Podcast and Discussion: Raising Resilient and Self-Disciplined Kids

How do we raise kids to be resilient and self disciplined?  We will be listening to a Creating A Family podcast with guest speaker Dr. Robert Brooks, Psychology Professor at Harvard and co-author of Raising Resilient Children and Raising a Self-Disciplined Child

  • What do we mean by a “resilient” child?
  • The importance of accepting children for who they really are, not who we want them to be.
  • When do you accept a child’s behavior and when do you try to change it?
  • Is temperament genetic?
  • The idea of “goodness of fit”
  • How to handle a untruthful child
  • Is “helicopter parenting” detrimental to raising resilient children?
  • How much communication between parents and children is healthy?
  • Stay-at-home parents vs. working parents
  • The downside to labeling children
  • Island of competence
  • How can a parent handle an explosive child?
  • Is spanking as a discipline technique detrimental to children?
  • The importance of scheduling time to have fun with your children.
