How do we give our children our best effort 365 days a year? Today host Dr. Dan has a great conversation with guest Deborah Farmer Kris, PBS Parent's national columnist, child development specialist, education journalist, parent educator and the author of the “All the Time” picture book series.
In this episode, Dr. Dan and Deborah focus specifically on awe and wonder. What exactly is awe? What do we know about the benefits of awe? Is feeling awe within our control — or does it just “happen” to us unexpectedly? How do we help teenagers experience more awe? What about awe and screens?
Deborah and Dr. Dan discuss her fascinating research about what kids need to thrive and how she translates that research for parents and caregivers in order to make it simple, practical, accessible, and actionable.
Children are worth our best effort 365 days a year and this episode will inspire and awe parents! Find more about Deborah, her research, and her books on her website www.parenthood365.com.
