We all want the best for our children--and everyday conversation offers one of the most profound and underused opportunities to help us bond as families and to help our kids thrive. But how can we make the most of this opportunity? This talk will explore the power of everyday conversation to strengthen our bonds while helping kids to become kinder, more confident, and more creative. It will offer inspiration and a set of strategies you can incorporate into your busy lives. Through this session, you'll gain a toolbox to enhance your family dynamics and better understand your kids, at all ages and stages of development.
