If you’re a parent and missed yesterday’s edition of our radio program, I encourage you to grab your iPad to take some notes and get near a radio for part two today (then go back and catch part one online or via our free phone app).
Conversations about parenting often lean toward the philosophical, the “why” of raising children.
We’re talking with Todd Cartmell, a child psychologist, about his book 8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids.
I’ll admit I can be a little skeptical when authors offer me “simple” ways of doing anything, especially parenting. I have two teenage boys. I know how complex raising a child to know how to make good choices can be.
But Todd’s ideas really are simple and practical. He’ll share how to get your teens to talk to you and to give you more than one-word answers. He’ll help you teach your child to behave outwardly while they’re developing inner character. And he’ll show you how to do all of this and more without resorting to anger or raising your expectations too high for your children.
