Episode 42: The Art of Talking with Children

Mindful Parenting

In this episode, Shannon and Ashley are talking with Harvard Lecturer, Speech Pathologist and mother of two, Dr. Rebecca Rolland.

Dr. Rebecca is the author of the book, The Art of Talking with Children: The Simple Keys to Nurturing Kindness, Creativity and Confidence in Kids.

Science has shown that the best way to help our kids become independent, kind and happy is by talking with them, yet we often find ourselves distracted, exhausted, or at a loss as to how to have meaningful conversations.

Dr. Rebecca offers tools for communication to help you engage in more “rich talk” and shares ways to promote your children’s empathy, curiosity and ability to embrace challenges, and helps you feel more confident as parent.

Enjoy the show!
