What is The Most Important Thing to Teach Your Child?

Brief radio spot as aired on KLBT 88.1

You probably know adults who don’t exhibit impulse control. They speak without thinking. They lash out without considering the results. They send out messages on social media when the impulse hits them. Wars-small and large-often start this way. A sign of true maturity is to control your feelings before speaking or acting. This is a learned skill that mothers and fathers can teach their children. And the children will grow into thoughtful adults.

I raised three children as a single mother before I remarried. I have experience the potholes, pests, and perils of being the single head-of-household. As an educator in regular and special education for twenty years I know a great deal about child development and how to handle kids. I am the founder of SMORE for Women, a nonprofit whose goal is Single Moms, Overjoyed, Rejuvenated, and Empowered. I’m also a Certified Professional Coach and my stories have been published in several books and magazines. My book, Living Learning Loving is available on Amazon.
