My recent interview with Jonathan Wai, Ph.D. in Psychology Today outlines 9 ways to improve your child’s chances for success. The article has inspired much discussion online. What do you think of my “success” list below? Share your comments and join the conversation.
1. The crib as a metaphor for raising a child: kids need boundaries so they can have guidance but also freedom.
2. One way of setting boundaries is limiting screen time: “If we use them as pacifiers and think our children are going to get smarter we make a mistake”
3. Realize that your child may not be just like you, and that can be a good thing.
