Great communication advice
Podcast interviewees and interviewer provide valuable communication advice including - key phrases to use in complimenting your child, responding to an upset child, fostering self-responsibility, teaching your child to empathize with others. This is a much appreciated resource!
It’s helpful to get support and advice on how to work with my son. Communication with a child does not come naturally. I find the cards helpful and now with podcast I can listen while driving. Keep podcasting because I need the help!
