The first three podcasts have given you an overview of the four major tasks that parents must accomplish to give thier choldren the best possible chance for success in life. To review those tasks are: Connecting, Empowering, Structuring, and Accountability.
In this podcast Jeff and I begin to go into detail about how you accomplish those tasks. We start by talking about the importance of connecting with your children. Some of the things you will learn in this podcast are:
What it means to be “attuned” with your child.
Why correcting behavior is easier when you have a connection with your child.
Where connection with your child starts
What some of the barriers that get in the way of connecting with you kids are.
Thank you for listening to the podcast. If you have any questions for Mat or Jeff please comment on this blog post.
P.S. The book that I referred to in the podcast about the importance of eating meals together is called Too Much Of A Good Thing by Dan Kindlon. It is a phenomenal read. If you are interested you can get it here.
