Relationship between parents and children plays a key role in the child’s overall development. It allows children to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually. The more parents or guardians are attached to the children, the more creativity and development they adopt in their personalities. Home is the first school of every child and parents are the first teachers who create the mentality of the children both in good or bad ways, depending on the behavior of their parents. For instance, if parents do not develop an ideal bond with their child, the child might not learn crucial things in their lives that may help them in the future. The early years of every child are important in all aspects. Therefore, parents, guardians, or caretakers of each child must be well-prepared for how they should teach, behave, live, and create a relationship with their children. Although this stuff is not rocket science, there is a lack of awareness among parents. So, they need to educate themselves to become a better parent and create an ideal relationship with their child. When it comes to human development or creating a parents-children relationship, a couple comes to mind. This couple, known as Luvmour & Luvmour, are educators, human development specialists, authors, consultants, and public speakers. They provide professional consultancy to parents, caretakers, teachers, and guardians about maintaining a productive bond with their children.
Luvmour & Luvmour are basically husband-wife duos, who have been working together since the early 1980s. The husband, Ba Luvmour, and wife, Josette Luvmour, have created a human development program, known as Natural Learning Relationships (NLR). Their expertise in relationship-based education and consciousness studies allows them to educate the optimal well-being of both adults and children. Ba & Josette Luvmour met each other in 1979 and together they studied and explored consciousness studies. Both achieved their education in order to gain expertise and later served their contributions to teach parents and caretakers.

In 2006, she earned her Master of Arts degree in Human Development from Fielding Graduate University.
