Are you a conscious communicator?
Do you often wonder what to say to your kids?
I am talking to Lori Petro from TEACH Through Love.
Lori has created Conscious Communication cards to help parents become better, more effective communicators.
These “communication flash cards” help us transform the way we speak to our kids by turning our punitive and reactive language into compassionate communication which builds skills, relieves stress, and strengthens our relationships.
The hardest thing to do when you’re facing a toddler tantrum, dysregulated kid, or a defiant teen is to stay calm and respectful.
The cards not only help us curb negative behavior and influence our relationship for the better – they also provide a strong foundation of emotional intelligence which allows kids to flourish into thoughtful, caring, and responsible adults.
The cards show you how to restore your influence, reclaim your peace, and create healthy, intimate relationships with your kids. Finally – you can make requests that get HEARD.
There are 45 cards in each deck divided into three color-coded areas of challenge which help us target the root causes of conflict and address what’s really going on behind the behavior.
