Raising Emotionally and Socially Healthy Kids

By | March 28, 2018

As a parent, you can’t make friends for your children, nor can you prevent them from ever feeling hurt or upset. But with the right guidance, you can support them in learning how to solve problems, cope with feelings, and build satisfying relationships. Raising Emotionally and Socially Healthy Kids gives you access to the same practical advice and actionable plans that Dr. Kennedy-Moore – an in-demand psychologist and author who serves on the advisory board for Parents magazine – shares with clients in her Princeton, New Jersey, practice. Drawing from the her extensive clinical experience – as well as personal experience as a mother of four – these 12 lectures provide a deeper understanding of your child’s development and ways to address common stumbling blocks with compassion. In the first half, you’ll focus on emotional intelligence and the pivotal role parents can play in helping children understand and cope with their feelings. You’ll discover strategies for managing early-childhood meltdowns; simple techniques to inspire cooperation; constructive ways to deal with back-talk, aggression, and unkind behavior; methods to help children cope with anxiety; and more. In the latter half, you’ll turn to social intelligence and the challenges children face in making friends, plus practical ways you can guide them through the process. Here, you’ll explore how you can support your child in getting along with others; being a good sport; handling conflicts; dealing with bullying; and coping with gossip and cliques. You’ll conclude with a candid discussion of friendship in the digital age, looking at video game playing and the relatively new but troubling phenomena of cyberbullying and “Facebook depression”.

I recommend this practical course on raising kids I really like this course. Very practical, a refreshing change from the excellent academic courses I’ve taken by The Great Courses. I haven’t finished this course yet (I sometimes take a while to finish a course), but so far it’s very good. Dr. Kennedy-Moore is an accomplished psychologist, therapist, author, and speaker. She has all these qualities combined, which is rare. I have the CDs but in fact I have enjoyed the course so much that I just purchased the DVDs, to get even more out of the…
