There are lots of parenting blogs out there (hooray, because we all can learn so much from one another), and they are all as different as the parents who write them. As I embark on the journey of this blog, my intention is to share about communication skills that can help adults interact more positively with children, because unfortunately for us, children do not arrive with a neat little booklet of operating instructions in six languages. I will post stories of how I used (or failed to use) particular parenting skills in my own family as well as stories from the parent participants in my workshops, with their permission, of course. I am also excited to share my reflections about other resources that inspire me – books, articles, videos, etc.
By the time you’ve tried the tool in today’s next post, you won’t believe you ever lived without it.
I hope you enjoy reading and I welcome your comments!
