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.



Knowing Your Child Part II


In this course we continue the learning about our athletes. In the first course we discussed the Power Differential and Trauma. We continue the journey into really knowing our athletes by discussing their Feelings,  Needs and Wants. It is a very insightful lesson that will help you the parent to assess what you really need to know about their feelings, needs and wants.

The second lesson is about why it is important to assess the environments your child lives in. Not necessarily to avoid them, but to discuss what skills need to be developed to succeed in them.

The third lesson is about assessing the behavior your young person is showing you. There is always so much more to what you see and in this lesson we help you identify the behaviors. Once you have identified then a course of action can be taken to correct and change those behaviors to allow your athlete to develop resiliency, focus, courage and understanding to move forward.
