Get On Eye Level With Kids

Aug 29, 2022

A wonderful validation of what I teach parents happened to me on vacation a few weeks ago. One of the tips in the 10-week parent coaching program that I teach is to get on a kids eye level. So I did that to a kid in line at a McDonalds and you’ll never believe what happened! In this episode of the podcast, I explain why being on eye level when interacting with kids is so important, how it removes the “power differential”, and I talk about the connection that is formed when you get on eye level.
