How Your Words Can Encourage Your Child
This is the time of year when things get crazy — when our patience is tested. But, this is also a great time to show our kids that we support them.
In this video blog, I explain how T-Square is a way to manage the way we speak to our kids. It’s all about the language we use. The first time a friend and mentor introduced me to T-Square, he suggested I put my husband’s name on the left hand side. That’s how I learned to apply his teaching.
Couldn’t we all use a little less, “What were you thinking?” and a little more, “You’re a great…….”
It is worth your effort to encourage the behavior you want to see.
