Parent Hacks! – A Three Principles Guide to Understanding Kids

LEARNING TO UNDERSTAND CHILDREN’S WELLBEING 9:33 -cut right to the wrap-up A NEW WAY OF SEEING YOUR/OUR KIDS Understanding adolescent development is now much simpler. With a new way to see their behavior and way of thinking. Steven Crouch shows us how simple it is to misinterpret the actions and beliefs of our children. THE THREE PRINCIPLES Using the three principles as a point of view allows parents to have a more likely idea of the mindset of their children. So often we do not consider the developing brains of our kids when we try to figure out what and why they do what they do. All too often it is not a mental illness or a mental health condition they suffer with but rather an improper use of good listening skills or understanding body language. By simply learning to pay attention, use good eye contact, and exercise effective listening we can improve our skills as parents and increase our types of listening in our daily life. COUNSELING IS NOT ALWAYS THE ANSWER Children’s mental health is so important, we often think we need to rely on others who we believe are more qualified than we are. But healthy children are not a result of the efforts of others as much as it is their innate state. We often do not need to look for a mental disorder so we can diagnose them, but rather slow down our lives in order to see and hear them more clearly. PARENT HIMSELF Steven Crouch is the parent of three healthy children. He has experienced many of the tumultuous ups and downs that come with raising children. He utilizes his education as well as real-world experience as a father and a therapist to tell you in a simple to understand language how to better understand your/our children.
