This program features an interview with guest Brandon Condie about his new e-book, Eight Principles of Effective Parenting. Brandon is Licensed Professional Counselor and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. His warmth, easy manner and practical ideas have made him a popular presenter in a variety of venues.
According to Brandon, parents in today’s world deal with a variety of challenges in raising their children. Some challenges are familiar and have occurred for generations. But many challenges are new, responses to today’s culture and lifestyle, and require new skills and resources. The traditions passed down by parents and grandparents tend to leave today’s parents inadequately prepared for dealing with a world full of drugs, gangs, media violence, technology, and a very high speed lifestyle.
Brandon will be talking about 8 basic strategies that parents can implement to improve their relationship with their children, and to empower to their children to be successful.
Some of these strategies include
Creating effective structure within the home
Giving children the gift of choice
Finding the strengths of each child and enhance the development of those strengths
Showing and expressing love in the home; developing open communication
Customizing parenting to each child
Simplifying family life
Helping children to develop self-esteem
These basic yet essential principle can make the difference in a child’s healthy development and continuing success from childhood into adulthood. Join Brandon and I for an hour of fun, creative and useful suggestions for strengthening families ties and raising well-adjusted, happy and capable children.
