information from trustworthy sources. Designed for parents on the go (most lessons take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete) so you can start learning and using strategies right away. It is like a parenting book, but interactive and available on-the-go.

Here are a few of the topics that we share:

  • Effective Praise
  • Prompts that work
  • Strengthening parent/child relationships
  • Planning for setbacks
  • Information and examples for families of kids with ADHD
  • Topic-specific examples (like screen time transitions and making AM and PM routines easier)

Who is WellRoo for?

WellRoo is designed for parents of kids between 4-10 years old who are looking for an overview of science-backed strategies from trustworthy sources that can help with common behavior concerns.

Is WellRoo therapy?

WellRoo is not therapy. Although our programs are created by child psychologists, WellRoo offers self-paced programs for families looking to learn recommended parenting strategies in a convenient package. Think of it like a book that has highlighted itself.

WellRoo has teamed up with EdApp, an award-winning learning portal, to give you access to our programs on demand via mobile app or desktop website.
