How can doing good for others benefit your child’s development and your family’s relationships?
You probably have heard Marti & Erin talk many times about the “3 Cs” that are so important to children’s learning and development: connection, competence and contribution. This week’s guest, Dr. Jenny Friedman, is devoting her life to helping families like yours find simple but powerful ways to engage children in the 3 Cs, with a special emphasis on “contribution.” You are sure to be inspired by the practical ideas and compelling reasons for getting your family on the path to doing good together!
In what ways have you and your family engaged in service together? What were the benefits you observed for you and your children? Please share your thoughts in our REPLY space below!
Note: You also will want to stay tuned through the end of the show for Relationships that Nurture, a brief monthly feature brought to you by St. David’s Center for Child & Family Development. This month’s segment includes tips for making the holidays more enjoyable – and less stressful – for your children and you.
