Knowing Your Child PArt II
When I hear people talk about juggling, or the sacrifices they make for their children, I look at them like they’re crazy, because ‘sacrifice’ infers that there was something better to do than being with your children.-Chris Rock

About this Course
In this course continue the conversation about knowing your child from part I where we discussed The Power Differential and Trauma.
The first lesson is about your child’s Feelings, Needs, and Wants. Even though we have raised them often times we can sometimes not really know what our children feel, need or want. Bob and Shawn have an in depth discussion to help you understand feelings so that you can help your child understand and express what they are feeling. Shawn discusses Maslow’s Hierarchy of the needs we all have. And lastly a discussion about letting your child express their wants and to develop a process to help them assess what they think they want.
The Second lesson is about the Environments your child lives in. Not all are ideal but they still have to participate in them. Bob and Shawn shed light on how to assess the environments and then how to have the discussions to navigate those environments. It is about skill building.
The Third and final lesson is a discussion on assessing the behavior of your child. What we see is often not the root cause of their behavior. Shawn will share his experience in the mental health field of how to properly assess and address thier behavior.
