The Engaging Child: Raising Children to Speak, Write, and Have Relationship Skills Beyond Technology
Email. Texting. Social media.
These tools are changing the way an entire generation interacts. These tools are also encouraging faceless, fragmented communication and shallow relationships. And that’s a far cry from what our global economy is really looking for. Of course, technology is here to stay but Maribeth Kuzmeski says it doesn’t have to shape how your kids experience their most critical relationships.
Maribeth joined me on Amy’s Table to discuss her book The Engaging Child: Raising Children to Speak, Write, and Have Relationship Skills Beyond Technology and how to help kids to:
Develop the empathy they’ll need to become true connectors
Master the lost art of curious listening
Cultivate critical leadership and problem-solving skills
Write clearly and persuasively
Speak to individuals and groups with confidence
Use day-to-day events—from ordering meals to making appointments to selling school fundraising items—as opportunities to practice connecting
