Future Proofing Your Kids: The New Rules of Parenting
April 3, 2014
Hosted by Chris Efessiou
What is your goal as a parent? All parents want the very best for their children on an emotional, educational and social level. Above all, parents want to raise self-sufficient adults. It is important to recognize that parenting has changed dramatically in recent years, and so has the need to prepare your child for success in a world of unprecedented change. Self -awareness is more important than building self-esteem. Teaching kids to be safe online is as important as teaching kids to be safe in the real world. Developing character strengths is more important to kids' success than developing cognitive skills. My guest, Michael Grose, a recognized leader in parenting education, will discuss the reason for these changes, the need to raise kids with true “Grit”, the secrets to communicating with teens, and the importance of matching your parenting to your child’s developmental needs. Join us on Thursday, April 3rd at 3 PM PT, 6 PM ET
